Decluttering and being space savvy with appliances are right on trend in homes right now.

Everything from home appliances, laundries and linen cupboards can all benefit from a space-saving makeover.

So what about heating?

Heat pumps are a great way to save space for your flooring – but if you prefer wall space to floor space what is an alternative option?

Floor consoles are heat pumps that are mounted to the floor, while still providing many of the benefits of a high wall heating system.

What are the advantages of installing a floor console?

Floor consoles are perfect for homes where wall space rates higher than floor space. 

Many of our customers have added these heating and cooling systems to their renovated homes – where they can fit snuggly into gaps. For example, if you are removing an old fireplace but aren’t sure what to put in the gap instead – that’s where a floor console would be ideal.

What is the difference between a floor console and a heat pump?

Floor consoles are installed on the floor, or lower areas of walls while high wall heat pumps are installed higher up on wall surfaces.

A floor console can fit into a gap in the wall or be installed in a recess to sit flush with the wall. A heat pump is installed on a wall surface but does not sit inside a recess.

Both are excellent heating and cooling system and have great energy efficiency.

Should I get a floor console installed?

Modern floor consoles have a slimline design – meaning they sit closer to the wall and don’t protrude so much over your precious floor space. Or the alternative is to install them recessed in walls so they don’t protrude at all.

They are the perfect option for small to large rooms, renovations, or office rooms.

With Mitsubishi Electric’s Rapidheat technology, floor consoles are powerful enough to heat the whole space they are installed in.
