Oasis Verde Greenovative Homes Receives Zoned A/C System

The objective was to install a highly-efficient, zoned-temperature-control air-conditioning system for a single-family home build site that could meet Greenovative Homes’ eco-friendly and economical requirements.

Greenovative Homes approached LG Electronics Commercial Air Conditioning to provide a zoned air-conditioning system for a new single-family home build site in Florida. After evaluating competitive bids from other manufacturers, the builder chose LG’s Flex Multi-Quad Zone solution.

Greenovative Homes are patented, energy-efficient homes designed to sell for under $250,000. To match the home’s unique eco-friendly design features, project managers presented a flexible air-conditioning solution that could provide independent comfort zones, taking maximum advantage of LG’s innovative inverter technology.

The installed system included two ducted, one wall and one cassette-based zones. The builder was able to offer prospective home buyers the zoned-temperature-control option, while saving building time and installation costs by integrating duct-free components into the system.

The air-conditioning install was completed in less than a week and within budget. With a number
of custom-build eco-friendly features, including LG’s Flex Multi-Quad Zone system, the home sold immediately at a competitive market price of $239,000.

At approximately 2,500 sq ft, a comparable home in this area has an average utility bill
of up to $250/month during summer months, largely due to air-conditioning use. With the LG Flex Multi-Quad Zone system, it is not unusual to cool a similar space for an average of $22/month.

“Bringing LG Electronics on board as a technology partner for Greenovative Homes was a
no-brainer for us,” said Paul White, President of Greenovative Homes. “In addition to meeting our strict requirements for energy efficiency and eco-friendly features, LG’s advanced air-conditioning system is a perfect complement to the Greenovative Home mission—building superior-quality, comfortable and low-maintenance ’green’ homes that can be sold at an affordable price point.”
