LG Electronics USA is streamlining the process of securing HVAC installation configuration certification in Florida by certifying a number of wind load complaint drawings for LG variable refrigerant flow (VRF) and duct-free split (DFS) outdoor-condensing units.
While final installation designs must still be approved by a Florida licensed and registered professional engineer, these approvals will allow contractors to select the drawing that works for their design, while removing a step of the potentially long process.
The State of Florida, frequently in the "Cone of Probability" for hurricanes, has implemented strict wind load requirements for HVAC installations to ensure safety and building stability. LG's certified wind load compliant installation drawings for VRF and DFS condensing units address Florida's building codes that require HVAC installations to meet county wind load minimums.
LG certified drawings are available for: Roof mount at 128/109/105/95 psf; Ground mount at 82/73/60/38 psf; Wall mount at 128/114 psf for Zones 4 and 5
These drawings can be found on LG’s website.
