Icebar by Icehotel

Icebar by Icehotel, in Heddon Street



Tom Davey, of AC Direct Ltd, who carried out the installation, said: “Once our client saw the potential energy savings of the Daikin Zeas system, he was so impressed that he asked us to extend the installation to include other areas.”
Alex de Pommes, Icebar’s Director, said: “We had been meaning to upgrade our heating, ventilating, air conditioning and refrigeration systems in our restaurant and Icebar for a while. Ascertaining the correct comfort levels for our customers in the restaurant was of prime importance and had to be balanced against energy loss from the large open entrance doors.
This challenge, combined with the constant heat gains in the carefully maintained -5ºC atmosphere of Icebar, led us to work very closely with Daikin UK to design a controlled installation for the whole venue which will lead to heat recovery savings of over 50% by using new technology.”

Why Daikin
