The LV series provides high efficiency, with a SEER rating of up to 24.5. This series comes with either a slim built-in duct, or it can be wall-mounted. The ducted unit can achieve a SEER of 15.5, while the wall-mounted unit can reach a SEER of 24.5. The ducted model does offer installation flexibility, as the tubing can reach over 60 feet.
