LG Electronics, the global leader in inverter technology for residential air-conditioners, has introduced its new lineup of LG DUALCOOL air-conditioners with Dual Inverter Compressor. LG’s new and improved air-conditioning units boast of 70% lower energy consumption and 40% faster cooling performance. LG’s groundbreaking UVnano™ technology was also introduced. UVnano removes 99.99% of germs from humidity, bacteria, and viruses within the unit. The powerful 5-step Total Air Care System in the new LG DUALCOOL air-conditioners feature efficient PM1.0 filtration to deliver a clean, healthy, and fresh living experience which are also perfect for your smart home. The air-conditioners support connectivity with the LG ThinQ™ app through Wi-Fi, which enables users to control the air-conditioner anywhere anytime – from powering on and off. With these new line of LG DUALCOOL air-conditioners, LG is targeting an increase in its local market to 15% within 2021.
Mr. Young Park, LG Philippines’ Vice President for Air Conditioners and Energy Solutions, said, “The pandemic fundamentally changed how people live their lives. What was normal before, such as seeing movies or dining out, is now something you need to live without. Staying home as much as possible became one of the most important things you can do to take care of yourself and your family. In response to this change, LG developed new air-conditioners that help protect family members from the spread of germs, viruses, and dust particles that might be in the air. The new machines’ outstanding removal and air purification capabilities are complemented by durability and energy-saving efficiency for longer use.”
LG’s new air-conditioner series boast cutting-edge UVnano™ technology equipped in the LG DUALCOOL APX and IPX models, which removes 99.99% of germs from humidity, bacteria and viruses that might be in the air, inside the unit, or on the air-conditioner’s fan. The high removal efficiency of the UVnano™ technology was tested and certified by TUV Rheinland in South Korea in March 2021, together with the certified capability to prevent the growth of fungi and microbes that can cause allergies, colds, and lung infections. The IPX model comes with the Ionizer+ feature, which was also tested by TUV Rheinland, which sterilized 99.9% of all traces of SARS-CoV2 in controlled test conditions. LG’s new innovations can fast track consumers to a COVID-free new normal. The integrated air-purifier in the LG DUALCOOL APX series can also detect and filter out PM1.0 dust particles, which are 2.5 times smaller than PM2.5. Moreover, the 5-step Total Air Care System in the APX and IPX series also provides a complete air-purification system starting from the Pre-Filter, which detects dust particles in the first step, to Auto-Cleaning, which automatically cleans inside the airway to prevent bacteria and mold. With the new LG DUALCOOL, every member of the family can experience a cool, clean and fresh environment for better health at home.
