ALPHARETTA, Ga., May 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- LG Electronics USA announced today an updated portfolio of Packaged Terminal Air Conditioner (PTAC) solutions for the hotel and hospitality market, with an Energy Efficiency Rating (EER) of up to 13.3, the highest rating now available in the category.
LG's reliable new line of PTAC products includes 6 updated models offering a range of capacity options to meet the needs of a rapidly expanding hospitality market. The 208-230V Heating & Cooling models are available up to 7,300, 9,500, 12,200, 15,100 Btu/h capacities with EER ranging from 11.2 (15,100 Btu/h model) up to 13.3 (7,300 Btu/h model). The 265V Heating & Cooling Models include 9,700 Btu/h and 12,200 Btu/h models, with EER up to 12.8 and 11.9, respectively. 6 new LG Packaged Terminal Heat Pump (PTHP) models also are available for each voltage and capacity.
"LG continues to develop HVAC solutions to meet the unique requirements of hospitality settings and multi-room properties, especially as demand for more effective, targeted temperature control increases and operators seek smarter, more energy efficient solutions to satisfy guest needs," said Kevin McNamara, vice president, Commercial Air Conditioning, LG Electronics USA. "Our broad new PTAC lineup responds to market demand for a higher efficiency solution, which was previously generally available through expensive energy management systems, while further enhancing performance, quality and reliability with core components designed and built by LG."
Industry differentiators for the new product line include an updated compressor – designed and manufactured by LG – for higher efficiency levels, combined with Dual Brushless Digitally Controlled (BLDC) motors on interior and exterior of unit and an innovative cross flow fan to further increase performance levels with decreased noise levels.
With sound pressure ratings as low as 45 dBA (IDU) and 61 dBA (ODU), PTAC models from LG greatly reduce both in-room and exterior noise levels compared with traditional multi-room HVAC systems.
LG's PTAC portfolio incorporates a range of additional benefits for hotel operators, facility managers and service technicians, including:
- Positive Temperature Coefficient (PTC) Ceramic heaters for safer and more effective heat distribution, without emitting common odors associated with heaters manufactured using alternate materials (available on 208V-230V models)
- Gold FinTM anti-corrosion treatment on condenser coil on all models, providing an efficient and highly effective protection while extending product lifespan
- Enhanced controls and user-friendly display, including timer and Energy Saving Mode
