VRV Air Conditioning

Parque da Corcovada apartments are fitted with VRV Air Conditioning.  The advantage of VRV units is that they are practically silent in operation and there are no unsightly condenser units on the balconies.  In addition cooling temperature is reached very quickly.  We ask our guests to keep doors and windows closed while using air conditioning, which increases efficiency, reduces costs and allows you to do your bit for Global Warming

The technical bit

The VRV system reaches optimum temperature more quickly than conventional systems.  It is able to maintain a constant temperature because it has variable condenser motors, which reacts to the demand required. 

Conventional systems have motors which operate at a constant output, they cool to a cooler temperature than that required, then switch off until the temperature rises to a warmer temperature, and then switch on again...
