LG Launches New Redesigned Website

LG has announced the launch of LGHVAC.com, a new, consolidated website.
The primary goal of the redesign is to help both installers and consumers access the information they need in a quick and efficient manner and bring consistency to the communication channels.

New Features:

  • Search: Expanded search functionality across the site will help users quickly find desired content.
  • New Product Pages: Cleaner look and easier navigation of information
  • myLG HVAC: All useful documentation including submittals, engineering manuals, and product literature is centralized before the login. After login, users will have access to channel exclusive content.

Where do I find documentation, submittals, and manuals?

myLG HVAC is your new go-to for all documentation and relevant information which is  available before the login. Additionally, all related content is still found on each product page for further convenience.

What happened to all the old URLs that I was using (lg-vrf.com, lg-dfs.com, lgptac.com, lghomecomfort.com)?

All existing URLs will be automatically redirected to appropriate pages on the new lghvac.com site.  If you are using these URLs currently, please switch them out to lghvac.com.

Change to Daikin Ductless Product Registration Site

If you use the Daikin Partnerlink site to register Daikin Ductless units, please note that Daikin is in the process of migrating content to Daikin-specific web sites.

To register Daikin Ductless units, you will now use the form located on Daikincomfort.com.

Also, Daikin serial numbers have changed from 10 digits to a 12-digit alpha-numeric serial number. Please make sure that you are using the 12-digit alpha-numeric serial number when registering new units. This serial number is on both the box and the unit.

Product registration is required for the equipment to have the advertised warranty.

HVAC Distributors Now Stocking Tear-Resistant Ductless Line Sets

818612dd-4acd-490d-8792-e30797c48cff__63461.1510805724

HVAC Distributors now stocks tear-resistant line sets for ductless installations. (We also have standard ductless line sets available)

Why Tear-Resistant?

Many contractors appreciate that this type of line set, which bonds a tear-resistant outer material to the line set insulation, is more forgiving when fishing line through walls for ductless installations.

Some other features of HVAC Distributors’ tear-resistant line sets:

Insulation Thickness

  • 1/2” thick, compared to the 3/8” thickness on our standard ductless line sets, providing greater insulation value
  • Complies with new building code requirement of 1/2” insulation for residential new construction in some counties in Delaware and Maryland

Color

  • White (vs. the black of standard insulation)
  • UV retarders added to resist degradation from sun exposure

Code Compliance

  • Meets ASTM B280 and C1427 specifications
  • Flame Spread Index is rated at 25/50 Plenum rated to ASTM E84, UL723, and NFPA255

Tear-resistant line sets are available at all HVAC branches and through Web Order Entry.
