launch of the new VRV IV heat pump system which is optimized for total Life
cycle cost (LCC) and the first VRV to be assembled in North America.

VRV heating and cooling systems are used throughout the world in commercial,
industrial and residential applications. Daikin was the first company to
design and install a VRV system in Japan in1982. From that date it has
continued to set some of the highest performance standards in the HVAC
industry. Until now, North American installations of VRV systems relied on
imported systems.

Daikin, one of the world's largest manufacturers of indoor heating, cooling
and refrigerant products made the announcement at the company's newly expanded
residential cooling products and commercial VRV manufacturing facility. The
announcement has a positive economic impact in the Houston community with the
addition of over 250 jobs.

VRV products are modular, commercially applied heating and cooling systems
that provide energy efficiency, individual user control and reliability in one
integrated system.

Daikin's VRV IV heat pumps have set the standard again by offering up three
main attributes to further optimize the total LCC of the system: variable
refrigerant temperature control, larger capacity single modules and systems
and a configurator designed for simplified commissioning and servicing of the

The variable refrigerant temperature auto climate adjustment technology allows
the VRV IV to deliver up to a 28% increase in seasonal energy efficiency
operation compared to traditional VRV heat pump systems. This feature allows
continuous adjustment of the VRV IV refrigerant temperature as determined by
the total required heating or cooling capacity of the unit coupled with
outdoor weather conditions.

The larger capacity single modules and systems allow for a more flexible
design and provide the opportunity to reduce electrical requirements, piping
connections and outdoor unit mounting fixtures, all of which positively impact
the overall installed cost of a VRV system.

The VRV IV configurator is a software package that allows for the remote
configuration of operational settings that can then be used at several
installation sites. The result is less time and labor spent preparing and
programing the unit settings to achieve optimal performance. Further, this
software helps to reduce the time required for ongoing maintenance of the
system. The configurator allows access to operational data and error codes,
if any, using a graphical interface during routine servicing of the VRV IV

Daikin's VRV IV heat pump systems, assembled in Houston, will be sold through
a growing network of sales associates across North America.

With the addition of VRV IV heat pump systems, the Daikin brand will be one of
the most extensive lines of heating and cooling systems in North America. The
product line will extend from ductless systems for residential use, ducted
systems for residential and commercial use, packaged products for residential
and commercial installations, and VRV systems for commercial, industrial and
residential installations.
