CITY MULTI® Efficiency Evaluator Aids Commercial Building Specifiers in Selecting Best HVAC System

Mitsubishi Electric US, Inc. Cooling & Heating Division (Mitsubishi Electric) developed a new cloud-based life cycle cost simulator, called the CITY MULTI® Efficiency Evaluator, for commercial facility managers, building owners, engineers, HVAC contractors and architects. This exclusive tool, only available from Mitsubishi Electric, is used to make multiple life cycle cost comparisons for old and new buildings in order to specify the best HVAC system.

This cloud-based application compares Mitsubishi Electric’s Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) systems to other existing or proposed HVAC systems including Variable Air Volume (VAV) systems, water source heat pumps, fan coils and chillers/boilers. It calculates expected whole building energy usages, life cycle costs, maintenance costs and estimated LEED® points for each system using a sophisticated building simulation platform called WeidtSim, developed by The Weidt Group. The Efficiency Evaluator instantly builds full DOE2 simulations using minimal inputs.  This allows commercial equipment specifiers to demonstrate to customers just how the systems stack up.

“With the CITY MULTI Efficiency Evaluator, commercial building specifiers now have a dynamic cloud-based life cycle cost simulation tool at their disposal to target the optimal HVAC system for their project,” said Kevin Miskewicz, senior manager, commercial marketing, Mitsubishi Electric US, Inc. Cooling & Heating Division. “You can now rely on one company to perform a life cycle cost simulation based on the details of your specific building.”

The CITY MULTI Efficiency Evaluator provides a powerful, convincing illustration of operating performance for commercial building owners. It enhances the onsite consultation experience and reinforces why Mitsubishi Electric’s VRF solutions are ideal for a variety of commercial building applications.
