Mitsubishi Electric‘s Ecodan air source heat pumps will receive promotion by George Clarke, after an association between the company and the TV presenter, architect, lecturer and writer was announced.
Best known for the Channel 4 shows George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces, The Home Show and Restoration Man, Clarke is a passionate advocate of design excellence and high levels of quality in the construction industry.
He is also the creative director of George Clarke + Partners and has set up the charity, Ministry of Building Innovation and Education (MOBIE), designed to inspire new generations into the building industry to “fundamentally transform” the way we think about, design and construct homes and bridge the skills gap.
‘because he is such an inspiring pioneer and a real advocate of the need to build quality into the homes that the nation desperately needs,’
Donald Daw, Commercial Director for Mitsubishi Electric Living Environment Systems, described George as the ‘perfect fit’ for Ecodan, as he is such an ‘inspiring pioneer’ and a ‘real advocate of the need to build quality into the homes’.
Mr Clarke will by promoting renewable heating and writing a monthly column on the company’s award-winning blogsite, TheHub.mitsubishielectric.co.uk, which features a wide range of informative and useful topics involving energy use in buildings.
“We know we need to build a lot of homes each year to address the serious housing shortage but we also need to make sure that we build quality homes and they need to be built right across the country,” George commented.
“The way we design, build, heat, power and recycle our homes needs to change and change quickly and renewable heating is an important part of our future.
“I’m therefore delighted to associate myself with the market-leading brand of heat pumps which are built here in the UK and which can help reduce energy bills and lower emissions for almost any home.”
The Government has already seen the value of heat pumps in helping reduce household fuel bills and lowering the nation’s overall emissions levels, with the Committee on Climate Change forecasting heat pump sales will surpass one million units per year by 2030.
