As heating and cooling experts here in the Northwest, we at Revival Energy Group have helped countless homeowners and commercial building managers find the right heating and cooling solutions for them. Because of the many benefits that VRF HVAC systems have to offer for commercial buildings, we regularly help facility managers in the Portland, OR and Vancouver, WA areas install and maintain these systems in their properties. VRF systems often prove to be an excellent choice in managing the particular heating and cooling needs of a building, all while still keeping energy consumption down.
VRF: Smart Heating and Cooling for Your Building
A VRF (variable refrigerant flow) system, also known as a VRV (variable refrigerant volume) system, is a sophisticated system designed to meet the specific heating and cooling needs within a building. Where many traditional HVAC systems are limited to one condenser unit, one compressor, and one evaporator, VRF systems allow for one condenser unit to be connected to multiple evaporators — each of which is controlled individually. The VRF system sends continually adjusts the amount of refrigerant sent to each evaporator, taking advantage of existing heat and cool air in the building.
All of this means that instead of the entire HVAC system kicking on when a single room in the building becomes too cold or too hot, the system can work only as needed to maintain the proper comfort levels throughout the entire space. With a VRF system, you can essentially create zones within a building that are individually controlled. You could even heat and cool different areas of your property simultaneously.
The Many Benefits of VRF
A VRF system may be the best option for your commercial building for a number of reasons. These systems offer a great deal of flexibility because they allow you to heat and cool specific areas within a building as needed. This makes them perfect for buildings that require customized heating and cooling over multiple zones.
VRF systems are also more energy efficient because they provide the exact amount of heating or cooling needed based on current climate conditions. They can even capture and reuse heat from the cooling process. Because VRF systems work only as needed under partial-load conditions, they see a lot less wear and tear than traditional HVAC systems. This could mean for a longer lifespan of your VRF system.
