Air Northwest, founded by Bonneville Power Administration and Pacific Northwest public utilities, is the premier resource for HVAC energy efficiency information in the Northwest. Participants in this network of HVAC professionals are provided the latest information about commercial HVAC best practices and utility incentives for energy efficient technologies, resulting in higher levels of customer service and energy efficiency expertise throughout the Northwest. This presentation discusses detailed results of the Air Northwest industry input report on commercial Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) sales and installation. The research consisted of an online survey, followed by more detailed phone interviews with VRF professionals, including: engineers, contractors, distributors, and manufacturer representatives. The results of the surveys and interviews identified trends relating to barriers, savings, market, non-energy benefits, costs, and other lessons learned.
