VRV Changed the History of Air Conditioning
In the past, getting on a ship was the only way to travel overseas. However, today, flying on an airplane has become the standard.
From time to time, new standards are born through innovations.
“Daikin’s development of VRV”
It was the moment a new standard was created;
the birth of the next generation of air conditioners.
*VRV is a trademark of Daikin Industries, Ltd.
In the past, central air conditioning was the only way to air condition the buildings.
Those were the days where hundreds of thousands of empty rooms around the world
were unreasonably air conditioned.
Daikin developed VRV, the world’s first multi-split type air conditioner for commercial buildings.
The realization of individual zone control was believed to be a huge challenge, until the arrival of VRV. This epoch-making development has drastically innovated air conditioning standard of commercial building.
By air conditioning only occupied rooms, VRV ensures both “energy savings” and “comfort.”
By using an inverter that operates with enhanced precise temperature control and efficiency, VRV air conditioner greatly cuts energy costs and realizes an even more comfortable environment.
Daikin developed the water-cooled VRV air conditioner. VRV enabled the outside unit to be paled indoors, and now can easily be installed even in high-rise buildings.
With heat recovery VRV air conditioner, simultaneous operation of heating and cooling with one outdoor unit became possible. Daikin realized enhanced comfort to buildings with diverse air conditioning needs, such as hotels, where people gather from all around the world.
Daikin developed VRV air conditioner, which can be installed just by replacing indoor and outdoor units reusing existing refrigerant piping. This development reduces the time of installation and minimizes the impact on retail businesses, which often operate 24 hours a day.
Daikin has brought VRV air conditioner to where outdoor temperatures rise to 50 °C. Centering on the Middle East, Daikin has spread VRV in this hot climate region.
For severely cold environments which temperatures drop as low as -25 °C, Daikin developed a highly efficient heat pump type VRV air conditioner. Daikin expanded the experience of VRV to the extremely cold regions, where combustion heating prevailed.
As a result of multilaterally pursuing "more comfort", Daikin has enabled the control of humidity by VRV system with DESICA, heat pump desiccant.
This system has been installed also in such places as art museums and libraries, which require precise humidity control.
What Daikin created was an ultimately new type of air conditioning.
Today, it has become one of the two types of
air conditioning systems, ducted and ductless, in the world.
Daikin will always be the pioneer of air conditioning and continue to expand this new standard, from building to building, around the world.
