From consumer units to commercial air conditioning systems, LG provides a wide range of innovative products for heating, ventilating and air conditioning. How To Choose A Room Air Conditioner Compared to large capacity central units, room air conditioners have several advantages. The initial cost of a room air conditioning unit is significantly lower than the cost of central air. Because room air conditioners are designed for cooling small spaces, operating costs are reduced. And, room air conditioners can provide personalized temperature and humidity controls that central systems cannot. Calculating Cooling Capacity Cooling capacity is the critical factor in properly selecting a room air conditioner. Cooling capacity is measured in British Thermal Units (BTUs) and typical models will range in capacity from 5,000 BTUs to 28,500 BTUs. Choosing an undersized unit will overwork the unit and it will not cool properly. Choosing an over-sized unit will cost more to buy and operate and it will not dehumidify properly. We can help you to calculate capacity. Be prepared to provide specific information on: Room Dimensions A simple floor plan to show the location of doors and north-facing windows The number of people it will serve Sources of heat such as lamps, TV and appliances An explanation of what's above the intended room Your insulation provisions Cooling Capacity by Room Size Measure the length and width of the area to be cooled. Multiply the length by the width to determine square footage or square meters. Locate the room size in the chart below to select the appropriate BTUs. Then use the product information to select the unit for your room. When cooling rooms with uninsulated ceilings, great rooms, or southern or western sun exposures - step up

hK.sturmNuss Knickers Black Volkanga, TIR - Men's

The assumption is that if you ride in the rain, no matter what you do or what you wear, your legs are going to get wet and cold because water-resistant bottoms are a fantasy. Assos is in the business of turning fantasy into reality and the Hk. sturmNuss Half Knickers get us all closer to realization of that fantasy. These knickers are made with Assos' new Triton fabric. It has something pretty revolutionary called "flexible membrane barrier technology." This means that when it's cold inside the garment, the membrane is less permeable, to better retain heat. As the inside heats up, the membrane becomes more permeable, and the micro-pores let sweat vapor out -- pretty amazing. The membrane is sandwiched between an inner layer and outer layer, which are bonded as a sandwich, and the inner and outer can be changed depending on how the garment is supposed to be used. In this case, Assos uses Triton V1 for the central panels, a sturdier, heavier iteration that does a great job of blocking rooster tails and splashes and doesn't need to do a great deal of stretching. And on the side panels, they employ strataGonUltra because it's thinner and much more elastic, for a better fit. These knickers are actually made to be worn over shorts, knickers, tights, legwarmers, etc. Think of them as a shell for your lower body. They hold onto your hips with elastic on the back half of the waistband and with the stretch of the fabrics in front. At the bottom of the legs is a siliconized calf gripper. Assos stitches reflective strips on the panels on the hamstrings to help make you more visible on rainy rides. The Assos Hk. sturmNuss Half Knickers are Black. Sizes run from Small to TIR.

Open Corsa EVO CX Black, 700c x 25mm

We admit it, we're even subject to the occasional bias -- especially when it comes to tires. However, this bias isn't solely built on presumption, instead, it's formed from two equal components: Our own experiences on the road, and our customers' feedback. Along these lines, the Vittoria Open Corsa EVO CX had long been distinguished as our best selling tire upgrade, and the most ridden tire in the office. And in typical Vittoria fashion, the best just keeps getting better. Now, Vittoria has performed a redesign of the aforementioned EVO CX, resulting in the new Open Corsa EVO CX. Now, if you're unfamiliar with how the Italians operate, we'll breakdown the title for you. 'Open' is the Italian terminology for clincher, as in the clincher-version of Vittoria's Corsa CX tubular tire. Meanwhile, 'Corsa' translates directly to 'race,' as in, this is a race-designated tire. Put the two together, and add in the evolution designation of 'EVO,' and you have a next-generation tire that's designed for speed. And while we understand that a name is simply a name, the Open Corsa line's results speak for themselves. Simply put, this line boasts more race wins than any other tire in history. And now that we have your attention, let's dig into the CX's construction. Vittoria gave this tire a 320TPI casing composition, meaning that the sidewalls are comprised of 320 threads per inch. And if you're wondering why there are 'threads,' this is because the EVO CX is a cotton tire. But, don't think that this decreases durability. In fact, Vittoria used a corespun, or 'polycore,' technique for the casing's construction. Essentially, this means that the casing fibers are made by twisting staple cotton fibers around a central filament core, creating one yarn from multiple fibers. As a result, the material is between 40 and 50% stronger than typically spun materials, while retaining a similar, if not lower, overall weight. Additionally, the 320TPI cotton casing provides the ideal stiffness...

