Using trained and licensed professionals for installation and service support will ensure that your LG equipment is properly installed and in compliance with applicable laws, rules and codes. Unit capacity, electrical requirements, equipment placement and space usages are among the variables that require contractor knowledge, input and judgment. Improperly installed or sized systems can lead to performance and safety concerns; therefore, LG Electronics U.S.A., Inc. does NOT authorize or warranty products that are not installed by licensed, qualified, and trained HVAC professionals.

All contractors listed on our website are independent HVAC professionals and are not owned, operated or controlled by LG Electronics U.S.A., Inc. Independent contractors are separate legal entities and use their own contracts for installation, service, and maintenance for LG equipment. In no event will LG Electronics U.S.A., Inc., incur any liability for the actions or inactions by any independent contractors. As such, we suggest that you follow-up on all references, licensing and certification claims for such independent contractors.
