Cost savings on air conditioning can be significant in public buildings.


Posted by Simon Keel, Senior Product Specialist, Daikin Airconditioning UK Ltd
 

In my previous blogs I have talked about how to reduce carbon emissions from our buildings and the associated cost benefits this may bring. I've talked about heat pumps and how they can contribute to carbon reduction targets due to the outstanding efficiencies achieved through heat recovery, plus the benefits that air conditioning inspections can bring to a building.

Property managers could be forgiven for feeling bogged down by what may be viewed as a constant bombardment of changing carbon reduction legislation. There is a continual raft of changing rules and regulations that needs to be understood and addressed in the battle to reduce the energy used in, and the carbon produced by, our buildings. This is especially true in the public sector, which is expected to lead the way in carbon reduction, while being under ever greater pressure to reduce running costs.

Heat Recovery – vital to optimum heating efficiency

If the utopia of zero carbon buildings is to be achieved, heat recovery needs to be incorporated into a well designed and fully integrated climate control system.

The time is right for heat pumps

Heat pumps have received a great deal of attention in the heating, ventilation and air conditioning industry for their superior energy efficiency and sustainability credentials. But the wider construction market is yet to catch on to their transformative potential in reducing carbon emissions from our buildings.
