Ability Projects Ltd has been successful in securing Energy Technology Listing (ETL) status for its fan unit controller and associated fan coil unit control strategy.
This allows purchasers of this equipment, such as commercial and industrial owner occupiers, hotel and retail chains, developers and many others may be able to benefit from 100% first year capital allowances on their expenditure. Also, utilising Energy Technology List equipment such as this Ability package is one way to improve the SKA rating awarded to any office refurbishment project.
Ability chairman, Peter Lowther commented: “to say we are delighted to gain ETL listing would be a complete understatement. Our controls team have worked so hard on this and to have achieved the award makes all their efforts so worthwhile – I’m very proud.”
Peter Lowther went on to say: “I have always wanted Ability to drive fan coils into the energy efficiency future. Fist, because we need fan coils to compete effectively against other systems such as chilled beams and second, because there is no greater pleasure than pioneering the way forward.”
He concluded: “a recent article put out by the Chilled Beam and Ceiling Association claimed that chilled beams were more efficient than fan coils. The article however, did not allow for many of the more standard fan coil control techniques and certainly did not allow for the ETL listed Ability Delta strategy. The Ability ETL listed strategy can be applied to any Ability fan coil product rather than just the company’s own Matrix products. Any organisation with a budget therefore, will be able to benefit from this advance.“
