Eneref Publishes Juniper Report Citing VRF Benefits

Notable Benefits of Inverter-Driven VRF Heat Pump Validated in Eneref Report

Eneref Institute “Cool Room, Cool Earth” Campaign Urges Quicker Adoption of Inverter Technologies in Residential and Commercial HVAC Equipment.

WASHINGTON, SEPTEMBER 5, 2020 – Eneref Institute, a leading advocate for sustainable development, has closely examined the results of the installation of variable-refrigerant-flow HVAC units in an Atlanta residential highrise building and has determined that the outcome warrants increased use of inverter-driven air conditioners to mitigate global warming. Eneref’s team of investigators interviewed numerous building occupants, as well as the building’s facility professionals and designers participating in the project, to draw their conclusions.

The building in Midtown Atlanta was among the first of its kind to incorporate an innovative technology that could be used to reduce carbon emissions in highrise buildings throughout the United States. Carbon emissions from air conditioning are a major factor in increasing global climate change. The Eneref Institute “Cool Room, Cool Earth” campaign has brought together a consortium of organizations including municipalities, homebuilders, and manufacturers to encourage greater use of inverter-driven variable-speed air conditioners and heat pumps. Eneref Institute is a research and advocacy organization with initiatives to inspire solutions that promise an earth-friendly economy.

“Limiting global warming will require rapid and far-reaching transitions in energy use,” said Seth Warren Rose, Founding Director of Eneref Institute. “We need to make unprecedented changes to ensure a sustainable and equitable society. Every extra bit of warming matters.”
