Why Variable Refrigerant Flow A/C Systems Make Sense for Remodeled Homes

Traditional ductwork based air conditioning system

Today, VRF Systems, also known as Variable Refrigerant Flow Air Conditioning Systems, are gaining in popularity in new home construction and with remodeled homes where  homeowners are seeking high efficient air conditioning systems that offer greater flexibility and comfort.  Traditional air conditioning and heating systems tended to have an outdoor compressor that sends conditioned refrigerant via a copper tubing to an indoor air handler as shown in the picture here.  The air handler chills the air in the air handler and its blower fan moves the chilled or heated air from there to each room via air ductwork.  Generally speaking, this limits the temperature of each room to a common thermostat.

Mention this article and get $750 off on a VRF or VRV Air Conditioning Systems over 46,000 BTUsWhen a homeowner wants greater control over the temperature in each room, a VRF A/C Systems is the ideal choice for many reasons – especially when it comes to a remodeled home or where an open ceiling design limits attic space.  With a VRF system, you have one or more compressors located outdoors that feed conditioned refrigerant to individual air handlers that are much smaller and in many cases, eliminates the air ductwork.  Each room has its own thermostat that controls just that unit.  With this type of system, you have literally have a room that is using the heat, while another room is either turned off or is being cooled for unmatched room by room personal control.

Example of a VRF Air Condition System - Berkun Air

A Modern VRF Air Conditioning System reduces ductwork, while providing the flexibility of room by room temperature control.

Another benefits is that if only one room is requesting cooling, the outdoor compressors runs at a much slower speed, delivering only enough conditioned refrigerant to cool that room and no more.  As the demand increases in that room and others, the outdoor compressor will generate the exact amount of conditioned refrigerant to meet the demand to keep your energy costs as low as possible.  And because little to no cooling ducts, there is much less energy loss from those cooling ducts located in a hot attic.

What is a VRF Heating and Cooling Systems?

Variable Refrigerant Flow Systems (VRF systems) are heating and cooling systems that utilize a technology developed in Japan in the early 1980s to meet the nations stricter energy requirements following the global gas crisis of 1973.  These systems were not only ultra efficient, but they offered unmatched flexibility for a variety of building techniques, especially in buildings where attic space may be limited for ductwork.

Highly Efficient Operation

Designed to be ultra efficient, when a single room needs cooling capacity, the outdoor condenser unit generates only enough cooling capacity to meet the immediate demand vs trying to cool and entire home as is common with many central air conditioning systems.  The VRF Air Conditioning Systems only operates in rooms that need conditioned air, allowing other rooms to be completely turned off.  Todays VRF Air Conditioning Systems work at about 30% higher efficiency as compared to conventional systems.

How long have VRF been around?

First introduced in Japan in 1982, VRF Systems were not offered globally until 1991.  These systems did not take off initially because they were new, and they required technicians to be certified to design, install and initialize.

Who can install a VRF System?

With a VRF Systems, each room can be controlled by its own thermostat.   Because a VRF Air Conditioning System is highly flexible, they have to be designed for the home as a whole unit and requires a cooling and heating network to be laid out.  This is not a task for an untrained air conditioning technician.

Important Note:  Most air conditioning manufacturers require that the designer and installer be certified for each system before the factory they will honor the warranty of the VRF Air Conditioning Systems.  This can come at a big shock to homeowners when years later, they find that their system isn’t covered by the warranty.

When are VRF Air Conditioner Cost Effective ?

VRF Air Conditioning systems are most cost effective in new home construction or major remodeling efforts where air duct work doesn’t already exist, or where the owner wants greater room by room temperature control.  For homes that already have ductwork, and the owner doesn’t want this level of control, it is often more cost effective to just replace the air conditioning systems while using the existing ductwork.

Berkun Air can always give you advise on what best works for you.

Quiet Operation

Conventional systems tend to have large air handlers.  When they are called upon to deliver conditioned air, the centrally located air handler moves a large volume of air throughout the homes air duct systems.  The very nature of these systems make them inherently noisier.

With a VRF Air Conditioning System, each room has its own ultra quiet blower, thus eliminating the need for air ducts.  Additionally, the fans of both the outdoor unit and individual rooms run at only the speed needed to bring that room / zone to the desired temperature.  This results in a much quieter system.

