WASHINGTON, May 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- By expanding its already popular Art Cool(TM) duct-free system, LG Electronics, an award-winning worldwide HVAC solutions provider, reached new levels of energy efficiency compared to previous generations of Art Cool, increasing options available to architects seeking responsible, green HVAC systems.
LG's new High Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rated (SEER) Art Cool wall-mounted models have industry-leading SEER ratings built into a new, elegantly styled model that allows for increased airflow throughout the room. The 12K BTU/h offers SEER up to 26 and the 9K model offers up to 28 SEER, contributing to the unmatched power of LG's most recent addition to the Art Cool Family.*
"Whether through our duct-free systems or our VRF technology, LG Electronics is pushing the industry forward when it comes to energy efficiency," said Kevin McNamara, vice president, Commercial Air Conditioning, LG Electronics USA. "We're looking to develop the most efficient, innovative products that deliver energy benefits alongside powerful heating and air conditioning."
The new addition to the Art Cool family has been improved with an optimized 4-way swing airflow, allowing for a 6-step vertical vane, 5-step horizontal louver and a 16° horizontal current disperse air effectively in any environment. It also offers powerful heating options, with up to 39ft of powerful airflow and a 70-degree vertical airflow to compliment the new three-column heat exchanger, which uses tubes of varying diameter to reduce loss of heat and dramatically enhance the heating power.
LG engineers have also redesigned the fan, increasing size by 25% while adding a 15-degree angle to the blades to reduce surface pressure, reducing noise levels and causing the model to operate incredibly quietly. At its lowest, LG's newest Art Cool resounds at only 17dB, far lower than the ambient noise in an average library. Complementing the unobtrusive noise levels is an innovative design featuring a honeycomb air inlet across the top and an LED display on the right, combining high style with high-powered technology for an elegant solution with industry-leading efficiency.
