ALPHARETTA, Ga., Feb. 11, 2021 — Air conditioning technologies innovator LG Electronics is highlighting stylish, flexible and efficient home comfort solutions for residential projects during IBSx, the 2021 International Builders’ Show® virtual experience.


The LG HVAC innovations offer builders, contractors and architects a wide range of flexible design and installation options for new construction and retrofit projects alike. LG’s residential and light commercial offerings for indoor comfort include variable refrigerant flow (VRF) technology, customizable control systems and powerful ducted and duct-free heating and cooling solutions, available in single- and multi-zone configurations.

A number of LG’s expanded line of single- and multi-zone products for residential and light commercial projects now feature industry-leading LGRED˚ (Reliable to Extreme Degrees) heating technology. Boasting 100% of rated heating capacity performance down to 5°F and continuous heating operations down to -13˚F, LG single zone systems with LGRED˚ provide builders and homeowners with an electric option that reliably delivers year-round heating and cooling in an all-in-one inverter heat pump system. LG single zone systems with LGRED˚ offer a better alternative to fossil fuels and expensive, supplemental heat sources, meeting the market preference for more efficient homes.


“Technologies on display at the IBSx show home builders how LG remains committed to pushing the industry forward and delivering the most innovative end-to-end solutions for the residential space,” said Steve Scarbrough, senior vice president, LG Air Conditioning Technologies USA. “From our award-winning VRF technology to flexible, stylish heating and cooling systems and versatile controls and connectivity products, LG is paving the way for more-efficient indoor comfort and advanced home automation.”

For the second year in a row, the National Association of Home Builders selected LG as Platinum Partner for The New American Remodel® (TNAR), official show home of IBSx. Outfitted with efficient HVAC solutions from LG, TNAR 2021 is a state-of-the-art net zero home illustrating how today’s building innovations can transform any home into a high-performance, high-tech space, while reducing energy consumption, increasing efficiency and enhancing daily life. (See separate news release.)
