This fall we have several new tenant sub-metering projects unfolding in Nova Scotia. The first is the installation is at the Vüze - the new name for the renovated Fenwick Towers in Halifax which is the tallest building east of Montreal. Here we have supplied our new line of potable water pulse meters, high frequency pulse flow meters and supply & return temperature sensors all tied into our innovative tenant sub-metering thermostat. Once the project is completed there will be approximately 300 units networked to our central data logging panel and mirrored to a cloud server for real-time and historical access to tenant water and heat utilization.

Also underway is the 109 apartment unit installation at Velo on 2300 Gottingen Street in Halifax. This building will be heated and cooled using our full product mix of air to water heat pumps, fan coils and tenant sub-metering systems. The photos below show how our potable pulse water meters are being installed along with our high frequency pulse flow meters and temperature sensors used for BTU metering in both heating and cooling modes.

Back in March of this year we installed a centralized version of our tenant sub-metering system at Q-Lofts on 5662 Roberts Street in Halifax. This 72 unit condo development had been built with potable water meters and flow meters pre-installed and home-run to a central closet. We therefore designed a pulse and flow metering panel which is able to record water and thermal energy consumption for every unit.

With increased levels of interest in our unique Tandem DX2W-3 modular splits we thought it would be a good idea to show you what a mid-sized residential installation looks like. This 7,700 SF home is located in Paradise, NL and features hydronic floor heating throughout along with a central forced-air system for cooling. The installation [...]
This summer also saw the installation of our commercial products in a 48 unit apartment building in Wolfville, Nova Scotia. This installation used three of our tandem 20 ton DX2W-3 modules connected to six 10 ton heat pumps outside. Water is heated or chilled by the heat pumps and stored in three 200 gallon buffer tanks [...]
This summer saw the installation of our products in a 72 unit condo development in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Three of our 20 ton tandem DX2W-3 air to water modules were connected to six 10 ton heat pumps outside over the underground parking garage deck and three 200 gallon buffer tanks. The hydronic design offers both [...]
We're glad to announce that the first DX2W-3 Modules started shipping earlier this month. Commercial modules are now available in 10 and 20 ton configurations and are designed to connect to conventional 10 ton outdoor heat pump units. We can sell the indoor split modules by themselves or bundle them with a matched US made [...]
With the recent release of our commercial DX2W-3 modules we began using multiple heat exchangers in one cabinet as a means of achieving higher capacities. When doing this we have the option to pipe the refrigerant using one or two refrigeration circuits - a practice commonly used in commercial air handlers. When matching one of [...]
Many of you have been contacting us for details on how our new Tandem & Commercial DX2W-3 Modules are coming along. We're glad to report that performance testing is almost complete and that the new models will be the first in the world to come with integrated electronic refrigerant charging controls which tell you when [...]
With the surge of interest from the USA over the last six months we decided it was time to upgrade our website and offer more details & suggested pricing on all our commercialized products. On-line ordering is available to dealers & distributors but you'll need to contact us and create an account before you can [...]
