ALPHARETTA, Ga. — LG Electronics has expanded its popular 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, Mo.; Miami; Minneapolis; and Portland, Ore. The Multi V III VRF technology training series, originally announced at the AHR Expo in Jan. 2012, was expanded due to industry demand following initial training events in select markets.

“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.”

To date, more than 1,000 industry representatives have attended Multi V III VRF training and education events in Los Angeles, New York, San Diego, New Orleans, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Dallas, Washington, Seattle, Indianapolis, Houston, Boston, St. Louis, and Honolulu. Among those attending the in-market training sessions, 95 percent of participants reported the events to be valuable in their understanding of VRF technology and available products.

“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.”
