President of trade association HEVAC, Graham Wright, comments on an article on the ACR Journal magazine and website which highlights the advantages of a new Hybrid-VRF system.
I read the article on page 20 [ACR Journal Dec/Jan 2016] issue of the with interest and was somewhat concerned about the statement that highlighted BS EN 378 paragraph.
The text is not only incorrect, it is completely misleading in the following aspects:
EN378 deals with refrigeration safety and installation practices and is used by consultants and installers as good practice, it's worth noting that compliance is not mandatory. The text suggest that building owners will have to keep up to date with the standard and that this will be complex and difficult to do.
