Benefits of VRF Systems
Variable Refrigerant Flow system delivers refrigerant at exact amounts and variable rates to space that requires it; that’s what makes VRF systems different than the other HVACs. VRF air conditioning systems meet the cooling and heating needs of any building with increased efficiency and precision. But, does this superior technology cost more? Contrary to popular belief, superior actually means cheaper. You might have to pay for the VRF more compared to other HVAC systems, but your bills will be significantly lowers. VRF system uses an orbiting scroll to maximize the process and to operate with greater efficiency compared to conventional HVAC units which translates to savings of house owners.
Conventional HVAC units might be the right choice for your building, but only if a property requires 100% of air conditioning systems. The reality is quite different: no building requires the total capacity of HVAC and therefore you’re wasting energy and money. VRF air conditioning system adjusts to cooling and heating requirements for each space; it runs at reduced speeds, thus saving money and energy.
The engineering and architectural community is adopting a well balanced design approach with taking in account things such as water and energy consumption, maintenance and repair costs, environmental impact etc. VRF air conditioning helps achieve points for modern sustainability programs.
VRF air conditioning system contains small pipes and it uses about half of the ceiling space required for common HVAC units. This space saving allows greater architectural freedom. VRF systems won’t get in the way of interior or exterior design: instead of duct-work, there are smaller equipment size and refrigerant pipes.
VRF air conditioning is the right choice no matter if you’re using it for high-rise building or a single, small office.
Many people have problems to concentrate while air conditioning systems work. With VRF system, you can sleep and without irritable noises and distractions. Outdoor and indoor units work so quietly that you can place them just about anywhere and that gives you more flexibility on how to use your outdoor and indoor space. You can put an outdoor unit directly under a window, while indoor units are ideal in environments requiring minimum disruption like libraries, schools, hospitals etc. For additional sound level control, many VRF systems have a night quiet modes which limit fan speed during off-peak periods.
VRF air conditioning with its zoned structure doesn’t recirculate air into other zones. This is especially important for medical institutions, laboratories, as well as real estates since it reduces the spread of allergens and airborne contaminants.
VRF systems have been used since the 1980’s, but only in Japan and nowadays they are the main air conditioning option in midsize office buildings and large commercial properties out there. What about you? Do you think it would be wise to turn to this efficient, money-saving solution? Having in mind all the above mentioned benefits and advantages of VRF systems, they are the best possible air conditioning products that are currently available at AC market.
