Mitsubishi Electric Trane HVAC US LLC, (METUS), a leading supplier of Ductless and Ducted Mini-split and Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) heat pump and air-conditioning systems, will introduce a new integration for its all-climate heat pumps with SPAN.IO, INC. (SPAN), maker of the leading smart electrical panel. The collaboration between these award-winning category leaders is anticipated to accelerate household electrification and energy efficiency.

 The METUS-SPAN product integration, once available, is anticipated to help homeowners eliminate dependence on fossil-fuel-reliant heating and cooling systems and conventional electrical panels. In a METUS-conducted survey in 2023 of approximately 1000 U.S. homeowners, almost 83% of respondents stated that they are either “somewhat concerned”, “very concerned” or “extremely concerned” about the impact of energy bills on their household budget. Mitsubishi Electric’s all-electric heating and cooling systems are designed to reduce energy use compared to conventional HVAC systems.

The METUS-SPAN integration, activated through the kumo cloud® app, is anticipated to help HVAC contractors reduce installation time by reducing the need for additional coordination with utilities to replace the electrical service to a home. By using the SPAN panel, homeowners may avoid the cost and inconvenience of an electrical service upgrade from their utility. SPAN Panels are designed to allow homeowners to make upgrades while using their home’s existing electrical service.
