Case study | University of Northampton
We completed a project with the University of Northampton to reduce energy usage.
The solution was a programme to replace air conditioning systems over 7 years old with a bespoke, low cost, energy efficient evaporative cooling system.
The installation took just three weeks and early Client estimates, based upon metered data, suggests weekly reductions in energy usage by up to 3500kWh per week and projected annual savings of £18,000 in running costs.
Further to this the Client anticipates full payback in around 3 years time. Evaporative Cooling has a wide range of applications including improving working conditions.
Evaporative cooling is a natural way of producing refreshing cool air.
Evaporative coolers provide cooling by means of the evaporation process.
Warm fresh air is drawn from the atmosphere, through a water saturated filter by a centrifugal fan. As the fresh air is continually drawn from outside, it is then filtered and washed, resulting in cooler air circulating in the area required. Simple air distribution systems deliver cool, fresh air to provide coverage for an entire building or ‘spot’ coverage.
At approx 10% of the running costs of standard refrigerated air conditioning and often lower installation costs, evaporative cooling is a low cost cooling system.
As with all Spheretech installations, we arrange an initial free, no obligation survey to assess the customer’s requirements and to provide a forum to answer any questions. Should you require any further information on Spheretech Ltd visit spheretech.co.uk or email [email protected].
