In California, VRF systems have been used primarily for commercial HVAC until recently. After installing and maintaining many commercial VRF systems, REE Mechanical technicians have the factory training and expertise for installing a residential Mitsubishi Electric VRF system in your De Luz, CA area home.
What is VRF?
VRF stands for Variable Refrigerant Flow. Similar to mini-splits or ductless heat pumps, VRF systems use liquid refrigerant to transfer heat for both heating and cooling. VRF systems are different in that they rely on smaller, individually controlled air handlers that are situated throughout the home in place of a single large air handler. These air handlers offer more precise and individual controls, and allow for heating and air conditioning.
What are the Benefits of VRF Systems?
VRF systems operate using DC electricity requiring less amperage or electricity strength than AC electric operated heating and cooling. The result is extremely high energy efficiency. Additionally, VRF systems are designed to capture and redirect heat produced to zones that need it.
VRF systems run at lower power and have fewer moving parts than traditional systems, so maintenance is simplified.
One System for All Seasons
VRF systems are ideal for Southern California homes because they provide both heating and cooling efficiently with one system. We all have experienced those days when you need both heating and cooling for comfort!
Compact Ductless Design
Individual air handlers are connected to the main condenser using small diameter copper pipes, eliminating the need for bulky ductwork. The air handlers are sized based on the area they are conditioning and are concealed in ceilings or walls.
The Future of Air Conditioning & Heating
VRF systems can have a higher up-front cost due to the individual air handlers, controls and copper piping. However, their durability and efficiency make a lot of sense for homeowners who want to upgrade their heating and cooling systems to a state-of-the-art combined HVAC system. REE Mechanical offers unique capabilities to design and install a new Mitsubishi VRF system in your home!
