I just recently started looking into odd types of heating as well as cooling systems, however i looked into gas furnaces, boilers, heat pumps as well as air conditioners but wanted something more compact.
- I came across Variable Refrigerant Flow or VRF systems, then although I’d never heard of this style of equipment, the technology has particularly been around for decades, over the last five years, it has become changingly popular in large cities where space is at a premium, however vRF systems use outdoor condenser units with small air handlers that can be independently controlled; The name refers to the equipment’s ability to control the amount of refrigerant flowing to each of these small air handlers.
It’s capable of providing cooling as well as heating as well as can even offer both simultaneously in odd areas of the house. One of the numerous benefits of a VRF plan is energy efficiency. It is designed to supply exactly the amount of conditioned air needed for the new demands, allowing it to run less often as well as at lower capacity. It’s also capable of capturing heat from the cooling process as well as reusing in other areas that require heating. The set up of a VRF plan puts the condensing component outside, keeping noise to a minimum. The indoor air handlers are particularly small as well as offer much quieter operation than a traditional air conditioner or heater. I love that I can have a/c in the living room while heating the upstairs home offices. The system’s compressor detects the exact requirements of each zone as well as delivers the perceived amount of refrigerant needed to maintain ideal comfort. As a result each space is regularly the right temperature, with no warm or freezing spots. It also helps with excess humidity.
