Low Carbon

Artus plays an important role in achieving net zero targets. It offers a significant reduction in operational and embodied carbon when compared to other heating and cooling solutions available on the market.

Net zero can only be achieved by both increasing the amount of non-fossil energy and by reducing demand. The Dutch Green Building Council have calculated that for the world to meet the COP21 Paris Agreement, energy use will need to reduce by 60%. This is called the ‘Paris proof’ concept.

Artus Low Carbon Qualities

Artus achieves a 63% reduction in energy use for air conditioning when compared to a traditional fan coil unit, one of the commonest forms of air conditioning in use in the UK. This neatly ties in with the Paris proof concept.

Operational Carbon

Artus provides a significant reduction in energy usage and operational carbon due to the low pressure drop and completely variable nature of the fan speed when compared to ducted FCU systems.

Artus achieves a fan energy reduction of 89% when compared to FCU systems.

Embodied Carbon

The bigger carbon impact is from materials and manufacture.

Artus enables a significant reduction in embodied carbon due to its innovative design and the compact nature of the product, dramatically reducing the overall volume of material required.

Using the CIBSE TM65 calculation method, the embodied energy of an Artus AR60 42 is 288.0kgCO2e. This has been achieved due to the efficiency of air part design, treading a balance between surface area for heat transfer and fan speed.

Due to the super slow running of the fan, Artus has an extended design life compared to comparable systems. So, not only is there less embodied carbon associated with materials and manufacture, Artus has been conscientiously designed and built to last.

Switching to Artus saves up to 89% of the fan carbon emissions and 43% of the embodied carbon of the air conditioning installation on a floor. This is based on a 20 year service life for an example 20,250sqm office.

Embedded carbon

What we hope to achieve

By 2026 Artus aims to have made a significant impact through successful integration and operation of our units in buildings worldwide, replacing traditional systems that have a higher energy consumption.

There are already a large number of companies making the switch to Artus, to significantly reduce their carbon footprint and help to achieve their ESG and carbon targets.
