Recognition by respected industry association demonstrates LG’s continued excellence in commercial and residential HVAC solutions
Seoul, South Korea, July 21, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — LG Electronics (LG) has been recognized with the Performance Award by the Air-Conditioning, Heating & Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) for the fourth year in a row, testing all 57 LG HVAC models and providing comprehensive performance evaluation of the organization.
Founded in 1953, AHRI is a respected trade association representing global manufacturers of HVAC, refrigeration and water heating solutions. AHRI currently has more than 350 member companies – including all of the top names in the industry – and its product evaluation and certification programs are trusted by B2B and B2C customers around the world.
For the Performance Award, AHRI calls on the experts at Intertek, a leading standards and certification organization, to assess whether actual product performance matches stated specifications. AHRI randomly selects 20 percent of the models within each (manufacturer-specified) product category. Only those companies whose offerings have passed the primary performance evaluation for three consecutive years are eligible for the Performance Award.
A total of 57 LG HVAC solutions in seven product categories passed the AHRI evaluation for the third year in a row (2018 to 2020). The models tested belong to the following categories: Variable Refrigerant Airflow (VRF), Variable-Speed Mini-Split and Multi-Split Air Conditioners, Packaged Terminal Air-Conditioners (PTAC), Packaged Terminal Heat Pumps (PTHP), Water-Cooled Chillers, air-cooled chillers and room fan coil units.
One of the products tested was Multi V, LG’s flagship large-capacity outdoor unit, which uses the company’s proprietary Ultimate Inverter Compressor to deliver strong performance and energy efficiency. Particularly popular in regions where winters can be long and harsh, LG’s VRF system provides reliable heating even in temperatures as low as -30 degrees Celsius (negative – 22 degrees Fahrenheit).
Also evaluated was LG Multi V Water, a water source cooling system with a plate heat exchanger for improved thermal efficiency. The company’s solution also saves energy by adjusting the volume of heated/chilled water based on the number of outdoor units in operation.
A third product to pass AHRI’s assessment, LG’s air-cooled Inverter Scroll Chiller is a highly efficient solution powered by advanced inverter technology. With a footprint of just 1.6 square meters (20-refrigerator ton model), the company’s compact unit delivers a high level of performance without taking up much space.
“LG has cemented its excellent reputation in the North American HVAC market through its exceptional technologies developed in-house, and has seen steady growth for 12 consecutive years,” said James Lee, head of the Air Solution Business Unit at LG Electronics Home Appliance & Air Solution Company. “We will continue to strengthen our competitive position in the region and around the world through HVAC solutions that provide the highest levels of performance, durability and flexibility.”
