Commissioning – Common Issues with VRF Installations

This Live Event happened on December 4, 2019 (7:00PM - 7:00PM EST)

ONLINE WEBINAR!

Commissioning Is required by the code and electrification is an essential component of the state’s low carbon future. Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) systems are one solution the industry has for electrifying heating and cooling in very large buildings. These systems have different design and installation considerations than typical split heat pump systems. They also have different allowances within green rating systems. When implementing variable refrigerant systems for mechanical heating and cooling, there are several factors that need to be looked at. This webinar explores the steps and considerations crucial to avoiding common issues with VRF installations.

Learning Objectives

  1. Learn what the role and importance of electric heating and cooling systems are in a low carbon future.
  2. Understand design choices from a selection of applications to position system for improved energy efficiency.
  3. Know what commissioning tasks are required in the NYS Energy Code.
  4. Position commissioning as an integral function of VRF projects in order to overcome challenges of rapidly evolving technology and installation issues.
  5. Develop knowledge of basic commissioning checklists and best practices to ensure efficiency and durability.
