Variable Refrigerant Flow: Energy Efficiency and Comfort Control

VRF (variable refrigerant flow) technology is rapidly growing here in North America in both residential and commercial applications. HVAC technology developed in Japan in the 1980s and highly popular throughout Europe and Asia, these ductless systems can simultaneously heat and cool separate spaces in the same building. Main driving factors for choosing VRF are increased energy efficiency, flexibility, on-demand comfort control, and quiet operation.
VRF systems work by moving refrigerant to individual zones where temperatures can be precisely controlled, resulting significant energy savings. Various industry statistics show that VRF systems are 25%-55% more efficient than traditional systems. By eliminating ductwork, large fans, chillers, boilers, and pumps, space-saving VRF systems allow for better aesthetics and design flexibility, making them a popular choice in retrofit and renovation applications. Fewer system components means lower equipment costs, and installation is easier and less expensive. VRF requires significantly less maintenance than other systems, with only filter changes required, and need for retro-commissioning is eliminated as the logic is built into the system.
