This course will examine the ways in which Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) technology can provide the hospitality industry with benefits beyond conventional HVAC systems. Key topics include identifying the unique challenges hospitality designers face when specifying HVAC systems, technology behind VRF systems, the performance and design benefits of VRF systems, and ways VRF systems were used to maximize occupant comfort and design flexibility.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify the unique challenges hospitality designers face when specifying HVAC systems.
  • Examine the technology behind VRF systems.
  • Analyze the performance and design benefits of VRF systems that can help solve industry challenges.
  • Evaluate two hospitality case studies where VRF systems were used to maximize occupant comfort and design flexibility.
