Dallas training facility touts live hands-on curriculum and technology demonstrations led by VRF industry experts

MILWAUKEE – July 15, 2015 – Johnson Controls recently unveiled its new variable refrigerant flow training facility in Dallas, Texas. The 12,600 square-foot education center helps contractors and sales professionals deliver world-class VRF services through a multi-day training program featuring live, in-class demonstrations and application discussions.

Training center participants will learn how to design, install and service the Johnson Controls VRF systems, which were unveiled at the 2015 International Air-Conditioning, Heating, Refrigerating (AHR) Expo earlier this year. The ductless and modular HVAC solution heats and cools multiple building zones to increase energy savings, improve occupant comfort, and lower construction costs.

“An exceptional VRF product is only as good as the education and support provided to those that design and install VRF in buildings around the world,” said Justin Patrick, vice president and general manager of VRF and ductless solutions, Johnson Controls “Even the best contractors in the industry know that heating and cooling strategies are not one-size-fits-all. That’s why we developed robust VRF curriculum that’s delivered in a world-class learning environment by proven industry experts.”

Johnson Controls VRF features Hitachi’s high-efficiency compressors and is complemented by energy modeling and selection tools to measure and compare VRF to other HVAC technologies. For more information, visit
