Meet the H2i R2-Series – A New Leader in the Field

Introduced last month at the 2014 AHR Expo, the H2i R2-Series is the latest addition to our Hyper-Heating INVERTER (H2i®) family of products and a groundbreaking force within the industry.

No other manufacturer has achieved the same level of heating capacity at low ambient conditions as the H2i R2-Series. In addition to heating at 100 percent at zero degrees Fahrenheit, the system can operate at an impressive 85 percent heating capacity down to minus 13 degrees Fahrenheit, giving the H2i R2-Series the highest heating capacity at the lowest temperature in the field. So, for projects in climates such as the Midwest and New England where winter temperatures dip as low as 10 degrees, there’s no need to think twice about the HVAC solution – the H2i R2-Series is the way to go.

Project Profile: Chandler City Hall, Chandler, Ariz.

January 29_Chandler City Hall ImageFor more than 20 years, city officials in Chandler, Ariz., set aside funds to pay for a new municipal complex. The goal was to create a sustainable, mixed-use city hall that would cater to the community’s civic needs and meet the city’s energy reduction goals. Most importantly, the new complex’s design needed to be intelligent and reliable because it not only houses the city offices and council chambers but the city hall’s nerve center – 17 electrical rooms and nine data closets – as well.

Tackling the challenge was Phoenix’s The Smith Group JJR (Smith), who designed and engineered the new five-building, 137,000-square-foot civic center complex, which now also includes a television studio, printing center, community art gallery, courtyard and parking facility.

Smith’s lead mechanic, Jon Silhol, PE, LEED AP, BD+C knew that the center’s multiple electrical rooms and data closets, which provides power to each of the five buildings, needed a high performance HVAC system that could handle the inevitable heat gain produced by the equipment and maintain the room temperature at a constant 75 degrees Fahrenheit – a crucial factor to the equipment’s operation – without fail.

Silhol decided our Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) zoning system was the best fit for the job. For the city hall’s electrical hub, he went with our Y-Series technology and the R2-Series for smaller rooms, bathrooms and hallways. The zoning capability of these systems allow for the HVAC in the nerve center to operate separately from the HVAC systems powering the rest of the complex. In the event of a power failure, stand-by generators can power the low electric load requirement of the Y-Series and one of the R2-Series systems, instead of having to power HVAC for the entire complex, providing the utmost security and reliability.

The new city hall strikes that hard-to-find balance between aesthetics and practicality, serving as the city’s icon of excellent design and sustainability. And, as the icing on the cake, Chandler was recently named one of only 24 city halls in the entire country to receive the LEED® Gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC).

Project Profile: Plateau Valley Medical Clinic, Collbran, Colo.


The Plateau Valley Medical Clinic in Collbran, Colo. is a 6,400-square-foot, curvilinear clinic building, which means that space constraints are tight, and there is little room for a more traditional air system. The building’s unique design isn’t the only aspect of the medical clinic that requires a more advanced HVAC system: the fluctuating temperatures of western Colorado necessitate a system with individual temperature controls for each room.

When Big Horn Consulting Engineers, Inc. (Big Horn) was presented with the unique needs of the Plateau Medical Clinic, they knew exactly what to recommend: our advanced R2-Series Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) zoning system– the only two-pipe heat-recovery system that simultaneously cools and heats. Shawn Brill, a founding partner of Big Horn and 30-year HVAC engineer explained that the selection of Plateau Valley’s HVAC system was a “no brainer.”

The indoor units provide complete zoned comfort control throughout the medical center, so the waiting area can be kept at one temperature while the individual exam rooms can be set to another temperature, maximizing patient comfort.

Jessi Clark, an administrator for the Plateau Valley Hospital District, is enormously pleased with the final results. “I love the performance of this VRF system,” Clark said. “I have an indoor unit in my office directly over my desk. It is so quiet I don’t even know it is operating. The HVAC system provides a healthy, quiet environment for my patients and is ideal for health care facilities.”

Advanced Rooftop Unit Campaign Supports Commercial Buildings Making the Switch

What are facility managers at major brands like Target, Whole Foods and Adidas doing to improve the energy efficiency of their retail buildings? They’re focusing on their HVAC systems, specifically the rooftop units (RTUs). These three brands have joined a new program called the Advanced Rooftop Unit Campaign (ARC) to help them achieve their energy efficiency goals.

October 4_Advanced RTU Campaign ImageARC acts as a support group by offering resources and information to commercial building owners and managers seeking to replace or retrofit their RTUs, saving them energy and money in the long run. ARC participants also become eligible for achievement awards if they properly document their progress.

But why RTUs? According to ARC, if all 10- to 20-ton commercial units nationwide were replaced with the most efficient units, businesses would save about $1 billion each year in energy costs. Energy-efficient systems, like our R2-Series VRF zoning system, provide more consistent space conditioning and more control over temperatures than older models. This means fewer occupant complaints about comfort.

The campaign, which is sponsored by ASHRAE and the Retail Industry Leaders Association, will run through the summer of 2014. To learn more, visit www.advancedrtu.org.
