CIBSE CPD-accredited Panasonic webinars on AC and heat pumps

Vincent Mahony, National Sales Manager, Panasonic Ireland

The team at Panasonic Ireland is currently presenting a series of CIBSE CPD-accredited interactive, online  courses to enhance skills during these unprecedented times. The CPD courses have been developed by Panasonic and support learning in a variety of heating and cooling disciplines and cover the following topics.

Principles of Air Conditioning – Overview of Splits/VRF Technology                        This is an introduction to the principles of air conditioning. The session details the fundamentals of air conditioning and goes on to describe the refrigeration cycle, heating and cooling load calculations, system components and unit selection.

An Introduction to Air to Water Technology                                                                    This CPD looks at using heat pumps to heat water and compares these systems to traditional gas boilers and further provides advice into system design and components. The session also goes through calculating heat losses in houses and sizing heat emitters.

Overview of Gas Heat Pumps (GHP) Technology                                                              The history and development of using gas as the power source for a VRF system. The CPD explains why this type of solution may be considered as an alternative to electric. The session compares the two options and details the design of the system.

Panasonic and Tech Provide Large VRF Solution, No Chills Attached!

These strengths have been further reinforced by an extensive advertising/marketing campaign and an ever-expanding, strategically-located, dealer network. Tech Refrigeration & Air Conditioning is a typical case in point. In just a short space of time Tech has won a number of very presitgious projects using Panasonic equipment.

One of the latest is a recently-completed large office project in East Point, Dublin, featuring Panasonic VRF technology. It comprises outdoor units with a total capacity of close on 200HP, 95 indoor units providing heating and cooling to the main office areas, 10 split systems serving dedicated room server-areas, and Panasonic’s 2-pipe VRF air handling kit delivering DX Primary Air cooling and heating.

“One of the main reasons we chose Panasonic for this project”, says Barry Hennessy, Tech Group Account Manager, “is because of its off-coil temperature control technology, as well as the excellent technical back-up and our familiarity with the product”.

Tech Contracts Manager Vincent Geraghty also added: “Panasonic’s off-coil temperature control enables the supply air termperature of the VRF indoor units to be controlled between 7 degrees C and 22 degrees C. This is set up during commissioning and vastly reduces the risk of cold air dumping and draughts. Moreover, the off-coil temperature can be individually set for each single indoor unit.”

“We’re extremely pleased with the progress we’ve made in such a short space of time”, says Vincent Mahony, Panasonic National Account Manager. “We have a well-defined strategy that includes new products such as RAC units with smart phone control, new Elite high COP split units, GHP units, air to water heat pumps, and dealer partnerships which help us deliver them to the marketplace. Despite the difficult trading conditions, we anticipate continued growth for the remainder of the year.”
