OKLAHOMA CITY - LSB Industries Inc.’s wholly-owned subsidiary, ClimateMaster Inc., has joined forces with the Electric & Gas Industries Association (EGIA) and GE Money to help consumers finance the purchase of a geothermal heating, cooling, and water heating system for their homes.

According to Barry Golsen, president and COO of LSB Industries, “With buildings accounting for nearly 40 percent of all U.S. energy consumption, and heating, cooling, and water heating being the largest contributors, geothermal heat pumps are one of the best ways to trim energy bills and decrease fossil fuel usage, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and their harmful impact on the environment.

“ClimateMaster’s line of geothermal heating and cooling systems are an excellent choice for providing and utilizing sustainable, affordable energy,” said Bruce Matulich, executive director of the EGIA, a non-profit organization dedicated to advancing energy efficiency and renewable energy solutions. “We are pleased to be able to promote both ClimateMaster’s products and the GEOSmart program to distributors, contractors, and our utility partners across the United States.”