Hell Saddle Black, One Size

Probably the last word you want creeping into your mind while searching for a new saddle, "hell" in Selle SMP speak is actually the exact opposite of what you might think. In fact, its new Hell saddle was made with an ample dose of padding, along with the brand's proven pressure-relief design to ensure newcomers to the sport remain supported and comfortable on their bikes. The Hell is best suited for cyclists with medium-wide and wide pelvises, as it features a longer and wider body, with more padding, than other models in this range. At the nose, there's the characteristic "beak" shape designed to provide a flat base while sitting, without excessive pressure on the genital area. SMP's pronounced central channel was also incorporated, which further reduces pressure on the pudendal nerve and surrounding soft tissue. The back of the saddle is raised for an enhanced seated pedaling position, where body weight is divided between the rear and lower part of the ischial tuberosity region. This shape also helps reduce overall pressure on the coccyx while riding over rough surfaces. The saddle's generous foam elastomer padding gets wrapped in leather for the black version and a durable Lorica microfiber in the colored versions. Its durable nylon composite shell rides on stainless steel rails, ensuring a secure perch that'll hold up for both road and mountain applications. The Selle SMP Hell is available in one size (280 x 147mm) and in the colors Black and White. The Hell is handmade in Italy and has a claimed weight of 280 grams.

Open Pave EVO CG III Full Black, 700c x 25mm

Whether it be Roubaix or Flanders, you've surely seen the Open Pave CG's characteristic green stripe pass over the finish line in top position. And while we've yet to see clinchers break the tubular's stranglehold on the cobbled classics, we have seen race-day carbon clinchers make an unprecedented rise. Accordingly, with the Vittoria Open Pave EVO CG III tire, you're able to apply Vittoria's strongest available grip to any road that warrants a touch of added confidence. Now, if you're unfamiliar with how the Italians operate, we'll break down the title for you. 'Open' is the Italian terminology for clincher, as in the clincher-version of Vittoria's Pave CG tubular tire. Meanwhile, 'Pave' translates to 'cobblestone,' as in, this is a tire that's designated for rough roads. Put the two together, and add in the evolution designation of 'EVO,' and you have a next-generation tire that's designed for speed.

Corsa EVO CX III - Tubular Tire Black, 700c x 25mm

Vittoria overhauled its best-selling Pro Series tire in the form of the new Corsa EVO CX III Tubular Tire. And while our personal experiences on the road -- combined with our customers' feedback -- proved that the original EVO CX was at the top of its class, Vittoria knew it could improve on this exceptional tire's design. The result is the latest chapter in Vittoria's Corsa EVO lineup -- that humble collection of racing tires holding more race wins than any other tire in history. Vittoria gave this tire a 320TPI casing composition, meaning that the sidewalls are comprised of 320 threads per inch. And if you're wondering why there are 'threads,' this is because the EVO CX is a cotton tire. But, don't think that this decreases durability. In fact, Vittoria used a corespun, or 'polycore,' technique for the casing's construction. Essentially, this means that the casing fibers are made by twisting staple cotton fibers around a central filament core, creating one yarn from multiple fibers. As a result, the material is between 40 and 50% stronger than typically spun materials, while retaining a similar, if not lower, overall weight. Additionally, the 320TPI cotton casing provides the ideal stiffness-to-weight ratio for the CX. By this, we mean that the tire's weight hovers around 250 grams, depending on width, while still retaining a perfect level of flexibility for cornering. Along these lines, you'll notice that the casing's high TPI equates to finer-grade fibers used in its composition. Accordingly, the fine fibers are more malleable than say, 220TPI casings, and this flexibility creates a more adaptable interface for the tire's rubber contact surface during cornering. So, this design provides a higher level of grip than rubber, which is why cotton casings are used on nearly every high-end tubular in the world. Additionally, the weave's density also absorbs a great deal of impact, while also contributing to a low-level of rolling resistance. This equates directly ...

