SMARTech Heating & Cooling are delighted to have been working in partnership with Whitehall Garden Centre in Lacock, Wiltshire.
How We Helped
Our work with Whitehall Garden Centre started with an Energy Management Survey.
SMARTech Heating & Cooling installed Real-Time Energy Monitoring equipment into Whitehall Garden Centre to generate minute by minute, 24/7 analytics on energy consumption across the site.
We also carried out an in-depth site survey to collate data. This enabled us to identify WHERE, WHEN and HOW energy was being consumed and, most importantly, wasted.
Our team of specialist Energy Consultants analysed the data and presented a report which identified areas of wastage and recommendations on actions to prevent and reduce energy wastage.
This report included an overview of potential financial and carbon savings, costs of solutions and payback times.
Working with the team at Whitehall Garden Centre, a plan was developed to target a 40% reduction in energy consumption through a range of measures including:
- Energy monitoring and base load reduction
- LED lighting
- Voltage Optimisation
- SMART Refrigeration (chilled unit energy savers)
- Evaporative cooling
Savings Achieved – 40% Energy Reduction
SMARTech Heating & Coolings recommendations enabled Whitehall Garden Centre to implement a range of measures to further reduce their energy consumption achieving an additional 30% energy reduction. The measures taken included:
- Change behaviours and management processes to reduce baseload energy consumption
- Reducing the reliance on hot air curtains to store entrances through a destratification strategy
- Changing behaviours in relation to use of air conditioning
- Installation of sensors to warehousing zones
By inputting an evaporative cooling system, it enables Whitehall to control the air temperature of the server room. Evaporative cooling is a completely natural wayof producing refreshing cool air and only runs at 10% of the running cost of air conditioning.