Can you compare Duct Work-based Air Conditioning vs Ductless ?

The very nature of a traditional duct based air conditioning system is that they tend to loose a fair amount of energy from the large surface area of the ducts themselves.  And lets not forget where most air ducts are located – in a hot attic !!  This only compounds the problem of energy loss.

When are VRF Heating and Cooling Systems most practical?

VRF Air Conditioning Systems are most practical in new construction and in remodeled homes.

Can you run heat in one room and cool another at the same time with a VRF System ?

Yes.  Each room is fed by separate cooling and heating piping systems.  The room’s thermometers controls the controls of which piping systems is used to meet the demand for that room.

Berkun Air Saves Man From Getting Ripped Off By 2 AC Firms

I want to share a feel good story that we were a part of recently that saved this family thousands of dollars.  A few weeks ago, we got a call from a gentleman that had purchased a Trane air conditioner roughly 9 years ago that wasn’t working so well.  We came about this family from a complaint filed with Trane representatives, and they in turn, referred them to us.  All we initially knew was this was a potential lead for service, but once I got to the home, we were told a story of how they felt duped by two other air conditioning firms.

They stated that they had a Trane air conditioner installed by this one firm roughly nine years ago and recently, it wasn’t cooling the home.  They then told us that they called the firm that installed the air conditioning system.  When they inspected the system, they said that the condenser coil and developed a leak and that the unit was shot.  They also stated that the coil unit was not covered beyond 5 years, but they had a new air conditioning system that they could offer to them at a very good price.   This is what we call bait and switch.  People panic when air conditioning steams go out and many air conditioning firms use this to their advantage.

Immediately they didn’t trust what was being told to them and called a very large and recognizable air conditioning installer in Palm Beach County.  They too told them that the units cooling coils was bad and not covered for 10 years and offered them a similar solution.  Yet again, they were asked to leave and took their problem up to Trane representatives.  After making several calls, Trane contacted Berkun Air and asked us for advise on this unit considering the system was not in their records from either the installer and / or the owner.

We got the request and make contact with the owner to schedule a visit later in the day.  Like the others, we confirmed that the condenser coil was bad, recorded the units serial numbers and confirmed that the unit was not in the database with Trane, but did get a manufacture date.  From this, we felt that there was enough to get the unit covered under a warranty replacement of the coil and went ahead of just replacing it.  We told them that we would deal with Trane and make it right – even though we were technically walking a fine line on if we would get reimbursed with our costs.

The custom was ecstatic that they had a working system and that it was covered under the original warranty.  They knew we were looking out for them and were just happy to have found us.  They also promised that they would pay it forward and share their story with others.  To us, we know that word of mouth referrals is our best form of advertising and its worth taking risks to earn the trust of our customers.

We feel that these stories are not told enough and people enjoy a happy ending.  We feel that in the end, we will see this come back to us in future business referrals.

The Truth about Florida’s Amendment 1 and State Utilities

In the early 2000’s, Florida’s utility companies were faced with an exploding population, increased energy consumption and a growing need for more generation capacity.  The state was facing a crisis.  Florida’s Public Service Commission, which govern the public utilities, faced a dire energy situation.  To address the problems say saw, the commissioners voted to promote energy conservation by advocating home and business owners conserving energy through the use of more efficient air conditioning, heating systems and appliances, and increase the use of solar.  To do this, the utility companies were asked to provide incentives to invest in their own future instead of simply building more generating capacity.

Florida is known for its warm, sunny climate.  With so many homes and businesses having aging air conditioning and heating systems, the most cost effective way to become more energy conscious would be to replace those aging systems with high efficiency air conditioning systems and appliances.  Additionally, Florida, known as the Sunshine State, solar was a perfect solution to reduce the states demand for more power.

The Commission ultimately voted and approved to initiate their conservation program.  Over the years, their energy rebate programs became hugely popular and proved to dramatically reduce the growing demand for power.  They were so successful in fact, that the total energy used by the state remained relatively flat.  Quietly, the stockholders of the states utility companies didn’t like how successful these programs were and decided to change this through and active lobbying effort to slash these popular programs.  It became very clear that they were more interested in selling more energy – not less.  

