Corporate sustainability efforts are helping to drive the energy-efficient HVAC market
February 15, 2016
As concerns about the environmental impact of energy generation and uncertainty over future energy prices continue to build, commercial building owners are looking for ways to reduce energy spend, notes Navigant Research. This drive for efficiency is increasingly targeting HVAC systems.
Considering everything we do revolves around heat transfer, there’s no better way to visualize heat transfer than with thermal imaging. The technology is getting more affordable every day, and the quick return on investment makes this technology a no-brainer.
If you’ve never tried a radiant ceiling panel, I urge you to do so. I’ve used this panel construction on several projects and have always been delighted with the installation method, performance, and lack of problems.
Just as the 2016 elections are already having an impact on the country’s airwaves, many industry leaders agree they’ll also have a significant impact on both the regulatory and legislative environments impacting the HVACR industry through the end of the calendar year.
St. James United Methodist Church’s mixed-use nature required a versatile comfort fix
February 8, 2016
Because of the mixed-use nature of church buildings, broad range of room sizes, and long vacancy periods punctuated by short stints of high occupancy, many congregations, especially those exploring retrofit projects, have turned to mini-split heating and cooling technologies in the past decade. More recently, commercial VRF systems have added even more capability, simplicity, and efficiency to the already vast number of possibilities offered by ductless technology.
This radiant heating panel supports cooling, dehumidification, and multiple zones of radiant heating while optimizing heat pump performance by automatically adjusting water temperatures based on indoor feedback and outdoor temperature via the included sensor.
