The system paired with geothermal technology, which led to a 61 percent decrease in energy consumption. VRF’s small footprint also maintained the architectural integrity of buildings dating back to the 1800s. Download the PDF below to read moreYou’ll hear from the school’s director of energy systems, the HVAC distributor and the mechanical engineer, and see photos of the school and equipment.
