SUWANEE, Ga. – October 6, 2021 – Maintaining ideal comfort and clean air are critical to the well-being of senior living residents. The right heating, ventilation and air-conditioning system (HVAC) technology can significantly improve resident comfort and wellness while providing sustainable, cost-efficient operation. That’s where Mitsubishi Electric Trane HVAC US
leading supplier of Ductless and Ducted Mini-split and Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) heat-pump and air-conditioning systems and offers additional all-electric product solutions for senior living, including Dedicated Outdoor Air Systems (DOAS), Energy Recovery Ventilation (ERV) systems and advanced commercial hot water heating systems.
These solutions help provide the comfort, wellness and user experience senior living residents want while reducing operational costs and encouraging environmental stewardship.
Modern, flexible solutions from METUS heat and cool without the noise of conventional heating and air conditioning. Systems such as the M-Series or P-Series enable facility managers to customize comfort for different zones including residential units and common spaces. Select VRF indoor units with the 3D i-see Sensor® monitor the number of occupants in a room and adjust temperatures accordingly, making automatic energy-saving operation achievable. METUS indoor units also can be operated independently so residents can manage and control their personal comfort in their own living spaces.
“At Mitsubishi Electric Trane HVAC US, we believe giving senior living residents more control over their heating and air conditioning contributes to their overall happiness and vitality,” says Randall Towb, senior manager, business development, senior living, Mitsubishi Electric Trane HVAC US. “Our goal in serving senior living communities has always been two-fold: to offer customizable comfort for building occupants and to positively affect business growth for operation managers. With VRF technology, we’re able to offer both, allowing everyone to breathe a bit easier.”
METUS systems have INVERTER-driven compressors, so they use only the absolute minimum energy necessary to maintain comfort levels. This technology, applied zone-by-zone, eliminates hot and cold spots and helps maintain a consistent, comfortable temperature. Select METUS CITY MULTI® systems can also heat and cool different zones in a building simultaneously.
Though purpose-built for heating and cooling, METUS VRF zoning systems continuously filter the air within each individual living space, reducing potential cross-contamination between rooms and improving overall air quality for residents. The Lossnay® Energy Recovery Ventilator (ERV) and PremiSys® Dedicated Outdoor Air System (DOAS) are key components for maximizing indoor air quality with VRF systems. Lossnay exhausts indoor air to remove toxins, odors and other potentially harmful contaminants while replacing it with conditioned outside air. By precooling or preheating incoming air with the available energy in the exhaust air, Lossnay can save facilities money by decreasing the load on the HVAC units. The PremiSys rooftop ventilation product lineup is another premier solution, specifically designed to handle 100% outdoor air and is ideal for managing ventilation air in VRF applications. The PremiSys MP Model and MPE Model (with energy recovery) are pre-engineered to provide semi-custom flexibility while maintaining the quality, consistency and value of a standardized product. For advanced hot water systems, METUS will introduce the Heat2O™ Heat Pump Water Heater in the near future. Heat2O uses CO2 refrigerant (R744) with zero ozone depletion potential (ODP) to produce domestic hot water for commercial and industrial applications where hot water demand is high. This benefit is perfect for reducing construction costs in new senior living communities.
