HVAC equipment in commercial buildings can present a series of challenges to a facility. Whether it's deteriorating equipment in frequent need of repair, constant volume equipment, antiquated basic controls or excessive leakage, the consequences are often energy and cost inefficiencies. This webcast highlights best practices for holistic HVAC upgrades, and explores how current and emerging technologies –including variable refrigerant flow, variable frequently drive and variable air volume—that can further enhance performance and energy savings.
