LG Expands HVAC Vertical Air Handling Line with New 4-Way Installation Capability
ALPHARETTA, Ga. – LG Electronics USA Air Conditioning Technologies has expanded its line of vertical air handling units (VAHUs), providing seamless solutions to integrate into a variety of ducted residential and light commercial applications. The new VAHU units feature a number of upgrades, most notably four-way installation capabilities, offering contractors even more design flexibility and further expanding LG’s vast portfolio of functional and energy-efficient HVAC solutions.
With four-way installation, the new LG VAHUs can be installed vertically, horizontally from the left and right, or inverted with a down flow conversion kit, affording contractors flexible installation options for virtually any project. For homeowners, the new models include a factory-installed LG Dry Contact to easily connect a third-party thermostat. The new VAHUs are also Wi-Fi capable giving homeowners the ability to control their air conditioning system using the LG SmartThinQTM app alongside their other LG Wi-Fi enabled products.
“LG strives to provide high-performing, energy-efficient technologies to create a more seamless installation process and improved ownership experience,” said Kevin McNamara, senior vice president, Air Conditioning Technologies, LG Electronics USA. “LG is the industry leader in HVAC innovation, and with the expanded VAHU line, we’re making integration into traditional infrastructure even easier, allowing homeowners to enjoy the benefits of inverter technology without overhauling their entire system.”
The new LG VAHU lineup includes 18, 24, 36, 42, and 48 Btu/h capacities in one-to-one configurations with the 18, 24, and 36 options also compatible as part of a multi-system with the LG Multi F and LG Multi F Max outdoor units. The new models also feature an Electronically Commutated Motor (ECM) making them eligible for a number of regional and local rebates. Rounding out the upgrades, the VAHUs feature both temperature and pressure sensors, enabling them to reach set temperature up to 30 percent faster in cooling mode than traditional systems, which only leverage a temperature sensor.
The expanded line of LG VAHUs is available for order now. For more information, please visit www.lghvac.com.
