We will review HVAC equipment, considering efficiency at full load and carbon dioxide emissions and relating it to Target Emission Rates and Building Emission Rates. Expert advise is a necessity and our Clean Air HVAC designers will be pleased to assist you.
The EPBD requires that all air conditioning systems with a rated output of 12kw or over are inspected by the 4 January 2011. This is a total figure combined from all air conditioning units controlled by your business. After this an inspection is necessary every 5 years. New systems installed on or after 1 January 2008 require their first inspection within 5 years of the install date.
The drive towards lower carbon emissions and a greener workplace has led to an extensive range of new obligations which are often complex to interpret. Clean Air can help! We have a keen understanding of the latest regulations and will guide you through your responsibilities. There really is no substitute for practical experience. Our indepth understanding of HVAC products and technologies combine with an appreciation of ‘real life’ capabilities. We know what products suit which applications best. This means that you can have confidence that our solutions will be appropriate, carefully considered and cost effective. We expect to save you money and repay capital expenditure quickly by lowering running costs and, where possible, applying for Carbon Trust incentives.
Quite possibly, contact our service or sales teams they may be able to send you copies or at least advise you how to proceed.
Air conditioning covers many things but is mainly, heating, cooling, ventilation, fresh air, filtration and control of humidity.
Comfort cooling mainly relates to provision of just cooling to improve comfort.
Close control air conditioning is really as the name implies, both temperature, humidity and air cleanliness are closely controlled and often to fine tolerances if necessary.
No more than you do or any ventilation system does for airborne viruses and bacteria. Many people are susceptible to dryness sometimes caused when an air conditioning system is badly designed or maintained and the relative humidity is reduced too much. It’s a fact that basically coughs and sneezes spread diseases, but some people will blame anything for their ills rather than understand the facts.
It is highly unlikely, you are more likely to catch it from a shower head in a hotel room that has not been used for a long time. But, legionella can be caught from the aerosol spray of infected cooling towers of larger, older and poorly maintained air conditioning systems.
Energy labelling is a new way of allowing consumers to easily compare and rate the efficiency of air conditioners and systems, similar to that used for domestic appliances such as fridge’s and washing machines etc.
Energy efficiency ratio is used to express the relative efficiency of a heating or cooling device by dividing the heat output by the power input. The higher the ratio compared to others, the better the system is.
Coefficient of Performance, which is the ratio between the power input and power output. For example a modern heat pump will provide 3kw of heat for 1kw of electrical power input. Therefore the COP is expressed as 3 – 1.
