Ductless HVAC systems giving architects, designers more room to express their vision (video)
Panasonic used AHR 2016 to highlight a trio of advancements designed to bring about more heating and cooling efficiency in commercial spaces.
Panasonic introduced its expanded line of heat recovery units. Previously, the units were available only in 6- and 8-ton models. They now are available in 6-, 8-, 10- and 12-ton single zone sizes. Those can be combined with three outdoor units.
The company also has unveiled new distribution kits designed to reduce installation costs for VRF units. It also spotlighted DC fans that are now included in its indoor HVAC units, which work to improve the efficiency of the buildings entire system.
In this video from AHR 2016, Malcolm Persaud, Panasonic’s senior manager for product development, discusses how today’s ductless systems are benefitting building designers and planners and, ultimately, end-users.
