Consumer electronics company, LG Electronics says it is bolstering the residential air conditioner market with its new range of airconditioners tagged Artcool Dual Inverter Air Conditioners.
The products are equipped with the Genmode function, which makes it possible for the AC to work on small generators.
LG says that irregular supply of power or low voltage does not affect the normal functioning of the AC because of an inbuilt voltcare function.
LG’s Dual inverter compressor technology enables the Artcool to operate at a pleasantly low noise level, enabling users to relax or rest comfortably without the distracting hum of the air conditioner. Meanwhile, the durability and reliability of the compressor are guaranteed under its 10-year warranty.
Head, Corporate Marketing, LG Electronics, West Africa, Mr Hari Elluru, while unveiling the products in Lagos, Wednesday, said: “The new Artcool Mirror black embodies beauty, power and performance while functioning as the centrepiece to any stylish, modern living room. The ultra-sleek black mirror and frame add an extra touch of elegance to its already stunning appearance, making it ideal for premium style homes.
“The eye-catching aesthetic design of the appliance is sure to attract attention just as its convenient features are guaranteed to enhance usability,” he said.
Commenting on the 70 per cent energy saving and 40 per cent fast cooling feature of the new product, Elluru said the “Inverter Compressor constantly adjusts a compressor’s speed to maintain desired temperature levels. Moreover, dual inverter compressor with power-saving operation range frequency saves more energy than the conventional compressor. Thanks to the Dual Inverter Compressor, the air is expelled farther and faster.”
He added that Artcool incorporates an Ionizer feature, which releases up to three million ions that effectively sterilize harmful particles and neutralize odours at the same time.
Embedded with advanced Wi-Fi technology, LG’s SmartThinQ application allows users to easily control the appliance from both inside and outside the home.
The intelligent application gives household members various personalized options, allowing them to choose and save their preferred air conditioning temperatures.
