Variable Refrigerant Volume Systems Explained

While most people have a basic understanding of how heating and air conditioning systems work, few have heard of variable refrigerant volume systems. This type of heating and cooling system is highly efficient and can allow you to set various rooms in your building to different temperatures. The technology behind the system is complex and has been around since 1982.

Understanding VRV Technology

Most heating and cooling systems have a simple on and off switch and will produce the same amount of warm or cool air, regardless of the conditions. VRV systems work by having several individual units installed in various zones of a building. They are all hooked up to a main outdoor unit. When one of the indoor units needs to heat or cool, it will request refrigerant from the main unit. By having all of the indoor units running individually, it’s possible to fine-tune the temperature of a space.

Cool a Building Efficiently

VRV systems are much more energy-efficient than traditional heating and cooling systems. Because you won’t heat or cool spaces that don’t need attention, you’ll be able to reduce the overall energy use in a building. Some VRV systems can detect if a room is being used and adjust the temperature accordingly.

Customize Temperature Zones

VRV systems work in a similar fashion to mini-split heating and cooling systems. They’ll allow you to keep your living area warm while your bedrooms can stay at a cooler temperature. You’ll be able to customize your home or commercial space as needed.
