Operational efficiency is vital to your employees’ comfort and your wallet. VRF systems offer completely independent zone control, which in turn provides greater flexibility of controlled temperature and humidity, and also saves energy.
The condensing unit (the outdoor part) of VRF systems accurately identifies the heating or cooling demand of each comfort zone and pumps the precise amount of refrigerant needed to each air handling (indoor) unit (this is why these air conditioning and heating machines are called VRF systems). This precise flow reduces cold and hot spots and humidity problems, and provides the consistent comfort that will help promote employee productivity.
Extremely quiet operation
Typically, the louder the outdoor unit, the more “unhappy” neighbors you will have, which at some point may result in a dispute. VRF systems are extremely quiet, delivering the same powerful effects. Smaller air handlers are quieter than those of a large central unit with unsightly ductwork. No indoor noise means less chances of disrupting business.
One of the best benefits of VRF systems is they offer energy efficiency by supplying only the precise amount of refrigerant needed to cool or heat a room under a room’s current condition. This means half of the time these systems are running at a lower capacity. There is also ability to capture heat as the system cools one room, and pass this heat to other room(s) in the building, which should be heated.
Simultaneous heating and cooling
Another attractive benefit of VRF systems is that they can cool and heat simultaneously. VRF systems capture heat while it cools and can redistribute this heat to an area that needs heat. Often different rooms have different heating and cooling needs. Your computer room likely will require cooler temperatures than your offices. Offices facing south, and therefore having more sun exposure would need more cooling than other offices facing east or north. VRF systems “smartly” redistribute energy in accordance to immediate heating or cooling demands.
This is a great benefit that allows to achieve perfect climate in virtually any circumstances. Conference rooms, hallways, offices, lunch rooms – all need different approach. Central air conditioning systems with bulky ductwork cannot possibly achieve necessary cooling and heating needs without rooms being too cold or too hot.
VRF systems various controls allow many useful benefits, like using your mobile device to set temperature settings in different zones. If you’re running a commercial office, or even a building, you may use a building management software that allows full control of all units in the building. Smart technology definitely is one of the best benefits. Besides supplying the precise amount of refrigerant to each indoor unit based on operating necessity, VRF systems also control the operation and provide maintenance or repair notification’s, which in turn helps to keep system operation at its best.
There is no reason to argue that one of the important benefits of VRF systems is that they tend to break down less frequently. It is clear that no one wants to be without air conditioning during hot days or without heat in winter. This is because VRF systems are designed to run only when needed and under partial load conditions. Consequently - less repairs needed, which saves money and downtime.
