Mini splits deliver style and whole-home comfort
As the technology grows from single-unit solutions to units that can support multiple rooms, mini splits are becoming more of a whole-home option.
At the 2015 AHR Expo, Marc Zipfel, Director, product marketing & planning for LG Electronics USA, discussed the growth of mini split systems for residential use, and some of the technologies that are leading to greater adoption in the U.S. marketplace. Zipfel said LG has expanded its Multi V IV air source range to include nominal 38-, 40- and 42-ton outdoor unit models. The units will be available in triple-frame configurations, with the 42-ton model being the only triple frame 42-ton VRF unit available in the United States.
As part of the trend to whole-home mini split installations, The LG signature ART COOL Gallery indoor unit is now a part of the Multi V product line, expanding the design options for residential and commercial applications. The Multi V indoor units are also equipped with auto operation, self diagnostics, sleep mode and a timer, offering personalized comfort for the end-user.
