For more than 20 years, Gree has been providing energy efficient, dependable heating and air conditioning solutions for residential and commercial use. As the producer of one third of the world's air conditioners, Gree has established itself as a global leader and the Rio RIO18HP230V1A mini split system is their perfect solution for commercial applications where 'always on' reliability is critical. The Gree RIO18HP230V1A has a high efficiency, 16 SEER rating, making this system ideal if you are looking to provide heating and cooling for a single area or supplement existing heating and air conditioning equipment. The wall mounted indoor unit provides an attractive, compact, quiet comfort solution precisely controlled with the included wireless remote. This system will pay for itself in annual energy savings.
The RIO18HP230V1AO outdoor condenser includes Gree's DC Inverter technology to improve comfort and efficiency. This built-in inverter drives the compressor and allows it to adjust output to the heating and cooling demands of the conditioned space, ensuring a more stable, consistent temperature and comfort level. This technology will also remove moisture, reduce short-cycling, and improve the overall efficiency of your system.
Low Ambient Cooling
The Gree RIO18HP230V1A system contains the RIO18HP230V1AO outdoor condenser which allows it to operate when the outdoor temperature is as low as 5 degrees Fahrenheit.
With this RIO18HP230V1A system, you won't need to worry about harmful rapid cycling that can occur when settings and conditions change. The Rio mini split implements a 3-minute protective delay that prevents the system from restarting too soon after it has been turned off.
Dehumidify and Cool
Gree's Rio System has both a Dry Mode and an X-Fan Mode that demonstrates the RIO18HP230V1A's versatility. These provide optimal flexibility and allow for your system to adapt to changes in humidity, removing excess moisture from your indoor coil.
The airflow direction of this system's indoor unit may be set to swing between its five vertical positions. This disperses the hot or cold air evenly across your zone, resulting in consistent and thorough heating and cooling. Swing mode can be used in a variety of modes including Continuous Sweep.
The RIO18HP230V1A mini split system has a powerful operation mode. This operating mode runs your indoor unit at maximum power for up to twenty minutes or until your zone reaches the desired temperature, whichever occurs first. Powerful operation mode is great for when you need rapid cooling or heating.
Quiet Operating Mode
The RIO18HP230V1A operates quietly, it is barely noticeable. This operating design automatically adjusts airflow slightly to reduce fan noise in the unit, providing you with perfectly quiet comfort.
The RIO18HP230V1A has a unique defrost technology that helps to maintain room comfort and save money on energy by cutting out unnecessary defrost cycles. While in heating mode, frost buildup will gather until detected and will automatically engage the defrost cycle. Once the frost has been removed, indoor and outdoor fans will resume normal operation.
The RIO18HP230V1A system features a Sleep Mode that incrementally increases or decreases the unit's desired output to decrease energy use and increase savings. When heating and cooling, this mode allows your system to automatically adjust the set point a few degrees colder and hotter, respectively, during a set sleep schedule before kicking on to allow for decreased waste without any effect upon your sleep cycle.
Power Failure Mode
Gree systems like the RIO18HP230V1A are prepared to handle power interruptions without issue. Your settings and selected parameters are stored in non-voltile memory so that, if a power outage does happen, your system will be restored as if nothing happened. The units will automatically return to their most recent operating conditions.
Two-Stage Turbo Fan
In some cases, you may need to reach the desired temperature in a shorter amount of time. The RIO18HP230V1A has a Turbo Mode that allows for an ultra high speed fan to kick in. This will boost the unit's performance in both heating and cooling modes until the feature is deactivated.
Cold Blow Protection
When your RIO18HP230V1A system kicks on in heating mode, you won't have to suffer through those first few minutes of cold air being blown through your home. Instead, Gree's Rio System units are designed to monitor the air being discharged, and delays the indoor fan from running until the coil has warmed up to prevent nasty wind chills.
