New Video on HVAC optimization – Flow Informs

Posted by Armstrong Fluid Technology on Nov 22, 2023 11:07:16 AM


Our most recent video is an explanation of how flow levels inform HVAC optimization.


Many of today’s buildings rely on HVAC systems that were oversized on installation to address uncertainty in cooling and heating loads. Unfortunately, many building occupants still experience discomfort, even with the extra capacity in HVAC systems. To make matters worse, most HVAC systems operate inefficiently and this poor performance goes unnoticed by building owners and operators. Without automated maintenance alerts, and regular recommissioning, most buildings will experience a drift in HVAC performance efficiency of 10-30% in just 2 years.

The retrofit revolution

The retrofit of heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) equipment could be a potential shortcut along the road to net-zero, says KEVIN LAIDLER, Sales Director, Middle East and Africa of Armstrong Fluid Technology.


Armstrong’s Pump Manager helps address performance issues.

To many of us, the construction boom that transformed a barren desert into a glittering metropolis may seem like only yesterday, but those once newly-constructed buildings are now more than 15 years old. Since then, we’ve seen the advent of Google, the rise of Facebook, and the introduction of driverless cars. With that in mind, how can we possibly believe that heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems installed before the launch of the first iPhone are still adequate?

The Heart of Hospital Comfort - Improving HVAC system resilience by understanding flow

Posted by Steven Lane on Jan 20, 2021 4:11:20 AM

As Seen On: November 2020

The healthcare industry wrestles with the long-running problem of patient non-adherence. The consequences are waste of medication, disease progression, reduced functional abilities, lower quality of life and increased use of medical resources, such as nursing homes, hospital visits and admissions.

The built environment grapples with its own version of non-adherence. Buildings of all types and sizes, including healthcare facilities, are designed, constructed and commissioned with mechanical systems to regulate the indoor environment, in particular temperature and humidity. The challenge facility managers face is HVAC systems experience what is referred to as ‘performance drift.’

SECR? Don't forget to ask the Pump

Posted by Andrew Boothroyd on Jun 25, 2019 8:57:44 AM

With the introduction of the UK Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting (SECR) policy, the number of companies needing to measure and provide usage data to the UK government will almost treble. Under the earlier Carbon Reduction Commitment around 4,000 businesses had to report their energy and emissions data, but the change in criteria will mean that the requirement will now affect around 11,900 companies. The decision aligns the government’s goals with the G20 Financial Stability Board's Taskforce on Climate-related financial disclosures.

The Armstrong Design Envelope product range includes embedded software for monitoring and reporting performance after installation which collects and reports data more accurately than a flow meter. So investing in replacement pumps (and harnessing their connectivity and in-built performance management technology) can provide the increased level of environmental reporting data necessary to meet the demands of the SECR policy, whilst making immediate improvements in energy efficiency.
