White paper targets best practice design
UK: Daikin has produced a white paper documenting legislative drivers and best practice design in the UK air conditioning industry.
Designed to provide installers and end-users with information highlighting how installation of correctly-sized, efficient air conditioning systems can reduce a building’s energy consumption and CO2 emissions, it covers existing legislation as well as more recent requirements such as the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS).
Accounting for nearly half of the energy consumption in non-residential buildings, climate control and ventilation systems are seen as an essential feature in the development of sustainable buildings throughout Europe.
As well as covering key legislations like the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive, the white paper also discusses the benefits of correctly sizing an air conditioning system during the design phase of a building.
“As climate control and ventilation systems now legally have to be regularly inspected, organisations should also ensure they are monitoring the systems energy use to minimise the number of actions arising from inspections,” said Daikin UK legislation specialist Graham Wright.
