One of the leading suppliers of air conditioning in the UK has revealed it will no-longer promote cooling-only products in this country.
A company statement said the move comes on the back of rapid advances in air conditioning and heat pump systems over the last five years.
Mitsubishi claimed this technology was now often the most energy efficient and cost-effective way of heating and cooling a building.
'Air conditioning is now ideal as the primary source of heating and cooling for the majority of commercial applications,' said commercial director Donald Daw.
'Heat pumps are one of the lowest carbon ways to heat a building and we are ensuring that we encourage as many heating installations as possible.'
It is currently phasing out all existing models from stock.
The initiative is partof Mitsubishi's Green Gateway Initiative, for more information see the website.
