Advanced Compressor technology from LG recognised for efficiencies
Refrigerators from LG Electronics featuring the company’s Inverter Linear Compressor technology have been recognised by the Association for Electrical, Electronic and Information Technologies (VDE), for their energy efficiency and quiet performance.
VDE, one of Europe’s largest and most respected scientific and technical associations, conducts around 100,000 tests annually for national and international manufacturers such as LG.
The tests concluded that LG refrigerators with Inverter Linear Compressor technology proved to be around 32% more energy efficient than those equipped with conventional reciprocating compressors, contributing significantly to lower electricity bills. VDE also noted that LG’s product was approximately 25% quieter than a refrigerator powered by a reciprocating compressor. Measured from the front of the appliance, the Inverter Linear Compressor model emitted 22dB, equivalent to the sound level of a quiet bedroom.
The use of the Compressor also results in greater reliability and durability.
“We are extremely proud to have the exceptional qualities of our Inverter Linear Compressor refrigerators confirmed by an organisation as prestigious as VDE,” said Seong-jin Jo, President and CEO of the LG Home Appliances Company. “Since 2001, our Inverter Linear Compressor models have been quietly delivering convenience and energy savings to customers worldwide. It’s gratifying to see such innovation being rewarded.”
