LG Builder extends LG’s trademark reliability, innovation and value to the builder, remodeler and designer communities. At Design & Construction Week, LG is displaying new ENERGY STAR® certified home appliances across three diverse brand portfolios – LG, LG STUDIO and Signature Kitchen Suite:
- The fast-growing Signature Kitchen Suite brand reflects LG’s commitment to producing the industry’s best built-in luxury appliances with leading-edge technology, enabling “Technicurean™” home chefs to prepare and preserve food in the best possible ways.

The InstaView window let users check cooking progress without opening the door or reaching over a hot cooktop to flip a switch; all they have to do is knock twice on the glass panel.
HVAC: Energy-efficient residential heating and cooling solutions from LG Air Conditioning Technologies USA highlighted at the show include ducted and duct-free options – from the
ENERGY STAR certified Art Cool™ Gallery picture frame and Art Cool Mirror indoor units to the superior heating performance of LGRED° technology and convenience of the ceiling mounted 4-way cassette. Key 2022 innovations for the high-performance builder market are led by the indoor Multi-position Vertical Air Handling Unit featuring LGRED° and the ENERGY STAR certified Multi F MAX with LGRED° heat pump.
HEAT PUMP WATER HEATER: At Design & Construction Week, LG is previewing an advanced new inverter heat pump water heater, enabling homebuilders to deliver a new level of energy efficiency and convenience. An effective alternative to traditional electric resistance or gas water heaters, LG inverter technology heats water with an efficiency of 3.75 UEF, which is more efficient than standard 0.65- 0.95 UEF conventional gas and electric resistance water heaters. Ideal for residential applications, this ENERGY STAR certified product operates at a quieter sound level of just 42 dB(A) thanks to LG’s inverter compressor. The inverter compressor also allows the heat pump to operate down to 23°F ambient air temperature, minimizing the need to supplement with the electric resistance heat, providing saving opportunities on electrical consumption across a broader operating range.
ENERGY STORAGE: LG’s new Energy Storage Systems (ESS)for both commercial and residential applications can provide a more reliable and cleaner energy option (when coupled with PV and grid power). ESS can also store energy to offset peak shaving, provide emergency power as a backup, and allow for frequency regulation. The LG Commercial ESS plug-and-play solution works with existing infrastructure to offer efficiencies and support decarbonization efforts, while LG Home ESS products, launching in the second quarter of this year, will offer time-of-use functionalities and provide 14.4 kWh of useable capacity and 15.8kWh name plate capacity to power homes day and night.
SMART HOME: As a leading innovator in the smart home category with expertise across home appliances, consumer electronics and more, LG enables builders and designers to easily create a smart home ecosystem for their clients. LG home appliances, HVAC systems and storage systems are designed with connectivity, quality and energy efficiency in mind. These Wi-Fi-enabled smart devices can be managed, monitored and controlled remotely as a complete turnkey solution with the LG ThinQ® app. Coming soon are LG home energy management and distributed energy resource management systems designed to bring even more intelligence that today’s homebuyers demand.
SHOW HOME PARTNER: Reflecting its commitment to homebuilders, LG was named Platinum Partner of The New American Home, official show home of the National Association of Home Builders. Key LG Builder innovations are on display at this one-of-a-kind showcase that spotlights industry best practices, innovative design concepts, state-of-the-art products and the latest construction techniques.
