ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J. — LG Electronics USA has announced the United States availability of the LG Multi V Water IV water-source unit, a new variable refrigerant flow (VRF) HVAC system that comes in two configurations: heat pump and heat recovery. Both systems can accommodate up to 64 thermal zones with technology that allows the user to pipe farther, reaching distant areas of a building, said LG. The systems eliminate the need for additional units and provide designers with engineering flexibility.

According to the company, the Multi V Water IV water-source units are designed to provide smaller space requirements and reduced piping needs, reducing the overall construction and material cost of the building and allowing more leasable space for the owner.

The Multi V Water IV operates with the latest inverter technology, with its scroll compressor optimized to maximize compressor energy efficiency, which significantly reduces power consumption by delivering an appropriate amount of cooling to all indoor units. Precise refrigerant volume delivery allows occupants to remain comfortable while lowering utility costs and enhancing energy savings, said LG.

The Multi V Water IV systems also are designed to operate at low sound levels. The units are said to be ideal for offices, condos, hotels, schools, and both new construction and retrofits.

“These new water source systems exemplify how LG continues to drive HVAC innovation and quality with flexible VRF solutions that cater to the needs of building owners and designers,” said Kevin McNamara, vice president of commercial air conditioning. “Building on our broad line of other Multi V IV products, the Multi V Water IV provides designers with another way to reduce engineering costs and maintain incredible energy savings for their customers.”
