Daikin VRV and Multi Head Systems

One of the best solutions for heating and cooling different rooms at the same time with one outdoor unit connected to multiple indoor units.

Melbourne’s Four Seasons in one day

Ensuring comfortable indoor conditions for your Melbourne home or office is very important, especially when it’s that time of the year when the temperatures outside rise to blistering levels. However with the high cost of energy and the hassles involved in installing complicated HVAC systems, you would be well advised to consider alternatives to traditional air conditioning solutions.

Saving you time and money

At iEnergi, we offer a range of air conditioning systems that are not only energy efficient but also much easier to install and maintain compared to centralised ducted systems. With a dedicated room air conditioner, you can effectively cool or heat individual rooms or areas in your property, allowing you to achieve the comfort level you desire in no time at all.

What is a multi head conditioning system?

As the name suggests, a multi head air conditioning system comprises an outdoor unit and multiple indoor units. By having multiple indoor units connected to 1 outdoor unit, it saves considerable space. Comapre this to a split type system where 1 indoor unit is connected to 1 outdoor unit. In this configuration, when there is multiple indoors there is then considerable space required for an equal number of outdoor units

What is VRV?

Invented by Daikin the VRV system is a multi-split type air conditioner for commercial buildings that uses variable refrigerant flow control to provide customers with the ability to maintain individual zone control in each room and floor of a building. Similar to a multi head, it allows you to have a larger number of indoor units connected to 1 outdoor unit. Typically this type of system is used on large homes and commercial projects

How do they work?

The system uses a refrigerant to transfer heat energy from the indoors to the outdoors, and vice versa. When used on a hot summer day, a split air conditioning system absorbs heat from the room through the indoor unit and converts it to cool, fresh air through the outdoor unit. The system then pumps the air back into the room, providing the occupants with refreshing, conditioned air. In winter, the process can be reversed, allowing you to use the system as an efficient heat pump.

How Can Your Melbourne Home Benefit from a Multihead/VRV Air Conditioning System?

Multihead/VRV air conditioning systems offer a number of advantages:

  • Simple, Unobtrusive Design

Unlike centralised HVAC systems, this type of conditioning system does not require extensive ductwork, allowing you to preserve the architectural integrity of your home.

  • Effortless Deployment and Easier Zoning

Because of its simple configuration, a multihead/VRV air conditioning system is also very easy to install. And because each room can have its own air conditioning unit, zoning is also made much easier. You can set individual temperature levels for each zone in your property, or you may forgo air conditioning altogether in rooms or areas where you don’t really need it.

  • Energy-Efficient and Cost-Effective

Invertor technology provides a highly efficient way to heat and cool your home.
