Mitsubishi Electric’s web-based controls are a top-of-line building control system. With 3-D, interactive graphics, the system allows you to adjust temperature on an entire floor, an entire building or the whole complex.

Adequate on-campus living options are crucial to universities and colleges, but so is keeping students comfortable. Fairmont State University in West Virginia faced this situation when replacing an old, on-campus apartment living complex with University Terrace – a 110,000-square-foot facility designed to house 345 students. With winters reaching below-zero temperatures, Fairmont State knew they needed something energy efficient, low maintenance, and offered each suite temperature control. Ultimately, they went with Mitsubishi Electric Cooling & Heating Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) technology. In this case study you will hear from both the school and the construction engineer on how VRF technology allows the university to save money over time and keep students happy.
