Artcool Gallery available as single split

UK: LG has launched single split versions of its Artcool Gallery air conditioning units in the UK. 

The units, renowned for the ability to change their fascia artwork, have been available for multi split and VRF systems for a while, but will now also be available as a single split option.

Standard features from the single split range include auto cleaning, jet cool, 3-way swing and fast heating 

Using LG’s efficient dual inverter compressor, operating on lower GWP R32 refrigerant, it operates more quietly than established models – at around 19dB. It also includes a silence mode which operates at just 3dB.

The varied speed dual rotary compressor also boats a wider rotational frequency, higher volumetric cooling capacity and lower vibration. 

LG’s Gold Fin coil coating is also included to protect against wear and corrosion.
