New refrigerant solution for buildings from LG to save users up to 25% in energy costs

LG Electronics (LG) has announced the launch of the new Multi V I, a Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) solution equipped with the company’s highly evolved AI engine.

Equipped with advanced AI software, the company’s new, high-efficiency VRF solution is aimed at delivering a smarter, more comfortable indoor environment and a quieter outdoor environment – all year round. It is made suitable for mid- to high-rise buildings, such as offices, schools, shopping malls, and apartment buildings or hotels.

Giving his remarks while announcing the new solution, James Lee, head of the Air Solution Business Unit at LG Electronics Home Appliance & Air Solution Company, said: “We are glad to have marked this milestone. As a firm, it is our commitment to continue to deliver complete air solutions leveraging our cutting-edge AI and industry-leading HVAC technologies. With the Multi V I, we hope our customers can save more energy and enjoy a more conducive environment”.

AI Smart Care

On energy saving, the MultiV has a sophisticated AI engine that enables AI Smart Care, which leverages spatial and situational learning to optimize operation; adjusting cooling or heating power according to several variables, including the number of people in the room, humidity levels, and indoor and outside ambient temperature.

This enables the product to improve energy savings by up to 24.7 percent. Meanwhile, AI Indoor Space Care helps maintain a steady temperature and reduce energy consumption by automatically turning on indoor units in occupied areas, and turning them off in unoccupied areas.

AI Energy Management

Besides, it is embedded with an AI Energy Management feature that allows users to set energy consumption targets, which can help to lower the overall power usage of the Multi V I.

Noise Target Control

The AI engine also helps to enhance the comfort of those living in neighboring apartments or houses. Users can set an operational noise limit (from 50 to 70 decibels2) in advance to ensure that the sound produced by the outdoor unit does not exceed the level of volume they’ve specified.

Weather Information Interlocking Control

Providing smart performance and convenience, the Weather Information Interlocking Control feature of LG’s VRF solution automatically selects custom operation modes – including Automatic Pre-heating and Automatic Snow Removal – based on the weather conditions. Automatic Pre-heating allows users to enjoy a warm indoor environment, even on the coldest days of the year, by automatically heating the room in advance, while Automatic Snow Removal prevents snow from accumulating and freezing on the outdoor unit.

Powerful Performance

Boasting powerful performance even at extreme weather conditions, the Multi V i has surpassed its predecessor, the Multi V 5, to become the most energy efficient LG VRF solution yet. The new biomimetic fan and the compact orifice are designed to offer lower noise and fan-motor power consumption than the previous model.

Not only can it save energy, but the outstanding new model provides fresh, comfortable indoor air in any season, offering full cooling performance at a hot environment up to 43 degrees Celsius, while heating up the space at its fullest even at as low as negative 30 degrees Celsius. 

AI Smart Up

The Multi V i’s AI engine powers a variety of smart features, such as Auto Tuning and Remote Upgrade, which help to improve convenience and the overall user experience. The Auto Tuning system automatically tunes the compressor and motor during initial installation or when they need replacing, allowing for faster and easier setup and servicing.

Meanwhile, with the Remote Upgrade system, LG’s VRF solution can be automatically updated to the latest software version without an on-site service visit. Furthermore, the Multi V I offers AI Smart Diagnosis, which provides automated system analysis and easy-to-read status reports to help reduce service times and boost reliability.