Florida’s Energy Conservation Decline

That all began to change with the state’s new leadership and a very active lobbying effort which put two lobbies on the payroll for every State Senator.  With new commissioners put in place with the Public Service Commission, things began to change every so obvious to those that were watching.  Their behind the scenes effort began to unfold in November of 2014 when the state’s energy rebate program for efficient central home air conditioning systems were slashed by an average of $571.  It was much worse for home solar panel rebates.  They were cut out completely.

These actions were a stark sea change in the policies discussed by Florida’s Public Service Commission in November of 2009.  At that meeting, they unanimously voted to postpone setting Florida utilities’ energy conservation goals, criticizing its own staff for not recommending more aggressive conservation standards.  But the utility lobbyist got their way and energy credits were either cut back or cut out all together.

All one needs to do is look at the pattern that followed to see a clear trend:

November 25, 2014

Florida regulators cut energy-efficiency goals, end rebates for solar panels

Florida regulators on Tuesday gave their approval for electric utilities to slash energy efficiency goals and end solar rebates to customers after 2015.

December 11, 2014

FP&L Slashes Florida’s A/C Energy Rebates – Again

Yesterday, Air Conditioning firms across the state were sent a formal letter from FP&L detailing further cuts to their Air Conditioning Energy Rebate Program – yet again !!  Effective Oct 1, 2015 (weeks away), FP&L stated that the Residential Air Conditioning program would be nearly shut down completely.

January 11, 2016

Berkun Air, along with 1,600 other air conditioning contractors in Florida, will no longer be allowed to offer FP&L energy rebates for consuming less electric.

November 8, 2016 – Election Day

Why Vote NO on Florida’s Amendment No. 1

On election day, Florida’s citizens are being asked to add an amendment to the states constitution that would dramatically limit where they buy solar power equipment and the power they generate from.  This amendment was sponsored by the states utilities firms with a goal to limit your choice.  To do this, utilities are spending a record $22 million to confuse the citizens with the language designed to mislead consumers.  You heard that right – $22 million.  That doesn’t count for the 80 lobbyist that go after the states 40 legislators.  That’s 2 lobbyist for every legislator.  And you think they have your best interests at hand – or the stockholders.  In short, the utility firms want to sell you more energy – not less -period.

Who is backing the Vote Yes on Florida's Amendment 1 ?

Who is backing the Vote Yes on Florida’s Amendment 1 ?

Florida, “the sunshine state,” ranks third in the nation after California and Texas for rooftop solar potential, but ranks 14th for cumulative solar capacity installed.  Why is that?  The public utility companies have lobbied hard to block renewable solar energy on private homes and does not allow power purchase agreements, which again would slash their demand loads.  These same utility are investing heavily to block thousands of small businesses that were eager to grow in Florida.

On Election Day, November 8, VOTE NO ON 1

Florida Utilities Spend Millions to Block Solar Choices

Why Vote NO on Florida’s Amendment No. 1

Florida’s state utilities, run by Florida Power & Light and Duke Energy, both Public Utilities, have worked behind the scenes to totally gut energy credits once in place to Florida homeowners.  Prior to the financial crash in 2008, Florida was experiencing explosive grown.  This put huge demands to grow the electrical power generation of Florida state utilities.  They knew that this was a very expensive proposition and thus, created incentives to reduce the demand for more electricity.  They did this by providing energy rebates for its customers to purchased energy efficient air conditioning systems and solar energy.

Air conditioning equipment is one of the largest consumers of electrical energy, and it was known that if they moved people to more energy efficient air conditioning systems, they would not only save a lot of money, but they would play an important part of cutting the demand for electricity.   This would delay the need for additional power germination facilities.  It worked.  Tens of thousands of homes took advantage of modern, high efficiency air conditioning systems.  The same applied to solar panels as well.  Both were very successful programs.  Too well apparently.

Currently, Florida is one of only five states in the nation that prohibits citizens from buying electricity from companies that will put solar panels on your home or business.

It seems that the stockholders of both Duke and Florida Power & Light took notice, as did the heads of both.  To counter the growing decline in power consumption, FP&L began slashing their energy credits – saying that it wasn’t fair to the poor.  This is pure nonsense.  Though higher efficiency units are more expensive, their return of investment makes them the most cost efficient to buy.  These new systems literally pay for themselves in years, instead of just throwing money down the drain.

