LG Advances Smart Portable Air Conditioner

In time for warmer weather, LG Electronics USA has expanded its line of energy-efficient dual-inverter room air conditioners with the launch of a new 14,000 BTU Smart Wi-Fi-enabled Portable Air Conditioner.

The company’s proprietary Dual Inverter Compressor technology enables it to offer variable-speed compressor room air conditioners in the U.S., which deliver quiet, advanced cooling with a 40% improvement in energy efficiency on its best-performing model, the company said. The LG smart air conditioners with dual-inverter compressors continually adjust compressor speed to achieve the desired room temperature.

The Wi-Fi-enabled models make life easier for consumers on the go with the ability to turn the unit on or off, or to adjust and monitor the room temperature remotely via the LG SmartThinQ mobile app. While at home, users can also enjoy the convenience of operating their air conditioner via simple voice commands using Amazon Alexa and the Google Assistant.

The LG model LP1419IVSM 14,000 BTU portable air conditioner is ideal for coverage of areas up to 500 square feet, and is offered at a suggested retail price of $699.
