  During the Festival of Britain, the Hall reaps the benefit of a new experimental heat pump which has been constructed by The Ministry of Fuel and Power. 
  By the use of refrigerants of a low boiling point, the heat pump can win heat from such an unpromising source – the River Thames. It can even be used in reverse to provide cooling during the summer months.This particular type of natural cooling intervenes mainly in the lower ground coffee shop through the main entrance doors, unlike the rest of the building where predominantly air conditioning is installed.

The contingency of several water suppliers is not overlooked for the some 20,000 gallons which are stored as a stand-by in six high level tanks.There is also an elaborate automatic sprinkler and fire flooding installation in areas where it is required by Council regulations. This process used at the Royal Festival Hall is sensitive to changing conditions both inside and out, implacable in its defiance of London’s besieging dust and soot. A pure filtered steam of air is directed to all parts of the building, warmed or cooled, dried or moistened, at the will of the official responsible for the interior climate, or by the automatic instruments.

The air within the auditorium is carefully conditioned, pushed through the sots in the ceiling and extracted under the floor level.This downward method of extraction prevents dust and other impurities from rising. The induction of air without the noise-proof system of the structure was a problem which had to be carefully considered. Before the air enters the plant room, it passes over the 60 foot length of absorbant material. By this time, any sound is eliminated and the air is filtered through into the soundproof core. It is then conditioned in the plant room and finally passes through a second length of absorbant duct which is designed to remove any noise caused by the plant itself. The Royal Festival Hall uses groundwater to cool its auditorium and its adjacent premises. Groundwater is abstracted from the underlying chalk aquifer and pumped through a heat exchanger, which is coupled to a cooling system. The cooling system is sized for a maximum instantaneous cooling load of 1.2MW, although the average heat input during the trial was 350KW.

When first commissioned in 2004, the borehole cooling system was licenced for an annual abstraction of 132000 m3, the effluent warmed
