An existing client of New-Air required additional laboratory areas to be constructed at their premises. We had already successfully installed a number of air conditioning systems within various areas and were employed by the client to condition a further two areas.
The laboratory areas presented limited options for the installation of internal units due to shelving and low level storage on the perimeter walls and a plasterboard ceiling with surface mounted lighting modules. We carried out detailed heat gain calculations to include a review of each environments heat loads taking into consideration a number of factors such as electrical loads, solar / fabric gains and occupancy. A report was presented to our clients and we selected under ceiling type fan coils to be installed as they would provide optimum air distribution within the working environments.
Control of the systems is via a 24 hour programmable timer installed within each area to provide the occupants with control of a desired temperature set point.
All site systems operate on energy efficient inverter technology and are charged with R410a ozone friendly refrigerant.
We now carry out the scheduled routine maintenance of all site equipment to ensure equipment efficiencies are maintained which includes an annual leak test of the site systems in line with the current F-Gas regulations.
