GABLES PARK TOWER:
THINGS OFF VRF REDUCED THE NUMBER OF CONDENSING UNITS FROM 250 TO
Gables Park Tower implemented our first building-wide Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) HVAC system and represents 400 tons of cooling on all residential apartment homes and common area space. With the VRF we are able to reduce the number of condensing units from 250 to 19. Design modeling predicted energy reduction of 30-40% in consumption compared to unitary equipment. This also results in greater control of the building's interior temperature by the building's occupants.
REDUCTION IN ENERGY CONSUMPTION
â€œDXS and Daikin are excited to be a part of Gables Park Tower in Austin, TX. This project is the first high-end high rise multifamily community in Texas to implement the premium energy efficiency Variable Refrigerant Flow technology. Since Gables made the decision to pursue the use of new technology, several other high rise developments have followed suit. Daikin and DXS congratulate Gables for leading the way!â€? -DXS/Daikin
