Scientists from around the world are working on understanding the impact of Indoor air quality (IAQ) on our health and life expectancy.
From home, work, to school and public space, Africans spend about 90 percent in today’s reality indoor time. It is more important than ever to take care of the best possible operation and maintenance of AC systems. All this to optimize air quality in closed spaces and at the same time reduce the risk of pollution impact on humans.
The current global pandemic also focuses on the adverse health effects of ineffective ventilation. Research has shown that in areas with higher levels of harmful substances, poorer air quality can exacerbate a range of health conditions, including respiratory and cardiovascular disease, with premature mortality worldwide.
In 2016, it was estimated that More than 80% of people living in urban areas that monitor air pollution are exposed to air quality levels that exceed WHO limits. These substances are in the air you breathe and they may or may not be visible. Some of them are produced by humans, e.g. exhaust fumes, but also fumes and smells from cooking or cleaning agents. Others – through the environment, i.e. pollen, bacteria and fine dust. Indoor air more concentrated than in open air is generally of poorer quality.
During full-scale cleaning, LG DUALCOOL and ARTCOOL Air Conditioners effectively filters the air, while maintaining a comfortable temperature at home. It can also actively neutralize airborne toxins in a three-step process.
•Automatic PM1.0 detection: the sensor recognizes air quality and dust particles up to PM1.0.
• Ion diffuser: the diffuser emits 5 million ions that kill nanoparticles in the air.
• Filtration system: magnetic micro-dust filter captures nanoparticles present in the air.
Already last year, the offer intended for commercial applications was expanded to include the DUAL Vane cassette air conditioner with air purification. LG offers a solution to the problem of ultrafine dust that is harmful to humans. DUAL Vane is a high-performance product, it ensures higher air quality over a large area – even up to 147 m2. A five-step cleaning system removes odors, germs and invisible fine PM 1.0 dust. Importantly, the filter can be cleaned with water – it allows for long-term use and provides a healthier interior.
The ARTCOOL series of air conditioners will be a natural addition to your interior, because their stylish design brings additional aesthetics to any room. Thanks to the mirror glass of LG ARTCOOL, the air conditioner becomes an art, reflecting the surrounding environment. Behind the beautiful shell are innovative technologies that have been developed by LG to care for the health and comfort of its customers.
The DUALCOOL & ARTCOOL Air Conditioners of this series are equipped with DUAL Inverter Compressor, which help for more efficient operation of the device. Conventional Compressors on typical air conditioners turn off and on in order to adjust the temperature, consuming a great deal of energy but Inverter Compressor constantly adjusts a compressor’s speed to maintain desired temperature levels.
This minimal fluctuation saves energy and ensures greater cooling comfort. Moreover, DUAL Inverter Compressor with power saving operation range frequency saves more energy than conventional compressor. Thanks to the DUAL Inverter Compressor and LG’s unique skew fan, air is expelled farther and faster and also operate at low sound levels which eliminate unnecessary noise and allow for smooth operation.
LG’s DUAL Inverter Compressor™ solves improper, ineffective and noisy problems, resulting in an air conditioner that cools faster, lasts longer, and runs quieter. With the 10year warranty on the compressor, users can enjoy the benefits of LG air conditioner for a longer period of time.
Clean air at home is taken care of by a special system for complete protection against pollution. The process of air purification takes place in the following steps, the first of which captures dust size over 10㎛ and bacteria called the Dual Protective Filtthe. This is closely followed by Microscopic dust and allergens which can be found in every household.
The Multi-Protection Filter removes and inactivates up to 99.9% of these harmful particles, providing a safer living environment for you. We also have the comprehensive Auto Cleaning function which prevents the forming of bacteria and mold on the heat exchanger and thus provides a more pleasant and comfortable environment for the user. The final end of this process is the sterilization of the exhaust air with the help of the Plasmaster ionizer, which eliminates bacteria up to 99% and reduces its concentration in the air to more than 99.9%.
LG also ensures the Comfort Sleep mode is added and it ensures the utmost comfort sleep environment by automatically adjusting 3 different functions (Indirect airflow/7hr off time set/Soft wind & sleep time logic), with one click.
The convenience doesn’t stop there, with the LG ThinQ app you can control your AC with just one push of a button. It connects to your mobile device and allows you to set up the device even when we are not at home.
It is especially worth paying attention to the cleanliness of the home air for families with small children, people with allergies, asthma and various respiratory diseases. The problem for them may be that, just like in the heating season, now, it’s hard to find a time when it’s worth ventilating. We may be in our workplace or sleeping deeply during the ideal time of day for ventilation, and it is not uncommon for pollen levels to remain extremely high for days or weeks. In such cases, a quality air purifier or an air purifier combined with air conditioning may come in handy.
The European Lung Foundation (ELF) to improve indoor air quality, it recommends the use of air purifiers in addition to ventilation, as they remove fine, small dust particles and pollen from the air. LG PuriCare ™ air purifiers can even eliminate harmful gases (such as released formaldehyde) that are common in the domestic environment.
The air drawn in at 360 ° passes through a filter system whose 6-level filter removes various types of dust and harmful gases. An air conditioner with an antibacterial filter can also perform a similar function, and we can also serve our health by choosing an air conditioner equipped with a plasma ionizer, such as the LG DualCool & Artcool Air Conditioner, which switches on immediately when excessively polluted air is detected. The ions emitted by such equipment bind to the harmful particles, thus neutralizing them with high efficiency, while also eliminating unpleasant odors.
