Heating and Ventilation – HVAC
How is your company’s heating and ventilation provision? Do you have a modern, regularly maintained HVAC system in place or are you still limping on with an archaic system that is costing you an arm and a leg in energy usage while delivering a sub-optimal experience?
Why a new HVAC System Makes Sense
Installing a new heating and ventilation system is a smart move on many different levels.
Modern HVAC systems are up to 4.5 times more energy efficient than their predecessors and can shave as much as 80 per cent off an average energy bill. When weighing up the cost of replacing your current system, be sure to add energy savings into your calculations as you may be surprised at how quickly you would recoup that initial capital outlay.
The government are also increasingly toughening up on energy efficiency in buildings. For example, the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) requires all landlords, facility managers and property owners operating a system of 12kW or more to submit to annual TM44 inspections (something K2 can carry out). Even if your system is currently certified as compliant with EPBD, will it be in five year’s time? What happens if the efficiency targets are tightened up?
Then there is Health and Safety and environmental legislation to think about. Are you providing a safe working environment for your workforce and clients? Can you guarantee that there are no hidden refrigerant leaks within your premises? If you can’t confidently answer ‘yes’ to these questions, you should seriously consider upgrading your system.
A new system will not only be more energy efficient and kinder to the environment, it will also be quieter, more aesthetically pleasing and ‘smarter’, with integrated computer software for automation and user control. Systems vary in what features they offer but there are plenty of novel features to enjoy.
