Reliable air conditioning is the key the to loyal end users

According to Tony Nielsen Product & Marketing Manager at FG Eurofred, it doesn't matter how efficient an air conditioning system is, "if it isn't reliable, all other considerations go out of the window".

"An end user or installer will have many criteria on the agenda when choosing an air con system which will certainly include capital cost; efficiency; aesthetic design; noise levels; physical size, etc. But, if we get right back to basics, the two most important aspects for customer satisfaction are reliability and service," says Nielsen, who argues that these two aspects are the cornerstones on which great supplier/customer relationships are built.

"Reliability is one of the most important selection criteria for specifiers and installers. The last thing they want is to be forever revisiting a job to put right inadequacies in the equipment. They want to be able to install the equipment, commission it - and move on to the next job. They want to fit and forget.

"End-users will have made significant investment in the whole installation and they want to be assured that their new air con system is going to be trouble free for many years to come because it is engineered to be reliable.

"Nowadays the end user is far more knowledgeable and, thanks to the internet, is doing a lot more research before committing to buying anything and that includes heating and ventilation products.

"Installers judge on problems. Just imagine you have a car that keeps breaking down. When you come to replace it you are not going to go with that make again. You will shop around, listen to owners with good experiences of other brands and try something else. It is exactly the same with air conditioning so it is of the utmost importance that as manufacturers we supply products and systems which are 100 per cent reliable and fit for purpose," says Nielsen.

Manufacturers now have to offer more choice than ever before to satisfy consumers' demands: as a result of this trend end users can now choose between floor standing, wall, ceiling or window mounted, ceiling cassette or discreet ducted air conditioning systems as opposed to the old days (not so long ago) when they just took what they were given. Nowadays, engineering is at its highest level of reliability with on-board computer technology enhancing performance output.

"Air conditioning is not a luxury in business these days, it has become a necessity: a unit breaking down can have a catastrophic effect on a business or organisation. More and more offices are suffering from high heat loads generated by IT and telecommunications equipment. Reliable air conditioners can improve working conditions by providing a flow of cool air throughout the space improving working conditions of the staff and safeguarding valuable equipment from overheating. It is yet another example of where reliability is absolutely essential," adds Nielsen.

Specifiers and buyers will be looking for environmentally friendly refrigerant and state-of- the-art inverter technology for superb energy efficient performance. Manufacturers are being kept on their toes, with constant research & development programmes to devise ways to manufacture smaller, quieter, more powerful units with inherent reliability.

"These are very tough trading times for everybody. At the end of the day, the last thing anyone needs is unreliable product: it has to returns very good value for money and be extremely reliable," says Nielsen.

"Reliability goes hand in hand with after-sales support and service. It is important that any national service department is comprised of engineers with in depth experience and extensive knowledge of their product," says Nielsen. "They are there to provide support to installer partners with either advice over the phone or hands-on assistance. The combination of product knowledge and expertise means whatever the circumstances, it will be a fast fix.

"Only by listening and responding to customers' wishes and providing that vital component - reliability - can a manufacturer succeed in the present climate and beyond," says Nielsen.

Fujitsu Air conditioning serves Chinese market on its own doorstep

Fujitsu has just completed the supply and installation of its ground breaking AIRSTAGE® multi air conditioning system in the prestigious World Trade Center Changzhou, China.

No fewer than 166 AIRSTAGE® systems, consisting of 496 outdoor units and 2,142 indoor units, are now up and running in this major development and were successfully in place in time for the grand opening.

The products were supplied from the FGCA Wuxi facility in Jiangsu Province, which are both the production base for Fujitsu multi air conditioning systems for buildings and the company's sales base for the Chinese market. FGCA was awarded the order for the supply and installation of AIRSTAGE® to the World Trade Center Changzhou because of its proven energy-saving performance, past sales record and reputation for high quality installations. The after-sales service setup, with its quick follow-up, was also a significant reason for the contract being offered to the company.

"The AIRSTAGE® systems we supplied to the World Trade Centre can individually adjust temperature for all of the 450 rooms in the building to provide a comfortable environment. Also, by adopting the centralised control system, collective centralised control of all outdoor units and indoor units is also possible, which can optimise the air conditioning of the whole building and reduce the consumption of electricity," says a Fujitsu spokesman.

China is the world's biggest market for multi air conditioning system for commercial buildings, accounting for 132,000 sets (around 33 per cent of the world market in 2008). The Chinese market looks set to expand even further as building construction takes off at high speed because of the continuing development of urban areas.

The next two years have been designated by the Chinese government as a period of economic stimulation and public capital investment. This investment is forecast to boost the market expansion of multi air conditioning system for buildings. In China, improved quality of life supported by high economic growth has resulted in higher demand for air conditioners which offer both comfort and energy-saving performance in a climate in which environmental issues and electricity shortage are increasing concerns.

