Key Features

Zone Control

The LG premium controller allows users to take control of up to 8 zones. These zones can be made easily identifiable through naming, for example; Master Bedroom, Office, Hallway.

Improved Efficiency

Inverter technology provides efficient energy use, which lowers cooling costs in the summer.

Easy Access

The unit’s panel is divided in two, one for heat exchanger and the other for fan/motor. This allows technicians to easily detach and re-attach filters within a limited space.

Smart Controllers

An app, the Smart ThinQ App lets users control the air conditioner with a smartphone. This allows the unit to be controlled remotely.

Safety Tray

The indoor unit has an integrated safety tray, which can help prevent damage caused by blocked drains or accidental leakage.

Discrete Appearance

Neat design allow the units to discretely fit into most environments, with only the grille of the inside unit showing.

Peak Current Technology

The maximum running current can be limited, avoiding the system running on the peak level and thereby saving electricity consumption.

Always works well at -6 to 45.3 deg

I replaced my ducted gas heating and ducted water evap in March 2019 with a LG B55AWY-7G5 with Wi-Fi remote for $7900 I was extremely happy with the way it performed in winter with a bill much less than what gas would have been. This summer has been a mixture of humid smoky days to a record 45.3. on this day it was set at 22.5 Deg and ran at 26.5 and when the outside temp dropped below 40 Deg it happily ran at 22.5. the first summer bill was only $45 above the corresponding bill last year. The operation noise level is low and time to heat and cool is good. The installer (ROC industries) found it to be as good as the Daikin premium series at much smaller price. If this unit continues to be as serviceable in years to come it makes it a good investment.

I think our LG is great

We had our system installed one extremely hot summer days right before Christmas what seems to be a really, really long time ago. Temps were and get to 45 here in summer. and as low as minus 7/8 in winter.

We’ve used it nearly every day since and have never had a problem with it. It has always worked as expected and it does what I want.

In winter I have the timer on to come on at 4am, occasionally I hear the system start up as its close to my bedroom. It’s a slight hum – most times I don’t notice it. When we get up around 6am the bedrooms are lovely and warm.

I turn it off to go to work and turn it on manually when I get home, it heats/cools the house straight away and really on the extreme days I don’t even notice its hot or cold unless I go outside.

I’ve never really thought about it before until I stubbled across this page, but yeah I really like our LG ducted. It wasn’t as expensive as some of the other brands but it works perfectly and we are happy.

Summer heat solution

The old Daikin ducted system had died and days of incessant summer heat convinced us to replace the unit, this time with an LG 12.3kW system. It has been installed for about a month now and I must say I am impressed. Slightly larger than the original unit, it has the capacity to bring the house down to the desired temperature even when switched on mid-afternoon. When it achieves this, the outside unit backs off into idle mode to save power. The control panel in particular is easy to use and the large icons are very easy to read. With more hot weather ahead in coming years, I now know we can easily cope with it and with 10kW of solar on the roof – it is free to run. It doesn’t get any better than this.
