In 2001 The Government introduced capital allowance (ECA) to reward businesses that invest in energy saving equipment.

ECA's are given on 100% of your expenditure in the first year. This means you can reduce the profits for its period of the investment, on which you pay tax by 100% of the expenditure incurred when buying equipment from Millennium.

Therefore on equipment costing £10,000, your business will reduce its taxable profit by the full £10,000. That makes the first year saving from the ECA £3,000.

Daikin Air Purifiers


The importance of indoor air quality

Improved breathing comfort

  • indoor air qualityA link is increasingly being made between health problems and the quality of the air we breathe. Reported cases of allergic diseases and asthma are on the rise. According to the EFA*, over 80 million people across Europe have some form of allergic disease and their prevalence is increasing.
  • Today's residences and buildings are better insulated than ever, but this implies a limited exchange of outdoor air with indoor air. As a result, the air we breathe indoors can be more polluted than outdoor air. Moreover, we commonly spend up to 90% of our time in indoor environments.
  • Indoor air can include
       Airborne allergens such as pollen, dust, house dust mites droppings and pet dander.
       Triggers to allergens such as moulds, tobacco smoke and adjuvant substances.

Air conditioning is the process of treating the temperature, humidity, cleanness and distribution of the air.

Our air conditioners offer precise temperature control. You can always create the climate in which you feel best, with the right temperature. Not only does it create comfort, it makes you feel fresh and active even in the most extreme outside conditions.

Air conditioners can also offer heating. You can enjoy the perfect constant temperature all year through, no matter what are the outside conditions It is an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional heating because it takes energy from the outside air and brings it inside. Hence the name heat pump.

Our air conditioners produce clean, healthy air. All indoor units are equipped with filters that take dust, pollen, smoke, ... from the air. According to the needs of the customer the level of filtration can be increased. Filtration is critical for people with allergies.

In cooling mode an air conditioner dehumidifies the air, creating a better feeling of well being. Bear also in mind that a correct humidity level limits the growth of dust mites and moulds, which again has a positive effect on people with allergies. Human beings feel that 40 to 60 % is a comfort level of humidity. Also a correct humidity level ensures a longer lifetime of your appliances and house.

Ventilation can be integrated in the air conditioning system. It takes out the inside air and pushes in fresh, conditioned air from outside. In mid season, when the air conditioning is turned off, the ventilation can work independently. Our ventilation systems can also be installed without the air conditioning installation.

The principle of air conditioning always comes down to the same:

absorb energy in one place and release it in another place

The process requires an indoor unit, an outdoor unit and copper piping to connect both. Through the piping the refrigerant flows from one unit to another. It is the refrigerant that absorbs the energy in one unit and releases it in the other. 

Cooling mode
1 Indoor unit
A fan blows the hot indoor air over a heat exchanging coil through which cold refrigerant flows. The cold refrigerant absorbs the heat from the air and cooled air is blown into the room.

2 Copper piping
The refrigerant circulates through the units and the piping and takes the heat from the indoor unit to the outdoor unit.

3 Outdoor unit
Through compression, the refrigerant gas is heated and its boiling point increases. In the outdoor unit the obtained heat through compression is released to the outdoor air by means of a fan which blows the outdoor air over a heat exchanging coil.

4 Refrigerant
The liquid refrigerant flows back to the indoor unit.

5 Indoor unit
Back in the indoor unit, the refrigerant is decompressed and thus enabled to extract heat form the indoor air. 

With air conditioning you can create the comfort in which you feel best, with the right temperature and a comfortable humidity. Modern air conditioners produce clean, healthy fresh air, dehumidify the air and prevent mold. All of this is able with neither draught nor noise. 

In short, air conditioning makes you feel better, more active and fit, resulting in many advantages, because he or she who feels better is more creative and productive. And who doesn't like to be in a shop, café, restaurant or hotel with air conditioning, certainly in the summer?

Service and maintenance is a vitally important requirement for all air conditioning and refrigeration systems. As standard we offer on 3-year warranty air conditioners, providing a maintenance contract is taken for that period.
