Industry-Leading VRF Technologies, Energy Efficient Heat Pump Systems, IAQ Solutions
and Flexible Controls Headline Offerings at World’s Largest HVAC Conference
SEOUL, Feb 2, 2022– Air conditioning technologies leader LG Electronics (LG) is showcasing its robust 2022 lineup of commercial, light commercial and residential HVAC solutions – including industry-leading Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) technology, latest energy efficient heat pump systems, indoor air quality solutions and flexible building automation and connectivity products – this week at the 2022 AHR Expo in Las Vegas.
One of the key highlights is the official debut of LG’s Inverter Scroll Heat Pump Chiller (ISHPC). Bringing innovation to the air-cooled chiller category, the LG ISHPC utilizes inverter technology to provide hot and cold water for both comfort and process applications, delivering powerful performance without sacrificing quiet operation, flexibility or energy efficiency. By marrying key design attributes of VRF technology with chilled water production, LG raises the standard for air-cooled chillers with a robust set of high-performance features, providing engineers with a flexible, cost-effective and properly sized solution for air-source heat Pump heating and cooling. In tandem with the market’s growing trend towards electrification, the high heating low ambient performance of the new LG ISHPC is a viable engineering solution that meets hot water heating requirements while supporting a carbon reducing strategy.
“After many months, we’re excited to join the industry in returning to AHR Expo – both virtually and in-person,” said Steve Scarbrough, senior vice president, Air Conditioning Technologies, LG Electronics USA. “We’re looking forward to sharing LG’s latest offerings and product innovations in air quality, electrification and smart connectivity as we exhibit our most innovative lineup of industry-leading tools for commercial and residential applications, this year and beyond.”
Attendees of the world’s largest industry trade show for HVAC engineers, contractors, distributors and other trade professionals visiting LG’s booth #N7906 can interact with the latest LG air conditioning technologies and award-winning products and controls.
In addition to the LG Inverter Scroll Heat Pump Chiller, AHR attendees can expect to see the following solutions:
