VRV 5 Heat Recovery

Purpose-built to support the decarbonisation of commercial buildings

We’re on a mission to build a sustainable legacy

It’s in our DNA to provide safe, healthy and comfortable spaces throughout the building life cycle with world-leading technology.

Driven by our dedication to achieve net zero CO2 emissions by 2050, we work together with our partners and customers in helping to create a world with healthier indoor air and minimal environmental impact.

Join us now in building a sustainable legacy.


Building a sustainable legacy together​

Driven by a commitment to achieve net zero CO₂ emissions by 2050, we provide safe, healthy and comfortable indoor climates throughout the building life cycle​ using cutting-edge technology.​

​Our VRV 5 heat recovery represents a major milestone on the path of decarbonization of commercial buildings.​

Leader in sustainability

The new VRV 5 heat recovery system represents the future of commercial air conditioning, allowing customers to greatly reduce their building's CO2 footprint through:

  • The easy integration of heat pump technology, both in new and existing buildings
  • The adoption of R-32 refrigerant, which reduces the GWP of the refrigerant by 71% when compared to that of R-410A
  • Higher seasonal efficiency compared to the previous series, measured on indoor units under real conditions
  • 3-pipe heat recovery, where heat is recovered and recirculated between spaces with different thermal needs
Shîrudo technology


Our flexible heat pump technology can be easily adapted to fit any building, anywhere.

  • Unmatched outdoor unit capacity up to 90kW in heating (28 HP)
  • Piping lengths and heights to meet any VRV application
  • Boxed solution with piping sizes smaller then ever before, which can easily be integrated in new and existing buildings
  • Quiet operation via 5 low sound steps, bringing sound pressure down to 40 dB(A)
  • Completely redesigned BS boxes for faster installation and easier servicing

Completely redesigned for faster installation and easier servicing

  • Faster installation thanks to Refrigerant Flow Through reducing the number of brazing points and joint kits
  • Easy servicing in false ceillings thanks to sliding down PCB
  • Limited ceiling void required as the box can be installed at just 5mm from the ceiling



Daikin 3-pipe heat recovery

Our 3-pipe heat recovery systems allow simultaneous cooling and heating by transferring heat from areas that require cooling to areas in need of warmth.

Daikin 3-pipe technology needs less energy to recover heat, meaning significantly higher efficiency during heat recovery mode. Our system can recover heat at a low condensing temperature because it has dedicated gas, liquid and discharge pipes.

Advantages of R-32

R-32 refrigerant has a lower Global Warming Potential and higher efficiency compared to R-410A, making it the most effective sustainable solution for VRF systems today.

  • Lower Global Warming Potential (GWP): only 1/3rd of R-410A
  • Lower refrigerant charge: 15% less compared to R-410A
  • Higher energy efficiency, greatly reducing the indirect CO2 eq. impact
  • Single component refrigerant, easy to handle and recycle.
  • A 71% reduction in potential global warming impact from the refrigerant

Advantages of VRV

VRV systems offer commercial buildings maximum flexibility and peace of mind thanks to the benefits direct expansion (DX) systems have to offer:

  • More responsive: Immediate reaction to changing conditions helps avoid overheating
  • Highly efficient: Only 2 energy transfer steps are needed (from air to refrigerant, and from refrigerant to air)
  • Quick and easy to install: All-in-one box solution without any requirement for field supplied equipment (gauges, pumps, valves, etc.)
  • Limited space requirements: All components are integrated, and refrigerant piping is compact.

The largest range of indoor units with specific R-32

RV indoor units with R-32, specially designed, offer maximum flexibility to adapt to the layout of any room, including R-32 leak detector as standard. The variety of capacities available, ranging from 1.1 kW to 31.5 kW, easily covers all possible room sizes.

How does heat recovery work?

Our innovative heat recovery systems allow cooling and heating functions to be carried out simultaneously. This gives individual control of the comfort level and also provides virtually free heating, as heat is transferred from areas that need cooling to areas that need to be heated.
