Air Conditioner Types

Heat Pump

This type of system provide Heating or Cooling to all indoor unit(s) without the function to heat 1 indoor unit whist cooling another indoor unit, all indoor unit(s) can be controlled by a thermostat to control each rooms temperature.

Heat Recovery

This System has the ability to provide Heating or Cooling to all indoor units independently allowing any combination of indoor units to heat or cool, all indoor unit can be controlled by a thermostat to control each rooms temperature.

Cooling only / Server Computer Rooms

These systems only cool this type of system is becomming less common as a split type system, with portable or mono-block systems still widely available.  Rooms that require cooling only such as server or computer rooms use high wall mount or ceiling cassette units capable of maintaining temperatures around 21-22°C with a tolerance of 1-2°C that also control humidity.  Custom built server room installations such as telephone exchanges and data centre use up-flow or down-flow air handling units which is often custom made, contact us with your requirement. Server and data equipment produce heat, hardware failure is a direct consequence of that heat, if you have a hot spot contact us about the AireTile™ this is a data centre, air flow management system developed to remove hotspots caused by high density servers and racks and improve the efficiency of aisle containment systems by simply adding this floor tile with integrated dynamic fan.

Heating only

Systems that only heat, these system are common in hotels and new build single and multi dwelling properties where no cooling is required. Mitsubishi Electric Ecodan is a commercial and residential renewable heat pump technology that delivers heating and hot water, a low carbon energy efficient alternative to kerosene oil heaters or off grid gas heating. Most of out installation can be set to heating only to comply with BREEAM. Is a process in which the air is mixed in order to eliminate stratified layer of temperature.

Destratification

Is a process in which the air is mixed in order to eliminate stratified layer of temperature, destratification fans are simple but highly effective solution that work with warm air system to return the warm air from the roof space back to occupied space.
