LinkedIn’s recently renovated office space is a prime example of a beautiful, functional and energy efficient building. One of its highlights is their state-of-the-art HVAC system.

“Our ground-breaking HVAC system is made of all electric heat pumps with heat recovery, variable refrigerant flow and a dedicated outside air system. The heat pumps on the roof can shoot hot and cold refrigerants to every single fan coil unit. That means you can have one room in the building that you’re heating while another one is cooling.”
