Ductless Systems and Applications

Going ductless doesn’t involve going through a major renovation. Fact is, there’s very little mess at all. Nor does it mean sacrificing a room with a view to a bulky window unit. Instead, a ductless heat pump or air conditioner integrates neatly into the space. It’s mounted where it’s least obtrusive — and most effective at quietly and gently directing treated air to every corner of the room.

With greater efficiency, targeted temperature control, installation flexibility, customer satisfaction and quality, it’s no wonder that the industry is shifting towards Ductless Systems. When it comes to whole-home comfort, understanding heating and cooling equipment can be complicated. At CE Northeast, we want to make it simple. Just like our dealers have the tools to give you whole-home comfort, we want to give you the tools to make the right choices. And it starts with learning the basics. From HVAC to Indoor Air Quality and more, we’ve got your comfort covered. Carrier & Bryant Ductless systems not only offer solutions for spaces without ductwork, but they also work well in areas that conventional heating or cooling systems don’t adequately keep comfortable, allowing you to personalize your comfort no matter where you are in your home.

Residential

Single or multi-zone systems. Heating and cooling or just cooling. Whatever your needs, wherever your space, however you use it, Ductless systems offer customizable solutions that are efficient and quiet.

Are the refrigerant piping length requirements too far or you have a need for a great variety of indoor units than you can get from a ductless system? Is 3-phase power unavailable or the capacity requirements too low for a larger VRF system? Then Single-Phase VRF is the answer.

Home layout

The Carrier Single-phase VRF (Variable Refrigerant Flow) Heat Pump provides an energy efficient, flexible solution for commercial and residential applications. It’s available in two capacities, 3 and 4-ton units, matched up with multiple style indoor units. All the indoor units can be controlled by their own individual controller or connected to a central controller. And, there’s a variety of control options offered based on feature requirements.

Residential & Multi-Family Applications

Carrier Single-phase VRF can be easily integrated into any home, no matter the demands of the space. The system allows for a long line length between the outdoor and indoor units, offering more options for installation between floors of your home. Utilize the centralized controls network with an expanded line of seven indoor unit styles.

Light Commercial Applications

Single-phase VRF system offers design flexibility for when a building needs to be divided into smaller units or expand usable space in size. This system is a perfect choice for applications like one-to-two story office buildings, strip malls and retail spaces, fire and police stations and banks, to name just a few.

Carrier Variable Refrigerant Flow systems deliver comfort where it’s needed, with increased zoning flexibility, efficiency and space saving design. VRF technology is part of an innovative, new indoor comfort system that can connect up to 40 fan coil units to a single outdoor condensing unit. Each fan coil unit can be independently controlled by varying the refrigerant flow, alternating the capacity being delivered to each zone. The result is remarkably efficient performance that minimizes energy loss and makes optimal use of the system’s zone-specific temperature control.

VRF systems for commercial applications allow perfectly matched, flexible solutions. These are the perfect choice for large spaces where individual preferences or integrated building controls are necessary, like hospitals, nursing homes, education and office buildings, hotels or restaurants. Each fan coil unit can be independently controlled by varying the refrigerant flow and, in doing, varying capacity delivered to each zone – making it one of the most effective and efficient systems available.

Carrier VRF comes in two system types: Heat Pump and Heat Recovery. The Heat Pump system provides heating or cooling from the system’s indoor units at any given time. This system is typically applied to similar exterior exposures, larger spaces or area with a similar heating or cooling profile. Heat Recovery systems, on the other hand, are perfect for a variety of zones of varying sizes and applications. This system allows fan coil units connected to the same outdoor unit to independently cool and heat through the use of a heat recovery system. Both the Heat Pump and Heat Recovery systems can provide whole building heating and cooling solutions without the expense of two separate traditional heating and cooling systems. The result is remarkably efficient performance that minimizes energy loss and makes optimal use of zone-specific temperature control.

Many of the advantages of VRF systems, which have led to this shift, include:

    Energy Efficiency

    Eliminates duct losses and high part load efficiency

    Zoned Comfort

    Numerous zones are possible within one building and controlling these zones is easy and precise.

    Quiet Operation

    Indoor and outdoor units are so quiet that they can be placed just about anywhere, giving you more flexibility on how to use indoor and outdoor space. Outdoor units can even be placed directly under a window and quiet indoor units are perfect in environments that require minimal disruption like schools, places of worship, libraries and more.

    Modular Installation

    Relatively light weight compared with chillers

    Design Flexibility

    Single outdoor unit can be connected to many indoor units of varying capacity and configuration (e.g., wall-mount, ceiling mount, etc.)

    Aesthetics

    HVAC systems don't have to get in the way of design. Small outdoor units provide for flexibility of placement and indoor units can be painted to blend in with your environment. (Consult a certified contractor for details on how to safely paint the cabinets).

    Lower Lifecycle Cost

    Operate with minimum energy usage. Only service the zones that need it, which allows for less required maintenance.

    Safety

    Zoned structure does not recirculate air into other zones, reducing the spread of airborne contaminants and allergens.

    Toshiba Carrier systems with intelligent VRF control provide levels of comfort other systems simply cannot match. That’s because differing pipe lengths in commercial buildings result in inconsistent levels of performance, especially when several indoor units are connected to a system. This imbalance is caused by pressure loss and thermal leaks that inhibit the optimum refrigerant flow to each indoor unit.

    Total System Control

    Toshiba Carrier intelligent VRF control overcomes many typical performance issues by providing precise control of up to 40 indoor units with just electrical wiring and copper refrigerant tubing. It’s a smarter system, sending refrigerant to the areas that need it, while supplying less refrigerant to areas that don’t. Without intelligent VRF control, refrigerant flows unevenly, typically oversupplying areas closer to the outdoor unit while under-supplying those that are farther away.

    Consistent Room-to-Room Temperature

    Balanced comfort is achieved regardless of line length, allowing occupants to enjoy consistent performance in spite of how close they are to the outdoor unit. Toshiba Carrier VRF systems monitor the flow of refrigerant to each indoor unit while tracking each model. The system adjusts for pressure losses by pipe length between the outdoor unit and each indoor component, as well as operating conditions. It computes the amount of refrigerant required by each indoor unit and controls the unit’s pulse motor valve to ensure optimal supply across the system.

    High Heat Setting

    The Toshiba Carrier VRF system can handle heating down to -4° F with 70% capacity. An extended operation range of the compressor was achieved by upgrading the software, which gives better heating capacities at lower ambient conditions. This was accomplished with no additional modifications to the current product line.

    World-Leading Performance

    Toshiba Carrier VRF combines multiple variable-speed compressors with vector-controlled inverters to achieve greater operating performance under partial loads. Their VRF systems are unsurpassed in the industry, while new, industry-leading improvements to VRF technology, flexibility and efficiency are made every day.