Fujitsu has been developing large and small inverter air conditioners excelling in energy-saving performance and comfort which are already proving extremely popular in the Chinese market.

AIRSTAGE® is the registered trademark of Fujitsu General Limited.

Air Conditioning energy efficiency has never been more important

Energy efficiency has never been more important. Every business has a need for it, every government has an agenda for it, and every vendor wants to tell you how they build it into their products. As manufacturers of some of the most efficient air-conditioning units on the market, Fujitsu knows more than most about energy efficiency. But it occurred to us that it is not just about the products. Every installer, specifier, contractor and architect is now expected to help tenants and users to get the most efficient use out of their air-conditioning systems. And there are a number of ways in which efficiency can be improved. So we have put together a short summary of the key factors that can affect the efficiency of your air conditioning. If this is the first time you have really considered this issue, we hope this will be a really useful guide and perhaps something of an eye opener to how energy efficiency works in the air-conditioning world. On the other hand, if you are an experienced HVAC practitioner, you will nevertheless appreciate a checklist to make sure you are covering every option and achieving the best levels of efficiency for your customers.
Energy efficiency can be impaired or improved (depending on your viewpoint) by a number of factors, including the following:


1. Planning ahead

It is always worth ‘planning ahead’ when considering the air conditioning of a space. Is it going to be for open plan usage or will it be zoned at a later date?
Where will the equipment be sited?
What is the future usage going to be?
Consideration of all these points will assist in selecting the right air-conditioning equipment for the application intended. Smaller ducted units will allow for future zoning of the space, whereas cassette type indoor units will restrict this. Spare a thought for the location of the indoor and outdoor units since excessive pipe runs should be avoided as a severe drop off in performance will be experienced. If considering the use of heat recovery VRF systems, try and create a balance of indoor
units that require heating with that of indoor units requiring cooling, in addition to giving consideration to building diversity. Always provide suitable service access for engineers to carry out effective system maintenance in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendations.


2. Selection/sizing

Correct sizing and selection of air-conditioning equipment is key to achieving optimum energy efficiency. Over-sizing in itself doesn’t render the system operationally inefficient. However, increased power consumption over the lifetime of the system can prove otherwise. Alternatively, under-sizing the system can result in excessive operation during normal system lifetime and can cause premature failure. Of course, where possible, select A/A rated equipment with the latest in DC inverter technology. Ensure consideration is given to using the correct UK design criteria when choosing equipment, as nominal capacities normally quoted within manufacturers’ literature can result in the incorrect sizing of the equipment. It is also important to adhere to the manufacturers’ recommended pipe sizes and maximum pipe lengths as system capacity will reduce significantly if these are exceeded


3. Control/set point


The most energy-efficient air conditioning systems installed in any application can be rendered energy inefficient if not controlled in the correct manner. Most of today’s control options can greatly increase the efficiency of an air-conditioning system. Control of operation times and set-point temperatures are the most basic and fundamental of control functions that will enhance system efficiency. However, depending upon size and type of air conditioning system installed, more sophisticated
control systems should be considered so that additional functions such as ‘night set back’, centralised set-point control and occupation detection facilities can be utilised to improve operation. It is always worth asking users how they expect to use the space that is to be air conditioned. Also consider options available on air conditioning systems, such as Energy Saving and Economy modes. Always be aware of the competition by users to either have the maximum heating temperature set point compared to the lowest cooling set point. Centralised control should be considered for this instance as constant adjustment of the set point will only result in erratic operation of the system and a reduced level of efficiency, not to mention the most
uncomfortable conditioned space. Finally, avoid the possibility of independent systems ‘fighting’ against each other whilst in different operating modes, ie one system heating whilst another is cooling in the same space.

4. Refrigerant charge

Paying attention to refrigerant charge is important for any air-conditioning system. Undercharging will result in the starvation of refrigerant within the system, in turn reducing the ability of the refrigerant to absorb the required amount of energy to satisfy the heating or cooling demand of the conditioned space. Operation times will subsequently increase and defrost cycles will become more frequent creating higher risk of system failure and reduced capacity and space temperature control. If a system is undercharged, always check for leaks within the pipe work and equipment and repair or replace as necessary before re-charging. Also be aware that some refrigeration systems may also be subject to routine leakage testing requirements
under the F-gas regulation (EC Regulation No. 842/2006 on Certain Fluorinated Greenhouse Gases).Frequently, these issues stem from poorly planned installation in the first place that make inspection and maintenance difficult or even impossible. If the filter or coils cannot be inspected or cleaned, the system’s efficiency will be dramatically reduced as the airflow across the coils becomes restricted. Over time this will result in costly repairs to the condenser as the compressor will inevitably fail.

