R22 replacement air conditioning for West Bromwich Bus Station
Air-conditioning systems based on R22 in offices and retail outlets at West Bromwich Bus Station have now all been replaced with up-to-date systems from Mitsubishi Electric. The old system dated from 2002 and was replaced according to a schedule worked out with Trios Compliance that could demonstrate an increase in energy efficiency.
Most rooms in the building complex have a lot of glazing, so air conditioning is a must.
The new system uses two City Multi Replace VRF air-conditioning units for the complex, which includes the office of Centro, which manages the bus station, and the travel shop. The City Multi system can simultaneously heat and cool different areas, so that energy loads can be more balanced across the building.
Trios Compliance is an accredited installer of Mitsubishi Electric equipment and was aware of the benefits of using City Multi Replace systems to upgrade R22 air conditioning.
Costas Ioannou, operations manager for Trios, explains, ‘The Replace system can really help because it can often simplify the renewable of air conditioning by allowing us to keep all the existing pipes and wiring. This means we can swap over the indoor and outdoor units without out having to install and then reinstall all the internal piping.’ Two Mr Slim units were installed to provide air conditioning to the mobility shop at street level.
