Hotel du Vin embraces HVRF

Hotel du Vin, HVRF, Mitsubishi Electric, Hybrid VRF

In May, Hotel du Vin opened its nineteenth UK hotel in Stratford-upon-Avon. The 46-bedroom boutique hotel is spread across two convertedGrade II Listed Georgian townhouses.

The refurbished building uses Mitsubishi Electric’s Hybrid VRF air conditioning to offer complete, controllable comfort for guests, using the new PAR-CT01 touch screen room controllers. The Hybrid system minimises the amount of on-site refrigerant, removing any need for leak detection within the bedrooms and helping reducing annual maintenance for the Hotel.

Nicolas Jefford, general manager of the hotel, says:“It is vital that we have reliable heating and cooling that both we and our guests can control, so that we can provide the right environment with minimum energy use. It’s still early days but so far, we have been impressed with the system.” Hybrid VRF offers the same flexibility of design and operation as traditional VRF air conditioning systems but uses water to transfer heating or cooling to individual rooms. The use of water also delivers room comfort usually associated with chiller technology.