5. Insulation

Poorly insulated and/or damaged insulation on pipe work breaks the vapour seal flowing condensation to form on the pipe. This condensation can soak into the insulation destroying the thermal insulation properties. The resulting exposed pipes will decrease the system’s efficiency. Many split system expansion devices are located in the outdoor unit and poorly insulated pipe work can affect the efficiency of the air conditioning system. Exposed pipes will act like a heat exchanger and absorb or reject energy before the refrigerant reaches the indoor or outdoor unit
reducing the performance of the air conditioning system. Always ensure pipe work insulation is of the correct quality and standard as recommended by the manufacture and/or in line with good refrigeration installation practice.

6. Servicing and access

Too often, system maintenance is neglected – and even the most efficient air-conditioning systems will not fulfil their operating potential if not serviced
regularly. Regular maintenance checks will ensure your air-conditioning system operates as efficiently as possible. Energy consumption can increase by as
much as 60% as a result of replacing poorly maintained or dirty components. Simple routine maintenance such as checking and cleaning fans, filters, coils/heat exchangers and any associated ductwork will maintain system efficiency.
Frequently, poor planning with regards to system location makes it impossible for service engineers to gain safe and suitable access to units on routine maintenance visits. Reference should always be made to the manufacturer’s recommendations to
location and service space requirements as detailed within installation and maintenance manuals.

7. Air distribution

Good air distribution is key to an effective and efficient air-conditioning system. Where applicable, particular attention must be paid to effective and correct ductwork design so as not to impair airflow over the system. Consider the distribution of air into the conditioned space. Avoid ‘dead zones’ and draughts as they may lead to the occupants using the controls erratically. Always consider the usage of the space
and the furnishing within the space to avoid any possible ‘short circuiting’ of airflow.

8. Usage & the people factor

Understanding how and when to use your airconditioner is also a pre-requisite for energy efficiency. Basic functions such as fan speed and louvre angle can be adjusted to improve efficiency. Use external shading to reduce the amount of light/
heat entering a space, and louvres can be retrofitted to buildings to provide shade during summer whilst allowing lower winter sun to penetrate the area. Blinds can also be angled to reduce solar heat gains whilst reflecting light onto walls and ceilings to reduce demand for electric lighting. While these are all things you can do to boost efficiency, all this work can be undone by the ‘human factor’ – ie if occupants leave doors and windows open.

The answer is not usually to issue a set of rules, but to encourage staff involvement by demonstrating how they can be more in control of their own environment. Explain how thermostats operate and give guidance on recommended operating temperatures and on how to set heating or cooling units correctly. Display instructions on individual
units and ensure that remote controls are accessible. It has also been observed that where other energysaving measures are in place [eg PIR-activated lighting], users are more aware of their responsibilities and react by being less wasteful. This is more a people issue than a technical one, but vital to the overall performance and efficiency of a system.

FGE Fujitsu Air Conditioning Training and skills provision to dominate the contractor marketplace

The UK a/c marketplace is rapidly changing and developing with new legislation, new products, innovations and working practises. Contractors will need to continuously look at their training needs and requirements in order to capitalise their skills into increased profits.

Tony Gittings looks at the possible shape of things to come in the a/c marketplace.

All industry reports and surveys show that there is a long term industry skills shortage - despite the recession. It could even be worse when the recession eases off and business levels begin to increase. And this is in the face of the exemplary work carried out by all the training organisations, training providers, trade bodies and associations.

However, the current training provision in the a/c vrf and splits sector needs continuous investment. If the industry is going to progress, all parties concerned - manufacturers, distributors, contractors - need to address this iceberg-shaped of a problem.

In some sectors there is adequate provision for training. For example, on very large systems - the huge developments of multi-storey office blocks in cities. But there is a huge and growing marketplace for mini-vrf systems in a whole variety of sites. There are new products coming on to the marketplace which employ vrf technology and principles. Today you can get either a mini or smaller duty vrf system for just about any site - small or medium sized hotels, multi unit retail sites, office suites, fitness and sports centres etc. These new types of products need and demand new training provisions.

We believe that the marketplace is about to undergo a radical change in coping with the impending skills shortage. Virtually all manufacturers of all hvac products are constantly trying to simplify installation and commissioning. And the extreme economic conditions have meant that the whole construction industry has to re-think how and what it offers.

We are putting into place a whole series of investments based around training and a major focus on technical support. Before the end of 2010 we will have made major investments in both dedicated training facilities and front-line technical support services.

We are planning to update our existing fully equipped and staffed dedicated Training Centre in the first part of next year. We are planning to stage certified and approved industry courses with accredited examiners coming in for final examinations. We expect to be able to train 600 a/c engineers and contractors in a time span of 12 - 15 months.

