Andrew Harrop on how new approaches to the design of heating systems are making it easier for schools save energy and money

Replacing ageing school boiler plant can be daunting. Heating systems can only feasibly be replaced when the site does not require heating or a continuous water supply. In addition, projects often have to be squeezed into the summer vacation to avoid traffic, disruption and the presence of contractors during term-time. This small window of opportunity can create inconvenience and cost. As summer is the busiest time for the building industry it can be difficult to guarantee availability of contractors for the designated weeks. Many independent schools have additional challenges relating to the architectural heritage of their school buildings. Access can be problematic and something as basic as the size of doorways can present problems when removing the old boiler or positioning its replacement.

At Datacenter Dynamics Converged Armstrong Fluid Technology will be featuring its portfolio of ultra-efficient products and systems for datacentre cooling and air conditioning. All solutions harness the benefits of Hartman LOOPTM digital relational control technology which is capable of treating the entire system ‘holistically’, rather than as individual sub-systems. This provides a number of environmental benefits. Controlled ‘holistically’, rather than as three independent control loops, chilled water system components are operated along their Natural Curve or “sweet points” for optimal energy consumption.
