ENERGY STAR® 2018 Emerging Technology Award1

ENERGY STAR® 2018 Emerging Technology Award

The ENERGY STAR® Emerging Technology Award is given to innovative technologies that meet rigorous performance criteria to reduce energy use and lower greenhouse gas emissions, without sacrificing features or functionality.
1. Inverter Technology is a key attribute of LG’s new room air conditioners. It is used in conjunction with a variable-speed compressor and adjusts the compressor motor speed to regulate temperature. This is more energy efficient than non-Inverter Technology room air conditioners, which turns the compressor either on or off to regulate temperature. In Department of Energy approved testing, LG’s Inverter room air conditioner model (LW1817IVSM) showed a 25% Combined Energy Efficiency Ratio (CEER) positive difference when compared with the ENERGY STAR® minimum CEER requirement.
2. The Energy Guide label estimates how much energy the appliance uses, compares energy use of similar products, and lists approximate annual operating costs.
3. The estimated annual energy cost is based on a national average electricity cost of 13 cents per kWh and seasonal use of 8 hours a day over a 3-month period. Your exact costs will depend on local utility rates and the type and source of your energy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Quiet A/C We live in a stucco arts & crafts bungalow and we turned the attic into a bedroom. This unit cools that area more than adequately. AND in that space it’s whisper quiet. Very pleased with this A/C.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I bought the LG air conditioner May 2018. Absolutely HORRIBLE. This year it stopped cooling my room. Don’t waste your money on this brand. It will cool at about 80 degrees but when it hits the 90’s with humidity, it doesn’t work.

I have a 40" wide window, will the side curtains stretch to fit that?

Asked by: serpanterra
Hello Serpanterra. The LG 18,000 BTU DUAL Inverter Smart wi-fi Enabled Window Air Conditioner, Model # LW1817IVSM is designed for installation in standard single or double-hung windows with actual opening widths from 29" to 41". That air conditioner has a width of 25.98" so when it is placed centrally in your 40" opening, you will have openings of 7.01" on either side of the air conditioner. The curtains are designed to cover an opening of 41" which means they will cover up to 7.51" on either side of the air conditioner after installation so they will adequately cover your 40" opening...^IFV

I am looking for a quiet thru wall unit.does LG make a dual inverter they wall unit or something comparable??

Asked by: Michael z
I just had this model (professionally) recommended and installed by an HVAC company to replace a 40 year old window unit that had been instaled through the wall. In my case, the hole in the wall was already framed out like a window but with no actual window. The framing for it is sturdy and all the grills outside are free and clear. So I suppose you could do it if you have a similar framed out space for it. And it is very quiet.

Will this unit fit inside a 26.5 inch wide window opening if used without side fillers?

Asked by: daveocoolguy
The LG 18,000 BTU DUAL Inverter Smart wi-fi Enabled Window Air Conditioner, Model # LW1817IVSM has a width of 26" without the front grille so it will fit into an opening of 26 1/2", but you definitely cannot use the left and right curtain panels, so you will need to find some way of closing the openings on either side of the air conditioner after installation. You also need to take into consideration that you only have a 1/4" of room on either side of the air conditioner to work with when installing it which will not be enough space to fit your hands through to hold the unit securely while installing it. The unit weighs 110 lbs and that might be a challenge if you cannot get your hands around the unit to hold is securely to install it...^IFV

I'm really interested in this unit....Can it be installed through the wall? I want to replace and existing unit that measures 26x18 approximately.

Asked by: zvocio
Your interest in the LG 18,000 BTU DUAL Inverter Smart wi-fi Enabled Window Air Conditioner, Model # LW1817IVSM is greatly appreciated. This air conditioner requires a standard single-hung or double- hung window for proper installation. It is designed for installation in standard single-hung or double-hung windows with actual opening widths from 29" to 41". The top and bottom window sashes must open sufficiently to allow a clear vertical opening of 19" from the bottom of the upper sash to the inside sill. The outside of the cabinet must extend outward for at least 12" and there should be no obstacles, such as a fence or wall, within 20" from the back of the cabinet because it will prevent heat radiation of the condenser. Restriction of outside air will greatly reduce the cooling efficiency of the air conditioner. All side louvers of the cabinet must remain exposed to the outside of the structure and other types of non-window installations, including using wall sleeves, or holes in walls are not recommended...^IFV
