Daikin accelerates the race to zero net carbon emissions and supports the decarbonisation of buildings with the VRV 5 heat recovery system

The company  launches new fifth-generation innovative system that significantly reduces buildings’ CO2 footprint through heat recovery technology

Daikin, the heating and cooling equipment manufacturer with more than 90 years of experience in the industry, aims to achieve a net zero carbon footprint across its entire business by 2050 and contributes, through its innovative integrated technologies, to maintaining the total carbon emissions as low as possible throughout the life cycle of buildings equipped with units in its portfolio, while ensuring a comfortable and healthy indoor climate. Thus, the new VRV 5 heating and cooling unit with heat recovery has an important contribution to this goal, by adopting the R-32 refrigerant with low GWP (Global Warming Potential) for large commercial buildings and maintaining the flexibility of VRV to serve all kinds of interior spaces, even small ones.

Heat recovery systems allow simultaneous cooling and heating, offering individual control of comfort levels. The technology thus provides free heating by transferring heat from areas requiring cooling to areas requiring heating.

The new VRV 5 heat recovery unit represents the future of commercial HVAC-R systems, making a significant contribution to the decarbonization of commercial buildings. The R-32 refrigerant reduces global warming impact by up to 71%, with a 68% lower GWP level and a lower amount of refrigerant compared to R-410A systems commonly used in commercial buildings.

The VRV 5 unit has a high seasonal efficiency, the three-pipe heat recovery system being extremely efficient and comfortable as it recovers and recirculates heat in spaces with different thermal needs and allows simultaneous operation in heating and cooling, regardless of the orientation of the building. Furthermore, the integration of ventilation units contributes to improving indoor air quality and creating a healthy indoor environment.

 

Flexibility through the Shîrudo technology

 

The new Branch Selector Box has been redesigned to incorporate Daikin’s unique Shîrudo technology, allowing installation in spaces up to 7 square metres without the need for complicated calculations or additional refrigerant control measures. Daikin’s Web Xpress design software, combined with the Shirudo technology, provides quick and easy system selection and design for integration into any type of space.

VRV 5 has the widest range of capacities on the market, up to a maximum of 75.8 kW, thus managing to cover the needs of medium and large buildings with a single system.

The new range is complemented by VRV indoor units with R-32, specially designed to fit all possible space configurations. Ceiling-mounted cassettes, medium and high external static pressure (ESP) false ceiling uncharged units, and wall units are among the options available. The range also benefits from diversity in terms of capacities ranging from 1.1 kW to 31.5 kW and covering all dimensions of space.

Sustainability and innovation are important parts of Daikin’s vision for the environment for 2050. The new VRV 5 heat recovery system is designed according to Daikin principles, thus maximizing the efficiency of the building with a minimal footprint on the environment.

As an industry leader, we are committed to accelerating the sustainable transformation of the HVAC-R market by providing a healthy and comfortable indoor environment using air power. We remain a reliable partner, which is why our current actions establish long-term business relationships with market stakeholders and customers, by continuously supporting all efforts to achieve both our partners’ goals and our own sustainability goals. As a manufacturer, we have reduced waste through circular economy schemes such as LOOP by Daikin and by developing new innovative solutions, including VRV 5 with Shîrudo technology, we further reduce our carbon footprint”, says Daniel Vasile, Managing Director of Daikin România.

The VRV 5 system will be delivered from the European Daikin factories in the Czech Republic and Belgium starting in July 2022.
