Mitsubishi Electric has announced an association with TV presenter, architect, lecturer and writer, George Clarke, to help promote Ecodan air source heat pumps.
Best known for the Channel 4 programmes George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces, The Home Show and Restoration Man, George is an advocate of design excellence and high levels of quality in the construction industry.
In addition to his TV work, George is creative director of George Clarke + Partners and has set up the charity, Ministry of Building Innovation and Education (MOBIE) to inspire new generations into the building profession.
Donald Daw, Commercial Director for Mitsubishi Electric Living Environment Systems, commented: “For us, George is a perfect fit with Ecodan 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.”
George will also help to promote renewable heating and write a monthly column on the company’s blogsite, which covers a range of topics surrounding energy use in buildings.
George commented: “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.
“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.”
