The New LG Water Heater with Huge Energy Saving Potential
Appliance brand LG is expanding its range to include an innovative new water heater that’s set to offer consumers huge savings on their heating bills. The LG energy saving Inverter Heat Pump Water Heater promises fast and effective water heating with up to 74 per cent less electricity consumption which can reduce running costs.
Additional smart features allow users to control settings from inside the home. The water heater possesses a modern design that makes the typical out of sight positioning of a unit no longer so necessary. The new LG water heater launches in the US and Europe in early 2021. LG Australia is yet to provide a local release date or local pricing information.
There will be two LG heat pump water heater sizes available. A 200-litre capacity model with A+ energy efficiency and a 270 litre model with A++ efficiency (these ratings are based on the UK system).
LG has equipped its new water heater with dual inverter compressor technology, which uses two heat sources, so consumers are never left without hot water. The standard method of heating is achieved using an internal element and an additional heat pump works like an air conditioner to generate heat using refrigerant gas.
The dual functions allow the system to use up to 74 per cent less energy per year when compared to conventional electric water heaters. LG says the technology ensures users will never go without hot water even during times of heavy use.
When connected to WiFi, homeowners can manage and monitor systems remotely and diagnose potential issues without phoning customer service. Users can also check the water temperature in real time via the LG ThinQ app or the display screen presented on the heater’s exterior.
LG has produced one of the first consumer-grade water heaters to function using heat pump technology. The potential savings could make this upcoming system truly stand out from the competition.
The LG energy saving Inverter Heat Pump Water Heater is currently on display for all to see at LG’s CES 2021 virtual exhibition.
