Daikin VRV Life outperforms traditional HVAC heating and cooling because of its ability to not just “condition” the air but to apply advanced energy efficiency technology to heat or cool only what’s required - when it is required.
Comparing the Daikin VRV or “Variable Refrigerant Volume” system to a regular HVAC system is like comparing a Porche to a Volkswagen. They will both get you where you want to go but boy is there a difference in comfort!
Since 1982, VRV* systems have become established as the standard for energy saving, flexibility and comfort. In short, VRV air conditioning systems reduce energy consumption compared to traditional central ducted systems. And when it comes to your energy bill, less energy consumed means less money spent. Now, VRV systems have been re-imagined and re-engineered to tackle the many challenges of the traditional systems with the goal of enriching the life of homeowners across North America. The many intelligent features included to benefit your comfort represent VRV LIFE.
*The name VRV derives from this technology that we call "variable refrigerant volume"
The Daikin VRV system is designed to use as little energy as possible. It is so advanced that it can even detect if there are people in a room and activate its abilities based on actual need.
It uses the current temperature and the thermostat’s call to determine how much energy to use, adjusting its final output accordingly. This process is different from traditional furnaces or air conditioners, that just cycle on and off based on the set temperature on a thermostat.
This system supports zoned heating and cooling allowing for the complete customization of your residence.
VRV (variable refrigerant volume) and VRF (variable refrigerant flow) are two different terms for the same technology. Daikin Industries invented the technology. Because VRV is a trademark of Daikin Industries, Ltd., all other companies that copy this technology refer to it as a VRF system.
The residential Daikin VRV system differs from traditional HVAC in that it is completely customizable. This system supports zoned heating and cooling. That gets rid of the usual “one-size-fits-all” approach of one thermostat regulating the entire house. Instead, the Daikin system can measure different zones of your home separately. Then, it will regulate each independently from the others.
The space saving Daikin VRV operates with a single small outdoor unit and up to nine indoor air handlers freeing up your home from the space-eating oversized furnace.
The Daikin VRV smart controls allow you to customize each room to the desired comfort level of whoever is sitting there making each room its own oasis of cool comfort or cozy warmth.
The cost of the Daikin VRV may surprise you. While its upfront cost may seem high compared to traditional heating and cooling methods, its operating costs over time are significantly less than a traditional system allowing you to recover your initial investment quickly and go on to enjoying monthly savings in no time.
The beauty of the Dakin installation is that it requires no invasive construction or re-inventing ductwork. You can simply utilize available ductwork or choose to run small tubing through the walls many times completing installation in a day or less.
