LG’s VRF system delivers total tenant comfort in mixed-use mill complex
September 18, 2017
On the National Register of Historic Places, the renovation of The Mill required an update to modern amenities with limited modifications of the building’s envelope. In addition to the preservation of the structure, the developer also desired to make the building a net-zero facility in the future, with plans to restore the turbine of the pre-existing hydro-electric dam.
The York VRF Gen II includes a re-engineered outdoor unit line with an impressive operating range, a wide selection of single module sizes, an indoor unit line that includes re-engineered ducted units with greater static pressure, a full range of multi-port change-over boxes for heat recovery systems, and enhanced controllers.
Chillgard variable refrigerant flow (VRF) Refrigerant Detectors operate with a stable zero baseline. PAIR technology eliminates sensor drift and allows operation for lengthy periods over temperatures ranging from 32° to 140°F, 0° to 60°C, and 0-95 percent relative humidity levels without adjustment or maintenance.
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.
Variable refrigerant flow (VRF) technology is relatively new to the U.S., yet it has quickly become a very popular option in the commercial market. VRF is now moving into the residential market as well.
This Wi-Fi tool allows installers to operate a Fujitsu Airstage VRF system from anywhere with a smartphone, laptop, or tablet. Airstage VRF systems are controlled from a webpage or by using an iOS or Android app.
Maintains architectural integrity in historic Iowa school building
May 22, 2017
When Smouse decided to improve its facilities, the school needed a versatile HVAC upgrade that balanced efficiency with the unique design needs of a historic building with several floors of varying environments. Most importantly, Smouse required a system that would provide an optimal comfort environment for its students while preserving the architectural integrity of the building.
The ProSpace variable refrigerant flow (VRF) wireless control interface creates an open communication platform that allows Trane VRF systems to integrate with hotel room thermostats and building-level control systems. The control is equipped with motion and infrared sensors.
While many educational sessions were presented at the Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration (AHR) Expo, perhaps the most popular was the course on global HVAC trends offered by the Building Services Research and Information Association (BSRIA).
