PORTLAND, Or. — Fujitsu General America has partnered with Portland, Oregon-based Ventacity Systems to provide a more efficient heating, cooling, ventilation, and controls solution for commercial buildings.
The joint solution combines Ventacity’s energy-efficient ventilation and the company’s newly-introduced Ventacity HVAC 2 Smarter Building Platform whole-building controls technology with Fujitsu’s full line of Airstage VRF heating and cooling systems. The two systems, working together seamlessly, enhance comfort, provide better zoning, and create a healthier indoor environment.
The plug-and-play integration between the Airstage system and Ventacity’s cloud-enabled heat recovery ventilator (HRV) effectively lowers the variable refrigerant flow (VRF) capacity needed in order to keep buildings at set-point temperatures while ventilating per ASHRAE 62.1. The addition of Ventacity’s HVAC 2 platform adds a cloud-based system that helps cost-effectively monitor and manage HVAC systems in a single building or across entire building portfolios, capturing vital building analytics that can optimize the system’s performance.
The packaged solution will be attractive to design-build contractors and engineers who focus on small- to medium-sized commercial buildings while searching for efficient, sustainable, low-carbon emission solutions.
“Our partnership with Fujitsu will take the HVAC industry into the 21st century, and, for the first time, enable HVAC contractors to apply modern cloud-based technology and simple automated processes to provide commercial buildings with a healthier, more efficient, and more smartly managed environment,” said Sal D’Auria, founder and CEO, Ventacity Systems.
