Our Summer 2020 Newsletter Is Here--Technology

GEOTABS, when optimised, are the “perfect marriage” of technology for heating and cooling buildings. “GEO” refers to geothermal heat pumps. “TABS” (thermally activated building systems) include technology like concrete core activation, i.e., pipes embedded in concrete floors through which warm/cold water is pumped to heat/cool a building’s thermal mass. Together, GEOTABS (‘Geothermally Activated Building Systems’) offer tremendous energy savings over conventional systems.

Snowman CO2 Heat Pump Provides Healthy Hot Water

In hot water systems, many viruses and bacteria tend to propagate, posing a threat to health. In general, viruses and bacteria, including the highly pathogenic Legionella bacterium that causes pneumonia, survive and reproduce in water at a temperature of 20 to 50ºC, but Legionella is immediately killed in hot water at a temperature above 70ºC. Therefore, healthy domestic water is achieved by heating water to a temperature above 70ºC.
