A CASE STUDY FOR THE INSTALLATION OF A DC INVERTER WATER COOLED CONDENSER TO AIR CONDITION A RETAIL UNIT IN A PRIME SHOPPING MALL IN DUNDRUM
Australian Fun Fashion stationery retailer Smiggle was opening its first Irish store within a shopping centre in the heart of Dundrum town centre, close to Dublin. They needed their store to have air conditioning for the comfort of their customers and staff.
It was established by our Eire Installation Partners, I.C.E Cooling (www.ice.ie) that a conventional air conditioning system would not be appropriate due to planning constraints. An external condenser or holes to the outside were not possible. They, therefore, briefed us on their requirements.
The only solution available was our energy efficient DC inverter water cooled internal condenser air conditioning system that allows everything to be retained within the retail unit.
For this installation, a water cooled condenser was installed in the staff kitchen area and plumbed into the retail centre’s water loop system. This services an energy efficient, quiet, DC Inverter 4-way ceiling cassette unit mounted at a high level in a central position within the retail area.
I.C.E’s F-Gas install engineers supported by the Cool You technical team were able to discretely connect the refrigerant pipework between the condenser and the cooling unit, in the ceiling void ensuring everything was hidden. Although on a tight schedule, there was no disruption to the main fit-out of this landmark new store and the installation was completed in one day just before the opening event, attended by the founder of Smiggle, who had flown in from Australia.
This is one of a number of light commercial air conditioning projects that Cool You have undertaken recently within retail units in London shopping centres, but the first in Dublin and Eire. No planning permission was required to fit our air conditioning systems in these premises.
For this project we installed:
- One x 7Kw (24,000 Btu) water-cooled DC Inverter condenser
- Retail Area: 1 x 7Kw (24,000 Btu) 4 way ceiling cassette unit