The training courses will include the splits sector along with other ones on vrf, system design, installation procedures, commissioning, maintenance, diagnostics and trouble-shooting.

It is our clear intention to become a centre of excellence in all matters related to the UK a/c industry at all levels.

The a/c industry, at the moment, has not been put in a spotlight on a global scale - witness the media attention to the Cophagen conference. It is not difficult to envisage that, as energy consumption becomes more critical, there will be legislation requiring minimum installation standards and minimum system performance by a/c products.

Every day we see evidence which points to the fact that the industry - despite the cold weather of earlier this year - could be facing a skills shortage in the very near future. It is a collective effort. Companies have to realise that they cannot rely on others to provide the next generation. It has to be a team effort.

I believe that it is of critical importance to our industry that it must invest in the next generation, if the skills crisis is to be avoided and the industry recover and prosper. The investment must also include the new tools of the coming generation - the internet. For this reason we have invested many thousands of pounds in a fully interactive and fully engaged website with ‘webinars', blogs and easily downloadable product, sales and technical files and information.

The Fujitsu training courses will include the following:

VRF System Application and Design. The course is primarily aimed at consultants, specifiers, sales engineers and contracts engineers.

VRF System Installation and Commissioning. This course is of special benefit for refrigeration system installation engineers and refrigeration system commissioning engineers.

VRF System Advanced Service and Troubleshooting. Candidates should have ideally have attended the VRF System Installation and Commissioning Course, although this is not mandatory. Engineers involved with troubleshooting VRF Systems and Distribution Support Engineers will find this course especially useful. The course aims to impart the specialist knowledge needed to commission and troubleshoot this type of VRF system using the service tool software.

J-Series (mini VRF) VRF Product Training Course. The course is primarily aimed at sales engineers, contracts engineers, refrigeration system installation engineers and refrigeration system commissioning engineers.

Split System Installation, Commissioning and Trouble Shooting. The course is primarily aimed at split system installation engineers and split system commissioning engineers.

The one-day ‘on demand' courses are led by tutors who have in depth knowledge and experience of Fujitsu products and know what it is like for installers operating in the real world. The courses run from 9.30 am to 4 pm and are held at FG Eurofred's fully equipped air conditioning training and demonstration facility at its headquarters in Elstree, Hertfordshire.

Throughout the courses, which accommodate 8-10 attendees per course, practical exercises will reinforce the learning process and the courses will finish with a useful Q & A session.

UK Air Conditioning Firm avoids £50k scam thanks to vigilant bank

BY KEELEY KNOWLES

A business had a lucky escape from a suspected scam after being asked to transfer almost £50,000 to a company in Dubai.
Orion Air Conditioning & Refrigeration Ltd, based at Bedford Technology Park, Thurleigh, was initially contacted by a man called ‘John’ who said he was from A-Four General Trading LLC in Dubai last month. He wanted to order around £5,000 of solar panels to be delivered to the country.
The sales team sent him an invoice with the firm’s bank details so he could pay the sum.
But earlier this month, Sean Handley, sales director at Orion, said they received notification from their bank – Lloyds TSB – about a cheque paid in to the branch in the High Street, Bedford, suspected to be fraudulent/counterfeit of £49,600.
In the meantime the company had received an email from the same address – this time from somebody called Mike – asking to confirm the payment ‘as soon as possible to enable us to proceed’.
It said that due to an ‘erroneous blunder made by the financial department’ they issued Orion’s payment with another company’s payment – therefore resulting in the £49,600 instead of the £4,797.
Mr Handley said: “The scariest thing about this is that somebody actually went into our branch bank in Bedford to pay in the cheque. We do deal with companies in Dubai so had no reason to suspect the order initially and so sent them our bank details.
“But what happens is that they then say they have overpaid you and ask you to transfer the money back to their account. While it shows on your account, it hasn’t actually cleared, so if you transfer the money then you’ll be out of pocket.” Mr Handley said he contacted the named ‘drawer’ of the cheque – an independent retailing and distribution company CJ Lang & Son Ltd, based in Dundee, and was told that somebody had stolen their cheque book a number of years ago.
He added: “When I spoke to them they said they had received a few calls about it. Luckily, Lloyds Bank is on the ball with this sort of thing and flagged it up before it got any further.” A spokeswoman for Bedfordshire Police said that a statement would be taken from Mr Handley and his colleague next month but it was likely the case would be referred to a police force in Scotland.
A spokesman for C J Lang & Son Ltd said: “We do not have a trading relationship with Orion nor have we issued any cheques to them.
“The cheque which Orion received is undoubtedly a forgery. We are grateful to Orion for making us aware of this attempted fraud and we have advised our bankers accordingly.”
A spokesman for Lloyds said: “We take fraud extremely seriously. We have a range of measures in place to help detect and prevent instances of fraud, but we also urge our customers to remain vigilant to suspicious activity relating to their businesses.” We could find no record of A-Four General Trading LLC in Dubai.

