Mitsubishi Electric Cooling & Heating Launches National Multimedia Ad Campaign

Tuesday, May 24, 2011

SUWANEE, Ga., May 24, 2011 - On May 13, millions of people across the country began to see new ads from Mitsubishi Electric Cooling & Heating (Mitsubishi Electric) on TV, in print and online as the HVAC ductless leader rolled out its new "Split Personality" campaign.

The new light-hearted creative showcases a homeowner's split personalities - one who wants to be comfortable and the other who wants to save money - physically battling each other, with Mitsubishi Electric's ductless unit offering an efficient solution for staying cool that pleases both "sides." This ad creative is meant to drive consumer business to contractors by increasing homeowner awareness of Mitsubishi Electric's energy-efficient ductless technology.

"We wanted the ad campaign to be relevant to both consumers and contractors," said Joe Mastroianni, chief marketing officer, Mitsubishi Electric Cooling & Heating. "Our goal was to communicate Mitsubishi Electric's product benefits in an entertaining, attention-grabbing way. They offer a great jumping off point for contractors to communicate advantages of ductless systems to the consumer, greatly expanding selling opportunities."

The broadcast ad campaign also introduces Mitsubishi Electric's new brand logo and the "Live Better" brand promise that reflects Mitsubishi Electric's commitment to producing cooling and heating systems that make homeowners' lives more comfortable.

The media buy for the new campaign is the largest of its kind in the category and marks Mitsubishi Electric's network television debut, creating more exposure for the product than ever before. "We're confident in the breakthrough potential of the 'split personality' campaign to help us reach new national levels of awareness with engaging content and creative that's memorable to our target audience," said Mastroianni.

The new campaign can be seen in a wide variety of media, including television ads during prime time shows on Fox, ABC and CBS, as well as on cable outlets such as HGTV and the DIY Network. Print ads will run in top home and remodeling publications, such as Better Homes and Gardens and Southern Living, and online on websites such as ThisOldHouse.com.
