LIFE SCIENCES CENTRE HEAT RECOVERY CHILLER
pURPOSE OF PROJECT
The reason for the project is to recover heat from the building, and inject it back into the central heating system. Recovering heat from various areas of the building, allows for the overall district energy required to be lowered -- in essence to save energy.
wHAT WAS DONE
Supply and install of a new four-pipe simultaneous-heating-cooling unit. This unit also acts as the first stage of cooling for the building, and thus, energy metering is done on both the heating and cooling side of the building. The cooling system in the building was also modified, and this new chiller acts as a lead.
Heat and energy recovery, and overall increase in chiller efficiency.
