Webinar: HVAC and Seniors Housing — Reduce Costs and Achieve Value in Senior Living Properties

by Sarah Daniels



On June 15, Seniors Housing Business hosted the webinar “HVAC and Seniors Housing — Reduce Costs and Achieve Value in Senior Living Properties.” Panelists took a deep dive into the benefits of HVAC systems, particularly variable refrigerant flow (VRF) systems, and how they can be implemented in seniors housing communities to save energy and money.

Tune in to hear panelists discuss the following topics and more:

  • How are modern construction, decarbonization techniques and rising energy costs driving the popularity of VRF technology?
  • How do the features of HVAC systems affect building requirements and the total first cost?
  • How can the characteristics of VRF systems enable senior living owners/operators to reduce and avoid costs?
  • How might VRF systems create competitive advantages for building owners, particularly those in the senior housing industry?

Listen to the panel and learn more about VRF systems versus conventional systems, energy savings, design-flexible equipment, indoor unit options and more. It’s never been more important for seniors housing to be able to operate efficiently and implement systems that save money.
