Carrier Enterprise at Redskins Stadium | Quad-Zone Ductless HVAC System

Carrier Enterprise at Redskins Stadium

Carrier Enterprise and the Washington Redskins teamed up to provide added comfort and convenience to fans and players visiting FedExField. As part of the Redskins organization’s dedication to green initiatives and improving the fan experience, the team recently upgraded to the Carrier Quad-Zone ductless HVAC system.

About Redskins FedExField

Like all NFL stadiums, FedExField is designed to be comfortable and safe for both fans and players; the Redskins organization’s home stadium has taken things one step further and focused on sustainability as well. The new ductless Carrier system joins other recent updates and innovations designed to improve the stadium’s eco-friendliness and sustainability. Recent FedExField updates and recognition include:

Carrier Quad-Zone Ductless System

The Carrier Ductless Quad-Zone HVAC system was chosen for FedExField to provide an improved visitor experience and to further the team’s comfort initiatives. Some benefits of the newly installed system include:

  • Greatly reduced noise levels; the ductless system has a noise level of only 27 decibels; normal conversation is generally around 60 decibels. The decreased noise should allow fans to converse, compare strategy and socialize between plays.
  • Unique inverter technology; this Carrier system ensures that the stadium is comforted while maximizing efficiency and allowing for savings of both energy and money.
  • Green operation; the new ductless system ensures that the stadium operates at maximum efficiency, without sacrificing comfort or creating noise.
  • Maximum comfort; for staff, players and fans, the new system can keep the stadium comfortable in even extreme conditions.

Meet Carrier Côr

The newest and smartest thermostat just got even better. Carrier’s new Côr thermostat has been designed to not only help users conserve energy and keep a steady level of comfort at home, it also seamlessly integrates with Amazon’s interactive Echo device. Côr is able to work with other appliances in the home, secure the perimeter and even send alerts if an alarm is triggered while no one is home. This integration offers homeowners unsurpassed control over their home comfort, safety and entertainment and ushers in a new era of convenience for the savvy homeowner.

Voice Control Comfort, Safety and Entertainment

Home automation used to mean comfort, music or entertainment at the touch of a button; Amazon’s new Alexa technology takes this convenience one step further, with full device control. The retail giant has invested heavily in Alexa enabled devices, and the first generation of devices, the Amazon Echo, rolled out to favorable reviews and reception earlier this year. Echo allows the homeowner to fully control all integrated devices simply by speaking a command. Voice recognition allows the Echo to respond by playing music, searching the web or even adjusting appliances in the home.

Carrier’s Côr hub has been designed to integrate with Amazon Alexa technology and the Echo is able to adjust the home settings when asked; no more fiddling with the temperature, turning the fan on or off or trying to get things just right. The Côr thermostat is already designed with ease and energy efficiency in mind; the voice recognition capabilities of this device further simplifies home comfort for consumers and end users. This innovative device can also help monitor smoke detectors, manage access to the home and even allow users to control settings and get peace of mind when they are away.

Benefits to Installers

Offering customers the Côr smart home system allows you to offer ancillary services ranging from home security to emergency preparedness, without having to invest heavily in extra training or supplies.  The Côr hub has everything you need to expand your offerings and provide your customers with fully integrated smart home technology; you won’t have to worry about compatibility or making multiple systems work together. Whether you are helping a tech savvy customer who knows they want a fully functional smart home or educating a less tech-friendly client on the benefits of automation, the Côr system can help.

Benefits to End Users

For the homeowner, the Côr hub creates the ability to check in from any mobile device with an Internet connection. Forget to turn the lights off or the temperature down? Do it from your phone, even if you are across town or across the country. Worried about the security of a vacation home or second property? Côr can alert you to any issues with the property and allow you to respond instantly, even if you are not at the location at the time. Côr’s ability to integrate with entertainment, child monitoring devices, pet devices and smart appliances puts the power of all these devices in one place. The ability to work with Amazon’s Echo also means the homeowner does not have to hunt for a remote to adjust Côr or receive important information.

Offering the next generation of smart home technology to your current users gives you one more way to serve them and connect; this new technology can also help expand your market to a whole new generation of tech savvy homeowners. Contact us to learn more about Côr and its benefits for both your business and the end user.

As more businesses realize the benefits that VRF has to offer, it is slowly gaining ground in the United States.
