LG Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) systems significantly minimize energy usage in comparison with traditional HVAC systems. VRF systems have the lowest life cycle cost amongst competing systems while also providing maximum occupant comfort through precise load matching, providing a building owner with an incredible value for his investment.  The system also offers vast flexibility with installation by eliminating large air duct systems, and providing compact and quiet equipment.

DuctSox Fabric Duct and Diffuser Systems have many advantages and benefits, many of which are green and can be helpful in attaining LEED credits. Because the entire DuctSox system is a diffuser, air can be supplied to the occupied space in a more efficient pattern. DuctSox systems may be designed with fittings similar to metal ductwork, including many standard zippered fittings and unlimited customization to match any application requirements.
