LG Electronics USA has 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 lineup of energy-efficient LG Multi V S outdoor units.
Targeting 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 energy efficiency and versatility with simultaneous heating and cooling, according to a release from the company.
With the addition of 2- and 5-ton Multi V S models, LG offers homeowners and business owners more energy-efficient air conditioning options. 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, LG says.
The expansion of the Multi V S lineup to include a 5-ton heat recovery unit 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.
