The No. 1 trait needed to complete the purchase of another business might just be patience. Here is an inside look at how HVAC owners have successfully approached the acquisition process — from the initial conversation to after the sale finally closes.
These VRF units feature DC, inverter-driven compressors for precise temperature control. They are available in up to 3,280 feet (1,000 meters) of total piping length and include up to 36 indoor connections, which make them easy to install, network, and maintain.
These 150- to 2,500-gallon electric water heaters are available from 12 to 162 kW and feature internal fusing (above 120 A) and magnesium anode rods. The water heaters also offer immersion thermostats; a manual reset high limit; a hinged, lockable door; and a channel iron skid base.
Variable-speed technology has the obvious benefit of providing users with additional choices when it comes to running their HVAC equipment. Rather than one setting that runs at 100 percent all the time, variable-speed allows for layered, configurable settings.
The scale of energy consumption may be more of a surprise, though, as estimates show that data center spaces can consume up to 100-200 times as much electricity as standard office spaces. With that large amount of power being used by a growing number of data centers, the pressure is on to implement energy-efficient design measures that can save money and reduce electricity use.

New ice rinks generally use ammonia as a refrigerant, but R-22 was the choice for many years, and the ice making systems in older rinks can contain several thousand pounds of R-22. In the approaching cold, hard reality of a post-R-22 world, how will rinks keep their ice cold and hard?
