QHotels Quietly Rolls Out Powrmatic Condenser-Less Air Conditioning
QHotels Group has chosen to install Powrmatic's Vision 2.3 condenser-less heat pump air conditioning across its hotels in a three-year refit, reports RAC online – the refrigeration and air conditioning magazine.
The refit has begun with the group's Nottingham Belfry Hotel, a modern, 120 room conference hotel.
A requirement of the air conditioning system was that it should complement the décor, both internally and externally.
Qhotels chose the Powrmatic air conditioning system for its simplicity and low-impact design (there are no outdoor units to disrupt the building facades), as well as the speed at which it can be installed.
According to the manufacturer, installation was achieved with no downtime of the rooms. In addition, the units offer low noise levels ensuring non-intrusive operation, the firm added. The product claims ErP-compliant energy efficiency in both heating and cooling modes: an energy efficiency ratio (EER) of 2.71 in cooling mode and a coefficient of performance (COP) of 3.1 in heating mode.
Rob Reeves, M&E consultant to QHotels, said: "The Vision 2.3 is the perfect solution for our hotels. We installed 45 units in under two weeks whilst still having the rooms occupied; they look great, simple to install and extremely quiet."
The group is undertaking a three-year refit programme that will see Powrmatic units rolled out across other QHotels. A Vision 2.3 LTHW low-temperature hot water model will replace existing wet heating systems.
The beauty of the Powrmatic air-conditioning system lies within its unobtrusive design, absence of an outdoor unit and easy installation; all qualities that our Unico range of systems have become renowned ambassadors of.
