Powerful, efficient and flexible climate control for larger premises
VRF (or VRV) air conditioning systems connect numerous indoor units to a single or modular outdoor unit (where a number of AC units link together). VRF air con offers high performance with optimum efficiency. It is especially suited to medium and large buildings.
Start with an Outdoor VRF Unit…
A single VRF air conditioning unit will serve up to 50 indoor units. These could be floor, ducted, ceiling, ceiling suspended, wall, air curtain, fresh air and water heating variants.
VRF air conditioners are available with heat pump and heat recovery technology. These air conditioners utilise increased external static pressure (up to 250pa) to provide full flexibility in air conditioning design.
And connect it to Indoor Units
Indoor VRF air conditioning units will often utilise ducts to provide the ultimate in climate control whilst maintaining building aesthetics, even within strict structural confines. Flexibile duct layout means air flow patterns can be customised to suit any application.
Options for cool or warm air distribution include:
- ceiling cassettes
- ceiling ducts and grills
- ceiling suspended units
- wall mounted
- floor standing
- air curtains
Low noise, ultra slim cassette or duct variants are available for applications such as hotels.
Whichever air conditioning option you choose, you can be sure that, at its heart, will beat a highly efficient and flexible VRF unit.
How do VRF air conditioners work?
Inverters respond to the changes in the temperature requirements in an air conditioned space by controlling a variable speed compressor, or multiple compressors of varying capacity. A sophisticated control system switches switches between cooling and heating modes.
More advanced inverter systems allow indoor units to heat or cool independently of others in different zones in the building, providing energy savings when heating and cooling are required at the same time.
