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.
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.
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.
achieves a fan energy reduction of 89% when compared to FCU systems.
The bigger carbon impact is from materials and manufacture.
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 basic calculation method, Artus is 251.8kgCO2e. 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, 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 saves up to 43% of the carbon emissions and 64% embodied carbon over service life from a typical 10,000sqm office.
Example comparison, vs. Fan Coil:
10,000sqm office project
25-year service life
Operational carbon saving over service life of
1,335 tonnes CO2e (reduction of 43%)
Embodied carbon saving over service life of
66 tonnes CO2e (reduction of 64%)
What we hope to achieve
By 2026 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 , to significantly reduce their carbon footprint and help to achieve their ESG and carbon targets.
