On Demand Today’s engineers face increased pressure to deliver more efficient buildings, with tighter timelines and smaller budgets. Pumps have traditionally been a small part of the overall HVAC system, but with improved technology are key to maintaining the original design intention. Moving from field-built to packaged pumping systems simplifies specification, installation, operation, and maintenance.
On Demand The installation of generators is the most common solution for backup power. While the modern generator is highly reliable, the use of multiple generators for critical applications offers the ability to provide redundancy to allow for maintenance or failure. Moreover, paralleling systems provide the capability to increase total capacity while also ensuring uninterrupted backup power protection during maintenance or the failure of a single generator.
On Demand Modern construction requirements, increased interest in indoor air quality, sustainability and the rising cost of energy are driving adoption of Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) systems in the United States and worldwide. As such, building owners, facility managers and project teams will be responsible for buildings where VRF systems are applied with complementary third-party HVAC equipment.
On Demand Once you have selected Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) as the HVAC technology for your next project, you need to consider how to control your system. Integrated controls provide benefits beyond HVAC system control, with the ability to integrate other technologies like a Dedicated Outdoor Air System (DOAS). DOAS systems are designed to condition up to 100% of outdoor air year-round, reduce latent loads, enhance comfort and energy efficiency, and maintain your building’s indoor air quality.
On Demand Mission critical operations cannot be without power for one second. That’s why it’s imperative for facility managers to ensure they have adequate systems on-site to handle any and all power interruptions. Over the last 10 years, power technologies have changed significantly. This webinar will explore these changes.
On Demand Redundancy is a vital aspect to consider when evaluating system infrastructure on a medical campus with critical care facilities. A detailed phasing plan and sequence of operations can be key to a successful project. In this presentation, we’ll examine the importance of these factors through a recently completed central emergency power plant (CEPP) project on the campus of Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU).
On Demand Trane engineering and product experts will review the latest in market trends related to IoT and smart technology, along with connectivity options for small commercial buildings. This webinar will focus on small building connectivity solutions that include smart thermostats and control systems that are compatible with Trane’s full lineup of light commercial rooftop units and split systems for single and multi-zone systems as well as multi-site applications.
On Demand Designing a Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) System for your next project does not have to be complicated. The experts at Trane have broken down VRF System design into a 4-step process, including system type, humidity control, ventilation considerations, and controls selection.
On Demand Traditional power management systems are primarily designed to switch from utility power to another continuous power source, such as a backup generator. Most recently, microgrid technologies are being considered to help optimize the availability of power systems as well as allowing them to accommodate a variety of variable and intermittent distributed energy sources.
