Video shows consultant view on hybrid air conditioning

A video showing the views of both the consultant and the installer to a new air conditioning system that does away with the need for leak detection has just been put online.

The short video focuses on the installation of a Hybrid VRF (variable refrigerant flow) system into the Cardiff office of leading-edge consultants, Hoare Lea and interviews Wynne Harris, Managing Partner of Hoare Lea Cardiff as well as Tony Williams, Director of Cool Solution Ltd, who were responsible for installing the system.




Hybrid VRF uses water throughout the occupied spaces yet still offers full two-pipe heat recovery and the advanced control and flexibility that the City Multi range is renowned for.

“We were in discussion with Mitsubishi Electric and they introduced us to the possibility of thinking about an HVRF system”, explains Wynne Harris. “It’s also no easy feat to put a system into a consulting engineer’s office as we have quite an inquisitive bunch of engineers.”

Hoare Lea will now be monitoring how the system operates in a live office working environment and feeding that back to Mitsubishi Electric.

Tony Williams of Cool Solution was also enthusiastic about what is the first installation of this equipment in Wales, saying: “It's the innovative side to the product. I think it's got great potential to really take on the market certainly the four pipe systems”.
