Enerquip, a designer and fabricator of stainless steel and high alloy shell and tube heat exchangers, has added Affiliated Steam & Hot Water to its team of distributors and manufacturer representatives to meet its plans for continued growth.
Daikin Applied Americas announced it is acquiring a minority ownership stake in Riptide IO, a Santa Barbara, California-based software company that focuses on helping building owners connect, manage, and automate building equipment by bringing the benefit of the Internet of Things (IoT) to commercial buildings.
These three working examples show how VRF technology helped a historical building never designed for air conditioning reach Leadership in Energy and Environmental (LEED) Gold certification, a high-rise project meet Title 24 standards, and a convent save $80,000 a year on energy costs.
While the U.S. ranked fourth in the top 10 markets, it’s on the upswing. VRF continued to gain market share from small- to medium- size chillers in 2014, according to the report, and BSRIA expects market growth to continue at an 11 percent compound annual growth rate (CAGR) between 2013 and 2018.
Johnson Controls Inc. (JCI) recently opened the doors to a 12,600-square-foot training facility devoted to increasing the industry’s awareness of VRF technology, equipment, and operation. The center, which officially opened in July, boasts a hands-on lab, two 25-person-capacity classrooms, audio/video conferencing capabilities, and a full curriculum to help HVAC contractors and sales professionals deliver quality VRF solutions.
Launched in 2006, Danfoss’s EnVisioneering Symposia help keep HVACR industry stakeholders apprised of the latest developments in U.S. policy and industry and provide forums in which they can share ideas and information.
German electroplating company implements tri-generation comfort system
