Daikin VRV Life

Daikin is the World’s No. 1 air conditioning company. Thanks to our constant innovation in comfort, energy efficiency, control and reliability, we define the benchmarks for quality within the industry.

At the core of the VRV LIFE systems is built-in intelligence that gives you independent zoning control with maximum flexibility and energy savings. With the ability to connect up to nine indoor units to one outdoor unit, the space-saving VRV LIFE system is ideal for most residential projects.

Product Overview

Compact and quiet operation

Compact and quiet operation inside and out. Outdoor unit runs 10 dBA less than traditional system (when compared to Daikin DZ14SA), and can use up to 75% less outdoor space.

Indoor Air Quality image

Indoor Air Quality

Indoor Air Quality modules such as air cleaning systems, humidity control, air purification, and ventilation can be added incrementally into your home to make it the perfect indoor climate based on your family’s needs, and usage of your home.

Since 1982, VRV* systems have become established as the standard for energy saving, flexibility and comfort. In short, VRV air conditioning systems reduce energy consumption compared to traditional central ducted systems. And when it comes to your energy bill, less energy consumed means less money spent. Now, VRV systems have been re-imagined and re-engineered to tackle the many challenges of the traditional systems with the goal of enriching the life of homeowners across North America. The many intelligent features included to benefit your comfort represent VRV LIFE.

*The name VRV derives from this technology that we call “variable refrigerant volume”

Zoning

Zoning is an important factor that contributes to energy savings and comfort – standard central ducted systems do not have the ability to precisely adapt to your lifestyle and how you use your home. In most cases, larger homes can be separated in 2 zones, each zone being served by a separate system.

Daikin VRV LIFE systems provide effective zoning solutions by offering the flexibility to connect up to 9 zones to a single system. Precision engineered refrigerant control allows system operation to meet the needs of individual zones.

  • Personalized comfort, no more argument over the temperature
  • Energy savings: turn off zones not in use
  • Solve hot and cold spots by adding more indoor units

Applications

Mix-match ducted

Mix-match ducted and ductless units by connecting up to nine zones to one outdoor unit

Space-saving

Space-saving with ability to connect 2 gas furnaces to one outdoor unit

Custom, selectable and programmable

Custom, selectable and programmable temperature to switch from heat pump to gas heat

Quiet operation

Quiet operation with sound levels under 58 dBA

Operational Efficiencies

VRV LIFE systems are engineered with Daikin inverter and variable refrigerant temperature (VRT) technologies. These empower the compressor to operate at its optimal efficiencies during part load operations and thereby reducing power consumption* and providing high operational efficiencies.

Sound

Daikin VRV systems are globally renowned for their quietness. With operating sound pressure levels as low as 57 dbA, VRV LIFE is an optimal solution for installation close to lot lines and sound sensitive applications.

Space

With a compact, light weight and space saving design of only 37”W x 12-5/8”D, VRV LIFE systems provide up to 75%2reduction in installation space compared to similar capacity top discharge unitary condensing units.

Features

  • Available in 2, 3, 4 and 5-Ton models
  • Excellent zoning flexibility with 1-to-1 and 1-to-multi connections
  • Broader diversity with ability to provide cooling and heating in up to 9 zones
  • Ability to choose heat pump or multi-zone Dual-Fuel heating capability
  • Auto and programmable modes for heat pump to gas heat switch over temperatures
  • Compatible with 12 types and 65 models of Daikin VRV indoor fan coil units and 80 – 97% AFUE Daikin up flow and down flow communicating gas furnaces
  • Dependable heat pump operation in extreme ambient conditions down to -4°F in heating mode and up to 122°F in cooling mode
  • Year round comfort and energy savings delivered by combining VRV and VRT technologies compared to traditional split systems
