Mr Bob Senior, Consultant M & E Engineer, KJ Tait
"The Coffee Room is the oldest of the reception rooms at the Jockey Club in Newmarket and dates back to 1752. It is a highly glazed room with clerestorey windows and the iconic view of the bronze of Classic Derby winner Hyperion through imposing arched Georgian windows at the front. However these features make the room prone to overheating in summer which was limiting the Club's use of their most iconic room.
The unusually shaped room was difficult to service with very little accessible wall-space, and only the tall ceiling through which to locate ventilation. Hi-Velocity outlets had minimal impact on the coved ceiling. The slim ducts were compact enough to fit in the existing timber roof structure without expensive or intrusive alterations. This delighted the Conservation Officer and the Club.
The Events Manager is pleased with the resulting environment in the room, which is appreciably cooler than before. This allows the Club to take bookings year-round. Previously they had to advise clients to avoid the room for large events in the summer months. "
Mr. Mikael Rust, Landlord's Surveyor, Luxury Apartments, Kensington
"This is a Category One building in a prominent conservation area. Any alterations or additions to the exterior are strongly resisted. The Hi-Velocity system enabled the leaseholder to install air conditioning without the need to put any plant outside the premises. The very creative design blended into the building fabric in combination with highly efficient small duct distribution."
Mr PK Vaish, Home Owner, Macclesfield
"The Hi-Velocity systems allow me to keep a comfortable temperature, regardless of what the weather is doing outside. Keeping the upper floors cool in the summer is particularly helpful for getting a good night's sleep. The system is easy to use and blends into the background."
Mr Alan Lewis, the Millennium Stadium, Cardiff
"We had ceiling cassettes installed during an office refurbishment. Apart from the draughts they weren't too bad in the summer. In the winter the staff complained bitterly of being too cold. The heat from the cassettes was not reaching their feet and they were uncomfortable. We had two Hi-Velocity systems installed and straight away the problem was resolved to everyone's satisfaction."
Mr. Steve Smith, Owner, Alchrist Engineering Ltd, Essex
"The two Hi-Velocity systems heat the factory well and distribute the heat evenly to all areas. This would have been difficult to achieve without using Hi-Velocity. We especially appreciate the benefits on cold mornings."
Mr Andrew Holeshowski, Owner, AMM Construction Ltd
"The Hi-Velocity system was the ideal choice for this project as a diverse range of air outlet vent plates in the walls, ceiling and floors were used to co-ordinate with the interior decoration of each room. Floor outlets were painted to blend seamlessly with the tiles."
Mr and Mrs Peter & Rosemary Lincoln, Norfolk
"We have enjoyed the benefits of the Hi-Velocity system for the last two winters, which have both been colder than average. Having lived in our 100 year old cottage for the past 25 years, we have never been more comfortable. We chose the Hi-Velocity system because it offered an effective way of distributing the heat from an efficient air-source heat pump. The guys from Hi-Velocity planned the whole installation taking into account the structural layout of our much extended house. The ducting is hidden away unobtrusively and the absence of radiators is an additional benefit. The gently circulating air eliminates any feeling of stuffiness and although we were initially worried about not having radiators for drying the odd wet towel, we find that washing on a clothes-horse in the spare room dries very effectively. The system was planned with four independent thermostatically controlled zones which give us the flexibility to keep each area of the house at a temperature suitable for its use. Granny keeps nice and warm in her annexe, while we hardier souls like to be just a little cooler. The ability to use the system in air-conditioning mode in summer is an added bonus. The system is easy to operate and the backup has been fantastic."
Wandsworth Town Library, a listed building
"All expectations were met. The aesthetics of the listed building were maintained due to the unobtrusive, draught-free and quiet Hi-Velocity systems. The library manager and staff are pleased with the environment provided by the energy efficient heat pumps."
Mrs Grazyna Zielinska-Rust, Architect
"We had specified six mini duct systems previously and knew that this would be a difficult installation. Hi-Velocity worked directly with the client and needed little or no input from us for a very good outcome."
Mr Ranjith Ratnasingham, Penten Group Ltd
"I would like to thank you for being so responsive to our requests. It has been a pleasure dealing with you - it is not very often that we come across a company that turns around information so efficiently."
