Energy Efficient Climate Control
Best known for its advanced duct-free systems, LG’s commercial air conditioning products provide innovative and energy efficient climate control solutions. Expanding the company’s line of energy efficient products, LG is showcasing four new high SEER ART Cool Mirror models. These models range in efficiency from 18.9 SEER to 20 SEER and allow LG to qualify for the Federal Energy Efficiency Tax benefit.
Also on display this week in the LG booth is the company’s expanded line of Multi-V commercial systems and Flex Multi residential/light commercial products. For commercial businesses seeking to reduce energy consumption, LG is showcasing its Multi-V system, which offers a cost-efficient solution with Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) technology to ensure comfort. VRF refers to the system that controls the amount of refrigerant flowing to each evaporator of the indoor unit. Indoor evaporators are available for different capacity, configuration and individualized comfort control.
LG offers Multi-V systems that can provide simultaneous heating and cooling in different zones. With this system, commercial businesses have control of temperature zoning to avoid expending unnecessary energy in unoccupied rooms. Additions to the Multi-V line include LG’s Vertical Air Handling unit and Multi-V Water.
The LG ART Cool series of products combines artful air conditioning and climate control for an all-in-one solution that is stylish as well as functional. This week LG is showcasing its latest enhancements to the ART Cool Mirror series with new High SEER ratings and design.
The new ART Cool Mirror Single Split line features a slim rectangular wall-mounted interior evaporator with a one-way air flow system. The duct-free ART Cool Mirror Single Split is enhanced for easier installation; this includes installation support clips that allow for 25 degrees of separation from the wall without detaching the unit. A detachable bottom cover makes installation possible without having to dissemble or support the unit, this also allows for easier access to the unit’s electrical wiring. The 2011 models also include a 45 percent wider cavity* for piping, allowing for easier installation. Available in a variety of custom finishes, the ART Cool Mirror Inverter line can be fit to enhance any room’s decor.
