Growing Green Center features energy efficient HVAC
A sustainable building display at the 2015 Greenbuild Expo featured an efficient split HVAC system as part of the green technology package.
The Growing Green Center exhibit, commissioned by Baltimore nonprofit Parks & People Foundation and U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), in partnership with Building Design + Construction magazine, is a sustainable modular training center that was featured at the two-day expo.
LG is the leading technology provider for the exhibit, and one of the products on display was the “Multi V Mini” air conditioning system.
Don Troupe, LG regional sales engineer, explained the VRF technology and its benefits for a home or commercial project.
Following the show, the structure will be permanently installed in Baltimore’s Druid Hill Park, steps from the Parks & People Foundation’s LEED Platinum-registered headquarters. The Growing Green Center will serve a major role in the organization’s efforts to train local residents, students and community groups on how to revitalize their neighborhoods through landscaping, gardening and urban infrastructure projects.

Featured in the building, the LG “Multi V Mini” air conditioning system offers the benefits of LG’s flagship Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) technology to cool or heat an entire building or just a single area or room.
The system’s indoor unit provides auto changeover, self-diagnostics and useful fan speed control and sleep mode.
LG's VRF technology and home comfort solutions are making major inroads in the United States where demand for high-performance, flexible HVAC technology continues to grow. LG air conditioning systems are designed to minimize efficiency losses found in conventional HVAC systems, provide sustainable energy savings and low lifecycle costs. LG VRF systems also contribute towards LEED-certified projects and offer zone-by-zone comfort.
