Advances in VRF Technology Satisfy Cold Climate and Other Application Challenges

The technology allows for cost-effective year-round comfort that is otherwise unavailable in typical fixed-speed or staged heat pumps. H2i overcomes issues commonly associated with conventional heat pumps – such as decreases in low-side pressure, refrigerant mass flow rate and operational capacity. H2i is used in conjunction with Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) zoning systems and is compatible with the control adapters. The result of coupling H2i’s exceptional heating performance with VRF’s benefits is impressive performance reliability, sole heat source functionality, energy efficiency, cost savings, space savings and low ambient

TXVs: Contamination, Sticking, and Troubleshooting

In 2014, the HVAC industry experienced broad contamination issues with thermostatic expansion valves. This educational webinar will help to clarify the TXV issues by providing: 
an overview of TXV function; an explanation of the impact and symptoms of contamination on the TXV; a description of the solutions; troubleshooting guidance for when a system is believed to be contaminated; and insight on common installation problems uncovered during an in-depth technical investigation into the issue.

Next Gen Commercial Water Heating—How to double efficiency and eliminate bulky storage

Commercial water heating systems still use the same basic design methodology for the last 75 years or more.  Typically these systems either use tank style heater or boilers with storage tanks along with multiples installed to mitigate the risk of sudden failure. This design methodology, coupled with hot water draw profiles results in significant efficiency losses that is further exacerbated due to multiples.  Engineers are being challenged to find ways to reduce energy, improve reliability and fit equipment in a smaller space, all without sacrificing performance. This webinar will empower you to design on-demand water heating systems, eliminate storage, and realize space and efficiency savings.

EQ Coatings: Codes, Standards and Corrosion Protection

EQ Coatings are innovative products specifically designed to be used with EQ metal studs.  EQ stands for Equivalent (Equivalency) to traditional material studs.  EQ metal studs allow for improved strength through innovative engineering, giving EQ metal studs improved yield strength at less weight, therefore creating a stronger product over traditional metal studs at a lower cost.

EQ Coatings are applies to EQ metal studs that go through a cold reduction process to raise the yield strength of the stud allowing for a lighter gauge metal stud, therefore creating a lighter weight metal stud.  Since metal studs are usually priced by the weight of metal used, lighter weight translated to a lower cost metal stud.  EQ studs are designed and engineered to meet all building codes, but when paired with an EQ Coating, they can also provide superior corrosion protection to traditional metal studs.

EQ Coatings can be specified to comply with all the new international and domestic material compliance programs for safer human, health and green non-adverse environment.  EQ Coatings provide an option where Architects, Designers and Contractors cans specify building materials that are non-toxic, ecologically neutral, and socially responsible.  EQ Coatings, when specified, can be compliant with most known green building movements.  Unlike traditional metal studs, which almost exclusively have a toxic (hexavalent chromium) chemtreatment applied to their surface for improved corrosion protection.

BIM for Greener Interiors

Interior designers stand to benefit from BIM and BIM-compatible software just as much as architects and contractors. From highly accurate clash detection to reduced change orders to a much more streamlined design and construction process, BIM is poised to continue its upward trend from novelty to best practice, eventually becoming an industry standard.
