  • Project Description:

A cost effective way to provide both heating and cooling for the building, VRV was also a good fit here because of the ductless options to make up for lack of ceiling space. The building, prior to the installation of the VRV equipment, didn’t have a direct method of providing cooling during the summer. Fans and window units were occasionally used. The boiler and controls of the radiators didn’t provide the owner a good means of temperature control in the winter. 12 VRV heat recovery units were installed, which provide both heating and cooling. This type of system allows for the individual occupants of the building to have direct temperature control of their area. The owner used the packaged controls to enable set-point restrictions and an occupied/Night Setback schedule that optimizes the efficiency and usage of the systems.

Non-Profit Key Considerations

Unlike other markets, buildings in the non-profit sector don’t fit into a tidy framework. They might be professional office buildings, multi-family structures, former city or county offices or even an old school. Rather than a structural or user challenge , the need to reduce operating costs and renovate existing buildings remains consistent with our non-profit clients.  We appreciate their budget constraints and work with them to install and maintain VRF air conditioning systems that offer superior AC and heating while keeping their energy bills low.

Key Considerations

  • Energy efficient system lowers on-going energy costs
  • Opportunity to reduce overall building construction cost
  • Energy and cost models that can help secure grants and government funding
  • DXS onsite at five key junctures:  onsite training prior to installation, quality control checks during installation, during start-up, 30 days after commissioning for building owner verification, and ongoing training for staff
  • Fast, dependable service and maintenance support after installation
  • Complete inventory of parts and equipment stocked locally
