Looking for the best residential air conditioning systems in Kenya? Choose VRV!

by Rudra S. Consultant
While there are a plethora of choices out there when it comes to choosing air conditioning systems, none can deliver home comfort quite like a central air conditioner on those hot and humid summer days. A central AC unit circulates cool air, reduces humidity and even improves the overall air quality of your home. Moreover, the importance of an HVAC system or a VRV system in commercial and residential buildings cannot be overemphasized. This technology circulates only the minimum amount of refrigerant needed at any one time and thus enables individual climate control of air conditioning zones. The name VRV is derived from the Variable Refrigerant Volume technology. There are a few key things to look for when you’re buying a new energy-efficient air conditioner that will help keep your energy bill—and the temperature in your home—low.

1.    Programmable temperature settings: These days, even basic window units come with digital displays so that you can set a precise temperature and even schedule your A/C to turn off when you’ll be out and back on when you’re coming home. VRV central air conditioning systems are even more flexible.

2.    Energy-saving setting: Air conditioners nowadays have an energy-saving setting, which means that the unit will turn off not only the compressor but also the fan once your space has cooled off, and will thus, save energy.

3.    Wifi-enabled A/C: If you’ve begun to experiment with making your home smart—if you have a device like Alexa or Google Assistant, for example, or a wifi-enabled thermostat that you can adjust with your smartphone—consider installing a smart air conditioner. VRV systems come with a plethora of such features and more.

What is VRV and why choose it?

VRV essentially is a very sophisticated technological air conditioning system, based on several principles:
1.    Refrigerant only – Thus, in such systems, refrigerant is the only coolant material in the system (in contrary to the chilled water systems, where refrigerant is used for cooling/heating the water that is circulated throughout the whole system).
2.    Inverter compressors: Inverter compressors allow lowering power consumption with partial cooling/heating loads.
3.    One outdoor unit handling multiple indoor units
4.    Ability of modular expansion
When it comes to price, a VRV HVAC system would cost on the higher side of the price spectrum. However, it’s much more energy efficient in the long run. For instance, an 18000 BTU Inverter Split Ac Price in Kenya would range anywhere between 65000 to 75000 KES; however, you would end up spending a tad bit more than you would in case of a VRV HVAC system. Another advantage of this HVAC system is that it’s just one outdoor unit powering up multiple outdoor units.

Cooling only systems – These systems can only cool. Heating is not available. Fan and Dry modes are available for each indoor unit independently.
Heat Pump systems– All the indoor units can either heat, or cool at a particular time. Fan and Dry modes are available for each indoor unit independently.
Heat Recovery systems – These systems are the most sophisticated ones, where cooling and heating may be available by each indoor unit, independently, at the same time.

Thus, if you’re looking for a single system that offers a combination of heating, cooling, and ventilation, then you should opt for a VRV system. It not only offers an ultimate temperature control solution that is suitable for any building, but it is also highly energy-efficient in the long run.
