Daikin VRV IV Heat Pump wins Plus X Award
Daikin VRV IV Heat Pump won the Plus X Award 2013 for Innovation, High Quality, Functionality and Ecology. By awarding the quality seal to Daikin's VRV IV the Plus X Award's expert jury has appreciated its unrivalled features, which comprise, amongst others, a variable refrigerant temperature that optimises seasonal efficiency and a continuous heating mode during defrost operation for increased room comfort.
The variable refrigerant temperature technology is one of the VRV's outstanding technical features. During operating mode the system will automatically adjust condensation and evaporation temperatures to the actual power requirements, thus increasing the system's seasonal efficiency by up to 28%. Compared to the preceding model the VRV IV needs up to 28% less primary energy and therefore has a 28% lower CO2 output at the same time.
These technical values not only meet but even surpass the EU's overal 20/20/20 climate targets that demand 20% less CO2-emissions, 20% more renewable energy use and 20% less primary energy use by the year 2020.
