HOUSTON, Texas – Daikin North America LLC has recently launched the new VRV LIFE systems. VRV LIFE systems are re-inventing residential air conditioning by breaking traditional HVAC technological barriers.
VRV LIFE systems are designed specifically for residential applications, whether it’s single-family homes, townhomes or condominiums. The precision engineering of the new VRV LIFE systems provide flexibility, zoning, low sound and space savings, with the ability to mix and match several styles of both ducted and duct-free indoor models to accommodate the typical and the not so typical HVAC applications.
Up to nine indoor units can be connected to a single outdoor VRV heat pump to heat or cool, with high heating capacities below 0 F (-18 C). A highlight of the VRV LIFE system offering includes an industry-first, ducted-style furnace and evaporator coil system combination. Furnaces with evaporator coil combinations have been a common HVAC application throughout North America for many years, and are now also available with Daikin’s VRV inverter compressor technology.
Daikin VRV LIFE systems use inverter-driven VRV technology to solve some of the age-old residential HVAC challenges. Compressors are the heart of heating and cooling systems and – as the single most energy consuming part of a system – it is important to understand that not all compressors are created equal. Traditional HVAC systems use single-speed or dual-speed compressors, while VRV LIFE systems are equipped with Daikin variable-speed inverter technology.
VRV LIFE systems can be configured as a heat pump or a dual-fuel system using a gas furnace. As an all-electric heat pump, this system provides an efficient cooling and heating solution year round with an extreme temperature-wide operating range from -4 F to 122 F. For colder months or for optimizing operational cost, VRV LIFE systems can also be paired with a gas furnace to provide a reliable source of heat in the most extreme climates.
The small footprint and side discharge design of the VRV LIFE system outdoor heat pump provides additional placement flexibility, requires less space and is quieter than traditional air-conditioning systems.
The VRV LIFE system includes a 10-year parts and 10-year compressor replacement limited warranty. For more info, visit: https://daikincomfort.com/go/vrvlife/.
