The energy efficiency of your air conditioning unit affects both the cost of your energy use, and your carbon footprint. More energy efficient units, though initially more expensive, can bring significant savings to your business, and improve the comfort of your offices and facilities.
An air conditioning unit’s energy efficiency is determined by;
The efficiency with which air is heated
The efficiency with which air is cooled
The degree to which heat is recycled in the system
The degree of control which can be exercised over the system
Variable Refrigerant Temperature
The most energy efficient air conditioning units continuously adjust the refrigerant temperature to the temperature and capacity that is actually needed. The result is optimal seasonal efficiency at all times. Leading models can improve seasonal efficiency by 28%.
Variable Refrigerant Volume
Variable Refrigerant Volume (VRV) was developed by Daikin who copyrighted the term. VRV systems control the amount and flow of the refrigerant incredibly precisely. The accuracy of the temperature controls is increased, and reductions are made in unnecessary efforts from the system. This is extremely efficient and a very energy-friendly method of climate control. This type of system is highly recommended for medium/large buildings of any use.
Air Conditioning Zoning
The cooling and heating requirements for different parts of the building in question are likely to vary, which is why air conditioning zoning is so beneficial for commercial purposes. Having different temperature zones throughout your building allows you to reduce costs incurred by unnecessarily heating unoccupied spaces.
Integrated climate control
The very best systems can be used to manage up to 50% of a building’s energy consumption, which represents a great potential cost saving. There are huge benefits to a system which can control water heating, space heating, space cooling and ventilation. It is possible to reduce running costs even further with energy management software provided with leading energy efficient models.
