LG Electronics USA has expanded its portfolio of energy-efficient residential air care products to include the LG PuriCare 50-pint dehumidifier with drain pump. The model joins an existing roster of drain tank dehumidifiers, as well as room air conditioners that deliver energy savings with the company’s dual inverter compressor technology.
The new Energy Star certified LG PuriCare dehumidifier (model UD501KOJ5) offers smart capabilities and user-friendly features that make it more ergonomic and efficient for residential use. Its built-in pump continuously drains water directly into a sink, out a window or down a drain. Additionally, its drain tank option sends an alert when full and features auto-shut off for added peace of mind.
It also features a convenient water bucket and tray handle, and the unit’s four smooth rolling wheels make it easy to move. With large, clear displays, users can easily check and control humidity levels, and monitor or control the unit from anywhere via the LG ThinQ smartphone app. Designed with safety in mind, the safety standby mode prevents overheating, and internal components are made of thermally resistant materials.
LG PuriCare dehumidifiers are available now at retailers nationwide. The 50-pint dehumidifier with drain pump and Wi-Fi connectivity is offered at a suggested retail price of $329. The unit without smart functions is offered at a suggested retail price of $299.
