With the UK’s ever changing climate, temperatures reaching record highs followed by long cold winters it’s not surprising air conditioning has become so popular.
There are so many different types of air conditioning applications from domestic to commercial and industrial, each and every requirement has to be fulfilled with the right system for heating and cooling.
Domestic air conditioning applications tend to be quite simple. A standard split or multi split air conditioning system would be adequate.
Commercial and industrial air conditioning on the over hand can prove to be a more technical, with so many manufactures offering many different systems and the clients specific requirements need to be calculated to develop the right application.
Commercial and industrial air conditioning applications include:
Split air conditioners – single indoor unit connected to outdoor unit for heating and cooling purposes.
Multi split air conditioners – multiple indoor units connected to a single outdoor unit for heating and cooling purposes.
VRV’s (variable refrigerant volume) or VRF’s (variable refrigerant flow) – several indoor units connected to a single outdoor unit for heating and cooling purposes.
Closed water chilled systems – Refrigeration plant designed to chill water and circulate to multiple fan coils, two pipe systems for cooling only and four pipe systems for both heating and cooling.
Open water chilled systems – evaporative condensers or cooling towers are normally used for evaporative cooling.
