South Korean tech giant, LG Electronics, was recently honoured with the Air-Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) Performance Award for the second straight year.
LG won the Performance Awards by AHRI for six air-conditioning product categories.
From 2016 to 2018, a total of 63 models of LG air conditioning systems across the six flagship product categories passed the performance evaluation conducted by the organization for the third consecutive year, including Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF), Unitary Small Heat Pump (USHP), Packaged Terminal Air Conditioner (PTAC), Packaged Terminal Heat Pump (PTHP), Water-Cooled Screw Chiller, and Air-Cooled Screw Chiller.
The Performance Awards are difficult to receive as all products from each category randomly selected by the AHRI must pass the first performance test for three consecutive years. After AHRI chooses 20 percent of each manufacturer’s products in each product category at random, experts from leading standard certification authority, Intertek, assess whether actual performance matches up with the listed specifications. The award is given based on the results of performance tests for North American models of the product categories.
Commenting on the award, Lee Kam-gyu, executive vice president of the Air Solution Business Unit at LG’s Home Appliance and Air Solution said “LG will strengthen competitiveness in the US market with its differentiated technology and certified air conditioning solutions,”
Founded in 1953, AHRI has a membership of approximately 350 air conditioning manufacturers from around the globe. The organization is well-known for thorough product evaluation, therefore is highly trusted by consumers.
