    Ribbon cutting event for Midea's showroom.

Midea opened its first national showroom and distribution centre in Queens, New York with a special ribbon-cutting event.

The innovative space will make heat pumps more accessible for consumers and professionals alike, demonstrating Midea's commitment to equitably integrating advanced heat pump technology into homes across North America.

Located in Queens at the heart of New York City's five boroughs and in collaboration with Ai-Midea Air Conditioning, the showroom offers a unique opportunity for both HVAC professionals and consumers to get hands-on with the latest in heat pump technology from ducted and ductless whole home heating and cooling systems, heat pump water heaters and window heating and cooling units specifically designed to support multi-family buildings' transition towards electrification.

Among the notable products on display is a new cold climate heat pump, a standout participant in the Department of Energy (DOE) Cold Climate Heat Pump Challenge that achieved 118 per cent of rated capacity heating output at -15 degrees Fahrenheit.

The showroom also features the Midea Packaged Window Heat Pump (PWHP) – winner of the 2024 AHR Innovation Award and component of New York State's Clean Heat for All Challenge – as well as the new EVOX G3 ducted heat pump system.

The showroom will educate homeowners and contractors by illustrating the versatility of heat pump applications across different scenarios. From optimizing comfort in single-zone residential spaces to implementing comprehensive multi-zone heat pump systems, the displays are compatible with a wide range of climate conditions and living environments.

Midea has its very own Research and Development Centre in the US and technologies developed locally can be presented at the showroom.

Midea said the ribbon-cutting ceremony was a declaration of Midea's commitment to the US market and North America.

“The facility in Queens is just the beginning, with plans to introduce more showrooms across the New York metropolitan area and expand with additional distributors and showrooms across the country,” a company spokesperson said.
