5 Reasons Why VRV Air Conditioning is Perfect for Your Home or Office

Let T.F. O’Brien help determine whether
VRV AC is right for you

516.488.1800

When you need an energy-efficient cooling option for your home or business, you may want to consider variable refrigerant volume (VRV) air conditioning. These systems offer targeted air conditioning for your home or office, and are built with advanced technology that allows them to be highly energy efficient and to provide optimal cooling for your space. Of course, VRV has several benefits that you’ll enjoy for your home or office.

Here are five reasons why you should consider installing VRV air conditioning:

1. It’s efficient.

When you choose to install VRV air conditioning in your home or office, you can look forward to energy savings. They circulate only the minimum amount of refrigerant needed. And, they offer individual climate control of air conditioning zones. This means they use less energy – and that will save you money in the long run on your utility bills.

2. It requires little to no ductwork.

VRV systems are engineered to minimize or eliminate the need for ductwork. When you install one of these air conditioning systems, you won’t have to deal with the mess and hassle of adding ductwork to your home. And, because VRV systems operate without the need for additional ductwork, they’re perfect for spaces like additions, converted attics and finished basements.

3. It’s easy to design and install.

You won’t have to worry about your home or office being a construction zone for weeks when you choose to have a VRV air conditioning system installed. Designing these systems is simple because there is a wide selection of units available, ensuring that each particular unit installed is suited to its environment. And, because installation is simpler than with traditional air conditioning systems, you won’t have the mess and weeks of construction.

4. It requires little maintenance.

VRV systems require little maintenance and are highly reliable. As long as you get the annual maintenance on your VRV air conditioning system as you would a traditional system, you should notice amazing reliability, energy efficiency and cooling effectiveness from the moment of installation and for years to come.

5. It’s readily available from T.F. O’Brien.

When you work with T.F. O’Brien, you’ll have access to our full lineup of air conditioning products and services, including VRV air conditioning. You can count on our highly skilled technicians to install your VRV system to perfection. We ensure our technicians are trained in all the latest technologies, so we’re able to provide you with quality products and expert installation. We trust Daikin® to provide our customers with the very best in variable refrigerant volume air conditioning systems for their homes and offices.

Unless Frosty Works for You, You Need Commercial Heating

You know your employees and customers complain when the air conditioning system isn’t keeping your business cool enough in the summer. They’ll also be unhappy when winter’s chill hits and the heating system isn’t up to snuff. Chances are, you don’t have snow people on your payroll. So, you’ll need to make sure your commercial space is adequately heated once the snow starts flying. What are some factors you need to take into account when heating your building?

Your top priority should be effective and efficient HVAC design for your building. You might be thinking, “Wait! I thought the top priority was customer and employee comfort!” Well, a properly designed HVAC system will allow for the right commercial heating in your space – and that will lend itself to that comfort everyone desires. According to the National Institute of Building Sciences, HVAC systems account for 39 percent of the energy used in commercial buildings in the United States. They offer that the use of high-performance HVAC equipment can provide both energy efficiency and cost effectiveness, and when coupled with whole building design considerations, improved comfort and indoor air quality will naturally follow.

It sounds like commercial heating is complicated, but it doesn’t have to be.

Of course, commercial heating and building design can get complex. And if you’re not in the HVAC business, the chances are pretty good you’re going to rely on an expert to help you. At T.F. O’Brien, we never want you to have to worry about heating or cooling your building. We are highly trained HVAC professionals with the credentials you can count on for your commercial heating needs. Our technicians don’t just come into your business and install a boiler; we have engineers on staff that take your whole building into account before recommending the appropriate commercial heating installation for your space. We offer complete commercial heating services for both boilers and furnaces, including installation and repair.

And, once winter disappears we won’t – we also offer the best commercial cooling products and services as well. We’re pleased to offer a full range of commercial services including:

With the right commercial heating, your employees won’t have to wear parkas in the office – and will be much more productive than they would be shivering around the coffee maker all day. And the more productive your employees, the better it is for your bottom line.

For the best commercial heating services for your business or organization, count on T.F. O’Brien to meet your needs. We’re pleased to service all of Long Island, including Nassau County, Suffolk County and Brooklyn.

The Right Commercial HVAC Equals Goldilocks-Approved Workplace Temperatures

Once upon a time, workplaces all across the United States were too hot. One day, a gentle inventor named Willis Carrier came along. He created a new machine that could keep spaces nice and cool. That helped workers feel more comfortable and work more productively. But, Mr. Wooly Suit, the head of the office, felt too warm in his heavy clothes and decided to turn the air conditioning way down. Suddenly, most people in the office weren’t comfortable at all. They were too cold! What would it take for everyone at the office to work their best and feel just right? 

It isn’t a fairytale – it’s a likely story in most workplaces. Temperatures are either too hot or too cold – and rarely just right. Of course, you can’t please all the people all the time. But how can you ensure your commercial HVAC system does its job and provides the optimal comfort levels for productivity? In an article on the ThoughtCo. website, it is suggested that many factors besides simple cooling or heating should be taken into account when adjusting office temperatures.

First of all, the article suggests that many of the ideas about office temperature are outdated. Original studies on commercial HVAC were completed at a time when more men than women worked at offices. Many of the men regularly wore heavy suits to work, made from fabrics like wool that weren’t very breathable. As a result, ideal temperatures hovered between 68ºF and 72ºF. Those temperatures might have been perfect for commercial spaces in the 1950s and 1960s. But as more women entered the workforce, and clothing for the office changed, those office temperatures probably should have increased.

A 2015 study changed the way people think about temperatures in commercial spaces.

According to the article, a 2015 study concluded that there are numerous factors companies should take into consideration when it comes to commercial HVAC in their building. The study found that women tend be more susceptible to the cold than men are. And, the colder people feel, the more likely it is they’ll concentrate on ways they can warm up – rather than their work. Also, office settings are much different than they once were. Modern offices are more open, with larger windows and higher ceilings. All of this leads to air temperatures that are a lot different now than they were back in the day of the cubicle.

So what’s the right temperature for my office?

Studies suggest that temperatures that hover between 73ºF and 77ºF may be just right for most office workers, both during the summer and winter months. Having a commercial HVAC system that has been sized appropriately for your building and that uses a programmable thermostat is the best way you can ensure office temperatures are optimal for productivity year-round. That’s why you need the commercial HVAC team at T.F. O’Brien.

We are proud to offer a wide range of solutions for your commercial HVAC needs. Heating and cooling your space, as well as the proper sizing and controls, are all within your reach when you choose us to help. We want you, your employees and your clients to live happily ever after. Just call us at 516-488-1800, and we’ll help you ensure that your office space is not too hot, not too cold… but just right.
