Daikin’s VRV with Certified Reclaimed Refrigerant Allocation VRV acclaimed ‘best renewable product’


Daikin’s VRV IV+ Heat Recovery with Certified Reclaimed Refrigerant Allocation has won the Architects’ Choice product award for ‘Best renewable product’. Daikin’s unique concept that reuses existing, yet certified reclaimed refrigerant was acknowledged for the effort the manufacturer has made in creating a circular economy of refrigerants with the support of its specialised network of installers.

The Architects’ Choice award is a much sought-after accolade and a recognised mark of quality and value within the broader construction sector. The Awards are part of Architecture Expo, which is the largest and all-encompassing architecture and building expo in Ireland, attracting over 500 exhibitors and 200,000 visitors annually.

The Expo provides a showcase for concrete products, energy solutions, building systems, electrical products and many more design and architecture related solutions while bringing together the country’s top architects, architectural technologists and other professionals and specifiers.

The Architect’s Choice

VRV IV+ Heat Recovery with Certified Reclaimed Refrigerant Allocation was the Architects Choice for ‘Best renewable product’, recognised for taking heat pumps to the next level. Not only do heat pumps mainly use renewable energy from the air to heat and cool buildings, this VRV unit also reuses existing refrigerant to cut the production of over 150,000 kgs of virgin refrigerant each year.

George Dimou, product manager for VRV systems for Daikin Europe says:

“We are proud to receive this acknowledgement from one of our key stakeholder groups, the architects. It confirms a shift in the construction sector to a more sustainable way of building in which we intend to be at the forefront. This is just the first step for us in becoming the manufacturer with the lowest CO2 equivalent footprint and in leading our industry to a sustainable future. Look out for further developments from us over the coming months!”
