The Daikin Difference

Daikin® is a global leader, innovator and provider of advanced air conditioning solutions for residential, commercial and industrial applications. Behler-Young Company is the exclusive Michigan distributor of Daikin® products. For more than 80 years, Daikin® has consistently strived to expand the boundaries of their knowledge through extensive research and by creating environment-friendly products. Today, not only is Daikin® revolutionizing the way contractors think about air conditioning, they have also revolutionized the way Behler-Young thinks of mini splits.

B-Y uses Daikin as the answer when there is a problem application that needs a creative solution. Daikin is great for spot cooling. If you are trying to heat a four season residential porch or a hard to heat room - Daikin is the answer. Daikin®’s intelligent, reliable, efficient and flexible systems can deliver Absolute Comfort™ to practically any building of any shape, size or age. The Daikin VRV system is ideal for multi-floor offices, schools, hotels, hospitals and other commercial applications. SkyAir is the ultimate solution for restaurants, shops and small offices, and the VRV-S® is perfect for a wide range of light commercial and residential needs. From compact outdoor units to concealed indoor units, Daikin’s products are designed with super-functional features that run efficiently and with little noise, creating just the right environment every time.

Daikin® is the only company in the world dedicated to manufacturing both air conditioning systems and refrigerants. By creating some of the most technologically and aesthetically sophisticated systems ever introduced, Daikin is redefining the experience of comfort. This passion for precision means that every Daikin system — from SkyAir to VRV® — delivers maximum performance and the ultimate in Absolute Comfort™.

System Benefits

  • Flexible Design
  • Energy Savings
  • Individual control
  • Space Savings
  • Easy System Setup
  • Save Time on Installation
  • One Supplier

INVERTER-driven compressor systems use only the exact amount of energy needed to cool or heat an area, so you can save energy and money while enjoying complete control over your comfort year-round.

VRV is a commercially applied air-conditioning and heating system that distributes refrigerant, rather than water, to multiple fan coil units in the conditioned spaces.

The Features of VRV:

  • Energy Efficiency
  • Configuration in many zones possible (individual control - up to 41 zones on one piping network)
  • Centralized system (long piping - up to 3,280 ft. total)
  • Tight control (with Proportional Integral Derivative, variable speed "Inverter" compressors, electronic expansion valves)
  • Large capacity (modular systems combination)
  • High level control (BACnet®, LONWorks, Intelligent Manager, Intelligent Touch Controller)
  • Quiet operation (down to 25dB(A) indoor)
  • Superior heating performance
  • Absolute comfort

With these attributes, VRV naturally competes/positions wherever traditional chilled water systems are desired. It has all the benefits of a high-end chilled water system within a single-provider package eliminating the need for large plant rooms and external equipment such as large ductwork, pumps, water pipes.

Daikin provides a complete engineered solution including outdoor units (condensers - including compressors and heat exchangers) and indoor fan coil units (in many different sizes and styles) as well as the controls. When comparing the Daikin VRV system to a chilled water plant, it is obvious to realize the ease of installation, the cost reduction of ancillary equipment, the space and layout benefits and no need of structural reinforcement.

The VRV systems integrates cutting-edge inverter technology to give you total control over your entire building. The intelligent inverter system gives added control over the rotational speed of the compressor, which allows the amount of refrigerant flowing in the system to vary depending upon fluctuating needs. This delivers maximum efficiency during partial load conditions and provides precise temperature control in all zones.

By using inverter technology, Daikin compressors run continuously at a minimum variable speed that matches the capacity of the current load. By running the compressor continuously rather than ON/OFF, the room experiences better dehumidification and the compressor incurs less stress.
