Higher education campuses possess a wide variety of conditioning needs, from dorm rooms and administrative offices to gymnasiums and lecture halls. Mitsubishi Electric Trane HVAC US VRF systems can provide exceptional comfort, energy efficiency and indoor air quality for each unique space on campus. Additionally, they offer flexibility to accommodate change or expansion as your campus grows.



Our customizable system configurations offer highly efficient and economical solutions that more than meet the needs of the college or university’s campus. Whether air-source or water-source, our compact units can be installed in tight indoor or outdoor spaces because they only require minimal piping, or ductwork if applicable. And when it’s time to expand, our VRF zoning systems can complement your existing chiller systems, so you don’t max out what’s in place, or don’t have to reconfigure your whole setup. Plus, you’ll only need to add small refrigerant lines rather than bulky water piping.

With such ease of design and installation and with minimal required maintenance, you can save in the long-run in total lifecycle costs.



With such customizable comfort and the quiet nature, you’ll find our VRF systems are ideal for campus environments like libraries and dorms where students need to focus on their studies. Mitsubishi Electric indoor units operate at whisper-quiet levels, as low as 19 dB(A), and outdoor units operate at levels as low as 58 dB(A), which is quieter than a human whisper. So students and staff can feel the comfort, but they won’t have to hear it.



Good air quality is essential in higher education settings. Instead of simply moving air and all of the germs within it through ducts, our ductless models actually filter air using a Lossnay® energy recovery ventilator (ERV), which eliminates germs, toxins, odors, viruses, bacteria and other potentially harmful contaminants, while replacing them with conditioned fresh air from the outside.



Mitsubishi Electric VRF zoning systems are up to 40% more efficient when compared to conventional systems. This is due to the fact that the built-in INVERTER-compressor technology uses the minimum amount of energy necessary to maintain comfort levels while adjusting to partial-load conditions, which occur most of the time. And you won’t have to pay to heat or cool rooms or zones that aren’t in use.

Our highly-efficient systems can also help you reach LEED certification and a more environmentally-friendly campus. This can result in your campus buildings qualifying for tax credits, incentives and utility rebates — so you can be as budget-friendly as you are earth-friendly.
