All Hitachi VRF indoor units, controls and gateway products are fully compatible with new water source systems for maximum design flexibility. The unified water source units can be used as heat pump and heat recovery units. They are available in 208/230V and 460V in 22 different capacities. Inverter compressor technology achieves high energy efficiency. The AHRI-certified efficiency ratings for the new Hitachi Water Source VRF systems include:

  • Integrated Energy Efficiency Ratio (IEER) of 18.9 to 29
