VRF (Variable Refrigerant Flow)

Variable refrigerant flow (VRF) heating and cooling systems provide efficient and economical climate control for your home or business. As a distributor and installer of Yanmar VRF systems, Highland West Energy proves, once again, that saving you money on your energy costs using environmentally friendly equipment is our #1 goal.

Environmentally Friendly Heating and Cooling With VRF

Yanmar VRF systems are one of the most environmentally friendly heating and cooling options available. Using natural gas, these systems produce 80% less NOx, 100% less SOx, and 35% less CO2 than systems that use coal to produce the same results. Reducing harmful emissions helps to preserve our limited natural resources.

Yanmar VRF heating and cooling systems can help reduce your energy costs by up to 90% in many cases. This is because VRF systems consume natural gas directly. By switching to VRF, your electricity no longer has to be transferred over miles of power lines, routed through transformers, and processed through power stations (all of which cause losses in total electricity delivered). Your VRF units will provide nearly 100% of the energy needed to heat and cool your buildings.

Cooling with VRF

The coils of the indoor unit capture the heat from the ambient air and transfer it into the refrigerant lines and to the refrigerant. This heat is then passed through the refrigerant lines to the outdoor unit and into the outdoor coils. The outdoor fan motors then expel the heat into the outside air.

Heating with VRF

The coils of the outdoor unit capture heat from the outside air. Even at 0°F, there remains 85% usable heat in the air. This heat is then transferred into the refrigerant and passed through the refrigerant lines to the indoor units. The indoor unit fan motors then output the heat into the room.

VRF Two Pipe System

The Yanmar 2 pipe VRF system is optimal for smaller structures that do not require the heating and cooling needs of larger, multi-zone buildings. The 2 pipe units are economically friendly and provide outstanding efficiency for your heating and cooling needs. The 2 pipe system is perfect for when you need to maintain a constant temperature throughout your structure.

VRF Three Pipe System

Yanmar’s 3 pipe VRF system is the perfect choice when different zones in your building need different climates. Unlike the 2 pipe system, the 3 pipe system allows for simultaneous cooling and heating in different zones. For instance, IT closets can maintain a cooler environment while workspaces can be heated to a comfortable level. The 3 pipe system is the ultimate choice when your heating and cooling requirements demand precision control, anytime and anywhere.
