LG achieves AHRI award for fourth year

SOUTH KOREA: All 57 LG HVAC models have passed the Air Conditioning, Heating & Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) comprehensive performance evaluation for the fourth consecutive year.

The evaluations are carried out on behalf of the AHRI by leading standards and certification organisation, Intertek, to assess whether actual product performance matches up with the listed specifications. 

AHRI randomly selects 20% of models within each (manufacturer-specified) product category. Only those companies whose offerings have passed the primary performance evaluation for three years consecutively are eligible for the Performance Award.

“LG has been solidifying its excellent reputation in the North American HVAC market on the back of its exceptional, in-house-developed technologies, and has recorded steady growth for twelve consecutive years,” said James Lee, head of the Air Solution Business Unit at LG Electronics Home Appliance & Air Solution Company.