Panasonic Air Conditioning Best Selling Air Conditioning Company In Australia After Out Selling Fujitsu

EXCLUSIVE: Fujitsu invented the plasma TV, Panasonic took it to #1 in Australia, now Panasonic has snared Fujitsu’s air conditioning crown according to GFK data by taking over the #1 slot for retail sales of air conditioning.

Fujitsu invented the plasma TV, Panasonic took it to #1 in Australia, now Panasonic has snared Fujitsu's air conditioning crown according to GFK data by taking over the #1 slot for retail sales of air conditioning.

"We took over the #1 slot in the air conditioning market November 2010 and we have continued to grow share" said Panasonic CEO Steve Rust who believes that his Company now has a major advantage due to their recent acquisition of Sanyo.

"The air conditioning market in the future is going to be all about control. Utility Companies are now working with Federal Government and State Governments to introduce new ways to control air condition and in the future that may mean Utility Companies having the power to control air conditioning in both winter and summer".

"Both Panasonic and Sanyo have control technology that is specifically designed to help consumers lower the cost of running an air conditioning system, which is often the biggest contributor to power use on a grid. We have already had blackouts in Sydney and both power utilities and Governments are away of the issues associated with air conditioning use." Rust said.

"Utility Companies in Australia are already trialling control technology linked to air conditioning systems which in the future, they will be able to control when demand on the grid reaches a peak. Consumer running an air conditioner at 16 degrees may find it reset to 19 degrees and in winter the heating cut back" said Rust.
Rust said that while the 2010/2011 season for air conditioning sales in Australia had been "difficult" he claimed that he was confident that the Japanese Company could hold onto their market share.

"We are looking to expand our air conditioning operation as a result we are looking to hire additional people. We are looking to expand our commercial offering and the business we get via installers" he said.

He claimed that a move to merchandising installer's vans and the offering of marketing incentives had led to a surge in installers wanting to sell Panasonic air conditioning solutions.
According to GFK data Panasonic now has 25% of the Australian retail, air conditioning market.

Installation at The Kings House Church air conditioning heat-pumps

Orion air conditioning & refrigeration ltd complete the installation of a new church air conditioning heat-pump heating system for the The Kings House Church Edmonton London UK. The Kings House Church is a excellent church based community centre serving the local community with many great services for those who are disadvantaged. This fantastic facility was once a industrial building which was brought together by the hard work of the The Kings House Church. Since the church was established the area has come to life and brought the community together and brought the area from a run dow waste land industrial estate to a thriving center.














What air conditioning heat-pump was installed in The Kings House Church:

10 x Chigo KFR32GW-X1C Wall Mounted (3.5kW 12000 Btu) heat pump Air Conditioning units which provided enough heat for the 1 area. These units have a amazing COP (3.65 initial input) which means that every 1000w of electrical energy going in produces 3650 watts of heat. For more information on heat-pump inverters please here.

The Kings House Church air conditioning Heat-pump efficiency and CO2 emissions:

This church air conditioning heat-pump system, because slightly undersized for the area took around half a hour to heat fully but once warm the outdoor heat-pump inverter units slowed down because the temperature had been reached therefore just pumping small amounts of heat in to maintain heat.


Heat-pump installation criteria:

This church air conditioning heat-pump installation was undertaken by lead engineer Gary Geza Toth with assistance from installation engineer Shane Fogarty, (both employed and trained by Orion). The The Kings House Church air conditioning heat-pump unit has a life span of around 15 to 25 years depending on their use. Installation time 1 days.

Heat pumps are bringing benefits to our Commercial buildings

With the excitement being created by rapidly growing application of heat pumps in the residential sector to replace conventional central heating boilers, it is often mistakenly thought that this is a recent innovation, this is not the case; heat pumps have been with us for over 50 years, indeed they are a dominant feature in the commercial buildings sector.


What we are seeing in the residential sector is the emergence of air or ground source-to-water heat pumps, which can satisfy space heating and domestic hot water requirements utilising conventional heat emitters - radiators, fan coil units or underfloor heating and hot water storage cylinders. Heat Pumps being part renewable, part electric technology, achieve far greater operating efficiencies than all electric or fossil fuel (gas or oil), combustion based boilers. Heat pumps have been recognised as being capable of helping us reach our carbon emission reduction targets not to mention greatly reducing our household heating bills.

