Case Study of Air conditioning Heat-pump installation at Education First Manchester (28/08/15)


Installation of Education First school air conditioning heat-pumps:

Orion air conditioning and refrigeration ltd complete the installation of a Fujitsu air conditioning heat-pump VRF multi heating system for the learning centre building in Stockport, Manchester. The building was being revamped due to its age and had 5 areas which needed heating and cooling including a large open plan area. The building had around 300 meters/squared of area that used a gas fired convector heating system which was now out of date.

What air conditioning heat-pumps were installed:

3 x  Fujitsu Air Conditioning AUYG12L Compact Cassette )3.5 kW / 12000 Btu) Heat Pump Inverter 240V~50hZ,

2 x Fujitsu Air Conditioning AUYG24L Compact Cassette (7.0 kW / 24000 Btu) Heat Pump Inverter 240V~50hZ. These units have a high COP (Average 3.65 initial input on) which means that every 1000w of electrical energy going in produces 3650 watts of heat. For more information on heat-pump inverters please here.

Background of the Education First air conditioning heat-pumps:

The building was being re-fitted by a main contractor who were quoted on various heating systems including split heat pump systems and replacement electric heaters which came in under budget in comparison to the price of the Fujitsu air conditioning Heat-Pump units but did not offer cooling which the cabin office would need in the summer. The Fujitsu air conditioning heat-pump system provided a great value way of heating a office building within a short space of time (30 minutes heat up time) and with little cost and reduces CO2 emissions. The Fujitsu  air conditioning systems offer large capacity heating with excellent COP. The project required individual heating and cooling units for each area and Fujitsu VRF systems offer a affordable way of heating and cooling without the need for a multitude of outdoor air conditioning systems.

School air conditioning VRF 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.
