AMP operate within the Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) industry. The aim of the HVAC industry is to provide internal comfort levels in a variety of settings, through the control of temperature and air quality.
All of the HVAC systems that AMP offer are heat pump systems. This means that not only can they cool internal spaces, but they also provide a means of heating – eliminating the need to have a separate heating system.
These comfort cooling HVAC systems come in a number of different types, from single-split systems suitable for residential and small single room applications, through large multi-split systems for bigger commercial applications. We also provide VRF (variable refrigerant flow) systems, where a single condensing unit can serve multiple indoor units – suitable for hotels and large offices.
How does it work?
All of the above HVAC systems work based on the principles of the refrigeration cycle. An outdoor unit comprises of a compressor, which pumps high pressure / temperature refrigerant gas. This gas then passes through a heat exchanger, where it loses energy (heat) to the outside and condenses into its liquid form. This liquid then passes through another heat exchanger located in the indoor unit.
Air passes over this evaporating coil and, as the liquid refrigerant evaporates, it absorbs energy (heat) from the internal air, hence this air and the room is cooled. The refrigerant, now in a gas form, then returns to the compressor for the cycle to start again. In heating mode this cycle is reversed, with the indoor heat exchanger becoming the condensing coil and the outdoor heat exchanger becoming the evaporating coil.
HVAC systems from AMP
Our range of HVAC ventilation units can help control the internal air quality by the introduction of fresh air. Our range of heat recovery hvac systems have the added benefit of recovering waste energy, using this to preheat or cool the incoming fresh air, thus reducing overall running costs.
AMP are able to offer HVAC systems from three of the leading UK manufacturers: Toshiba, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries and Fujitsu. As well as the system detailed above, we have a number of ancillary products that we can also offer, such as air to water heat pumps, air curtains and sophisticated control system.
