LG Electronics launches environmentally friendly air conditioners
Global air conditioning firm LG has introduced new eco-friendly technology for the Middle East.
Global manufacturer LG Electronics has introduced a range of environmentally friendly air conditioners to the Middle East.
Tropical Multi V is designed specifically to cope with the environmental conditions experienced in the region. Based on variable refrigerant flow (vrf) technology, the products have been proven to use up to 70% less electricity than conventional air conditioning systems.
The units can provide heating and cooling simultaneously and the latest models launched are particularly suited for hotels, hospitals and buildings where space-specific temperature control is needed. The Multi V system is also suited to high-rise developments as pipe-runs of up to 100m can be used, enabling a 30-storey building to be served from a single outdoor plant area. The technology can be integrated with building management systems for additional energy saving capabilities.
The move is the latest step by LG to support the increased emphasis on green buildings in the region. LG Electronics president K W Kim commented: "LG believes in an holistic approach towards creating green buildings, rather than putting together a bunch of eco-friendly solutions to express environmental credentials we work hand-in-hand with developers at the construction stage to ensure that the buildings can sustain the complete life cycle. We believe that we can achieve this through better design and technology."
