With options for space heating, domestic hot water or both, the Ecodan Hydrobox is a small form factor heating and cooling powerhouse. With capacities ranging from 5.0kW to 14.0kW, there is a Ecodan Hydronic Hydrobox for all residential or light commercial applications. The Hydrobox can be connected to underfloor, fan coils and radiators to provide a whole home central heating solution. For users wanting potable hot water, the Hydrobox can be connected to a third party coiled cylinder.

Reduced Environmental Impact with R32 Refrigerant
R32 has a Global Warming Potential (GWP) one third that of conventional R410A refrigerant. The use of the R32-compatible compressor and advanced control system allows for 30% reduction in refrigerant volume and approximately 75% reduction in CO2 equivalent in some models.

Ecodan Technology, Smart Energy Monitoring and System Management
State-of-the-art energy monitoring and management of the Ecodan Heat Pump System means families now have the visibility and freedom to efficiently manage their overall household power consumption for heating and hot water. Energy monitoring ensures households can take advantage of off-peak tariffs, providing them the ability to save even more on their power bill.
Smart Energy Monitoring
View electricity consumption and heat output on the remote controller. End-users can now easily check the following:
- Consumed electrical energy for space heating, cooling and domestic hot water (kWh)
- Delivered energy for space heating, cooling and domestic hot water (kWh)
- Daily, monthly and yearly data are stored and can be displayed using the main remote controller
- External power meter and heat meter can be connected for accurate measurement
- An SD card is included for storing usage data
Our advanced Auto Adaptation Function measures the room temperature and outdoor temperature, calculating the required heating capacity for the room. The flow temperature is automatically controlled according to the required heating capacity, while optimal room temperature is maintained at all times; ensuring the appropriate heating capacity and preventing energy wastage.
Future Room Temperature Estimation
2-Zone Control Allows you to Simultaneously Control Two Different Temperature Zones
Using Ecodan, it is possible to control two different flow temperatures, thereby managing two different heating load requirements. The system can adjust and maintain two flow temperatures when different temperatures are required for different rooms; for example, controlling a flow temperature of 40°C for the bedroom radiators and another flow temperature of 30°C for the living room underfloor heating.
Plate Heat Exchanger and Patented Scale Trap Technology*
The Ecodan Hydrobox contains Mitsubishi Electric's Aluminium Plate Heat Exchanger and patented Scale Trap Technology to help achieve greater efficiencies. In conventional systems, there is a risk of calcium scale building up on the Plate Heat Exchanger if it is exposed to tap water directly; therefore making it difficult to heat tap water. To resolve this problem, Ecodan is equipped with a “Scale Trap” that catches calcium nuclei in the tap water before it has a chance to grow into large scales, thereby inhibiting build-up in the External Heat Exchanger. Ecodan can use a Plate Heat Exchanger to heat tap water, resulting in much higher domestic hot water performance. In the case of special localised conditions such as very hard tap water, please consult a specialist before installation.
