World-class comfort at a lower cost – when you get the maths right
It’s easy to just look at the price tag
With its finances under strain, the investor felt that the climate beam system was too expensive and decided to opt for a cheaper fan coil system instead. At this point, Swegon offered to redo its calculations and used ProClim to calculate the cooling requirement for the building as a whole. The results now showed a dry cooling output of 45 W/m2 and not 80 W/m2 which was the previous calculation for the project. How could the first calculation have been so wrong?
It requires expertise to get the calculations right
The first calculation had failed to take the properties of the windows into account and was not based on experience of designing buildings with double glazed façades and automatic exterior shutters. With the new, correct calculation, the difference in price between fan coil and climate beams became negligible, and it was decided to accept the original system proposed by Swegon.
