Today’s school facility directors are being asked to do more with less. With limited budgets, they are pressured to reduce operating expenses while maintaining healthy and comfortable learning environments for students. Growing student populations, aging buildings, and rising energy costs only complicate the matter further. School districts are actively looking for HVAC solutions that will save energy and reduce maintenance while providing high levels of comfort and controllability. When properly designed, VRF systems provide increased energy efficiency, reliability, and zoning control to meet the requirements of K-12 school districts.