Raceblade Fender Set Silver, Race 28in/700cc x 18/23

We embrace the concept of owning a backup bike. Call it what you will -- a trainer bike, a rain bike, a beater bike, whatever. But the reality of things is this: When you're in real training mode you're going to ride outside rain or shine, and each day closer you get to your "A" race, the more averse you'll be to riding any other bike than the exact bike you'll be racing. The harmony of man and machine is elemental, and the experience of owning a race bike is no different from the experience of having a new, really hot girlfriend -- the "getting to know you" part of the process is a delight, then once that stage is over you take immense comfort in the familiarity of things. Our observation is hardly paradigm-shattering. After all, who doesn't want to ride their favorite bike? And who wants to take time away from riding their favorite bike and instead devote time to cleaning it? Hence the SKS Race Blade fenders. They are terribly un-American but likewise very Euro in purpose: When pros train in Belgium in the Spring they slap fenders on their race bikes. Why? Because rain or shine the hard-men of Belgium are putting in their daily 6 hours, and they don't want their backsides and legs soaked to the bone 10 minutes into the ride. The Race Blade keeps you dry from road spray, and it goes a long way to prevent your bike from getting waterlogged and otherwise trashed. We dig on the Race Blade for one central reason: They use a rubber grommet system to attach to your bike. Think of it as being like a quick release system. It literally takes 10 seconds of tool-free time to put them on and take them off. They stay firmly in place, but they won't mar your frame -- be it a steel or alloy frame with glossy paint, or a carbon frame with a lush clear coat. Take these on and off for season after season and your bike won't look a any different for it. In addition, they're light and nicely aerodynamic. The Race Blade fits 700c wheels equipped with tires ranging in size from 18c-2...

Corsa EVO CX III - Tubular Tire

Vittoria overhauled its best-selling Pro Series tire in the form of the new Corsa EVO CX III Tubular Tire. And while our personal experiences on the road -- combined with our customers' feedback -- proved that the original EVO CX was at the top of its class, Vittoria knew it could improve on this exceptional tire's design. The result is the latest chapter in Vittoria's Corsa EVO lineup -- that humble collection of racing tires holding more race wins than any other tire in history. Vittoria gave this tire a 320TPI casing composition, meaning that the sidewalls are comprised of 320 threads per inch. And if you're wondering why there are 'threads,' this is because the EVO CX is a cotton tire. But, don't think that this decreases durability. In fact, Vittoria used a corespun, or 'polycore,' technique for the casing's construction. Essentially, this means that the casing fibers are made by twisting staple cotton fibers around a central filament core, creating one yarn from multiple fibers. As a result, the material is between 40 and 50% stronger than typically spun materials, while retaining a similar, if not lower, overall weight. Additionally, the 320TPI cotton casing provides the ideal stiffness-to-weight ratio for the CX. By this, we mean that the tire's weight hovers around 250 grams, depending on width, while still retaining a perfect level of flexibility for cornering. Along these lines, you'll notice that the casing's high TPI equates to finer-grade fibers used in its composition. Accordingly, the fine fibers are more malleable than say, 220TPI casings, and this flexibility creates a more adaptable interface for the tire's rubber contact surface during cornering. So, this design provides a higher level of grip than rubber, which is why cotton casings are used on nearly every high-end tubular in the world. Additionally, the weave's density also absorbs a great deal of impact, while also contributing to a low-level of rolling resistance. This equates directly ...
