Why Variable Refrigerant Flow?
Variable Refrigerant Flow, or VRF HVAC systems, have been the HVAC system of choice in other parts of the world for quite some time. Over the past 5 to 10 years, VRF HVAC technology has gained popularity and acceptance here in the US for many reasons.
“Installed performance of Variable Refrigerant Flow, VRF systems have proven to yield considerably less energy consumption when compared to conventional HVAC systems to include standard air-to-air heat pumps, packaged RTU, rooftop unit HVAC systems, and chiller/boiler systems.” “Projections are for the use of these system to double within the next 10 years” (the News, “VRF Gaining Mass Appeal in the US”. Publication date: 11/23/2015)
Delivering just the right amount of comfort to every area
Ideal for renovation and retrofit projects, these systems move refrigerant to the zones requiring heating or cooling. They can simultaneously heat some zones and cool others. Zones are single or multiple spaces that are a set temperature and operate independently from other spaces within the same building making them ideal for environments with specific comfort needs.
These systems have fewer components reducing initial equipment costs. Installation labor charges are reduced due to smaller diameter refrigerant lines that are easier to install than long duct runs going through walls in existing buildings. Service costs are reduced in water source applications over systems served by water cooled chillers requiring water treatment. In a word, once installed these systems are simple to operate and provide precise comfort to each space.

- Certified Energy Managers
- Mechanical & Professional Engineers
- Test & Balancing Professionals
- Commissioning Technicians
- Building Controls Integration Technicians
- Technical Audit Managers
With this proprietary program, we help you budget capital for equipment replacement projects instead of appropriating emergency or operating funds repairing or replacing obsolescent equipment. We’ll inventory your assets in order to develop projections that prioritize assets for retro-commissioning, refurbishment or replacement.
Not only does this make sense from a budgetary standpoint, it can actually increase positive cash flow for investments when you consider additional cost savings from rebates, new energy efficiencies and avoiding other unnecessary repairs.
Surveys and Reports
We offer a number of survey options conducted by our service technicians and engineers to help you answer specific questions about your service or equipment, such as:
Is my HVAC maintenance actually being done?
What’s the condition of the equipment in the building we’re about to buy or lease?
How about the condition of our company’s mechanical assets?
How much should I budget to repair or replace my equipment in the coming year?
Enervise HVAC surveys offer the answers for you. We will sit down with your team to determine your needs and recommend a specific survey or report that will help you make informed decisions.
1. HVAC Equipment Inspection Survey
Who would benefit from this survey and report?
- Customers buying or selling property who need to know the condition of mechanical systems
- Property management companies for due diligence to building owners
- Property management companies preparing spaces for new tenants
- Customers requiring detailed information on equipment because of budgetary concerns
What is in the report from the Equipment Inspection Survey?
- Nomenclature, age, size and photo documentation for each piece of equipment
- Roof Map and equipment position

- Executive summary snapshot of all conditions found and recommended repairs/replacements and budget costs
- Maintenance procedures needed
2. Engineering Heat Load and Comfort Audit:
If you are experiencing hot and cold spots in your building, our engineers can data log actual design conditions and run HVAC load calculation along with general review of the drawings to determine a course of action to restore comfort.
3. Start-Up and Commissioning:
If your building has a brand-new unit, we can inspect the equipment as a third party to make sure units were installed properly, started-up by a certified, knowledgeable technician and are operating correctly.
4. Portfolio Energy Benchmarking Report and Energy Audits:
If you want your building to be Energy Star certified or you simply want to reduce your carbon footprint or cut the cost of wasted energy, we can also analyze and assess your systems to deliver recommendations based on sustainability and conservation strategies.
How can you improve your building in three easy steps?
STEP 1 Energy Star Benchmark
We encourage you to compare your building’s energy use against your peers to see if you can avoid utility costs. Our approach includes benchmarking the energy use of your individual buildings utilizing the US EPA’s Energy Star rating system for your type of facility. We then create a baseline and develop strategies that often produce an average energy savings in the range of 5 to 20%.
Our Energy Benchmark report includes:
- Energy Performance from actual utilities usage
- Energy Cost Comparison vs peer building of similar type
- ENERGY STAR Rating – 75 or better is best of class
- Carbon Footprint & Sustainability index
- Recommendations to avoid utility costs
STEP 2 Survey and Capital Planning Guide We conduct an HVAC Equipment Inspection Survey that will provide an in-depth analysis of your existing mechanical equipment, rating condition, budgeting for repairs and maintenance history. In conjunction with providing that survey, we often provide a five-year budget plan. Our financial modeling helps you anticipate when prudent investment in replacement equipment brings value verses repair utilizing your financial criteria.
Also, you can contact one of our experts in order to set up a consultation and help guide you to make the right decision for your situation.
STEP 3 Energy Assessment*
Our team and a Certified Energy Manager (CEM) will walk through your facility or building to:
- Review 24/7 operations
- Measure lighting levels
- Check comfort temperature and carbon dioxide levels
The Energy assessment follows the Level I ASHRAE energy audit process and includes detailed steps that our experts will be happy to address with you during a consultation.
* Fees are waived for Steps 1 and 2. Energy advisory fees may apply for Step 3, an Energy Advisory Assessment.
