Business owners and facilities managers want to improve their employee’s environment whilst managing the running costs and their carbon footprint. These factors are important when selecting HVAC equipment for premises, particularly large production and warehouse spaces.

What are the five main challenges to be considered?

1. Outside air infiltration

Minimising or accounting for the frequent use of loading doors within the HVAC design process, and managing employee behaviour.

2. Distribution of an even temperature

Large spaces usually have high ceilings, ensuring the right level of heat or cooling outputs for a space is only one part of the equation. Making sure that the temperature is consistent across the space or only allocated to specific zones is integral to a successful HVAC system.

3. Impact of process or other mechanical equipment on space temperature

Understanding what heat generating equipment is present within the space is imperative when sizing HVAC systems. Removal or the reuse of this energy can have a huge impact on the temperature within the space and your carbon footprint, utilising waste heat to “free heat” other areas within a premises.

4. Adaptability for potential future changes to the use of the space

With the ever-changing business climate the use of a space can flex and change multiple times. This can be a challenge for many facility managers.

5. Running cost control

Energy costs are always high on the agenda, therefore controllability and monitoring of energy use are vital to business profitability.
