Carrier - New Carrier CPD on Efficiency gets CIBSE Approval

Carrier CPD - CIBSE Approval - Water Chillers - Comfort Cooling

Carrier CPD

CIBSE is publishing a new Carrier CPD on assessing the efficiency of water chillers for comfort cooling in commercial buildings. The module highlights the differences in approach between various efficiency ratings, and the implications for building services design.

It concludes that, while EER, SEER and ESEER provide standardised values of efficiency, they are not necessarily good indicators of ‘real’ system efficiency. A new approach, based on Plant Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (PSEER), is recommended.
