Today’s commercial buildings are increasingly air-tight and filled with heat generating office equipment and lighting, which presents a problem for anyone trying to maintain a stable and comfortable internal environment. With buildings accounting for around half of all UK greenhouse emissions, legislation is demanding higher standards of air quality and increased energy efficiency. To reduce the impact of the built environment the challenge is to find cooling, heating and ventilation solutions that match energy efficiency with complete flexibility of design and control. Today’s innovative and pioneering air conditioning systems offer more than double the efficiency levels of 10-15 year old systems and can also be far more efficient than traditional methods of cooling and heating buildings, resulting in reduced running costs and lower carbon emissions. Today’s systems can simultaneously heat and cool different spaces to balance energy use across a building and sanitary hot water can even be supplied from the same system.
The benefits of air conditioning
We pride ourselves in installing high performance and competitive systems with low running costs. By utilising heat pump technology air conditioning units not only provide cooling, but also heating and often sanitary hot water. Heat pump technology requires only a small amount of electricity to harvest, upgrade and move heat from one location to another and providing heating and hot water as part of an integrated air conditioning system is far more efficient than traditional heating methods such as gas.
Split-Systems are smaller and typically consist of one outdoor unit running up to eight indoor units, making them ideal for small to medium sized applications such as retail units and small offices. Whether it is wall mounted, floor standing, ducted, ceiling cassette or ceiling suspended, a system is available to meet all requirements.
VRF Systems can run numerous indoor units connected to one outdoor unit, making them suitable for medium to large buildings that demand high performance with optimum efficiency.
Heat pump systems deliver cooling or heating to a space, whereas heat recovery systems can simultaneously provide cooling and heating at the same time via separate indoor units, moving energy around a building for maximum efficiency.
