Case Study of Air conditioning Heat-pump installation at The Friendly Society Bedford, Bedfordshire, UK (24/02/15)

Installation of office air conditioning heat-pump systems:

Orion air conditioning and refrigeration ltd complete the installation of a Daikin air conditioning heat-pump heating system for the office building of The Friendly Society Bedford, Bedfordshire. The office building had around 200 meters/squared of area that used electric convector heating systems which were basic and extremely expensive to run. In the summer the building would get extremely hot due to the sun shining through the windows constantly.

What air conditioning heat-pumps were installed in the offices and server room:

3 x  Daikin Air Conditioning FCQG50F Cassette (5 kW / 18000 Btu) Inverter Heat Pump. These units have a high COP (Average 3.47 initial input on) which means that every 1000w of electrical energy going in produces 3470 watts of heat. For more information on heat-pump inverters please here.

Background of The Friendly Society office air conditioning heat-pumps:

The Friendly Society were quoted on various air conditioning systems including split heat pump systems and replacement electric heaters which came in under budget, in comparison to the price of the Daikin air conditioning Heat-Pump units but did not offer cooling which the office would need in the summer months. The Daikin air conditioning heat-pump system provided a great value way of heating a office building within a short space of time (30 mins heat up time) and with little cost and reduces CO2 emissions. The Daikin  air conditioning systems offer large capacity heating with excellent COP. This project required individual heating and cooling for each area and split Daikin air conditioning systems offer a affordable way of heating and cooling without the need for centralized air conditioning system.

Office air conditioning and Heat-pump efficiency and CO2 emissions:

This office air conditioning heat-pump system took around half an hour to heat fully but once warm the outdoor heat-pump ramped down because the temperature  had been reached therefore just pumping small amounts of heat in to maintain heat. Typical running cost for the year / system 484.00p.
