Energy efficiency, the growing popularity of ductless and variable refrigerant flow (VRF), the evolution of heat pumps into whole-home solutions, and the Internet of Things (IoT) are a few of the major trends influencing products in the residential air conditioning market.
The Green Tech Line of refrigeration and air conditioning components is designed for use with natural refrigerants R-290 (propane), R-600a (isobutane), and R-744 (CO2). These high-quality, hydrocarbon (HC) and CO2-ready system components include valves, controllers, transducers, filter driers, and microchannel heat exchangers.

In this troubleshooting problem, it’s the middle of July, and you are the follow-up technician on a callback. The original complaint was a “no cooling at all” call, and the technician who preceded you on this job (we’ll call him Technician #1) has only limited experience, but he reported correctly that he found a failed transformer and replaced it.
Data center optimization company stresses importance of a thermal strategy to avoid outages
January 9, 2017
With thermal risks still accounting for 29 percent of unplanned data center outages, data center optimization company, EkkoSense, has detailed how organizations need a more structured thermal approach to kick their addiction to over-cooling — cooling now accounts for 35 percent of overall data center energy consumption.
The Bard MULTI-TEC gives you the ability to link up to 14 wall mount air conditioners to a single intelligent building control. It only takes two wires to each air conditioner, and your entire building can be up and running.
