RAC becomes RACHP as group builds on cooling’s natural links with heat pumps
The Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Group of the Building & Engineering Services Association has added heat pumps to its portfolio, thus becoming the RACHP group.
RACHP group chairman Scott Gleed explained there was strong support for the growing popularity of heat pumps to be reflected in the group’s identity.
He said: “The thermodynamic principles associated with heat pump technology are closely aligned with those relating to refrigeration and air conditioning, so that the relevant skills and expertise already exist within the group. This needs to be made clear to end users and clients.”.
And he added that the change would highlight to prospective members that the Association was the “natural home” for companies whose scope included a specialism in the installation of air-source, ground-source and/or water-source heat pumps.
