LG Multi-V IV VRF air conditioning systems now certified in all 50 states
August 10, 2016
LG Electronics USA announced that its Multi-V IV variable refrigerant flow (VRF) air-source systems have been certified to exceed California’s stringent seismic building requirements. The company said these air conditioning systems are now certified in all 50 states.
As the American market becomes more familiar with variable refrigerant flow (VRF) systems, it’s discovering firsthand the technology’s ability to deliver exceptional comfort with lower life cycle costs. Additionally, contractors are touting the ability to perform maintenance on systems individually, allowing them to fix a problem without disrupting the comfort delivered to the remainder of the facility.
VRF systems can achieve up to 30 percent HVAC energy cost savings relative to minimally code-conventional-compliant systems or older inefficient systems across a range of building types, according to the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. In addition to energy savings, VRF systems offer flexibility, cost-effective installation, and greater comfort for end users.
