What is Zoning? (Occupancy Comfort)
Here’s the thing about conventional HVAC systems: they’re commonplace and most building occupants are unaware there’s a better way to heat and cool. We’ve become complacent to hot and cold spots, draftiness and excessively high energy costs during summer and winter. Fortunately, there’s a heating and cooling solution with no compromises involved.
What is Heat Recovery?
Heat recovery extends the core concept of Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) technology to deliver higher efficiencies, utility cost savings and greater comfort control in buildings with zone diversity. METUS offered the industry’s first two-pipe VRF system with heat recovery’s most celebrated benefit: simultaneous heating and cooling.
What is All-electric VRF Technology?
All-electric Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) technology is the fastest growing segment of the commercial HVAC industry. Across the United States, developers and owners are discovering how VRF heating and cooling systems help future-proof their buildings and reduce operational costs.
How Do VRF Systems Improve Sustainability?
Building owners and developers are navigating an evolving real estate market and regulatory environment where sustainability significantly impacts the value, operating costs and marketability of their properties. Sustainable buildings meet our needs for comfort, health and safety while minimizing waste and environmental impacts. Unfortunately, outdated mechanical systems and fuel sources limit a building’s adaptability in this transition. For example, conventional gas-fired heating systems are familiar but increasingly impractical for modern buildings.
How VRF Technology Helps Future-Proof Buildings?
Today, building owners, operators and developers have more to consider than just securing tenants. Rising demand for a more sustainable built environment is driving swift changes in government regulation, legislation and building codes. Buildings currently account for 39% of the carbon emissions in the U.S. Many new requirements are geared toward increasing efficiency while reducing carbon footprints and air pollution. The goal: future-proof the built environment.  
Senior Living
Offer your residents better, fresher air and custom comfort control with Mitsubishi Electric HVAC US VRF solutions. Precise zoning with independent control gives patients, residents and staff control over their own comfort. Our indoor units sense temperature, humidity, lighting, and occupancy, which can make adjustments automatically in order to improve comfort control and system efficiency.
Office Building
The sun rises in the east and sets in the west, so a single office building is often half in the cool morning shade, while the other half is in warm, direct sun. This is one of the key reasons we created Mitsubishi Electric Trane HVAC US variable refrigerant flow (VRF) technology. VRF is cutting edge commercial air-conditioning technology – the only two-pipe simultaneous heating and cooling system in the world.
Multi-Family
Everyone has their own definition of comfort, making VRF zoning systems the perfect solution for multi-family living establishments. Tenants can easily customize conditions in their living space, while some systems can even provide cooling and heating to multiple zones at the same time. So tenants will enjoy precise comfort, and you’ll enjoy up to 40% added efficiency.  
K-12 Education
Children learn better in comfortable environments — but it’s no secret that education budgets tend to be tight. Mitsubishi Electric Trane HVAC US VRF is just the solution to maximize comfort and operational efficiency, while limiting overall lifecycle costs and reducing energy consumption. 
Indoor Agriculture
Indoor agriculture is a growing market, both literally and figuratively. All over the world, crops are cultivated indoors for a variety of reasons — but mainly due to control over growing conditions. Despite their best efforts, meteorologists can’t always predict the weather. And even when they can, protecting crops from harsh weather conditions isn’t always feasible.