In the commercial sector the pre-eminent heat pump is the air source air-to-air type, which can satisfy the space heating and cooling requirements, however, the sanitary hot water services are still mainly provided by secondary systems such as all electric or gas/oil fired boilers.

Pre 1990's most commercial buildings were cooled by air or water-cooled chillers circulating chilled water to wall mounted or ducted fan coil units and heated by conventional 'wet' central heating systems, either utilising the same fan coil units or radiators. In the mid 1980's, Daikin Industries developed an ingenious new heat pump technology called Variable Refrigerant Volume or VRV. This revolutionised the commercial air conditioning market because, for the first time there was a single system that could efficiently cool and heat commercial buildings, reducing dependence on energy guzzling boilers, which would now only be needed, in smaller capacities, for providing hot water.

What's more, VRV could offer simultaneous cooling and heating from the same system by re-distributing waste or rejected heat that would otherwise discharged to atmosphere! VRV offered many other benefits apart from superior energy efficiency, it was a modular concept so proved much more flexible in terms of the space it occupied and in programming the installation works.


Daikin Air Heat Pumps












Electrical loads were reduced and the speed with which VRV was able to respond to demand was far quicker than any chilled water/secondary heating system.
No surprise then that modular VRV (and later derivatives known as VRF) overtook central chiller systems in terms of popularity in the commercial sector.

However, certain commercial applications remain better suited to chiller systems, for example in large areas with a single temperature set-point or where response times are less critical, spaces with larger cooling loads or very high ceilings.

So has chiller development learned any lessons from the success of VRV? - Heat pump chillers have also been available for some years but at a premium that hindered their success. Such chillers could only operate in cooling or heating. In heating mode, there were limitations and in certain conditions a secondary heating source would still be required to satisfy the heating demand. This has been largely resolved with the more recent introduction of inverter technology (which VRV/VRF had adopted years earlier). Inverter technology enables the heat pump chiller's compressor/s to be boosted, in more extreme conditions, with a frequency increase that exactly follows the required thermal load, resulting in a wider operating range and reducing or eliminating the need for secondary heating.

Heat recovery, heat pump chillers manage to get a little closer to VRV/VRF capabilities because, the chillers offer cooling and heating as before - but - in cooling mode, heat absorbed from the conditioned space and from the compressors, instead of being rejected to atmosphere, is recovered and directed to a second heat exchanger. The recovered heat energy can then be used in areas calling for heating or passed to a thermal storage facility for hot water. In this way chillers can offer simultaneous heating and cooling, a common requirement in commercial buildings, at remarkably high efficiencies.

To manage the heating and cooling requirements of our commercial buildings it's not so much a question of why install heat pumps rather than other technology? More the fact that no other systems offer anything like equivalent energy efficiency and cost effectiveness. A fact that we in the industry trust will be acknowledged in the government's soon to be announced Renewable Heat Incentive.

Daikin air conditioning VRVQ system installed earlier this year to replace the existing older VRV system

Despite the challenging business conditions of the past two years, Space Air has remained committed to taking all reasonable steps to reduce the environmental impact of its commercial activities. The ISO 14001 Standard forms an important part of Space Air's objectives and so the Directors were delighted when the annual external audit approved certificate renewal with a highly complimentary report on the management of the system and environmental targets achieved to date, the auditor concluding with "This is one of the best environmental systems I have audited".


Perhaps the most impressive achievement was energy efficiency improvements recorded for the Daikin VRVQ air conditioning system installed earlier this year to replace the existing older VRV system.
Detailed metered records indicating minutes run and kW/hrs consumed by the new VRVQ system were compared with corresponding periods in previous years for the original system and showed a remarkable average 28.6% reduction in monthly kW/hr consumption!

A Space Air spokesman commented, "In addition to various other measures we have undertaken to reduce our environmental impact, the external auditor was particularly impressed by the very significant energy savings achieved by the VRVQ system. Although we need to look at a full year of recordings to get a fair comparison, the results so far are extremely encouraging, not only in terms of meeting our own objectives but also in reinforcing the efficiency benefits of VRVQ for the many customers considering replacing existing R22 or R407C VRV systems.

VRVQ has specifically been designed to enable older VRV systems to be replaced without the need to renew the existing pipework and in some cases, retain the existing fan coil units. VRVQ can therefore be installed relatively quickly, at considerably reduced cost and site disruption. The additional benefit is substantially lower running costs. We are already reaping the rewards and our customers can do the same."

May Fair Hotel has been playing host to the rich and famous uses Daikin Air Conditioning


How often have you woken up after a night in an inner city hotel, with that 'stuffy' feeling that you have had an uncomfortable sleep, deprived of fresh air? It's not always possible or practicable to open windows as traffic and other noises are too intrusive. Hotel air conditioning cannot always solve the problem either - it may be too noisy anyway, but most older hotels did not make suitable provision for fresh air supply to guest rooms and this is where the cause of an uncomfortable night's sleep commonly stems. One prestigious London hotel group turned to Space Airconditioning plc the Daikin Air Conditioning Distributor to address this problem.


