We are asked to help with some options on repairing the existing air handling (air conditioning) system at Kembrey Park in Swindon for one of our existing clients. The main unit in the building had failed, and it serviced 10 areas of the building with cool air, the main issue was that the unit was quite old, and was not readily available in the UK.
The outer casing of the unit was a steel box, and the outdoor compressors and equipment were also faulty, so we had to import a new unit from America and modify it to fit all of the existing trunking systems that were in the building. The cost to completely replace all of the ductwork with a new VRV type system or single splits would have been much more expensive as we would still have had the cost to strip out all the old equipment.

Air conditioning selection of units.
Sizing of the unit to the area is very important, if too large a unit is specified then the unit will not be working as hard as it is designed to, and will actually be very inefficient. It is therefore important to get the kilowatt output correct for the space. The new units out now are also A+ energy rated, so super efficient and as you can see from the photographs quite discrete. The main difficulty with this project is that we had to use our engineering skills to get it to work.
