Inverter Technology

Inverter technology is becoming incredibly valuable in the Columbia Valley for its unique ability to cool homes to a specific standard. Inverters allow for multiple different power settings, meaning you get more energy-efficient and accurate temperature control.

Our Daikin models, like the Daikin Heat Pump Model #RXL24UMVJUA can provide accurate cooling and heating for your home throughout the year with the help of inverter technology.

Variable Refrigerant Volume (VRV) / Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF)

Variable refrigerant volume (VRV) and variable refrigerant flow (VRF) are basically the same thing, and it is technology specific to Daikin systems! This technology allows for a specifically measured flow of refrigerant to be sent throughout the building, allowing different types of cooling and heating modes to be selected for homeowners.

Essentially, you get access to varying degrees of cooling for the entire building space. This handy technology gives homeowners and business owners in Columbia Valley more precise control over their indoor comfort.

SEER Ratings

The "SEER" rating, or the seasonal energy efficiency ratio, is what professionals use to calculate the output and energy efficiency of an air conditioner. The higher the SEER rating, the less energy the system must utilize in order to cool a space to a certain degree. This measurement of cooling is in BTUs (British Thermal Units), so it’s calculated very precisely.

Basically, always look for a system with a higher SEER rating to save you money on your energy bill in Columbia Valley.

HSPF Ratings

Heat pumps are measured differently from air conditioners because they run for the entire year. To measure the energy efficiency of a heat pump, we utilize the HSPF rating, or the heating seasonal performance factor. Just like the SEER rating, the HSPF rating defines how much energy the system consumes to heat or cool a specific area.

The higher the HSPF rating, the more energy-efficient your system is and the more money you’ll save down the line.
