LG Electronics has rolled out new energy-efficient technologies and products, reaffirming its commitment to realizing a sustainable future.
The products which include an LG Therma VTM R290 Monobloc Air-to-Water Heat Pump (AWHP) and the LG DUAL Inverter Heat Pump™ dryer were unveiled during a media briefing at the IFA 2023, centred on the importance of electrification and highlighted the use of advanced core technologies to enhance energy efficiency.
The move is also part of LG’s in-house development and manufacturing strategy to actively drive advancements in fundamental components, including the compressors and motors used in LG heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems.
Commenting on the rollout LG Electronics EA Managing Director Dongwon Lee said the new innovations are aimed at delivering appliances that offer unparalleled performance and reliability.
“The advanced technologies and sustainable solutions introduced at our tech briefing at IFA 2023 are designed to help consumers live better, both now and in the future. Moving forward, through our environmentally-conscious home appliances and business strategy, we will continue to make a positive difference for people and the planet.” Said Dongwon Lee.
Of the new products, the LG Therma VTM R290 Monobloc Air-to-Water Heat Pump (AWHP) provides powerful heating to help create a warm, comfortable indoor environment. The cutting-edge AWHP is equipped with an array of efficiency-boosting LG technologies and utilizes R290 refrigerant, which has a Global Warming Potential (GWP) of only three. The solution also ensures convenient maintenance with a remote support feature that enables quick software updates and the easy application of installer settings.
The heat pump technology applied to the Therma V R290 Monobloc can also be found in a variety of LG’s efficient home appliances, including its heat pump dryers and washer-dryer model. Employing two cylinders that work simultaneously to compress the refrigerant, the LG DUAL Inverter Heat Pump™ dryer achieves faster drying times and provides a better performance than a conventional dryer.
In addition, the recently unveiled LG SIGNATURE second-generation washer-dryer features the company’s own inverter heat pump drying module, which boosts energy efficiency, improves drying results and reduces fabric damage.
LG’s own smart home platform, LG ThinQ™, lets users seamlessly connect all of their household appliances for a smarter, more convenient user experience. The ThinQ app makes it possible to effortlessly control each appliance, manage the entire HVAC system, and monitor energy storage and consumption in real time.
