Heating, hot water and cooling systems account for around 60% of all energy consumption, which means upgrading outdated and poorly maintained HVAC systems has a huge role to play in tackling emissions, optimising efficiency and reducing operating costs. Ability offer a full fan coil refurbishment service to allow for the considerable reduction in carbon emissions from existing buildings and improved fan coil performance.
Our consultative approach to modern HVAC systems has worked so well that contractors working on major refurbishment programmes have seen running costs slashed by up to 50-80%. When coupled with the system’s extended life expectancy, the overall payback period for the investment is quicker than ever before.
How it works
Ability’s experienced service team will attend site to discuss the specific requirements of the project and will investigate the system to advise on options. An FOC report will be submitted detailing options, recommendations and provisional timescales. Once the customer’s preference is understood, a more thorough survey is undertaken with confirmed pricing and implementation schedules agreed. With flexibility being important, meeting a customer’s requirement becomes a simple process.
The benefits of refurbishing fan coils:
Putting it into practice
We have always seen the benefit of introducing modern technology and adapting systems to offer customers the opportunity to make the most of the controllability EC fans afford. It was this that led to one of our customers replacing an AC system with EC fans within two years of commissioning. The incredibly short payback period on this project led us to focus on what could be done to enhance an existing unit rather than simply removing it.
With the biggest potential for energy saving coming from EC fans and the advances in control capabilities, Ability began working with customers on alternatives to full product replacement. This flexible approach to a specific customer requirement saw a challenging installation being viewed in a completely new way. Our experienced service team conducted a full survey on an antiquated system containing FCU’s from another manufacturer. As the chassis and coil were still sound the team recommended looking into replacing the fan and control system, rather than replacing the entire product.
