Tarrant County College, LG Air Conditioning Technologies Open New VRF Lab for HVAC/R Students
On Friday, December 6, Tarrant County College and LG Air Conditioning Technologies officials hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony to unveil a new Variable Refrigerant Technology (VRF) lab to educate HVAC contracting students on the benefits of this innovative and growing technology.
Thanks to this new lab, students will learn about duct-free mini-splits and large-scale VRF systems that can provide superior energy efficiency in residential and commercial environments.
LG’s industry-leading single and 3-phase Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) solutions are making major inroads in the United States where the demand for high-performance, flexible HVAC technology continues to grow. LG’s air conditioning systems are designed to minimize efficiency losses found in conventional HVAC systems, provide sustainable energy savings, and offer one of the lowest lifecycle costs of any system on the market today.
The new VFR lab at TCC South will feature the latest in LG equipment including:
- LG Multi™ V S Single- phase Heat Recovery System (5-ton system named “Green Innovation of the Year” by Green Builder);
- LG Multi™ V (IV) – VRF Heat Pump System;
- LG Multi™ V (V) VRF Heat Recovery System.
The HVAC/R Department at TCC South will begin offering VRF and DFS (Duct-Free Split system) courses starting in January 2020. On average, approximately 75 students enroll in the comprehensive HVAC program each semester.
The Center of Excellence in Energy Technology (CEET) – SETC 1410 at Tarrant County College South is located at 5301 Campus Drive, Fort Worth, Texas 76119.
