Wine bar makes classic case for energy efficiency

Mitsubishi Electric, heat recovery ventilation, Lossnay
From bakery to restaurant and wine bar, with the help of Mitsubishi Electric air conditioning to provide heating and cooling — the Classic Winebar in Limavady in Northern Ireland.

Energy-efficient heating, cooling and ventilation for a new restaurant and wine bar in Northern Ireland is provided by a Mitsubishi Electric heat-pump air-conditioning system and two Lossnay heat-recovery ventilation units. The Classic Winebar in Limavady is the result of transforming a bakery into a contemporary and chic new dining experience that includes a 5000 m2 dining space, wine bar, cocktail room and an open-air courtyard.

Air Cool Engineering of Limavady won the tender to install the systems. The company is a business solutions provide for Mitsubishi Electric, so it can offer a 5-year warranty. The initial design was provided by DMAC Engineering Design.

The restaurant has three ceiling cassettes and two ducted units in the main ground-floor dining and bar areas to deliver heating and cooling. They are served by five Mr Slim outdoor units against the rear wall on a flat roof at first-floor level.

These inverter-driven 10 kW outdoor units can achieve COPs of 3.41.
