Legislation affecting businesses

Significant legislation such as F-Gas and Part L & Part F of the Building Regulations are placing demands on commercial organisations to monitor and control their energy use as never before.



For Offices

Legislation affecting homeowners

The rising cost of fuel and the need to reduce emissions now means we are at a significant tipping point in the way we heat our homes. Carbon intensive forms of heating, such as gas and oil are no longer viable. At the same time, the Government has recommended air source heat pumps as the most sustainable form of heating for Irish homes.

Renewable heat pumps are suitable for almost any home and can lower running costs and reduce emissions. Grants are available through the SEAI.

Residential Homes

Legislation affecting installers

Changes to refrigerants under the F-Gas Regulations is driving change in air conditioning and at the same time there is pressure on the energy rating of traditional methods of heating and cooling buildings such as Chillers. Installers also need to be able to offer the most energy efficient products available.

Equipment installers need a manufacturer that is ahead of the curve and developing products that meet both current and future legislation now.

Diagnostics v2


F-Gas and the phase down of HFCs 

F-Gas Regulations aim to reduce emissions of fluorinated greenhouse gases and will affect the HVAC industry for years to come.

Hybrid VRF air conditioning

Hybrid Variable Refrigerant Flow systems can combine the heat recovery benefits of VRF together with the functional benefits of a four-pipe fan coil system, while only using two pipes.

Chiller technologies

Water cooled chillers and air cooled chillers are refrigeration systems used to cool fluids in both commercial buildings and industrial facilities.

The impact of control strategies on building energy performance

Controls offer a highly effective solution to the challenge of energy efficiency. They can provide effective automation and control of heating, ventilation, cooling, hot water and lighting systems that lead to better overall building efficiency.
