What is a VRF system?

VRF systems are the latest heating and cooling tech out there right now. Instead of transferring hot or cold water from zone to zone as a chiller system would do, variable refrigerant flow systems transfer refrigerant, a property which can be used to heat or cool an area. During a typical cooling process run by the system, it can capture and absorb heat from the air in the system so it can then redirect that heat to areas in a facility that need it most.

VRF systems are modular, meaning that they can be strategically placed in key areas of the facility and automatically controlled with a building automation system to ensure that each area within a large facility is conditioned in the most efficient way possible at all times during the day and night.

Benefits of VRF systems

VRF systems allow for greater control of heating and cooling in your facility, down to as minute a level as your facility needs. For larger facilities like hotels which have different rooms heated or cooled at different levels, this amount of control can make a huge difference in total energy consumption. It also does not require major mechanical overhauls to install a system.

The cost to run heating and cooling systems takes up a huge percentage of your utility bill, so optimizing this area can save your organization a lot of money, both in the short and long-term.

What's the difference between a VRF and VRV system?

There’s actually no difference between a VRF and VRV system. Both do exactly the same thing. The only difference is in their names; VRF stands for variable refrigerant flow, whereas VRV stands for variable refrigerant volume. VRV is a special term trademarked by Daiken, a prominent manufacturer in the heating and cooling space. VRF, on the other hand, is the term used for systems not manufactured by Daiken.

Is a VRF system right for your company? Consider these factors

  • One Icon Do you have a large facility? Heating and cooling is much more difficult for your HVAC unit to properly condition the entire facility. VRF systems make the process much easier.
  • Two Icon Do you have a central HVAC unit or split units? Both do not go as in-depth for heating and cooling control as a VRF system, meaning both are not as efficient.
  • Three Icon Does your facility have different temperature needs in different areas? If you have, for example, a cooking area and a customer-facing area, you may want more control over heating and cooling. That's where a VRF system comes into play.
