YANMAR VRF Featured in Energy Solutions for Commercial Buildings Magazine


YANMAR America’s VRF system installation at Pike Road School in Pike Road, Alabama was recently featured in the Energy Solutions for Commercial Buildings magazine article “Just Chilling.” The article highlights the installation at the historic school, as well as YANMAR’s natural gas VRF technology. It also discusses the importance of working with the local utility; in the case of Pike Road School, YANMAR partnered with Spire Energy to reduce customer costs.

“By lowering the school’s overall peak power demand and power consumption, the natural gas heat pumps help Pike Road Middle School reduce the cost of the electric bill on an annual basis,” said Joshua Vick, commercial business development representative, Spire Energy. “Combined with the stable, low cost of natural gas, the school experiences an overall reduction in energy cost while reducing its dependency on the power grid.”
