Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) or Variable Refrigerant Volume (VRV) air conditioning systems are incredibly energy-efficient means for accurately regulating the temperature in commercial buildings. Most of the time, rooms or areas within a building will need to operate at different temperatures.

Factors Influencing Heating and Cooling Mechanism:
The cooling and heating requirements of these spaces inevitably change throughout the day, usually caused by changes in living spaces, lighting and heat dissipation office equipment, changes in external temperature, and, more importantly, the sun’s position.
The combined effect of these internal and external influences usually means that certain building areas get cool while other areas get warm. VRF or VRV system is required to maintain a constant and comfortable indoor air quality. To know more about the system, consult an expert specializing in ductless air conditioning installation in Brooklyn and Staten Island.
What is VRF or VRV System?
A well-designed VRF/VRV system usually covers an area instead of heating and cooling loads, allowing excess heat to dissipate from cold to hot. The VRF/VRV heat recovery system provides maximum energy efficiency and reaches a SCOP/SEER of 5.0 or higher.
How Does The System Work?
The VRF/VRV outdoor unit provides several indoor units connected through a system of copper pipes with refrigerant. VRF/VRV technology achieves a very high-efficiency level by converting the refrigerant flow into an indoor unit according to the exact requirements of a specific area. This allows precise temperature control and resulting zoned comfort.
Why Do You Need VRF or VRV Air Conditioners?
VRF/VRV air conditioners also offer the benefits of standard flexibility and design. Multiple outdoor units can be combined to increase overall system capacity and increase the likelihood of heat recovery. Indoor units come in a variety of shapes and sizes and are suitable for most applications. The system is also designed to reduce or eliminate installation requirements, making it cheaper and easier to install in tight spaces.
High control capabilities allow users to customize the system and control the local environment without adversely affecting other areas served by the same system. If desired, these controls can be easily integrated into the building’s BMS control system.
Key benefits of VRF/VRV air conditioning systems:
- Highly energy efficient
- Precise temperature control
- Simultaneous heating & cooling
- Heat recovery
- Zoned comfort
- Flexible & modular designs
- Simpler to install
- Sophisticated, easy to use controls
