Six AirMaster AM500 units have been specified by consulting engineers SpencerMayes as part of a wider refurbishment of areas of the college. Cheltenham College is one of the UK’s leading co-educational independent schools for both day and boarding. The College has a strong commitment to minimising its environmental impact so a key criterion for the new ventilation was that it should be energy-efficient. Each AirMaster unit will provide Demand Controlled Ventilation (DCV), using carbon dioxide levels as a metric for IAQ. CO2 sensors will be used in each space to monitor air quality, so that the ventilation rate can be modified accordingly using AirMaster’s inverter controlled EC fans. In this way, IAQ levels are maintained with minimum energy consumption.
Halving energy costs by marrying CHPs to Heat Pumps
Despite the war in Ukraine, gas is becoming greener, and properties can even halve their gas consumption by connecting a micro-CHP plant and heat pump from EC POWER, which has been on the market for 30 years.
