﻿Fujitsu heat pumps show their capabilities in non-gas areas
With no gas being available for two new office developments in the Ribble Valley designed by architect Sunderland Peacock of Clitheroe, mechanical-engineering company Eco Intellect recommended Fujitsu air-source heat pumps to provide both heating and cooling. One of the buildings, Manor House in Ribchester, has been sympathetically converted into 13 self-contained office suites. The other project is the conversion of old farm buildings on the Duchy of Lancaster’s Root Hill Estate Yard at Dunsop Bridge into six self-contained office units.’
Another problem with the sites was the limited electrical supply, but the Fujitsu units have COPs of up to 5.4 to minimise electrical consumption.
Plasma units were selected for their efficiency and appearance. The architect required the outdoor unit to be spray painted black to match the external top water pipework and iron work on both jobs.
The indoor units incorporate Fujitsu’s Plasma Clean Technology, which removes dust and deodorises the air in the room. It also includes a polyphenol anti-bacterial element to absorb dust, spores and other harmful micro-organisms.
