Clients Can Benefit from VRF Systems for Trading Floors

Building and maintaining a trading floor is expensive for financial firms. Should companies choose to spend more money by installing Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) systems?

Greg Ewing explains both sides in his article “Understand the Pros and Cons of VRFs for Trading Floors” for Building Operating Management magazine. “Possibly the greatest benefit of a VRF for a trading floor is its ability to deliver supplemental cooling with minor infrastructure changes/additions,” Ewing writes. At the same time, he points out, “a VRF can cost anywhere from 10 to 15 percent more than a traditional HVAC system.”

Two other parts to this piece by Ewing are “Is a VRF Right for Your Trading Floor Cooling Needs?” and “Case Study: NYC Trading Floor Chooses VRF.”
