What Is A VRV/VRF System? 

First off, for all intents and purposes, “VRV” and “VRF” system refers to the same technology. The naming distinction is a legal requirement due to trademark.

“VRV” or “Variable Rate Volume” was a type of HVAC system developed by Daikin Industries in the 1980s, and the name was quickly trademarked. As the technology became more popular by the industry, the term “VRF” or “Variable Rate Flow” was adopted by the industry to refer to systems that utilized the technology without infringing on the trademark.

What sets these systems apart is how they utilize refrigerant to manipulate the temperature and humidity of the air. Functioning similar to a ductless mini-split, VRV/VRF systems utilize a series of evaporators/air handlers attached to a single condenser unit.

They’re different because rather than controlling the flow of refrigerant with a simple on-and-off state, VRV/VRF systems can variate the rate of flow intelligently to provide optimal amounts of refrigerant to each evaporator. This allows the system to maintain ideal temperatures rather than constantly catching up to itself, which is far more efficient overall.

What Are The Benefits?

Far Greater Efficiency

The ability to variate the flow of refrigerant allows for a far more efficient system overall. This ability also gives the system access to a function known as “heat recovery”. Most systems absorb heat from inside and release it outside. With heat recovery, VRV/VRF systems can use heat from one area and utilize it in another area where it’s needed.

It may seem insignificant, but this utilization of what would otherwise be wasted energy allows for far lower energy usage — which translates to lower utility bills.

Zoned Heating & Cooling

Just like a ductless system, VRV/VRF systems give business owners the ability to utilize “zoned” heating and cooling. This means that temperature can be individually set at each specific zone, which allows for far more efficient temperature control overall and the ability to make one area cooler and another warmer based on need.


Another area where VRV/VRF systems capitalize on efficiency, the utilization of multiplier air handlers forgoes the use of ductwork entirely. This increases overall efficiency because ductwork has been proven to account for up to 30% of efficiency loss for a ducted system.

Most Long-Term Savings Potential

All of these benefits combine to give businesses the most long-term savings potential over any other type of HVAC system. Between the lowered utility bills brought on by increased efficiency and the increased control over the temperature that allows catering to specific use cases and scenarios, VRV/VRF systems are a no-brainer for a business that requires the most amount of control with the least amount of fuss.
