LG Products Selected For Proud Green Home Project

August 22, 2013

LG Electronics USA is playing a key role in the Proud Green Home project that features techniques, products and design to create a sustainable home for the future. The project, a design-build collaboration located in the sustainable community of Serenbe, Ga., is sponsored by LG Electronics and other partners focused on sustainability. Luis Imery, founder of The Imery Group and designer/builder of Proud Green Home, is making Serenbe the home of their net zero project.

According to Imery, the Proud Green Home at Serenbe required the most energy-efficient systems to make the net zero goal a reality. Starting with heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC), LG's new Multi-V Mini ductless system ensures minimum energy consumption but maximum outputs for comfort.   

"Building a net zero home is more than sustainable products; it takes a collection of like-minded companies with a goal of energy efficiency to bring all the right products together," said Imery. "The LG HVAC system is the perfect foundation for this project as much of a home's energy usage can be attributed to the heating and cooling. The LG system maximizes occupant comfort while providing the control to make it as energy efficient as possible."

Energy-efficient appliances and electronics from LG Electronics complement the company’s Mono X solar panels and HVAC system in the project. LG appliances include the Energy Star-rated, large-capacity, three-door French Door refrigerator, a steam dishwasher, a built-in double wall oven, a professional-grade 36-in. gas cooktop and a countertop microwave. For the laundry room, LG's 4.0-cu.-ft., ultra-large-capacity steam washer with the companion clothes dryer and a 7.3 cu.-ft. ultra-large-capacity model were specified.  

The Proud Green Home at Serenbe is opening this month, and there are plans to monitor the usage of the home once the family moves in, providing the developers with information on the project’s efficiency. This data will impact future building projects that aim for increased sustainability as the focus on net zero homes continues to grow.
