LG claimed an industry first with the launch of its VRF 5-ton single-phase heat recovery unit in the USA this week.
The VRF (variable refrigerant flow) unit is new to the Korean company's range of Multi V S outdoor units, which is ideal for the domestic and light commercial applications. The 5-ton unit complements their existing 2-ton heat pump and 5-ton heat recovery units. The units will interest air conditioning engineers looking for energy efficiency and simultaneous heating and cooling which can cope with extreme weather.
The new Multi V S models include scroll compressors which have a greater operating speed range, which means engineers can match compressor speed with demand more efficiently. In turn, that means better efficiency and lower energy costs.
