The article offers information on the heating and cooling solutions installed at The Range store in Warrington, England. The solutions aimed at enabling energy efficiency of the store by enabling heat recovery to complement its 12-year-old gas boiler, which supplies heat for the facility. Various solutions were assembled at the store including the VRV IV heat pump, the Daikin Sky Air Seasonal Smart condenser, and the VRV III Heat Recovery system.
