Ability Matrix fan-coil units deliver energy-efficient air conditioning

Ability Projects, fan coil unit, Matrix
Energy-efficient air conditioning for this refurbishment project in London’s West End is provided by fan-coil units with the capability of balancing air flow for each duct through fan speed alone.

Over 30 of Ability Projects’ EC-DC Matrix 1 fan-coil units have been installed as part of the high-grade refurbishment of a mixed office and retail complex in central London. The development at 1 to 3 Mortimer Street, W1, is fully let. Matrix fan-coil units provide infinitely variable speed control of the entire fan-coil unit and each fan in it, enabling each air duct to be balanced for air volume through fan speed alone — avoiding the use of noisy volume-control dampers and their costly installation.

The 4-pipe Matrix units are concealed in the ceiling (horizontal units) and also installed vertically at low level. They are supplied with chilled water and LPHW from new chiller and boiler plant installed by JSMS of Erith in Kent.

Matrix units are designed to deliver air according to room occupancy, thermal demand or a combination of both. If a room is empty, the FCU can operate in set-back mode, increasing its speed if someone enters the room.
