The Performance Award is widely regarded to be an accolade that is difficult to accomplish, as all products from each category randomly selected by AHRI must pass the performance test for three consecutive years. LG received this award for the first time in 2017 after passing the test each year since 2015.

From 2017 to 2019, a total of 73 models of LG's air-conditioning systems, representing seven product categories were tested and passed the evaluation with flying colors. They include Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF), Packaged Terminal Air-Conditioner (PTAC), Packaged Terminal Heat Pumps (PTHP), Unitary Small Air-Conditioner Equipment (VMAC), Unitary Small Heat Pump Equipment (VMHP), Water-Cooled Water-Chilling and Heat Pump Water-Heating Packages Using the Vapor Compression Cycle (WCCL), and Air-Cooled Water-Chilling Packages (ACCL).

AHRI randomly selects a minimum of 20 percent of all products from each category for annual testing. The institute then sends test samples to Intertek, a leading standard certification authority and an independent third-party laboratory accredited by AHRI, to verify whether the products perform in accordance with the specifications. AHRI, a trade association founded in 1953, represents manufacturers of HVACR and water heating equipment around the globe with more than 350 member companies. The association is well-known for conducting a stringent performance evaluation, instilling consumer confidence.

Among the award-winning products, Multi V is LG's flagship large-capacity outdoor unit. Its Ultimate Inverter Compressor, originally developed by LG, enables advanced performance and energy efficiency, making the product stand out in the commercial air-conditioning market. It exhibits excellent heating performance under extreme conditions of -30 degrees Celsius (-22 degrees Fahrenheit), which explains its popularity especially in North America where temperature drops to a very low level in winter.

Multi V S, is a flagship small-and-medium-capacity unit built for residential use. A single outdoor unit can be connected to up to 16 indoor units, which makes it suitable for even large residential areas and condominiums. Indoor units are provided in various types from a wall-mounted configuration, a ceiling cassette to a duct-type so that customers can make choices they want. PTAC, another certified product, is a single, self-contained unit frequently used at hotels. LG's PTAC units boast exceptional durability, applied with special coating technology aimed to prevent corrosion of the heat exchanger.
