VRF will still dominate

THE UK head of the world's biggest volume producer of air conditioning products - LG - says that some sectors of the industry of are using 'scare tactics' over the forthcoming F-gas regulations.
VRF will still dominate
The, F-gas regs, which are intended to reduce emissions of fluorinated greenhouse gases, include a provision for the regular inspection of in-space DX air conditioning systems over a certain size.

Tony Gittings general manager of LG's UK ac dismisses the arguments of some industry pundits who believe that this will have an adverse effect on sales of VRF systems - to the benefit of conventional water-based fan coil systems.
'The success of VRF is indicative of the ability of the technology over and above conventional systems - particularly on energy efficiency and ease of installation - and the actual capital cost of VRF is reducing.
'If a client invests thousands of pounds in an energy efficient VRF system, they are hardly going to abandon that investment because of refrigerant leak checks. A system of this size would have an inherent maintenance schedule and refrigerant leak checks could easily be incorporated into this regime on a regular basis, with the minimum of fuss.'
