The future of air conditioning

Published:  04 February, 2016

Mitsubishi Electric, air conditioning, VRF

A free CPD-accredited guide from Mitsubishi Electric looks at the challenges face by our built environment due to increasing legislation, the drive for energy efficiency and the need to reduce CO2 emissions — leading to the building-services industry beginning to find new ways to heat, cool and ventilate buildings that are increasingly airtight.

The premise is that what is needed is an approach that combines the best of traditional 4-pipe chiller systems with the efficiencies and flexibility of 2-pipe VRF air conditioning.

The guide looks at the pros and cons of existing options, while examining alternatives such as Mitsubishi Electric’s Hybrid VRF system, which removes the need for detecting refrigerant leaks by using water instead of refrigerant in occupied spaces.
