WHEN: May 6, 2020


Trainer: Ross Trethewey of RST Thermal

Description: Review of LG Controls – Additional information pending.

Come find out what all the hype is about! Learn how to incorporate (install) this equipment and how LG can help you provide your customers with this leading technology



WHAT ARE INTEGRATED CONTROLS? They are controls that work with existing Oil or Propane systems to utilize both the existing fossil fuel in conjunction with a new LG heatpump system, to provide maximum efficiency. (Electric heating systems are also included)

“Effectively using heat pumps with an existing heating system can reduce heating costs for customers who heat their homes with oil or propane. By installing an Integrated Control, the system can automatically switch from heating with the Air Source Heat Pump to the conventional system based on preselected outdoor temperatures and temperature differential from setpoint. This allows for maximum comfort and cost savings throughout the winter months.”  Mass save website

Mass Save is offering very large rebates for this type of installation in Massachusetts for reducing carbon footprints along with providing superior efficiency.

LG Whole House solutions can help you receive these large MassSave rebates.

This class will help to unlock the mystery of the integrated controls and the latest LG technology.
