LG launches new air conditioner in ME
Amman, April 26, 2010
LG Electronics Air Conditioning Company (LG AC) has launched a new air conditioner designed to combat the Middle East’s climatic conditions and provide optimum hygiene in the home.
The dual-unit appliance ‘Titan’ includes a range of consumer-friendly features including high-grade health and safety measures; a more comfortable airflow and an inbuilt high degree of reliability even in the most extreme conditions.
The Titan comes with 'virus and allergy-safe' filters which help eliminate dust mite allergens and viruses such as Influenza A.
LG’s virus-safe filter, according to tests conducted by the Kitasato Research Center of Environmental Science in Japan, eradicated about 99.9 per cent of Influenza A viruses in 24 hours; while the allergy-safe filter has been certified by the British Allergy Foundation (BAF) for its anti-allergenic properties, said a statement.
In addition, the Titan’s cyclotron plasma filter, a feature common to LG air conditioners, collects up to 30 per cent more dust than conventional plasma filters.
“Lifestyles in the Levant have changed dramatically over recent years, influencing the way people live, their diets and habits, what products are available in the shops and the environmental conditions that affect health at work and at home,” said the managing director at LG Electronics Levant, Kevin Cha.
The Titan also boasts an airflow of up to 10 metres, enough to cover practically any large room in the house, its dynamic double vanes have six horizontal and five vertical swing modes, ensuring that the air conditioner can target pretty much any spot in the room, at almost any power. It alsooperates at very low noise levels: at 34dB, it is only slightly noisier than an empty studio (20dB) and quieter than the average public library (40dB).
The world’s first air conditioner to boast dual units, the Titan’s cooling system works by placing the main unit on one wall, and the second, called the air cruiser, on the opposite wall. This set up cools the room up to 40 per cent faster than with regular air conditioners, and disperses cool air 70 per cent more equally around the room.-TradeArabia News Service
