VRF versus VRV versus VRT
Inverter vs conventional comp pic
Daikin is an 80-year old company that is dedicated to manufacturing refrigerants and air conditioning equipment. In recent years, they have purchased well known US based manufactures such as McQuay and Goodman and have become the largest manufacturer of air conditioning equipment worldwide. In the 1980’s, when Daikin began selling this technology, Daikin used the acronym “VRV” meaning Variable Refrigerant Volume.
As other manufacturers such as Mitsubishi and LG developed competing products, they called it “VRF” (Variable Refrigerant Flow) and since the term “VRF” has become the more widely used term for this technology.
Arctic Moose Ltd coined and describes the group, including all manufacturers of Variable Refrigerant systems as "VRT" meaning Variable Refrigerant Technologies.
