A Quick Note About VRF (Variable Refrigerant Flow)
Posted Feb 28, 2013 - 02:21 pm
Variable Refrigerant Flow, or VRF technology, is equipment that routes 2 and 3-pipe refrigerant circuits from one outdoor unit to multiple indoor units (or zones) and is capable of providing heating and cooling at the same time as different zones require.
 
Unlike traditional refrigerant systems that are either “on” and operating at 100% capacity or “off”, VRF equipment utilizes inverter compressors which provide variable speed operation. Why is this so important?  Because your HVAC systems seldom need to provide 100% of the capacity they are designed for.
