Variable refrigerant flow systems (VRF) have been delivering as much as a 30 percent increase in energy efficiency in Japan and Europe. Instead of piping hot water and chilled water, these systems distribute refrigerant to each fan coil unit (FCU) or air handling unit (AHU) for heating and cooling. Would this system save money in your building?
Ideal with condensing boilers in low temperature applications, AERCO's SmartPlate water-to-water heaters deliver ±4°F temperature control. Available in brazed plate, single wall and plate and frame, double wall configurations, each <10ft² heater ships fully assembled including load monitoring PID controller, sensors, electronic valve, potable water side circulator with clean out connections, DHW drain valve and shut-off valves and inlet strainers on both the boiler water and DHW sides.

Almost every building wastes 10 percent or more of the energy it consumes due to inefficient operation of the HVAC system. In many buildings, the inefficiencies were built in during construction and have become part of the baseline consumption.
Green buildings can create quandaries because some of the architectural features associated with green construction – such as lots of natural light and fewer man-made materials – can make a structure more difficult to operate.
