The LG Prestige ductless heat pump is one of our favourite ductless mini split models.
Here are the top reasons why the LG heat pump has been one of our goto units.
- Efficiency Rating
There are two primary heat pump ratings used to compare different models and brands.
- HSPF (heating seasonal performance factor)
- SEER (seasonal energy efficiency ratio)
The higher each of these ratings is the more efficiently the heat pump can move heat from outdoor ambient air into your home. For ductless heat pump you should be looking at a SEER of at least 20 and an HSPF above 10.
The LG Prestige fits this criteria perfectly with an HSPF of 11.5 and a SEER rating of 25.5
- Operating Temperature
At one time air-to-air heat pumps worked to only about –5 degrees celsius. That is no longer the case today with most systems operating until at least –15. The downfall of only operating to –15 is during January and February it will get colder than that in atlantic.
The LG Prestige heat pump operates down to –25 degrees celsius.
- Air Circulation
Normally a 12,000 BTU heat pump, will cover 600–800 square feet. If the space is bigger than a bigger air circulation is needed to either cool or warm the area.
The LG Prestige as an extremely high air circulation range, over 500cfm and go way down below 300cfm.
This mean the LG Prestige 12000 BTU will cover up to 1000 square foot spaces.
- Noise Level
Home owners are most often concerned with the efficiency ratings of a heat pump. Not much attention is given to the noise ratings on the outdoor and indoor unit.
We always advise homeowners to take this into consideration too. If the noise level is too loud for your comfort than it won’t be something you’re going to want to use very often.
The LG Prestige as the lowest decibel rating in the industry when in low fan mode. The indoor unit of the LG operates at approximately 17db. This is about the same noise level as a library.
- Price Point
Finally, and the biggest reason this unit is such a hit with home owners, is the price point.
At Andmar Eco-Energy an LG Prestige 12000 BTU is ranging from $3,000to $4,000.
This is a very competitive price point compared to similar models in other brand lines.The reason we are giving you ranges is because everyones home is different. When we are determining the best sized unit and brand heat pump for your home we’re taking all factors into consideration. That way you are getting the right price for the right installation.
