Having trusted air cool engineering NI  with the previous fit out of their luxury DS brand showroom, JC Halliday & Sons were happy to appoint the established and reputable HVAC contractor, to provide an indoor climate control package for their recently refurbished Citreön and Vauxhall car dealership in Campsie, Derry/Londonderry.

The Challenge

With its open plan showroom and large floor-to-ceiling windows, JC Halliday & Sons struggled to control the fluctuating indoor temperatures throughout their building. They required an energy efficient, versatile and highly responsive system which could deliver heating, cooling and ventilation to achieve and maintain comfortable indoor conditions all year round.

The Solution

air cool engineering NI installed Mitsubishi Electric ceiling cassette systems to provide heating and cooling to the space. The units are equipped with sensors to constantly monitor and maintain optimum temperatures of the surrounding air.

The showroom is also fitted with Mitsubishi Electric Lossnay heat recovery ventilation units. These Lossnay units supply fresh air, remove stale air and provide a heat recovery function by harvesting the energy from the extracted air to heat the incoming fresh air.

As air cool engineering NI  proudly holds Mitsubishi Electric Diamond Quality Partner status, JC Halliday & Sons can avail of the 10 year warranty on the Mitsubishi Electric equipment installed in their refurbished showroom.

Andrew Miller, Dealer Principal for JC Halliday & Sons said: ‘Our showroom refurbishment was an opportune time for the business to explore alternative and more sustainable methods to heat and cool our property. While staff and customer comfort has always been paramount, the pandemic also highlighted the need to improve the overall air quality within the building too. air cool engineering NI demonstrated how modern air conditioning technologies operating in conjunction with a mechanical ventilation system, would be the ideal controllable heating, cooling and ventilation solution our business needed. We are confident too, that by switching to all-electric, low carbon, energy efficient systems, our property is future proofed for many years to come.’

Martin Mullan, Managing Director for air cool engineering NI Ltd added: ‘JC Halliday & Sons needed a system which could effortlessly deliver controllable comfort and help promote energy efficiency. Compared to traditional space heating methods, using low carbon air-to-air heat pump technology alongside mechanical ventilation with heat recovery, ensures lower running costs and more efficient operation for the business. Both systems are highly responsive to the changing weather conditions outside and the fluctuating temperatures inside. When working in tandem, the showroom will be a comfortable, temperature-controlled and well ventilated environment for their staff and customers. We’re delighted JC Halliday and Sons chose locally for their HVAC needs.’
