Are you looking to install a VRF or VRV air-conditioning system for your office or industrial premises? Before you start searching for the best brand for your air-conditioning, it is important that you aware of the pros and cons of both systems. Also, it is helpful that you understand the difference between VRF and VRV system before learning more about the air-conditioner system, which could be seen in our previous post.

Regular maintenance in VRV and VRF aircon system is also required to ensure optimal level of performance. In the VRF and VRV air-conditioner system, you could install and connect various air-conditioning units using the same system. This attracts many to find out more about the air-conditioning unit. The installation cost initially would be less costly as compared to the usual air-conditioner system, keeping the cooling performance constant. Thus, this will result in the installation of the additional air-conditioning units to be carried out with ease.

With this cooling system, it is equipped with control features where users can control each individual air-conditioner unit. When compared to central air-conditioner, where it is harder to implement such a control system. With the additional parts and components that focus on the efficiency, the VRV and VRF system are able to operate efficiently with the same cooling performance. Also, the air-conditioning system is able to operate differently according to the desired cooling comfort as well as the surrounding temperature. This will ensure that the energy efficiency would be maximised during the operation.

In addition, since the VRV and VRF units requires longer pipes due to the location and area required, it is often far away from your air-conditioning units or room. Thus, the noise of your VRV or VRF units would significantly reduce due to the distance. Furthermore, it is noticed that the noise coming out of the system tends to be lower as compared the split air-conditioning system.

8. The installation is less sophisticated as compared to the traditional cooling system where combustion, and other work are not mandatory in this air-conditioner.

9. The design of the VRV and VRF system is able to support the system and it does not require the wall-mounted grille as compared to other units.

10. With the new innovation in the development of air-conditioners, the use of refrigerant in the VRF or VRV air-conditioner are viewed to be environmentally friendly as compared to other types.

As discussed earlier, there are many benefits of installing the VRF or VRF air-conditioning system, including greater energy efficiency, modular design to expand the cooling needs if required, less complicated installation, zone control, better cooling comfort and many more. However, when there are pros, there will be cons as well.

Disadvantages of VRF and VRV Air Conditioning System

1. The application of the air-conditioner system may not best-suit environment such as medical buildings or lab.

2. As mentioned above, the VRF Mitsubishi Electric air-conditioning system or VRV Daikin cooling system would adjust its operations depending on the surrounding temperature. This could pose an issue and may not be suitable for units where it require high surrounding temperature. This might affect the operations of the units.

3. For VRF air-conditioning system, various air-conditioning pipes and joints have to be layout and installed before setting up the air-conditioning units in operation. It is important where the installation and various works are carried out professionally to ensure good operation on the VRV or VRF cooling system for an extended stretch of time. One small mistake during the installation could be hard to track due to the extensive work during the installation process.

4. Due to the complication during the installation, it could pose certain challenge in the event where leaks occur.

5. The VRF or VRV system with its innovative solution result in higher cost than the common split air-conditioning system.
