Chillers have long been the HVAC systems of choice for large commercial buildings and other facilities, but they are facing fierce competition from new technologies, such as VRF systems, which are frequently considered to be easier to install and maintain.
While modeling software is often used for the initial design of high-performance buildings, the on-going benchmarking, commissioning, and monitoring of these structures is usually the purview of a building automation systems (BAS).
HVAC systems in commercial buildings consume a lot of energy, which is why many building owners and managers are looking at replacing their older, inefficient equipment with new high-performing systems.
Traveling, at least to me, offers a lot of lessons about human nature, life, and yes, the HVAC industry. It can be a microcosm of entrepreneurship and business acumen. What? That’s crazy, right? But not really.
QMark radiant ceiling panels provide custom, targeted, hidden heat in a wide range of applications. Able to blend in seamlessly with any indoor building space, the radiant ceiling panels are designed to provide localized spot heating or primary heating where it’s needed.
Portable heating and cooling units, like most HVACR products, continue to evolve as advances in technology allow manufacturers to meet consumer demand in previously improbable applications and markets.
