Climate Controlled Laboratories

We have two climate-controlled laboratories that allow us to investigate the performance of appliances under a range of environmental conditions. We can control temperature, humidity and air currents to simulate everything from a humid summer’s day to a 26 degrees below zero winters night.

Some of the situations we have investigated include….

  • Room temperature distribution for heating appliances
  • Resistance of solar hot water heaters to freezing
  • Performance of air conditioners
  • Performance of de-humidifiers and humidifiers
  • Performance of heat pump hot water heaters
  • Cold start performance of gas heaters


If you have a specific query or require more information, please contact us to discuss your testing needs.