For the past 3 years, we at Berkun Air have witnessed energy credits getting slashed.  Last year alone, FP&L cuts nearly every authorized air conditioning installer from their energy credit program, thus making it harder for homeowners to take advantage of a very popular program that was highly successful.  Additionally, we saw FP&L gut the solar panel credits that most other states promote.  These utility companies are suppose to serve as public utilities that are regulated by the States Public Utility, but in reality, these same utilities are pumping millions into the coffers of those that govern the state in on behalf of the stockholders of those utilities companies.

Florida, “the sunshine state,” ranks third in the nation after California and Texas for rooftop solar potential, but ranks 14th for cumulative solar capacity installed.  Why is that?  The public utility companies have lobbied hard to block renewable solar energy on private homes and does not allow power purchase agreements, which again would slash their demand loads.  These same utility are investing heavily to block thousands of small businesses that were eager to grow in Florida.

 

screen-shot-2016-10-21-at-5-27-42-pm

 

As chair of Florida’s House’s Committee on Energy, Kreegel was in a position to change Florida Laws that have restricted the growth of energy-producing rooftop solar panels on homes in Florida.  Guess why !!  As a self-described free-market individual, Kreegel saw the issue as getting government out of the way of a growing industry.  Well, this might be true if you are one of two of the states giant utilities, but it was a smack in the face for thousands of small business that saw a market wide open for growth and tens of thousands of new jobs in the state.  But Kreegel soon discovered that his fellow committee members wouldn’t even discuss solar energy, and the fact that he brought it up made him an outcast in Tallahassee.

According to analysis who studied campaign records by the Florida Center of Investigative Reporting showed that utility companies have sunk $12 million into the campaigns of state lawmakers since 2010 !!  It’s it outrageous that a public utility would fight for the stockholders of their firms instead of looking out for the well being of the public they serve ?  They are after all, public utilities.

ALEC’s Deceptive Smart Solar Amendment

So who is behind this initiative to block solar at the home level, not just in Florida, but at the federal level.  The American Legislative Exchange Council, also known as ALEC, a non-profit lobbying group that pushes the agendas of large corporations and drafts bills for state elected officials, it has pushed an Amendment onto the November 2016 ballot in Florida called the “Smart Solar Amendment”, or Amendment #1.  The Smart Solar Amendment is anything but smart and is attempting to charge high maintenance fees on any customer that has their own solar power.  They’re saying that rooftop solar panel consumers are freeloading off of the utility company and causing losses to their bottom line.  Well – welcome to the free market.  This simply isn’t true however and study after study has proven these to be completely false.  Solar customers actually provide a net benefit to the utility industry.

Currently, Florida is one of only five states in the nation that prohibits citizens from buying electricity from companies that will put solar panels on your home or business.  Isn’t competition suppose to be a good thing?  This literally explains why Florida is so far behind the rest of the nation.

In November of 2015, the Florida Public Service Commission approved allowing utilities to end solar rebates and gut energy efficiency goals by 90 percent, because the utilities claimed neither is “cost-effective.”  Boy was this a boom for the stockholders of the states public utility companies.

Come November 8, 2016, voters will be asked to vote on a very poorly worded Constitutional Amendment what was clearly meant to confuse voters.

Amendment 1 reads on that ballot as such:

NO. 1
CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT
ARTICLE X, SECTION 29

RIGHTS OF ELECTRICITY CONSUMERS REGARDING SOLAR ENERGY CHOICE

This amendment establishes a right under Florida’s constitution for consumers to own or lease solar equipment installed on their property to generate electricity for their own use. State and local governments shall retain their abilities to protect consumer rights and public health, safety and welfare, and to ensure that consumers who do not choose to install solar are not required to subsidize the costs of backup power and electric grid access to those who do.

The amendment is not expected to result in an increase or decrease in any revenues or cost to state and local government.  

Summary of Florida’s Constitutional Amendment

Opponents make the following arguments in opposition to Amendment 1:

  • Amendment 1 is backed by utilities and would extend their control over solar energy production while limiting customer solar production
  • Amendment 1 would potentially prohibit the practice of net metering
  • Amendment 1 is unnecessary and misleading because it would provide rights and protections that Florida residents already have.
