Daikin applies VRV technology to heating only
Daikin Europe’s VRVIII heating-only system achieves COPs of around four. Outdoor units rated from 25 to 170 kW support up to 64 indoor units, with each indoor unit receiving precisely the heat it needs. Indoor units can be controlled individually. These systems are said to be particularly suited to public buildings where Summer cooling is not required.
Long pipe runs are possible, and the system’s modular construction promotes quick and easy installation. Start-up costs can be spread with phased installation.
15 types of indoor unit are supported, including ceiling-mounted, floor-standing and wall-mounted types. Fresh-air ventilation and Biddle air curtains can be integrated with a system.
