LG Electronics announced new initiatives and energy efficient products aimed at expanding the company's U.S. commercial and residential HVAC business at AHR Expo, being held this week in Orlando, FL, U.S.
LG is introducing three new high SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rated) models for Commercial and Commercial Light applications. The models range in efficiency from 18.4 SEER to 20 SEER and qualify for the Federal Energy Efficiency Tax benefit. They will launch in the second quarter of 2010.
The appliance company has also opened two commercial air conditioning training academies – one outside of Atlanta, GA, U.S. and one in California – with plans to open two other academies later this year. The training academies focus on educating trade partners on the company’s advanced applied commercial products, duct-free and energy efficient solutions and other products that can broaden contractors' portfolio.
