Local air conditioner company Air Control has become the first such business to install a Trane Variable Refrigerant Flow system in an Arizona home. It was just as complicated as it sounds, according to Air Control founder Jim Jensen.
The installation took place at a multimillion-dollar lakefront home three months ago, and included two outdoor units and seven air handlers.
“With the elevations in the home, like 22-foot ceilings in the great room and 12-foot ceilings in the master, it really got to the point where there was no way to duct the systems with only two systems and do zoning without changing the interior of the wood architecture,” Jensen said.
Air Control employees determined that the VRF was the only system that could accommodate the structure, while staying relatively quiet during operation.
The VRF differs from traditional air conditioning in its use of small-diameter pipes to move cooled or heated air through the interior of a structure, with additional fans to move the air through each room.
“If you are a contractor who likes to shortcut, this is not the type of system you want to deal with,” Jensen said. “It is something that has really taken off for us. It’s something that the competition doesn’t do.”
