4 Benefits of Variable Refrigerant Flow Systems

Joplin, MO has a pleasing but also highly variable climate. Summers can be very hot and humid, and winters mean colder weather and lots of ice. That’s why all Joplin homeowners must have a home that is kept at a comfortable temperature all year long. If you’re a Joplin homeowner in search of an HVAC system, now is the time to consider a variable refrigerant flow system. These systems have many benefits, including energy efficiency, quiet operation, adjustable room options, and flexible installation.

1. Energy Efficiency

Keeping utility bills to a minimum is an important task for all residents of Joplin. Installing a VRF system can help reduce your overall energy costs through zoned temperature control. Unlike a standard central HVAC system that delivers conditioned air throughout a home or business, a VRF system comprises outdoor units and multiple indoor units that provide heating and cooling to specific zones. This means that the system can be set up to only deliver conditioned air to the zones that need it rather than running at 100% capacity all of the time.

2. Very Quiet

Central air conditioning and heating units can be quite loud. A unit placed near a window can make it hard to get a good night’s sleep. The VRF system, on the other hand, operates so quietly that you’ll barely notice it’s there. Also, because they don’t use ductwork, these systems don’t produce the noise that damaged or aging ducts can. That’s good news for light sleepers and parents of newborns.

3. Adjustable Room Options

In addition to lowering your energy bills, zoning is a major advantage when you have people who prefer different indoor temperatures. Using zoning means you can control the temperature of each room in your home. You can keep the bedrooms at a lower temp to help facilitate good sleep, and those who like it warm can turn up the heat in a specific room without affecting the rest of the house.

4. Flexible Installation Options

Packaged heating and cooling systems take up a lot of space and require ducts to deliver conditioned air throughout a property. VRF systems typically don’t require any ducts, and they use relatively small air handlers that make it easier to install them in all types of spaces. With your heating and air system taking up less space, you’ll have more room in your home for other things.
