It is always best to go for known brands that produce lasting, reliable products when it comes to air conditioners. While many names in the industry produce excellent air conditioners, LG is among the top ones in Australia and the world.
They were initially known as Goldstar when they rolled out Korea’s first residential air conditioner in 1968 and have since been prominent in global HVAC markets.
Today, we will discuss a few different types of LG air conditioners to give you a better idea of which type may best suit your needs, especially during the hot Australian summers.
Types of LG Air Conditioners
Here are some of the different types of air conditioners the LG sells. Most of these are single indoor and outdoor unit air conditioners, while others are outdoor compressor units used to power multiple indoor units.
- Split System
LG offers some bestselling split systems in the Australian market. Their “Smart Series” split air conditioners are ideal for heating or cooling single rooms or small to the medium area of any home. They include an outside unit, which can be wall-mounted, and an inside unit, which can only be wall-mounted.
The Smart Series comes with built-in Wi-Fi to control your split system remotely, and some have LG Active Energy Control on the LG ThinQ app, allowing you to monitor your split system’s energy usage. Most importantly, however, most LG split systems have a 10-year compressor parts warranty.
- Ducted System
Ducted systems use indoor ducts connected to an outdoor compressor to cool your entire home. LG offers their ducted systems with a zone control of up to 8 zones or rooms with their LG premium controller.
These units allow you to keep your entire home comfortable during harsh Australian summers. The inside duct unit is fairly inconspicuous, and LG’s “Slim” ducted options offer minimised height for even more seamless integration into your home.
These systems are powered by an outside compressor unit capable of providing whole-home cooling. The best part, however, is the Quite Mode in some of these LG ducted systems. It allows you to cool your entire home without making any excessive air conditioner noise that most other systems do.
- Multi-Split System
These are LG’s solutions to powering multiple indoor split systems with a single multi-split outdoor BLDC compressor unit. You can cool multiple rooms in your home with a single multi-split outdoor unit, which makes cooling your home and compressor maintenance a breeze since there is only one to take care of.
- Cassette Air Conditioner
Often cooling larger open spaces in an inconspicuous way can be difficult, For this, LG offers their ceiling-mounted cassette air conditioners. These can seamlessly be integrated into your ceiling and offer 4-way direct and indirect airflow.
They can also be installed in ceiling panels, and the outside, powerful BLDC compressor unit can be placed on the floor or mounted on an external wall. LG cassette air conditioners come with DC inverter technology to save energy and BLDC fan technology.
These are perfect for any large open spaces in your home and work very efficiently, thanks to 4-way cooling and inverter technology.
- Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) System
VRF provides excellent, powerful, and versatile cooling solutions for multiple large and small spaces. You can use them for cooling your offices, floors, or commercial property. LG VRF systems are called “Multi V” and are powerful compressors that can connect to various LG indoor units.
This means you can get comfortable, convenient, and efficient cooling throughout your commercial structure without the need for individual outdoor compressor units.
These are just some of the key types that LG offers, and there are a few others like their Therma V, which we can discuss another time. For now, if you are looking to cool your room, large open space, entire home, or a commercial property, the mentioned ones should prove to be great solutions.
LG air conditioners are very reliable and efficient. Still, like any top brand air conditioner, you need to ensure that you take care of them with regular maintenance to get the most out of your investment. Australian summers can get pretty hot, and air conditioners can quickly hike your energy bills.
For this reason, we recommend that you look into some of LG’s more efficient and energy-saving air conditioning solutions. Of course, there are other brands too, and you should always do your research before choosing the right air conditioner for your home or business.
