The Heating and Cooling Systems that Make Your Commercial Space More Eco-Friendly
This blog post can help you to ensure the heating and cooling systems in your commercial space are eco-friendly, helping to Do Your Bit for the environment!
As we learn more about the environment, we discover how we desperately need to take more action to ensure we protect and conserve it wherever we can. Your commercial air conditioning and heating is just one step that can be taken to start caring for our environment and becoming more eco-friendly. Below, Jigsaw FM outlines some of your options to help reduce your carbon footprint (as well as saving you some cash).
A building management system with computerised controls allows you to control your boilers, air handling units, air conditioning, and lighting remotely, saving business’ thousands of pounds from reduced energy bills, as well as the environment. Accessed via a laptop, phone or tablet, the system can tell you the different temperatures around your building, seeing the peak times of use, along with when it energy is being wasted. From this, you can control each room independently from anywhere with an internet connection.
A well ventilated building eases the pressure on your heating and cooling systems. Whether it is achieved by natural means, mechanical means, or a mixture of both, a properly ventilated space can help to improve your energy consumption and carbon emissions, as well as bringing a sense of the outdoors into the building.
Space heating solutions are used for heating production areas, storerooms, workshops and other commercial properties, maintaining comfortable temperatures for personnel and to protect goods, without wasting energy. Warm air systems are a flexible and low-cost approach to heating small and medium sized commercial spaces. They are 92% fuel efficient, reducing energy consumption and costs, as well as having extremely low emission levels in line with the most stringent European standards.
For heating large spaces, radiant tube heating is effective for rapid warm-up and heat recovery. Working like the sun, the radiant heating warms up people and solid objects in its path. The efficiency of the tube systems can be improved further by zoning the heaters, enabling each one to be shut off individually if the area it focuses on is unoccupied.
