I just recently started looking into weird types of heating plus cooling systems, but i looked into oil furnaces, boilers, heat pumps plus a/cs but wanted something more compact.
I came across Variable Refrigerant Flow or VRF systems.
Although I’d never heard of this type of equipment, the technology has actually been around for decades, then over the last more than four years, it has become increasingly popular in big cities where space is at a premium, and vRF systems use outdoor condenser units with small air handlers that can be independently controlled, then 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 & heating plus can even offer both simultaneously in weird areas of the house. One of the numerous benefits of a VRF system is energy efficiency. It is designed to supply exactly the amount of conditioned air needed for the modern demands, allowing it to run less often plus at lower capacity. It’s also capable of capturing heat from the cooling process plus reusing in other areas that require heating. The set up of a VRF system puts the condensing device outside, keeping noise to a minimum. The indoor air handlers are undoubtedly small plus offer much quieter operation than a traditional a/c or heater. I care about that I can have a/c in the dining room while heating the upstairs dining rooms. The system’s compressor detects the exact requirements of each zone plus delivers the perceived amount of refrigerant needed to maintain ideal comfort. As a result each space is consistently the right temperature, with no hot or freezing spots. It also helps with excess humidity.
