image01SYDNEY, 16 June 2015 – Winter has now well and truly set in, and with it the chilly weather, but this doesn’t mean that consumers need to wrap up in fuzzy jumpers and prepare  countless cups of tea. There’s another solution thanks to LG Electronics Australia’s (LG) line of technologically savvy air conditioners. LG’s split system air conditioners offer a suite of features such as Active Energy Control and Wi-Fi Smart Control to help to keep consumers’ homes toasty with the added advantage of allowing them to manage energy expenditure.

LG surveyed Australian air conditioner owners late last year and discovered:

  • • A majority of Australians surveyed who own air conditioners said saving money on their electricity bill was important to them
  • • Half of Australians surveyed who own air conditioners said they did not understand the breakdown of their electricity bill

Addressing this issue, LG has designed its air conditioners to give Australians more ways to take control of their energy consumption.

That’s why our premium split system air conditioners offer a number of options for Australians to take control of their energy usage and stay warm during the cooler months.”

So what exactly are these ‘hot’ features in LG’s Smart Air Conditioners?


Active Energy Control

Take control of your energy consumption with the simple press of a button. Unlike sensor technology that controls temperature by detecting movement in the home, Active Energy Control (AEC) offers three levels to cap power consumption (80, 60 and 40 per cent) for individual energy-saving needs. Depending on how many people are in the room and what consumers are doing, this allows users to cap the energy consumption of their air conditioner, thereby improving energy efficiency and reducing power consumption at a reduced heating output.


Wi-Fi Smart Control (Premium Series Only)

All they need to do is simply set the air conditioner to an ideal temperature when they leave the office or after a cold day outside. Likewise, forgetful types can also use the App to turn the AC off if it is accidentally left on. Better yet, the App also provides users with real-time energy usage information, alerting them when electricity consumption has reached a pre-set limit.  

An often overlooked form of heating, reverse split system air conditioners can provide efficient heating solutions for the home. According to Ausgrid*, reverse cycle air conditioners only have a $37 per month average usage cost and can be sized or zoned for optimum efficiency. In last November’s issue of Choice magazine, three split-system reverse-cycle P, S and W air conditioner models outperformed all other competitors for heating efficiency in the large (6.1kw and over) category.  

LG offers a gamut of air conditioners for different consumer needs and room sizes. The LG Classic (S) air conditioners include Active Energy Control, while the Premium (P) range may be purchased from specialist retailers and includes Wi-Fi Smart Control. The W model may be purchased at Harvey Norman and includes a WLAN Module. With the P series, the WLAN module can be purchased separately from dealers.
