Active Refrigeration - Innovative HVAC system

Christchurch Town Hall multiple modality cooling, warming and heating system

Active Refrigeration has designed, engineered and installed a revolutionary, efficient, environmentally friendly, HVAC conditioning system in the Christchurch Town Hall, which simultaneously cools, warms and heats the entire public space, providing personal comfort for building users. The company’s bespoke High Temperature Heat Pump (HTHP) refrigerant heat recovery system utilises ammonia, a sustainable refrigerant option, which has zero global warming or ozone depleting potential, eliminating the use of fossil fuels for heating and cooling the building. The system is highly efficient, with each component (cooling, warming and heating) able to be operated independently, or in combination with any other variable.
