ALPHARETTA, Ga., Oct. 31, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Air conditioning industry leader LG Electronics USA today introduced the industry's first single-phase VRF (variable refrigerant flow) 5-ton heat recovery system for the U.S. market as part of the company's expanded line-up of energy-efficient LG Multi V S outdoor units.
Perfect for residential and light commercial installations, the LG Multi V S lineup now includes 2-ton heat pump and 5-ton heat recovery models designed to provide excellent energy efficiency and the versatility of simultaneous heating and cooling, even in the most extreme weather.
With the addition of 2- and 5-ton Multi V S models, LG now offers homeowners and business owners across the country more energy-efficient air conditioning options than ever before. The new models include a scroll compressor with an increased range of operating speed. This allows the system to closely match compressor speed with demand, which translates to higher efficiency and lower energy bills.
The expansion of the Multi V S lineup to include a 5-ton heat recovery unit provides for simultaneous cooling and heating capabilities and allows for independent control of room temperatures for up to 12 zones. Coupled with automatic changeover between heating and cooling modes, the versatility of comfort control is now effortless for property owners.
"At LG, we strive to provide the most efficient and innovative air conditioning systems for any number of applications – from one-room solutions to the largest buildings," said Kevin McNamara, senior vice president, Air Conditioning Systems, LG Electronics USA. "Our expanded line of Multi V S outdoor units further solidifies LG as an HVAC industry leader, as we continue introducing a growing range of residential and commercial systems."
The Multi V S system utilizes single-phase power so it can be used residentially as well as in a wide range of commercial applications, offering overall increased flexibility and efficiency for property owners. For additional adaptability, the Multi V S units require little to no ductwork, resulting in smaller space requirements and allowing for higher ceilings, less structural impact and more usable square footage.
LG's new 5-ton heat recovery model boasts a slim, compact footprint with a height of less than five feet further reducing the space requirements for installation. The Multi V S lineup is compatible with LG's full line of indoor units including Art Cool Mirror, Art Cool Gallery, wall-mounted units, and vertical/horizontal air handlers.
LG will be showcasing its latest collection of innovative air conditioning systems, including indoor and outdoor units, controls and software, at AHR Expo 2017 (booth #C1330), Jan. 30-Feb. 1 in Las Vegas. For more information, visit www.lghvac.com.
