Ambthair has provided the following articles, which we hope will be particularly useful to building owners and designers.
Mike Hardy, managing director of Ambthair, has written this article, which explains the practical application of mass-produced air conditioning equipment to the exacting requirements for studio and auditorium environments.
Practical application of mixed flow and displacement ventilation systems, and the implications with reference to centralised plant.
The latest development in multi-split systems, and their application, and also the type of terminals available. The limitations of multi-split systems are also discussed, particularly with reference to length of pipe runs.
A guide to the avoidance of the use of vapour compression equipment and the practical application of low energy systems. The article also discusses the implication of the Kyoto Protocol.
A Practical Guide to the Reduction of Energy Costs and Carbon Emissions for Existing Heating and Hot Water Systems in Commercial and Domestic Buildings, Calculation of Payback Costs and Consideration of the Generation of On-site Electricity
A discussion on methods of replacing existing heating systems in domestic and commercial buildings with lower running cost and higher efficiency systems that are available. On site generation of electricity both in domestic and commercial buildings is also considered as well as the savings that may be made by improved insulation. Methods of calculation of financial payback and carbon payback times are shown for these systems as well as grants available.
Appendix: Units of measurement, a description of the units used in air conditioning
