Carrier Enterprise is part of the largest HVAC Distribution network in North America. They sell and distributes Carrier, Bryant and Payne residential and light commercial Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) products, parts and supplies throughout the United States, Latin America and Caribbean utilizing 110 locations in 20 states and Puerto Rico. Carrier Enterprise Florida is one of the most important regions for the company.
This strategic allied will give a boost to our product and brand. Feel free to visit any of the locations listed in our Where to buy page to know where your OneZone Single.
Business is good. We are growing faster than expected and we started to run out of space. This is the reason why we decided to move to the heart of Miami, Florida.
Starting on July 1st 2016, OneZone will operate from 175 sw 7th (Suite 2306), Miami.
Brickell is the US’ fastest growing metropolis. Just a few miles away from Miami’s beautiful beaches, it is definitely the heart of financial, residential, and soon commercial center.
This new and more convenient location will strengthen our business relationships with clients and vendors.
Thank you to our friends from HVAC Refrigeration Daily for including the following article in its January 2016 publication regarding on how to improve VRF through zoning.
How VRF can change our world
Since VRF technology appeared in 1982 the HVAC market changed forever. VRF is the best alternative to traditional AC systems. However, market penetration of VRF systems in the US has been slow and minor in comparison to Europe and Asia where this technology is widely used today. The question is: why hasn’t VRF penetrated the US market in the same level as it has in other important markets? The answer is simple; the main motivation to install VRF systems is energy efficiency.
In the US, we are significantly less conscious with our energy consumption. Our culture driven by consumerism has made us a less aware country than others in what energy consumption refers. When looking at other advanced economies, our energy consumption almost doubles theirs. According to the World Bank data, in 2013, the electricity consumption in America was 13,394 kWh per capita. In Japan, it was 8,337 kWh per capita, and in the UK 5,701 kWh per capita.
Fortunately, in the last few years the green movement has taken a good momentum in America. The third most populated country in the world is becoming more aware about energy efficiency. The Air Conditioning industry, as one of the biggest energy consumers in the country and the world, is a big part of this momentum. Capacity and material overuse, non-accurate design, and oversizing are very common issues when installing Air Conditioning systems. With these problems, energy consumption increases, and consumer’s budgets decreases.
VRF systems are at least 20% more efficient than regular air conditioning systems. The variable speed compressor lets the unit works under partial load, when typical systems work under maximum capacity most of the time. VRF, as the state-of-the-art technology, improves these installations, achieving energy efficiency, while increasing comfort and health. Nerveless, some issues may arise when installing VRF, such as first costs and compliance of ASHRAE 15.
There is a way to improve VRF installations. Proven in Europe for many years, adding a zoning system with perfect communication with the indoor VRF unit makes the installation not only more efficient, but also more affordable. This communication occurs through a small device called communications gateway, which was developed by Airzone years ago in collaboration with the most recognized VRF manufacturers (Mitsubishi, Daikin, LG, Toshiba, Fujitsu, Samsung, Panasonic, Hitachi…).
By using this zoning system with communication gateway we can adapt an installation with many individual indoor units, to an installation with a more adjusted number of indoor units. This means that the savings in initial costs increase by a considerable number; we also need less piping, water drainage, electrical points…
Through the gateway the system is able to get a better understanding of the installation demands and requirements, adapting the energy consumption to the real demands of the installation. It also controls the fan speed, set-point temperature, and operation mode.
If we get more mechanical contractors to give a chance to VRF zoning solutions, the amount of energy we would save in Air Conditioning would be enormous. If we make VRF technology more affordable and efficient, we’ll be refining the way we use our energy, reducing our bills, improving our installations, and moving to the next generation in Air Conditioning.
Thank you to all the engineers, installers, contractors, wholesalers, distributors, managers, and business owners who took the time to stop by our booth to meet our systems.
Our innovations called special interest. Particularly our pioneering smart thermostat for VRF: Aidoo, which will be available in the US very soon.
From Monday Jan 25th to Wednesday Jan 27th more than 60,000 people visited the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando to participate in the most important event of the year in the HVAC industry.
Most exhibitors planed to present new or upgraded products, systems, and technologies on the Expo floor. However, we were acknowledged by most of our visitors, as one of the only exhibitors who actually complied with this premise.
This success encourages us to keep materializing new and fresh ideas, looking forward to see you again next year in Vegas. Thank you!
Check out some pictures from the event.
The World’s largest HVACR marketplace will take place again this upcoming January. This time, the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando will be the host for this magnificent event.
Once again the OneZone team will be exhibiting our systems in the AHR Expo. Last year in Chicago we released for the first time our system IB32, now known as OneZone VRF. This year, we will have an amazing showcase where we will display both OneZone Single and OneZone VRF, and a new surprise product that will be revealed during the Expo.
The 2015 AHR Expo was a total success recording the record of the best-attended event ever held in the city of Chicago. With over 61,000 attendees and 42,000 visitors. We are sure that the upcoming Expo won’t be an exception. We have huge expectations about this event that you cannot miss.
Please stop by our booth #1192 where we’ll be showing our systems with our group of Engineers and experts. We will have gifts, raffles, and many other surprises.

Mr. Fernandez explained the advantages of VRF technology, compared with different types of systems, and demonstrated how zoning can improve the efficiency of a VRF installation.
He ended up the presentation comparing a standard VRF installation with that same installation with a zoning control. “The perfect solution is to find the Golden Mean with the state-of-the-art VRF Technology” he stated.
Friolin Panama is the biggest distributor in Panama with 10 different stores, and 2 more in the way. Founded in 1971, Friolin is a benchmark in the HVAC business in Panama and Central America.
OneZone Single will start with a pilot in 2 stores. We are planning to be in the other 8 stores by the end of the year.
