Ice Air VRF What is VRF

What is VRF?

New technologies like Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) are on the move. But like all new technologies, there’s a learning curve – a curve that Ice Air has straightened out to maximize your investments.

Because there’s no longer any denying the benefits of VRF. And with Ice Air VRF, these benefits are delivered simply and effectively.

Check out Our Advantages

Consistent comfort. Ice Air VRF's advanced controls detect the precise requirements of each zone, utilizing the exact amounts of refrigerant and energy needed.

Quiet operation. Ice Air VRF systems keep the noisier condensing unit outside. Indoor air handlers are designed with advanced acoustics in mind.

Energy efficiency. Ice Air VRF systems use less energy because they are designed to provide exactly the amount of cooling or heating needed for the current conditions. They run less frequently, at a lower capacity, and with optional heat recovery capture heat from the cooling process and reuse it in other areas that may need heating.

Installation flexibility in tight spaces. Ice Air VRF systems have smaller air handlers that usually don’t require ducts or as much wall and ceiling space. Our unique Hi Rise units provide space savings.

Simultaneous, zoned heating and cooling. Ice Air heat recovery VRF systems use residual heat from the air during the cooling process for other parts of the building needing heat. It’s truly “zoned” air control.

State-of-the-art controls. Ice Air VRF mobile control technology allows adjustment of temperature settings for each zone from a mobile device.

Fewer breakdowns/less downtime. Ice Air VRF systems run only when needed, usually under partial-load conditions. That means less wear and tear on the parts, fewer breakdowns. And if something happens to one indoor unit, others are unaffected.

VRF Benefits for Building Owners

The Ice Air VRF intelligence control system enables switching between the heating and cooling modes quickly and easily.

VRF Benefits for Architects and Engineers

Ice Air VRF is THE choice for Architects and Engineers

Ice Air's VRF systems are especially suited for the tight spaces often found in high-rise buildings. Our flexibility in having a wide variety of air handlers gives specifiers a wide variety of choices in meeting the design space requirements. We are the only company offering our unique Hi Rise indoor units, which save floor space and can condition multiple rooms.

Flexibility Pure and Simple

The key benefits are efficiency and flexibility. Ice Air VRF systems operate at variable speeds rather than simply performing an on/off operation. That means they work “only when necessary” and give you substantial savings on both energy and energy costs. Tenants of buildings experience “on demand” control because of this advanced technology. We keep it simple.
