Completion of Office Air Conditioning Installation In kimbolton



Orion air conditioning has completed the installation of a office air conditioning system for Hofmann Megalan the garage lifting, balancing and related heavy industrial equipment. Hofmann Megaplan have opened a new showroom in Kimbolton , Cambridgeshire, UK to showcase there range of equipment. Orion air conditioning we pleased to install Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Air Conditioning wall units into the office of the new building.

What air conditioning units were installed at Hofman Megaplan:

The office required one  new design Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Air Conditioning SRK50ZJ-S Wall Mounted (5.3 kW 18000 Btu) Inverter Heat Pumps wall mounted air conditioning system. MHI air conditioning can be found worldwide and have a amazing COP (3.62 x initial electrical input) which means that every 1000w of electrical energy going in produces 3620 watts of cooling / heating.

Air conditioning efficiency, costing and CO2 emissions:

When considering air conditioning and heating it is worth considering  quality air conditioning manufacturers such as Fujitsu for trouble free heating and cooling. Cheaper air conditioning units such as DIY / self install air conditioning equipment do the job but lack control features that commercial air conditioning systems have as standard. For example a 24Hr/7day timer so when your office isn't occupied the air conditioning is not running costing you money. A 7 day timer is a worthwhile consideration with the price of electricity if you are heating or cooling a unoccupied area for 1 hour a day 5 days a week the cost will soon mount up. Generally if a 2.5 kW air conditioning heat pump was to be run at full power continuously for 10 hours/day it will cost in the region of UKŁ0.19/hour at current UK electricity costs (autumn 2013). Usually air conditioning will switch off once it has reached temperature and with new high COP inverter models this cost is almost halved to 0.095p/hour.

More commercially orientated air conditioning systems have superior mode settings for heat, cool, fan, dehumidify and auto which is often required in a office environments where the occupants may want the temperature set at different levels for separate areas. Commercial air conditioning systems are compatible for open plan office environments where one controller is required to control the area instead of a multiple of controllers in the hand of many users. Cheap systems lack automatic features which lets you set the temperature and the unit will change between heating and cooling automatically. This gets rid of the issue of a summer and winter switch-over which is a important requirement for large office air conditioning system. Most commercial office air conditioning systems have 3 years warranty and because they have a higher efficiency they usually have a ECA listing (air conditioning heat pumps only) which means the end user can claim against capital gains (businesses only).

Inverter air conditioning units are recommended for daily usage:

The latest air conditioning inverter heat pump system's are some of the most efficient ways to heat a office area. It is also great for energy saving and CO2 footprint reduction where gas or oil is used. With electricity, gas and oil prices rising it is worth taking into account the C.O.P of a air conditioning heat pump units (efficiency), the higher it is the more efficient it is. If a unit has a C.O.P of 3.8, then this mean that it will create 3.8kW heat output from a electricity input of only 1kW.

ECA Tax allowance for commercial installations:

If you are a commercial user you will get 100% tax allowance via ECA program. This is limited to professional commercial systems and is well worth taking up as you will be able to write off the equipment & installation cost against tax owed. Take a look at the ECA web site for more information on the air conditioning ECA program.

Heat recovery fresh air system:

The commercially orientated Mitsubishi Electric Lossnay fresh air system can be utilised virtually anywhere in a office environment to extract stale air and then recover the heating or cooling energy to either warm or cool incoming fresh air. New "Hyper Lossnay Core". At only 25um (approx 1/5 the thickness of LGH-RX3) the Lossnay core uses the thinnest paper in the world to achieve high enthalpy exchange efficiency. If you are looking for fresh air exchange the Mitsubishi Lossnay is well worth looking at and has been tried and tested for many years in home and commercial.
