During the past eight years, architects, building owners and HVAC design and contractor professionals throughout North America are experiencing what Asia and Europe have known for the past 30 years: that Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) heat pump systems offer superior comfort, the lowest noise levels, high energy efficiency, and the smallest space requirements when compared to traditional building HVAC systems. VRF has grown substantially in US building market, replacing standard technology such as chilled water VAV, packaged rooftops and water source heat pump systems. This presentation will introduce building professionals to this proven technology and discuss the advantages and design considerations that will reduce power needs, eliminate mechanical rooms, improve occupant comfort, and even shorten floor to floor height. Real world examples of new building and retrofit applications will be reviewed as well as costing trends.
