Business and shopping centers are large buildings characterized by their high energy consumption. 40% of the overall consumed energy is the approximate total consumption of the shopping centers in Turkey. When we closely look at the business and shopping centres, we see that lighting and HVAC systems are the major consumers of energy in those buildings. The energy consumption of HVAC systems in shopping centers can vary from 10% to 60% of the overall energy consumption in the building.
In shopping centers there are multiple facilities with different functions such as cinema, café, shops and so on. Therefore HVAC requirements and energy efficiency should be carefully examined and analysed in order to provide an optimal return on investment.
In other words, selection of HVAC systems and components should be based on detailed examination of energy efficiency, cost analysis and return on investment.
Selection of HVAC for Shopping Centers
Depending on the values obtained from the feasibility you may consider solutions such as Comfort Air Handling Unit, Air Handling Unit with Heat Recovery or Fresh Air Handling Unit. The energy efficiencies of the alternative scenarios must be compared. In order to determine the best energy efficient solution, alternative scenarios should be produced based on HVAC requirements, monthly and annual analysis on energy consumption of various facilities within shopping centre complex.
Shopping Centre’s HVAC Service
Although the energy efficiency has the top priority in the selection process of HVAC system, service and maintenance issues are also crucial factors affecting the HVAC system selection. In case of a support need, quick response and intervention of the producer company will reduce the potential problems that may affect the operation of system in long term.
