Indoor air laden with high concentrations of micro dust or CO2 can contribute to a less than ideal environment. Long-term exposure to sub-standard air can have a tangible negative impact on overall health and educational performance (if learning inside a school with poor indoor air quality).

Despite the risks posed by poor indoor air quality, the costs associated with advanced air solutions that include the latest air filters, humidifiers and dehumidifiers are widely overlooked due to budget constraints. Reliable air purification solutions are widely available and should be top priority for any new build or refurbishment project.

LG’s Energy Recovery Ventilation

Capable of rapidly improving indoor air quality while reducing energy consumption, the LG ERV (Energy Recovery Ventilation) is an excellent example of how futuristic air solutions will be able to contribute to resolve indoor air quality issues and pave the way forward for schools, care homes and offices around the country.

The LG ERV removes dust particles and harmful airborne substances through an advanced three-step air purification process. Equipped with the highly efficient F7 filter, the LG ERV helps block 80 to 90 percent of dust particles as small as 0.4 micrometers in size.

Designed with energy efficiency in mind, the low energy costs of the LG ERV allow users to reduce monthly expenses while remaining environmentally friendly. The LG ERV’s CO2 sensors monitor indoor Carbon Dioxide levels in real time, ensuring that output is constantly adjusted to maximise air quality. This allows the LG ERV to adjust energy use based on conditions such as classroom occupancy, greatly reducing power consumption.

In addition, the Easy Remote Controller provides simplified visuals that display vital information including CO2 levels in an easily accessible format. The streamlined remote is intuitive enough for anyone to quickly master.

Typical solutions constantly expel unclean air while drawing in fresh air, leading to high temperature variation that makes efficient climate control more difficult. However, the LG ERV’s heat exchanger is designed to store energy in order to simultaneously boost efficiency and circulation.

Specialized models such as the LG ERV DX offer a mixture of LG’s Multi V air conditioner and the vaunted ERV ventilation system, providing even greater humidity control.