Set in exclusive Mayfair in the heart of London, the May Fair Hotel has been playing host to the rich and famous since its historic opening by His Majesty King George V in 1927. Refurbishing and extending the May Fair was technically a highly demanding undertaking, not least for Space Airconditioning plc, the Guildford-based Daikin Distributor who were nominated to supply the new Daikin air conditioning for the entire project.

At the very earliest stages of the design, it was established that there would be full air conditioning - heating, cooling and ventilation to all bedrooms, as well as all occupied staff areas, all affiliated premises including shops, cafes and the adjacent Casino - and to all lavatories.

From the outset, extra low noise levels were considered a priority to ensure the ambiance expected in a 5 star hotel environment. Energy efficiency was also vital, not only from an operational viewpoint but also because electrical power supplies are at a premium in this part of the West End.

Finally the air conditioning installations were required to be fully compliant with current regulation. A ninth floor was added to the front elevation of the hotel to create a penthouse suite - the second largest and one of the most luxurious and expensive in London.

To facilitate the fresh air ventilation requirements Space Air designed bespoke composite air handling units, combining large (FXMQ) Daikin Ducted fan coil units and Daikin's VAM heat recovery ventilation modules.

These roof-mounted, fully weatherproofed units were prefabricated at Space Air's Guildford factory. The units ensured that the mix of fresh air and return air did not exceed 1ºC over set-point and the Daikin I-Manager controls would hold off operation of the VAM section until the room set-point was reached and maintain the 7-8°k room/ambient differential.

The ceiling height in the luxurious penthouse suite was lower than originally designed due to a planning restriction on the overall height of the hotel; this required a more innovative solution. Daikin Chassis type VRV floor mounted fan coil units were concealed in an partition wall, separating the large lounge and dining areas from other facilities and the interior designer selected purpose made linear grilles to create a feature. The fresh air for this area was supplied by 2 roof mounted Daikin VKMG units, again with weatherproofing manufactured and factory fitted by Space Air.

The design concept ensuring optimum environment control including adequate fresh air to the guest rooms has proved to be a great success and the model has now been extended to other hotels within the group.

Daikin Air Conditioning first VRVQ system delivered to the UK was installed in the Guildford offices of Space Airconditioning plc

The very first VRVQ system delivered to the UK was installed in the Guildford offices of SpaceAirconditioning plc, Daikin distributors since 1980.

Daikin's unique VRVQ system has been specifically developed to replace the outdoor and indoor units of similar systems, originally designed to operate with HCFC R22 (or HFC R407C) refrigerant - without the need to replace the interconnecting pipe work!

Traces of old refrigerant and oil mixing with new refrigerants and oils can cause equipment malfunction. Typically, when upgrading to new equipment, it is recommended that all existing interconnecting pipe work be replaced at the same time as the outdoor and indoor units. This can be extremely costly and cause great disruption within the building.

Daikin developed new technology to capture and contain any contamination in the old pipe work, thus enabling new VRV outdoor and indoor units to be connected to existing pipe work, greatly simplifying the installation process.


Space Air ensured that the first VRVQ system available to the UK was earmarked to replace a VRV 'K Series' R407C system. In this example, the existing refrigerant pipe work and ceiling cassette fan coil units were retained. Only the outdoor condensing units and internal branch selector boxes were replaced. Commenting on the installation, Space Air's technical after sales manager, Sibat Butt said. "It is quite usual for new Daikin equipment to be installed in our own premises, but normally it would be destined for our training suite or a showroom. On this occasion, we chose to replace the system serving our main offices as the energy efficiency advantages satisfied one of our planned ISO 14001 objectives." Mr Butt continued. "The project was completed over one weekend and the only impact on the office staff was the temporary imposition of a few ceiling tiles being removed on Friday afternoon. By Monday morning the new VRVQ based system had been fully commissioned and was up and running, many staff being none the wiser that any change had taken place."

Daikin VRVQ affords all the operating and energy efficiency benefits of a completely new installation, at a fraction of the cost. Installation can be phased for added convenience and increased capacity can be achieved where required.

VRVQ is a must to consider if you are planning to upgrade your older VRV/VRF Air Conditioning system.

