With a family of both ducted and duct-free options including the exclusive picture frame Art Cool Gallery, the heating performance of LGRED and the single-phase 5-ton VRF heat recovery unit, LG delivers the quality, performance and style that customers expect, McNamara said.
“LG has grown tremendously in the RLC category over the past few years and has a great vision for bringing ground-breaking products to market. My focus is to build on the momentum to further increase the visibility and preference of the powerful LG brand in the HVAC industry,” says Bougher.
