Back in 1982, Daikin invented the Variable Refrigerant Volume technology, or “VRV,” as it’s commonly known. This quickly turned into being called the “Rolls Royce of the HVAC world” for commercial buildings. Daikin is now bringing this awesome technology into your home to increase efficiency, add flexibility, and improve your home’s overall comfort. This is where the Daikin VRV Life system comes into the picture. In this article, we’ll discuss all of the exciting things that this system has to offer for homeowners here in Albuquerque, NM.
What exactly is VRV technology?
A VRV system usually consists of an outdoor unit connected by refrigerant piping inside to multiple air handlers. These VRV systems combine electronic valves with inverter technology. This allows the system to precisely control the speed of the compressor, as well as the amount of refrigerant flowing into each unit.
This allows for maximum efficiency. This precise control allows for zoning that can keep every room in your home at exactly the right temperature. It will also use up to 30% less energy and regular, non-inverter AC units.
Another huge advantage of the VRV system is that it is very flexible with its layout. You can easily add to your system when needed. The refrigerant piping that it uses takes up far less space than traditional ductwork does in homes. This especially comes in handy when working with older, historical buildings that were not built with central HVAC and ductwork in the first place.
How will this system benefit my home in Albuquerque?
Many homes here in Albuquerque have furnaces in them that would normally have an outdoor AC unit, but then they will have a second floor to their home with a master bedroom, a kid’s room, or even a den that either gets too hot or too cold and won’t stay regulated either way.
When you choose to work with Wagner and allow us to install your new system, we can either put in an air handler or furnace, and have the VRV Life system outside. We can also put in an indoor mini-split to further control temperature in the master bedroom or the kid’s rooms. Doing this allows you to be able to control each individual space to get the room to its best possible comfort level.
One of the nicest things about this system is that it gives us lots of options for retrofitting and it is incredibly quiet compared to other units in the market. It also has a very small footprint, so it can virtually fit anywhere.
Daikin is leading the way for the future of cooling and heating. They’re not content to just follow what other HVAC companies have been doing for decades. In fact, the opposite is true: other companies started to see what Daikin was doing and immediately wanted in on this revolutionary technology, because they were the first to pioneer it.
