UCL switches to R32 with Mitsubishi Electric

UCL, R32, Mitsubishi Electric

One of University College London’s (UCL) main buildings has been equipped with a new R32 air conditioning system from Mitsubishi Electric.

The Division of Biosciences at UCL is housed in the Rockefeller Building, a seven-storey block close to Euston Station. The college needed a quick and efficient heating and cooling system, which also met UCL’s environmental requirements.

Mitsubishi Electric’s M Series MSZ-LN was chosen due to the pivotal role R32 will play in meeting future legislation. Keith Kerridge, building services manager for UCL Estates, says: “We wanted a system that would provide a comfortable environment as well as being environmentally friendly. The M Series MSZ-LN suits our needs perfectly.”
