  • Introduction to chilled beams and ceilings
    Chilled beams and ceilings are a type of convection HVAC system suitable for use in large buildings. They can provide both heating and cooling. Passive chilled beams rely solely on convection, while the active type , also...
  • Introduction to roof ventilation turrets
    Roof ventilation turrets use external wind and temperature to improve indoor air quality (IAQ) as part of a sustainable ventilation system. Unlike mechanical ventilation systems, natural ventilation uses a minimal amount of...
  • Introduction to underfloor heating and cooling
    Underfloor heating and cooling systems are an efficient means of heating: they provide a stable room temperature with minimal convection and associated draughts. They provide a pleasant warmth underfoot in domestic...
  • Introduction to heat exchangers
    Heat exchangers facilitate the transfer of heat from one medium to another, and in the building environment they are typically used in services such as heating, refrigeration / cooling and air conditioning. In process...
  • Introduction to pumping stations
    Packaged pumping stations are installed where the gravity drainage of surface water, wastewater or sewage is not possible. They 'lift' the liquid concerned to the requisite height, either into the drains or a septic tank.
