Mitsubishi Electric Air Conditioning

Mitsubishi banner

Mitsubishi is a trusted household name known the world over and associated with a variety of excellent products and services. Originating in the shipping industry back in 1870, the Mitsubishi group has grown into one of the worlds finest corporations. The diverse businesses that have sprung from Mitsubishi share a name to be proud of and a wealth of knowledge and expertise covering many industries, including involvement in shipping, satellite communication, motors, security and expertise in electronics and electrical equipment.

The air conditioning division of Mitsubishi Electric was founded in 1955 (Shizuoka-work Japan) and quickly established itself at the forefront of the industry – a position still enjoyed today. The company was established in Scotland in 1993. With 50 years experience in developing air conditioning systems, we continue to benefit from the sheer size and diversity of the Mitsubishi group. With modern building insulation now at its best and electronic equipment galore in our homes and workplaces, the need for effective heating and cooling is paramount. Our cost-effective, energy-conscious systems are expertly designed to provide the consumer with constant, comfortable living and working environments.

Driven by latest technology

At Mitsubishi Electric we continually strive to meet the increasing demands of our customers. We were the first in the industry to offer highly advanced inverter driven systems. Using inverter technology our systems produce just the right amount of output to match the exact requirement of any building. These systems work so efficiently that they don’t waste valuable energy by over-heating or over-cooling, resulting in greatly reduced running costs. Alternative systems that may appear cheaper can often cost substantially more to run, making us the most cost-effective choice all round.

The use of ever-advancing technology brings with it the need to implement, maintain, constantly review and improve processes in order to maintain quality. Lean is a way of life at Mitsubishi and the company has built on this culture during its time at Livingston.

Protecting the environment


As scientific evidence points to man-made chemicals for the damage caused to the ozone layer, we only use chlorine-free refrigerants that are safe and have zero ozone depletion potential. Accordingly, as our systems require less energy to run, they have significantly lower indirect global warming potential too. In short, our constant investment and product development enables us to provide the most efficient equipment possible, whilst protecting the environment at the same time.
