Format On Demand: Article/Print
Offered by McGraw Hill Construction
Category Other

Cool new Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) technology reduces HVAC energy consumption. VRF technology, relatively new to the U.S., delivers energy-efficient comfort, saves space and is less expensive to maintain than conventional HVAC systems. This course also covers the energy efficiency and environmental images of VRF systems, as well as details ways in which these systems can contribute to LEEDr points.


1. Discuss Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) technology and how it differs from conventional heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems (HVAC). 2. Describe the energy-efficient features of VRF technology.3. Evaluate the energy efficiency and environmental impact of VRF systems.4. Identify the ways VHF systems can contribute to LEEDr points.
