The homeowner also wanted to have multiple heating and cooling zones without the need for new ductwork or extensive changes. The CE team was happy to take on this project. Not only were they noisy and unpleasant to look at which detracted from the otherwise beautiful view off the balconies , but they were also difficult to service. In addition to consolidating the condenser units, CE was also tasked with providing multiple heating and cooling zones within the home. After an extensive in-home assessment, the CE team determined that a Toshiba Carrier Ton heat recovery system would be the best equipment for this particular project.
The David Whitney Building, Detroit - VRF Case Study
This new-construction campus consists of two five-story buildings made of steel beams and external glass giving it an industrial yet modern look. Our team at CE was excited to take on this project as a means of re-establishing our relationship with the engineering community. Specifically, our work on the LinkedIn office location building marked our first project with the engineer at Morrissey Engineering , so we wanted to make an excellent first impression by assisting and making installation as seamless as possible. The engineer had done several VRF projects on his buildings in the past and thus recommended a VRF installation to the owner of the building for its versatility and efficiency. This was particularly challenging because the build-out plans were not available when the core and shell were built. As a result, the engineer had to estimate loads for the new system.
What Are The Benefits of Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF)
With coming to an end, we thought this would be a good opportunity to reflect on some of our favorite projects from this past year. Read about a few of our top picks below. When St. We were able to recommend a number of Carrier RTUs, ductless mini-splits, and VRF systems for the most cost-effective approach to this extremely important project. Ultimately, our involvement in this project helped the students and staff at St.
This system is in a small office building with foot-high ceilings using refrigerant A in the variable refrigerant flow system. The VRF system cooling capacity is 5 tons. Assume all rooms shown are offices. Figure 5: This case study example variable refrigerant flow layout shows the preliminary VRF system layout. Courtesy: Stanley Consultants.
