Johnson Controls opens VRF training centre
USA: Johnson Controls has unveiled a new training facility in Dallas, Texas, focused on VRF air conditioning.
With VRF technology expected to challenge traditional ducted systems in the US, the 12,600ft² centre is designed to help contractors understand and deliver VRF services through a multi-day training programme featuring live, in-class demonstrations and application discussions.
Participants will learn how to design, install and service the Johnson Controls VRF systems, which were unveiled at this year’s AHR.
“An exceptional VRF product is only as good as the education and support provided to those that design and install VRF in buildings around the world,” said Justin Patrick, vice president and general manager of VRF and ductless solutions, Johnson Controls “Even the best contractors in the industry know that heating and cooling strategies are not one-size-fits-all. That’s why we developed robust VRF curriculum that’s delivered in a world-class learning environment by proven industry experts.”
Johnson Controls VRF features Hitachi’s high-efficiency compressors and is complemented by energy modelling and selection tools to measure and compare VRF to other HVAC technologies.
