LG Electronics Expands HVAC Training Series Across U.S. To Support Energy-Efficient VRF Technology Education

In-market training events covering higher efficiency Multi V III VRF technology expanded to 15 additional cities due to industry demand

LG Electronics, a worldwide award-winning HVAC solutions provider, has expanded its popular training series for Multi V III Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) technology to an additional 15 markets across the United States, including Baltimore, Cincinnati, Kansas City, Miami, Minneapolis and Portland. The Multi V III VRF technology training series, originally announced at the AHR Expo in January 2012, was expanded due to industry demand following initial training events in select markets.

Delivering AHRI-certified ratings, fast-response cooling and a smaller, space-saving footprint, Multi V III with VRF technology is the third generation of LG’s innovative commercial air conditioning system for commercial and high-end residential applications.

“For more than a decade, LG has demonstrated its dedication to the HVAC industry through not only continually expanding the company’s portfolio of innovative heating and cooling products, but also through in-market training to support technology education,” said Kevin McNamara, vice president, Commercial Air Conditioning, LG Electronics USA. “Industry response to LG’s VRF training series has been unprecedented and a testament to the value of these programs, especially as industry-leading technologies such as VRF are introduced to the market.”

Engaging the Industry

Widely adopted across Europe and Asia, VRF technology provides greater energy efficiency and cost savings compared with traditional HVAC systems. In addition to lower noise emissions, individual controllability and more effective temperature control, the more compact VRF systems also allow for much easier installs, space savings and higher reliability ratings

To date, more than 1,000 industry representatives have attended Multi V III VRF training and education events in Los Angeles, New York City, San Diego, New Orleans, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Dallas, Washington, Seattle, Indianapolis, Houston, Boston, St. Louis and Honolulu. Among those attending the in-market training sessions, 95 percent of participants reported the events to be valuable in their understanding of VRF technology and available products

“Through this training series, LG is educating the U.S. market about the greener, more efficient heating and cooling option that is fast becoming an industry standard in other parts of the world,” continued McNamara. “We’re seeing some of our highest positive feedback rates coming out of these sessions, further illustrating that the industry is eager to learn about new technology solutions from thought leaders like LG as demand for energy savings in the U.S. continues to grow.”
