LG SHOWCASES ITS LATEST AIR CONDITIONERS AND AIR PURIFIERS AT INNOFEST ASIA 2015
- 02, 04 2015
KOTA KINABALU, Feb. 4, 2015 – LG Electronics (LG) will introduce its latest Residential Air Conditioning (RAC) and air purifier models at LG InnoFest 2015 (Innovation Festival), held in Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia from February 4-5. The event will provide LG’s business partners and media from all across Asia with an excellent opportunity to see the company’s advanced consumer-centric air conditioners firsthand. LG’s Inverter V residential models - the ARTCOOL, Mosquito Away, Standard and Prestige - and air purifiers - Mont Blanc and Alps - boast an impressive combination of energy efficiency and air-purification functions.
By implementing LG’s advanced Inverter V Technology, the residential air conditioners save energy without sacrificing performance. LG RACs use up to 60 percent less electricity than typical non-inverter RACs. The Mosquito Away, Standard and Prestige Inverter V employ LG’s Active Energy Control feature, enabling users to adjust electricity consumption for a personalized performance and greater energy savings. By pushing the Active Energy Control button on the remote once, the air conditioner’s power consumption is lowered to 80 percent, improving overall energy efficiency by 21 percent. Two presses cuts power consumption to just 60 percent, resulting in a 42 percent increase in total energy efficiency. The third setting boosts energy efficiency an impressive 57 percent and limits overall power consumption to 40 percent.
LG’s RAC series also features advanced air purification technology, helping protect the health of consumers and their families. The Plasmaster Ionizer Plus - standard on the ARTCOOL Inverter and Prestige - generates three million Plasmaster ions to sterilize 99.9 percent of the dangerous E.coli bacteria within just 30 minutes of operation, helping to banish unpleasant smells from the home. The Mosquito Away and Standard Inverter V’s Micro Protection Filter powered by 3M Technology creates strong electrostatic power in order to capture microscopic substances over the size of 0.3 micrometers, including pollen and fine particles, which can cause respiratory ailments.
LG RACs also come with smart features, such as the ARTCOOL Inverter V’s Voice Mate, which allows users to control the air conditioner’s main functions – including power, temperature and air volume – with simple verbal commands. In addition, the 1 Touch Soft Air feature of the Mosquito Away and Standard Inverter Vs provides subtle, indirect airflow and allows consumers to adjust the vane angle for optimal cooling or heating with just the press of a button.
LG’s air purifiers - which employ several advanced filters to drastically improve air quality in the home – will also be highlighted at InnoFest 2015. The Allergy HEPA Filter powered by 3M Technology eliminates particulate matter 2.5 (PM2.5), yellow dust, allergens, pollen and mold. The Triple Care filter simultaneously rids the formaldehyde, a highly toxic chemical that has the potential to cause serious illness, within only one hour of operation. It also removes smog-causing pollutants, such as sulfur dioxide (SO2) and nitrogen dioxide (NO2), and reduces the presence of unpleasant odors. Finally, the Plasmaster Ionizer generates over two million Plasmaster ions to sterilize the air, protecting users against potentially harmful contaminants including viruses, allergens and bacteria.
“We’re excited to be introducing our outstanding air solution products at InnoFest Asia 2015,” said Seong Jin Jo, Head of Home Appliance & Air Solution Company. “With our Inverter technology and high quality air purification and sterilization systems, these latest residential air conditioners and air purification solutions deliver a host of functional benefits and significant energy savings for consumers.”
