While a conventional direct expansion (DX) split system AC is simple to install, operate, and repair with thermostat controls, low initial costs, and individual metering, the system has evolved. Conventional DX split systems are sized to meet maximum heating and cooling loads, lack redundancy, and have multiple compressors to maintain; however, advancements in air conditioning technology have resulted in Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF/VRV) systems, giving developers and owners an option for greater efficiency and sustainability in heating and air conditioning.

We live in a world that relies on various wireless technologies to communicate with one another. For the general consumer, infrastructure elements such as strong cellular, radio, and Wi-Fi signals have moved beyond being a luxury into a matter of safety and security. Radio and cellular signals are often weakened in large buildings and other venues due to a variety of factors, such as radio frequency interference, low-emissivity glass, concrete, and other building materials. These obstacles create areas within the […]
The Health and Wellness industry has seen steady growth over the past five years, and that growth is forecast to continue for the foreseeable future. Health and Wellness focus on the complete well-being of the body, mind, and spirit. People are naturally drawn to products and services that make them feel like they’re doing something good for themselves, and this market, which is currently valued at $4.5 trillion, proves they are willing to pay for it.
