ALPHARETTA, Ga. — LG Electronics has expanded its 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, Ore. The company said the VRF training, originally announced at the AHR Expo in January 2012, was expanded due to industry demand following initial training events in select markets.

LG said the Multi V III with VRF technology is the third generation of this air conditioning system for commercial and high-end residential applications, delivering fast-response cooling and a smaller, space-saving footprint.

“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.”

The company said that, to date, more than 1,000 industry representatives have attended its VRF training events in Atlanta, Boston, Dallas, Honolulu, Houston, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, New Orleans, New York City, Philadelphia, St. Louis, San Diego, Seattle, and Washington.

“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,” said 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.”
