In Long Island's West Islip Beach Street Middle School, the Fujitsu AIRSTAGE VU-V system was successfully installed under the guidance of HVAC Department Director Chris Crean from Wales Darby. This modern VRF technology replaced inefficient window shakers, providing a more energy-efficient and flexible solution for this commercial application. The installation was carried out by Commercial Instrumentation Services (CIS) from Deer Park, NY, while Sid Harvey's Medford Branch, represented by store manager Chris Kelley, served as the Distributor. A total of 8 Fujitsu VRF systems, including 6 VU-V systems and 1 JIII system, were installed, utilizing over 40 indoor evaporators to complete the project.
CIS is set to continue this successful installation at the 2nd West Islip Udall Road Middle School starting in early August.
Wales Darby recently concluded the highly successful "RIELLO Run" Product Roadshow. The two-week mobile product showcase, in collaboration with RIELLO North America, embarked on a journey across New York and New Jersey. Led by North East Regional Sales Manager Larry Whalen, the team traveled in a van specially outfitted with a range of products for demonstration.
The primary objective of the RIELLO Run was to engage with Engineering and Architecture firms, initiating conversations on commercial heating and cooling system solutions. The showcase highlighted the seamless integration of components into existing or retrofit systems, emphasizing the features, benefits, and maintenance aspects of the products.
Among the standout offerings was the RIELLO Boiler Array V2.5, a pre-packaged boiler plant that sets a new industry standard for efficiency, redundancy, and reliability. This cutting-edge solution garnered significant attention and appreciation from the attendees. Additionally, the showcase featured high-efficiency electric boilers from Electro Industries, venting systems from Centrotherm, and pump systems from Taco Comfort Solutions. These high-efficiency products showcased the potential for integration within commercial buildings, allowing for comprehensive system optimization and electrification solutions.
During the roadshow, Larry Whalen and the Wales Darby commercial/engineering team actively engaged with the attendees. They answered questions, facilitated Q&A sessions, and provided detailed explanations of the products on display. To further enhance the experience, breakfast or lunch was served, and a few giveaways were distributed. Literature highlighting the showcased products was also made available, ensuring that engineers and architects could take valuable information back to their workplaces. It is hoped that this knowledge will contribute to the Spec Bid process for new building projects or retrofit solutions.
The RIELLO Run Product Roadshow proved to be an informative and successful endeavor. With over 20 locations visited within the two-week span, Wales Darby and RIELLO North America effectively disseminated crucial information and fostered meaningful conversations with industry professionals. This collaborative effort has undoubtedly created new opportunities and strengthened Wales Darby's position as a leading provider of HVAC, Hydronics, and Plumbing equipment.
