LG INTRODUCES THE HEALTH+ INVERTER AIR CONDITIONER WITH HIGHEST EER IN RP
Manila, March 9, 2010 - LG Electronics (LG), the global No. 1 brand in air conditioner for nine straight years, introduces the LG Health+ Inverter air conditioner in the Philippines. The LG Health+ Inverter has 15.3 EER, the highest in the Philippines; the world’s lowest operating noise level of a mere 19dB; and the highest energy-efficiency, saving up to 60-percent compared to previous non inverter model. It also offers a range of healthcare features designed to help protect consumers from allergens and viruses like A(H1N1), while it upgrades the home environment with its stylish design.
“The LG Health+ Inverter features energy savings, silence, safety and stylish design to provide clear benefits to consumers looking for basic yet powerful performance,” said Raymond Hernandez, corporate marketing head of LG Electronics Philippines.
The LG Health+ Inverter boasts of the highest Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER) at 15.30 in the Philippines. LG’s cutting-edge inverter technology enables the new air conditioner to consume less energy than conventional air conditioners and to cool a room extremely fast.
To ensure a good night’s sleep, the LG Health+ Inverter reduces operating noise to 19dB, which is almost inaudible to humans. When the air conditioner is activated, the compressor operates at maximum speed to reach the desired temperature quickly. Unlike conventional air conditioners, the LG Health+ Inverter adjusts and varies compressor speed once the desired temperature is achieved to maintain a constant temperature. LG’s Inverter technology plays a critical role in minimizing noise and vibration, which helps create a more comfortable environment.
In terms of safety, the LG Health+ Inverter demonstrates unrivaled health care features by employing LG’s advanced multi-filter system. Contaminated air floating inside the home is purified through multi filters: an anti-bacterial pre-filter, a triple filter for deodorization, plasma filter for sterilization, a virus safety filter, especially for A(H1N1) and bird flu, allergy free filter, and finally an ionizer for sterilization. The multi-filter system sets users free from harmful bacteria, viruses, germs and nasty smells.
According to tests conducted by the KITASATO Research Center of Environmental Science in Japan, 99.9 percent of A(H1N1) viruses were killed in 24 hours by LG Health+ Inverter’s total virus filter system. LG’s technology helps protect families from the H1N1 virus, which is currently prevailing worldwide. In addition, the Health+ Inverter has received certification for anti-allergenic functionality from the British Allergy Foundation in the UK and anti- bird flu functionality from authorities including the Osaka Prefectural Institute in Japan and the FITI Testing and Research Institute in Korea.
Like other LG products, the Health+ Inverter has been designed to harmonize with most home environments. With its sleek, attractive and streamlined look, it will help create a more pleasant environment and improve quality of life for consumers.
“Over the decades, LG’s air conditioners have shown leadership through technological innovation and our commitment to customers. We are expecting the Health+ Inverter to upgrade lives of the consumers,” Hernandez said.
In addition to the benefits of energy savings, silence safety, and stylish design, the LG Health+ Inverter offers an Auto Cleaning function for easier maintenance and a healthier environment. It also features increased durability thanks to the presence an anti-corrosive coating on the heat exchanger’s surface. It also includes an installation-friendly design with ample space for piping, instructions on the installation plate and a detachable bottom cover.
With its range of features and modern design, LG’s room air conditioners are set to help consumers enjoy healthy and comfortable lives.