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. and Hitachi Ltd today announced that they have been jointly selected b

Tokyo – Mitsubishi Corporation (MC: TSE/8058), Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. (MHI:TSE/7011) and Hitachi Ltd. (Hitachi: TSE/6501, NYSE/HIT) today announced that they have been jointly selected by The New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO) as participants in a Smart Community*System Demonstration Project (Project) in the area surrounding Malaga-city, Andalucia, in southern Spain.
Comprising a feasibility study to be conducted until July 29, 2011, and a subsequent demonstration phase that will carry through to the end of March, 2016, the Project was made possible by deregulations in Spain’s electric power market and advantages they present in implementing large amounts of renewable energy. It will be enhanced by leveraging state-of-the-art Japanese technologies in renewable energy, energy conservation, and smart communities. NEDO, MC, MHI and Hitachi hope the Project will give rise to other opportunities for Japanese companies to develop smart community businesses around the world.
The feasibility study will be conducted in two phases : the first to verify the amount of CO2 emissions produced by major public services in Malaga City; and the second to determine how best to reduce these.
The demonstration phase will focus on the transportation and electric power sectors. Infrastructure will be installed to facilitate greater use of electric vehicles (EVs), including EV chargers, an EV center, and the vehicles themselves. A smart grid will be set up to ensure electricity is supplied smoothly and safely to the vehicles, as well as integrated ICT platforms to connect the new infrastructure to the city’s existing power systems.
The details of scope of the demonstration operations will be defined by NEDO, upon consultation with specialists following the feasibility study phase.
This Project will be conducted under the Japan Spain Innovation Programme (JSIP**). MC will offer its global business expertise, while MHI will contribute its Technology Integration/Intelligent Transport System. Hitachi’s involvement will be through incorporation of their energy management and ICT systems. Cooperating on the Project will be Endesa S.A. and Telefonica, Spain’s biggest electric power and ICT companies respectively.
*
A smart community is one that comprehensively manages all types of energy, including electricity, heat and waste energy, and integrates transportation and other infrastructure. It incorporates an advanced type of smart grid, which efficiently controls electricity supply and demand by means of ICT. Countries around the world have been promoting smart community projects to help build sustainable societies that have a stable supply of energy, prevent global warming and stimulate economic growth.
Creating smart communities, requires an understanding of how societies function in terms of their energy supply and demand, and their potential use of renewable energy; but knowledge of different lifestyles is also very important. In this respect, smart community development goes beyond technology. Demonstration projects like this one in Spain should help to identify many of the social components that need to be considered.
**
The JSIP enables parallel funding for joint projects between Japan and Spain to develop technologies, with the provision that the Japanese companies involved are already approved for funding from NEDO, and the Spanish companies involved are approved for funding from CDTI (Centro para el Desarrollo Tccnological Industrial). NEDO and CDTI agreed to foster cooperative research, development and demonstration of smart grid-related technologies by signing a letter of intent in September 2010.

LG air conditioners has gone in for a brand new repositioning along with its foray into ATL communication with the launch of its first TVC

LG air conditioners has gone in for a brand new repositioning along with its foray into ATL communication with the launch of its first TVC. In-house agency of the brand, LG Ad has created the commercial that promotes the new brand proposition of 'life conditioning'.


The TVC revolves around a healthy and energetic family that breaks into an extempore game of football all because of the energized environment that the family lives in.

On the brief given to the agency, Lakshmikant Gupta, chief marketing officer, LG India said, “The brief was to create a significant emotional differentiator in a category which is centred around cooling and energy saving. The role of communication was to challenge the consumers’ paradigm of how ACs are viewed and bought by taking the proposition to a level beyond functional aspects of the product.”

Talking about the brand’s strategic journey, Nitin Makdani, business head, LG Ad said, “Since effective cooling is now more of category hygiene, the brand has to talk about an evolved benefit to have a wider appeal to people.” Rajib Sinha, general manager, client servicing added, “Hence the shift in strategy: From Air Conditioning to Life Conditioning.”

Elaborating on the development of the TVC, Dipansu Saha, creative head, LG Ad, said, “First and foremost, ‘revitalizing your living environment’ was an exciting platform to operate on. The creative process began with finding novel expressions for the same. The stakes were really high, more so because it was our first TVC. The playground idea found favour internally as well as with the client because it conveyed the desired message in a fresh and exciting way.”

An integrated campaign including print, outdoor and online would support the TVC. .

Gold Fin Anti Corrosion
• LG’s Outdoor Heat Exchanger is coated with a golden anti-corrosive epoxy treatment on the aluminum coil to minimized corrosion. This maintains heat transfer properties of the coil for an extended time where as non-Gold Fin coils progressively lose efficiency due to surface corrosion. Standard on every LG air conditioner, this assists in areas suffering from pollution or near the ocean where the unit may subjected to higher levels of salt.

Jet Cool
• Most LG air conditioners automatically distribute the air to eliminate hot and cold patches to keep the room at a more constant temperature.
