What is the Difference Between VRF and VRV Air Conditioning?

Finding the right air conditioning system for your new building can be challenging. There are several available systems, and all the systems have their own benefits. A VRV (variable refrigerant volume) and VRF (variable refrigerant flow) air conditioning system is hyper-efficient and can effectively cool an entire building fast. But what is the difference between VRV and VRF? Let's dive in a little deeper to understand how a VRV and VRF system differ, and learn the many benefits to this technology.

Sustainable Stormwater Management in Urban Settings

Excess stormwater is a longstanding problem many urban settings encounter. Typical drainage systems can become overrun in times of heavy rain, and existing infrastructure systems are starting to reach the end of their lifespan. New, sustainable designs and implementation can not only help alleviate current stormwater management problems, but can help create a better and often cheaper solution for cities.

How Does Wind Power Create Electricity?

A wind turbine consists of two or three giant blades that look like propellers attached to a rotor. The rotor is attached to a main shaft, which is then connected to a generator. When the wind blows, the large blades begin to spin. The rotational movement transfers to the shaft, which also spins. This transfers to the generator, which creates electricity.
