NEW YORK, June 21, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Air conditioning technologies innovator LG Electronics is bringing architects, engineers and contractors the utmost in design flexibility and installation versatility for modern building projects with its next-generation air conditioning and control systems showcased at the American Institute of Architects (AIA) 2018 Conference on Architecture Expo, taking place in New York, June 21-23 (Booth #1823).

Efficient, Streamlined Systems and Advanced Controls Featured at AIA Expo Elevate Design and Functionality of Today’s Modern Buildings

Spotlighting how advances in HVAC technologies give architects new creative design solutions, AIA Expo marks the premiere of the latest video case study in LG's Project Profile Series, featuring the upscale boutique Marlton Hotel in Lower Manhattan. The unique project features LG's award-winning LG Multi V™ VRF system, known for its incredible energy efficiency, high performance and flexibility in design and installation options. It was selected for the architecturally-significant Marlton Hotel, based on design versatility and overall efficiency as well as the ability to provide occupants the freedom to control their precise comfort level.

LG's VRF system helped preserve the architectural integrity and charm of the original, intricate design details of the nine-story structure such as herringbone-wood floors, crown molding, marble bathrooms and brass fixtures. The system also maximized space utilization, a key criterion from the building owners, allowing the Marlton to create an open, airy rooftop space for guests to enjoy in the heart of Greenwich Village.

"LG is dedicated to advancing the HVAC industry with limitless vision, innovative technology and flexible connectivity solutions for today's modern residential and commercial building projects, all of which are featured at this year's AIA Expo," said Kevin McNamara, senior vice president, Air Conditioning Technologies, LG Electronics USA. "LG's unparalleled commitment to providing cutting-edge technology, along with the tools and resources to deliver a complete, end-to-end solution to our architect, engineer and contractor partners, is our top priority."

AIA Expo highlights LG's leadership in commercial, light commercial and residential air conditioning systems including variable refrigerant flow (VRF) technology, customizable control systems and powerful new heating capabilities and design tools.

Innovative LG Indoor and Outdoor Technology Solutions

LG Multi V™ 5
The flagship product in LG's state-of-the-art air-source VRF systems, the Multi V 5, represents the next generation in the popular LG Multi V family. The LG Multi V 5 is available from 6- to 42-tons, with a choice of three-phase 208V, 230V or 460V electrical power as heat recovery/heat pump outdoor units. New to the Multi V line-up are the single frame 16-, 18-, and 20-ton units; the 20-ton unit representing the largest tonnage in the smallest, single frame footprint on the market today. As a smaller and lighter solution, the Multi V 5 20-ton not only reduces footprint requirements, but also helps to reduce installation costs.

While the footprint of the Multi V 5 is reduced, its performance has increased. Building on the Smart Load Control of the Multi V IV, the Multi V 5 features Advanced Smart Load Control that proactively addresses the impact of pending weather changes ensuring optimal comfort for all of the building occupants. The Multi V 5 also features LG Intelligent Heating technology that defrosts as needed rather than responding once frost has reached a preset point. On top of active response capabilities, the Multi V 5 also features a new biomimetic fan design that draws from nature's design and enables the unit to operate more efficiently and increase airflow while reducing the perceived noise level by approximately 20 percent.

LG Multi V™ S
Capitalizing on the success of the U.S. market's first single-phase VRF 5-ton heat recovery system, LG is launching the 5-ton single-phase VRF heat pump counterpart for the Multi V S line. LG is showcasing the Multi V S, a compact, 5-ton heat recovery unit that operates single-phase power, designed to provide excellent energy efficiency and the versatility of simultaneous heating and cooling. Requiring only single-phase power, the 5-ton Multi V S now offers home and business owners across the country more energy-efficient air conditioning options than ever before.

LG Multi F and Multi F MAX
At the core of LG's AIA Expo residential and light commercial display is the Multi F series, including the Multi F and the LG Multi F MAX outdoor unit, which are now available with LGRED° heat technology. The single-phase, outdoor unit connects up to eight individual indoor units and allows occupants to condition each individual room or space.
