Intuitive and in some cases self-regulated, these heating, cooling, and pump systems are easily monitored and controlled, remotely and in person.
VRP Heat Pump system Friedrich
Using a variable-speed compressor, this system is much quieter than a standard unit as it does not need to fully shut off and on to regulate temperature. Additionally, onboard sensors that monitor compressor speeds offer exceptional humidity control.
A one-of-a-kind duct-free indoor model both heats and cools a space while remaining out of sight. The unit can service multizone systems, and is compatible with outdoor Multi F units to support eight spaces. Users can choose from a variety of images to frame, or add custom art and photographs.
The SCALA2 is an innovative water booster pump suitable for residential buildings with up to three floors and eight taps. There is a built-in sensor that continually monitors water pressure. If pressure drops below a desired level, the pump will kick into overdrive so water is never down to a trickle, all with a noise level as quiet as a dishwasher.
A new, sleek offering from Uponor streamlines the user experience of its typical thermostat, which controls residential hydronic radiant heating systems. The touchscreen system can control both an air sensor and a floor sensor to accurately monitor the temperature in individual spaces and automatically adjust.
City Multi L-Generation Air-Source Outdoor Unit Mitsubishi Electric
Thanks to HexiCoil, a new zinc-aluminum flat-tube heat exchanger developed by Mitsubishi, the L-Generation unit provides superior durability and water-shedding capabilities. Additional enhancements include a 30-percent-smaller footprint and improved vertical separation between indoor units, which allow for greater design flexibility.
“Very long horizontal flues are unusual because smoke wants to go up, so it’s very challenging to keep it from stagnating,” says Davidson, a UB clinical assistant professor of architecture. “Many of the masons we talked to said they couldn’t do a horizontal flue longer than 8 feet.”Rochester, New York's Empire Masonry Heaters could, however. They helped the architects enliven the flue chamber, covering the refractory cement with patterned tiles reminiscent of an intricate mosaic. Their ornamental chamber doubles as a café bench. The kachelofen is known in North America simply as a masonry heater. While its winter-busting abilities are new to Buffalo, it is a centuries-old form of heating in Northern Europe. North America is “a fertile ground for new developments on masonry heater construction,” said the architects of the cheekily-dubbed Cafe Fargo. “It seems also with a widening consciousness about 'green' forms of heating, and rising heating costs, the good old masonry heater is grabbing peoples' interest,” they told AN. At only 880 square feet, their cafe is well-suited to the system. But Davidson and Rafailidis said masonry heating could work in larger spaces, too, but it might require several heaters to evenly heat multiple rooms. Wood-fired systems also need to be constantly monitored. Buffalo takes a degree of pride in its cold and snowy conditions, but if you've warmed up to the radiant heat of Cafe Fargo you may want to drop by—it's still looking for a tenant.
