Air conditioning as primary heat source

Air conditioning as primary heat source

A recent refurbishment project on a Victorian detached home in the Home Counties has seen the interesting use of LG's multi split air conditioning equipment to provide the primary heating source for the home as well as comfort cooling in the warmer months of the year.

The project is a joint venture between air conditioning manufacturer LG, M3R Climate, an air conditioning specialist from Milton Keynes and air conditioning contractors KV Cooling from Stanmore.

The home has a wide range of renewable and energy saving elements. Triple glazed window units, the air conditioning system with a traditional condensing boiler ‘back up’ heating system, underfloor heating downstairs and high levels of insulation make this sizeable property very cosy.

The LG ARTCOOL Gallery units use less energy than a boiler providing very rapid response from the remote controls that come with the units. The two Multi-split condensers wall mounted outside the property are each connected to two Artcool gallery units indoors. The upstairs Artcool units can deliver a cooling capacity of 2.64 kW and a heating capacity of 2.93kW whilst the downstairs units can deliver 3.52kW of cooling and 3.87kW of heating.
