Regardless of the season, businesses and individuals are always looking for ways to control the temperature of the space they’re in – as well as ensure the air around them is germ-free and safe to breathe. 

The truth is, running an inefficient heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system can be costly due to the energy used to power them. And we know that excessive energy consumption is detrimental to the environment.

As a result, HVAC solutions in many public and private environments are required to be more efficient than ever, reducing costs and energy consumption while still providing optimum comfort and control.

Consider modern air-conditioning solutions

Forward-thinking air-conditioner manufacturers have been working on more sustainable commercial heating and cooling solutions for decades. So, for the ultimate energy and cost savings, you’d do well to invest in one of these new, more sustainable models. 

Consider the LG Multi V 5. This fifth-generation VRF air-conditioning solution has the Dual Sensing Control feature that senses both humidity and temperature to ensure optimum comfort and enhanced energy savings, leading to better cost efficiency.

Improved continuous heating technology in the Multi V 5 delivers an 11% increase in heating time and a reduction of 7% in power consumption compared to the previous model. This coupled with the Ultimate Inverter Compressor improves energy efficiency and enhances compressor reliability. 

Despite these enhancements, the LG Multi V5 takes up 23% less floor space than its predecessor because of its large capacity outdoor unit, providing up to 26HP, while allowing for more flexible installations that optimise space and reduce installed weight.

With the drive for sustainability becoming more and more important, cutting-edge technology like this is becoming a key enabler across numerous industries including healthcare, retail, corporate, manufacturing, government and education.

Smart building management for sustainability

Facilities and building management are key to managing consumption for businesses. In the case of retail / commercial property landlords and managing agents, not only is consumption important, but recoveries from tenants is a considerable contribution towards the efficiency of the business.

Recognizing the major environmental and financial impact of heating and cooling can dramatically enhance the approach to optimising the operation of a commercial space. Environments designed with sustainability in mind can leverage integrated solutions working within the architecture and operation for the benefit of both the landlord and tenant.

In addition to integrated design, the technology itself plays a pivotal role in smart building management. Innovative technology like the LG Central Controllers and LG BECON Cloud enable full visibility, monitoring and control of the HVAC system, making accurate recoveries from tenants easy and convenient.

 Maintaining a commitment to energy-efficiency in a business requires a multi-pronged and continuous approach. Investing in a well-design HVAC system mapped around the usage of the environment can help businesses reach their sustainability goals, while efficiently managing costs.
