Padua, Italy, 21 March 2019: Any work on HVAC systems in historical buildings and in museums is critical by definition, said Giandomenico Lombello, Group Managing Director, Carel. “The simple fact of having to work in contexts with considerable architectural and structural constraints makes these operations very complex, and requires the use of tools and products that are suitable for conserving our artistic heritage,” he said.

Lombello shared that recently Carel has completed a project in Castel Sant’Angelo, a historical building in Rome, installing a measurement and supervision system. “The customer’s request was very challenging and required the work to be non-invasive and totally concealed from visitors, while ensuring high standards of efficiency and high reliability,” he said. Lombello explained that the rooms, due to their structure, had different thermal and humidity loads, and the works kept in the building required different set points for optimum conservation. “The solution,” he said, “made it possible to fulfil the customer’s requests regarding the aesthetics of a historical site and the safeguarding of works of art, while at the same time complying with the highest standards of efficiency, reliability and system performance.”
