# What is a VRF HVAC system?

## What is a VRF HVAC system?

Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) HVAC systems consist of outdoor units connected to multiple indoor units via refrigerant piping to provide cooling and heating to individual zones.

### Does VRF provide ventilation?

This system provides VRF ventilation air directly to the space and not directly to the Indoor Fan Coil Unit. The VRF ventilation air doesn’t directly Passover the Indoor Unit coil but instead is delivered through a grille or diffuser, or dumped into the return air attic for that fan coil.

#### Does VRF have return air?

This system provides VRF ventilation air directly to Indoor Fan Coil Unit or the return air duct; hence it’s coupled with the unit. This provides a direct path to the unit.

What is a 3 pipe VRF system?

Back to VRF systems. Our 3-pipe heat recovery VRF systems operate with 3 interconnecting pipes and are designed to provide simultaneous heating and cooling operations to individual indoor units according to the room condition/ requirement.

Is VRF electric or gas?

Each VRF system consists of a gas driven outdoor unit connected to a number of indoor units that have been selected to suit meet the various heating and cooling demands of the building to be air conditioned.

## Does VRF dehumidify?

A VRF system provides exceptional dehumidification and temperature control by rapidly adapting to changing loads.

### How is VRF calculated?

Sensible Heat Equation

1. Btuh = CFM x 1.08 x (EAT – LAT)
2. CFM = Btuh / 1.08 x (EAT – LAT)
3. Q = U x A x TD.
4. Q = Btu/Hour.
5. U = The U-Factor is the reciprocal of the Resistance.
6. A = Area (Ft2) of Building Component.
7. TD = Temperature Difference.
8. Q = A x SC x SCL.

#### What makes VRF efficient?

“Heat recovery VRF systems allow for additional performance efficiency by providing the capability of capturing heat from a zone that requires cooling and reusing it in a zone the requires heating,” explains Lehrer.

What is the best VRF system?

Top VRF system suppliers

• Daikin. Daikin, a pioneer of VRF system technology, was founded in the year 1924 and headquartered in Osaka, Japan.
• Mitsubishi Electric. Mitsubishi Electric is a Japanese multinational electronics and electrical equipment manufacturing company.
• Hitachi.
• Midea.
• United Technologies.

Which VRF system is best for home?

While just about any multi VRF system is going to be more efficient than your existing HVAC system, we think Lennox multi VRF systems are the best.

## Why choose airstage™ VRF systems?

AIRSTAGE™ VRF Systems can be designed to create an air conditioning solution to suit most buildings requirements. AIRSTAGE™ VRF Systems can be designed to effectively provide an air conditioning solution from a large domestic residence through to a large scale commercial building.

### How does the Fujitsu airstage VRF DC fan motor reduce power consumption?

The newly designed fan achieves high-performance with low noise operation, so the Fujitsu AirStage VRF DC fan motor power consumption is reduced by better than 25%, saving even more energy.

#### How does a VRF heat pump work?

All outdoor units have a wider operating temperature range and can operate in extreme temperature conditions. VRF Heat Pump system operates in non-simultaneous heating or cooling. Compressors are set to start operating in rotational order to equalize the cumulative running time of each unit.

How to monitor the VRF System?

The last 5 minutes of operation status can be saved continuously. The Web Monitoring System enables the monitoring of the system’s operation status at any time via the Internet to ensure trouble-free operation. The VRF network system operating in a building can be monitored in real time via the Internet.
