Greenbuild 2016

greenbuild2016

At Mitsubishi Electric, we take pride in creating sustainable cooling and heating technology. Earlier this month, we had the opportunity to share our newest innovations at the Greenbuild International Conference and Expo at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Greenbuild is the largest conference and expo dedicated to green building and sustainable design. It attracts industry leaders and experts from all over the globe. In addition to a diverse crowd, Greenbuild is known for its attractions. This year included a film festival, yoga session and Women in Green Power Breakfast. The buzz was so contagious that #Greenbuild16 became a trending topic on Twitter.

Although this year’s Greenbuild has come and gone, its impact will continue in Los Angeles with the Legacy Project. For this year’s Legacy Project, the U.S. Green Building Council-Los Angeles Chapter helped launch an Eco-Tech Maker Space for the Los Angeles Unified School District. This project offers “S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) curricula, hands-on learning and environmental stewardship emanating from the reuse of discarded, safe manufacturing materials.”

From beginning to end, Greenbuild always brings the energy that inspires us to engage and create technologies for this industry. We look forward to participating in next year’s conference in Boston.

Greenbuild 2015

Greenbuild Logo

This week, thousands of building industry professionals and enthusiasts are gathering in Washington, D.C. for Greenbuild 2015, the world’s largest conference and expo dedicated to green building. Every objective of the annual three-day event – this week from November 18 to 20 – focuses on sustainability, from producing zero waste to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and increasing awareness of green building initiatives. Attendees will learn about the latest products and technologies that make energy-conscious, sustainable living possible.

nov17This year, the show’s Greenbuild Unity Home will allow attendees to experience that sustainable way of life. The 1,620-square-foot, three-bedroom, two-bathroom masterpiece is the result of a collaboration between the Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute, Hanley Wood Media and Unity Homes. The Greenbuild Unity Home demonstrates how you can “maximize a home’s performance while enhancing the comfort, health and security of those who live there” – and, most importantly, do so affordably. As part of that effort, the team selected our Hyper-Heating INVERTER™ (H2i®) M-Series multi-zone system to deliver efficient, whole-home cooling and heating.

Tour this residential showstopper while you can, and stop by Booth #629 to see what else we’re doing to build a better future.

H2i® MXZ – One of “4 HVAC Ideas to Warm Up To”

December 16_4 HVAC Ideas to Warm Up to ImageA recent TecHome Builder article, “4 HVAC Ideas to Warm Up To,” focused on four heating technologies that are catching the eyes of homebuilders today. Our Hyper-Heating INVERTER™ (H2i) MXZ multi-zone heat pump system is one of them.

“If you’re building in cold climates, an efficient heating system is a necessity, ‘hyper-heating’ is even better,” said writer Casey Meserve. The article highlights the many features of the H2i MXZ systems that are beneficial to homebuilders and homeowners, including whole-home capabilities, installation flexibility, extreme energy efficiency and zone control.

Other heating technologies that are helping builders green homes and conserve energy:

  • Solar Air Heating: SolarWall preheats ventilation air by absorbing the heat from the sun and delivering it to the inbound airstream of the building’s HVAC system.
  • Solar Attic Fans: Solaro Aire, a solar-powered attic fan, moves 900 CRM of air per minute. Conditioning the attic removes moisture from the space and decreases the load on the HVAC system.
  • Radiant Flooring: Step Warmfloor self-regulates its temperature to warm the floor evenly throughout the space.

BU News: Tour of Local New Orleans Installations


Our customers and engineers got a unique tour of New Orleans, courtesy of our Southwest Business Unit (SWBU). The SWBU held a special event while down in The Big Easy for Greenbuild 2014 and guided select attendees on a tour of the French Quarter. The outing included stops at landmark establishments that highlighted successful CITY MULTI® Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) zoning installations in the popular neighborhood.

The Palace Café, French Market Inn and Tableau Restaurant rounded out the tour destinations. Our Commercial Manager Steve Jones, Mechanical Engineer Henry Delgado and Commercial Regional Manager Keith Reihl discussed VRF zoning technology, its efficiency and benefits at each stop. Attendees also learned about the HVAC problems these historic buildings presented and why our technology was selected as the solution:

  • Palace Café: The restaurant’s large, open, two-story atrium features a glass store front that provided an unusual cooling challenge. The previous air-conditioning system simply could not handle the incredible heat-gain from the glass. Our Y-Series heat pump system was installed conveniently using the building’s existing ductwork. Our high-static PEFY ducted indoor units deliver the precise cooling loads of the entire space and optimal comfort for the café patrons, no matter what the temperature is outside.

  • French Market Inn: The 1800s hotel needed a highly-efficient system that offered zone control, simultaneous cooling and heating and the ability to preserve its historic architecture. Our R2-Series VRF zoning system offered a solution that did not require structural alterations and the technology needed to better maintain the hotel’s historic integrity. The system’s simultaneous cooling and heating resulted in increased efficiency, energy savings and comfort for all guests.

  • Tableau Restaurant: The high-end restaurant needed a system that could maintain the desired temperature throughout the entire dining area, especially when crowded during peak hours, and quiet operation to not disturb guests. Ceiling space was also limited and, because it’s a historic building, the HVAC design had to comply with historical codes and requirements. The restaurant’s owner also owns Palace Café. He was so pleased with the comfort, efficiency, performance and ease of maintenance of our systems that he had our heat pumps installed in the sister restaurant.

Events such as this highlight our commitment to our Mitsubishi Electric supporters and show how proud we are of our installations in historic districts such as the French Quarter.
