How does Mitsubishi Electric make comfort personal for contractors? Come see us at Comfortech 2015 and find out.

The annual event, held this year from September 15-17 in St. Louis, highlights the latest products and trends that are dictating the future of the HVACR, hydronics and plumbing industries. We’re on the exhibition floor (Booth 896) showcasing our innovative HVAC solutions that are not only improving consumers’ lives but boosting contractors’ profitability.

Innovative technologies are just one piece of the HVAC business puzzle. Comfortech also hosts educational sessions that equip contractors with the sales tools and industry knowledge needed to thrive in the business environment. “The Road to Wow More Customers” session, among others, focuses on effective ways to reach and attract customers. Other sessions will provide insight on new codes and regulations that are changing the HVAC landscape. Kevin Miskewicz, our senior manager – commercial marketing, will participate in a panel at 9 a.m. on September 17 alongside contractor Zack Mitchell of Westland Heating and Air Conditioning. “Opportunities with VRF Systems” will focus on the strengths, capabilities and misconceptions of using Variable Refrigerant Flow technology in residential and light commercial applications.

Jim Morris, athlete, author and inspiration for the Disney blockbuster movie “The Rookie,” and marketing guru Kelly McDonald will deliver the keynote speeches. Jim will discuss the importance of being a leader and a follower. Kelly will share the importance of differentiating from the “sea of sameness” in today’s crowded marketplace.

Project Profile: Grand Lake Mental Health Center

Economy was a big concern for Grand Lake Mental Health Center, Inc. (GLMHC) when it decided to transform a 20,000-square-foot bar and dance club into its eighth clinic in northeast Oklahoma. The challenge was finding an HVAC system that could provide the patient privacy and comfort essential to health and wellness facilities and deliver cost savings. Our R2-Series VRF system was the obvious solution.

“A risk in a therapeutic environment, where return air systems are tied together, is that voices carry,” says Larry Smith, GLMHC’s chief operating officer. The minimal ductwork of our system allows for privacy. The technology is zoned to optimize both comfort and cost savings, allowing GLMHC to control the temperatures throughout the facility based on the activity in each area. Patients undergoing exams in one part of the facility can be kept warm while patients working out can be kept cool. The system is also able to keep the on-site pharmacy’s medicine cool, despite the surrounding heat-producing equipment. Any area not in use can be shut off entirely to avoid unneeded cooling and heating.

Read the full case study to learn why Smith says our system is “the ideal design for integrated care.”

Project Profile: M Station Apartments

Foundation Communities is a nonprofit organization dedicated to building sustainable and affordable homes for low- to moderate-income families in Austin, Texas. The M Station community is a result of this effort.

Architect Sunshine Mathon, LEED AP and director of design and development for Foundation Communities, designed M Station with an aggressive green building goal of LEED® Platinum certification. A vital component to meeting this goal was our VRF technology.

Mathon selected our R2-Series heat pump systems for the job. Conventional systems would have required 150 compressors for M Station’s 150 apartments – only 19 of our outdoor units were needed. Occupant comfort was the utmost importance. Our systems deliver best-in-class climate control for the tenants year-round.

M Station ultimately exceeded the certification requirements by more than 25 points. To learn more about how our VRF technology helped, click here.

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.
