The Fitzroy Inn – A Unique Air Conditioning Challenge

Tempco Energy Solutions recently provided Daikin reverse cycle air conditioning to the Fitzroy Inn Accommodation and Wedding Centre.

The historic Fitzroy Inn built circa 1836 is one of the oldest and finest examples of early Australiansettler’s architecture. This charming Victorian colonial building has hand cut sandstone and vaultedcapped timber ceilings exhibiting some of the best examples of convict masonry and craftsmanship.

We had to install modern air conditioning while maintaining the ambience and atmosphere of such a unique and bespoke building.It was an undeniable challenge.

Tempco Energy Solutions installed a combination of Daikin Multi Split and Single Split systems utilising a combination of the Daikin FVXS Floor Consoles and the new Daikin Lite Wall Split Systems.

The installation into the 12 Boutique Accommodation rooms took only 2 days, with not a pipe to beseen, not a thing out of place.

Another remarkable Tempco Energy Solutions installation.

Container Home, Robertson

Heating & Cooling a Container Home

Tempco Energy Solutions was asked to design and install air conditioning for this quite unusual project. This container home was constructed in Melbourne, shipped to and then fabricated in Robertson in the Southern Highlands. The construction was flat roof and to be installed direct on concreter footings.

Tempco designed and installed a Daikin Multi Split inverter Air Conditioning  system utilising their  latest  range of fully flat cassette systems – Design and genius in one. Daikin’s fully flat cassette is a powerful efficient and discreet solution for Robertsons harsh Winter climate.

Our Client Mr Marks wanted the latest technology and innovative functions to enhance this already cutting edge project.

The five installed cassettes blended beautifully into the space and with its hi-tech air distribution system made them the perfect system for the project.

Mr and Mrs Newman, Burradoo.

This newly constructed luxury home required careful design.  A large Georgian styled stair case opened up the upper and lower levels and heat loss from the lower level to the first floor was a major consideration. The formal ground floor Living area was fitted with an integrated Rinnai Natural gas Flame fire. A Brivis 5 star 30 kW ducted gas furnace was selected for the upstairs bedrooms and siting room. The whole house system was further enhanced with the Brivis Energy management zoning system. The ductwork for the upstairs area was sized for an add on cooling system should it be required in the future.

Brivis 6 Star SP630IN

Rinnai Sapphire flame Fire
