Air conditioning news, innovations and our latest projects
Air conditioning news and the latest innovation and developments in air conditioning, heating and ventilation always interest us here at Chillaire. We are also proud to share the solutions we have designed and installed for our customers.
Growing demand for industrial, commercial and domestic HVAC installations has created new career opportunities for air conditioning and gas heating engineers at the specialist HVAC design, installation and maintenance company, Chillaire, based in Nuneaton. These interesting and rewarding roles are for experienced HVAC engineers but are also expected to attract interest from candidates working in […]
Depending on construction and layout, there are several things to think about if you want your factory heating to be effective and efficient. If your specifications aren’t properly prepared the result can be poor heat distribution throughout the space, high costs and an adverse carbon footprint. Factory heating options Radiant and warm air and heating […]
Air conditioning and HVAC systems have a number of jobs. Heating systems increase the indoor temperature and compensate for heat losses. On the other hand, many spaces gain heat from the sun, people and equipment. This makes them uncomfortable, so cooling is also needed. Ventilation systems supply air to an inside space and remove polluted […]
In December 2018 the Medium Combustion Plant Directive (MCPD) came into effect, which will still apply in the UK when we leave the EU. The MCPD sets out emission limit values (ELVs) of nitrogen oxides (NOx), sulphur dioxide (S02) and dust produced by an individual combustion plant like a boiler with a thermal input equal […]
The use of heat interface units (HIUs) and centralised plant is becoming popular for blocks of flats, apartments, or even larger schemes. As energy efficiency standards become more stringent, effective heating and cooling in modern properties will become a priority. Industry experts say HIUs are going to be an important part of the UK’s low […]
Air conditioning systems connected to the IoT (Internet of Things) using Wi-Fi can warn your facilities manager before something goes wrong. Preventative diagnostics allow IoT-enabled devices, including your air conditioning system, to contact a repair team, building owner or manager. Damage can even be reduced with automated actions, such as turning off the power to a […]
Daikin has introduced a new Rebel Applied rooftop HVAC system which meets the demanding in-airflow design standards set by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE). Daikin’s Rebel Applied team introduced its first high-IEER (Integrated Energy Efficiency Ratio) units to the HVAC rooftop market in 2012. The new range introduces next-generation […]
The offices of a long-standing Chillaire Limited customer in Nottingham recently received energy-efficient replacement air conditioning for their Daikin system, which originally used R22 refrigerant. The Electric Avenue offices of data experts, Experian, are one of six they have in Nottinghamshire. The life of the air conditioning system had been extended by converting it from R22 […]
One of our longest-standing and valued customers in Leamington Spa recently needed a replacement Hitachi air conditioning system. For over 50 years the Smallpeice Trust has been encouraging young people with a passion for engineering to make their ideas a reality. For engineers like ourselves, we believe this […]
Close control precision air conditioning is critical in environments where optimum temperatures must be maintained at all times. While Gartner recently said that the traditional data centre is dead thanks to software and as a service (SaaS) in the Cloud, there are still a lot of IT-intensive environments where precision temperature control is vital. Modern businesses […]
Daikin UK and the refrigerant management company A-Gas will be working together to recover and re-use reclaimed refrigerant. Announced at Daikin UK’s D1 Partner event in London last week, their Commission with Confidence service guarantees that the R410A refrigerant trim charge for its variable refrigerant volume (VRV) systems will now use reclaimed refrigerant. Daikin’s D1 and […]
A Mitsubishi Heavy Industry heat pump ceiling air conditioning system was the ideal solution for our recent installation at the Coventry-based Mazda and Suzuki showroom. The Green 4 Motor Company dealership provides new and used cars sales and servicing. They are recognised for their in-depth product knowledge and willingness to help whenever they can. That’s why we have […]
At Chillaire we often recommend Daikin heat pump air conditioning units. Daikin is a leading manufacturer of high quality, reliable heat pumps and air conditioning products. Using the latest technology, they offer excellent environmental temperature control and efficiency. Through research and development, Daikin air conditioning systems have been developed for a wide range of applications. […]
Green buildings are not only environmentally friendly; there’s growing evidence that they can also improve overall business performance. We all understand that modern heating, ventilation and cooling systems are efficient and can save us money. However, green buildings can reduce absenteeism and improve morale. Some forward-looking employers are also using their high-quality working environment as another […]
Mixed-mode or hybrid ventilation is a popular solution for schools. It introduces air both naturally and mechanically for better airflow. After some interesting design challenges, the mechanical ventilation experts, Nuaire, have now launched their new XBOXER Hybrid range. They provide a natural system with fans for mixing warm air when it’s cold and for higher […]
Purchase price is just one consideration when choosing your air-conditioning system. Reliability and running costs aren’t simply a function of the brand you choose, there are other factors too. We asked a selection of consultants to give their views on how to extend the life of air-conditioning systems. Product design and quality The best air […]
Background – Hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) refrigerants were part of the solution when chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), were phased out. CFCs had been used since the 1930s for air-conditioning, refrigeration, and many other applications. However, their impact on the world’s ozone layer was recognised in the 1970s. In 1990, the Montreal Protocol was strengthened, and CFCs were effectively banned […]
Chillaire Limited supplied and installed five Samsung wall heat pump air conditioning systems into a village hall in Dunchurch to provide cooling in summer and heating in winter. The indoor units were interlinked to operate off a single controller with each wall fan coil unit operating off its own internal temperature sensor to provide a more balanced control throughout the hall.
Chillaire surveyed, designed and installed a Denco close control precision air conditioning system into a lab in Leamington Spa to provide close control temperature and humidity control of 20 Deg C plus or minus 1 Deg C and 50% relative humidity (RH) control plus or minus 10%.
Chillaire Limited carried out the heat loss assessment and selected a Powrmatic NVX heater. Completing the entire installation from hanging the heater off the roof beams, installing the mains gas pipe, installing the mains electrical power supply, installing the Powrmatic MV200 control unit and installing the flue complete with dektite seal.
