Here at Advanced Products Group (APG) we’re committed to providing our customers the top HVAC technologies and systems. That’s why we offer Mitsubishi Electric CITY MULTI® VRF technology. Curious about VRF? Review our listing of VRF’s main benefits below:
Mitsubishi Electric offers simultaneous heating and cooling VRF in a two-pipe system while most of the industry still requires three pipes. The branch controller (BC) configurations eliminate the need for individual “selector” boxes in each zone, reducing costly and unnecessary proprietary fittings as well as the additional piping and electrical connections that are inherent in a three-pipe system. In addition, utilizing pre-insulated soft copper tubing between the branch controllers and the evaporators reduces labor costs and eliminates possible leak points associated with the use of standard hard copper.
Two-pipe architecture allows indoor units to change temperature quickly from cooling to heating, or heating to cooling. The cooler/hotter refrigerant from one indoor unit moves to the branch controller and gets redistributed right there to another indoor unit. Since a three-pipe system’s refrigerant has to be moved farther to undergo the same redistribution process, the system responds more slowly, loses energy and costs more money to operate.
Energy efficiency is key in today’s marketplace. Mitsubishi Electric’s INVERTER-driven compressor technology uses the absolute minimum energy necessary to maintain personalized comfort levels while adjusting to part-load conditions, which occur most frequently. VRF systems consistently perform at 25 percent higher efficiency than conventional HVAC systems and help eliminate hot and cold spots.
Superior Technical Support:
Mitsubishi Electric has an unmatched technical support infrastructure across the U.S. As a part of its distributor network, APG is proud to offer comprehensive training on CITY MULTI VRF technology. Instructors provide lectures and hands-on training and are an open resource for students both in the classroom and out in the field.
Ease of Serviceability and Maintenance:
With the use of refrigeration ball valves on each circuit, CITY MULTI VRF systems have unmatched maintenance flexibility. An individual zone can be shut down, serviced and even relocated without affecting the functionality of the rest of the system. Through comprehensive controls – such as the CITY MULTI® Controls Network or Diamond Controls™ Solutions – technicians have remote access to the system and maintenance data which can be monitored and adjusted without the need for a third-party controls system. These features bring an owner piece of mind and build value for a servicing technician in meeting the needs of their customer.
