Variable refrigerant flow (VRF) systems have been used since the 1980s. Their space and energy saving characteristics have taken on a new meaning in the context of global climate challenges.

In order to meet the carbon reduction goals set forth by the city, we will need to dramatically reduce fossil fuel consumption in our buildings. The city has identified heat pumps as a key strategy for achieving these goals. Variable refrigerant flow (VRF) heat pumps offer highly efficient, fossil fuel-free heating and cooling, in addition to saving space and cost. During this program, an architect, MEP engineer, public official, and VRF manufacturer’s representative will provide information and insight on the application of VRF systems through the lens of their unique experiences.

This program is one of several that will address technical and practical aspects of energy efficiency, shedding light on the city’s forthcoming requirements for upgrading existing buildings to meet carbon emission goals, among other subject areas.
