Criteria for Evaluation: Select-Service Hotel Indoor Air Quality
Demand for fresh air, or makeup air, in hotel guestrooms is driven by several imperatives: the necessity for thermal comfort, improved indoor air quality, and building code compliance. Because hospitality is a service industry and hotel guests spend much of their time indoors, thermal comfort and IAQ are especially consequential. When done correctly, introducing fresh air into hotel guestrooms results in healthier IAQ, fewer airborne pathogens, and a lower risk of sick building syndrome.

Room Air Conditioner Improves Ventilation in Emory University Dorm
Emory University is the first campus in the United States to install a new energy-saving air conditioning technology in a dormitory. The energy-efficient inverter-driven PTAC is unique in the way in which it circulates fresh air into each dorm room. Proper ventilation is critical to comfort and humidity control, as well as reducing risks from toxins and microorganisms.Click here to read the complete case study.
Inverter Air Conditioner Cuts Energy Use in Atlanta Highrise
The Friedrich® VRP™ Vertical Packaged VRF system was featured in a new Eneref Report promoting best-in-class HVAC technology as part of Eneref Insitute’s “Cool Room Cool Earth” Campaign. Friedrich Vertical Packaged VRF Units were installed in an Atlanta highrise and won praise from building occupants for cooling and comfort. According to the engineering firm that oversaw the HVAC renovation the Friedrich VRP units were also chosen by the building’s design team because of the considerable amount of fresh air the VRP brought into the building.

Bison Shed Into a House
This project highlights the trials the “You Can’t Turn That Into A House” team faced as they welded a steel bison shed and upended an old container to create a light-filled, beautiful two-story home.
This bison shed conversion called for an exceptional cooling and heating solution. Friedrich saved the day with a state-of-the-art ductless system. With the ability to run off a generator and deliver efficient, powerful cooling and heating, Friedrich’s system promises to provide year-round comfort for the family to enjoy their ingenious new house.
