Inverter compressor boosts heating performance and lowers energy consumption while smart features deliver enhanced convenience  –  

LG Electronics (LG) will be presenting its advanced, energy-saving inverter heat pump water heater at the international consumer electronics show, CES 2021. A CES Innovation Award-winner, the new model is powered by LG’s renowned dual-inverter compressor, which promotes fast and effective water heating, all the while delivering lower electricity consumption and running costs. Furthermore, the highly efficient and durable smart appliance is compatible with an app for convenient control from inside or outside the home.

LG’s dual-inverter compressor heats water using condensation heat generated in the process of compressing and circulating refrigerant. The result is a water heater which uses as much as 74% less energy to operate annually than a conventional electric water heater.

The new product will be available in 200-liter and 270-liter capacity versions, featuring impressive energy efficiency ratings of A+ and A++, respectively. In addition, the highly durable compressor and water tank are covered by a 10-year warranty.

LG’s efficient system uses heat from the air to further reduce electricity usage, while its two internal heat sources – heat pump and heater – ensure that users will never have to go without hot water even in times of heavy use.

The smart inverter heat pump water heater is Wi-Fi-enabled, allowing it to work seamlessly with LG’s mobile ThinQ app, available on both Android and iOS devices. With the app, homeowners can manage and monitor the system remotely, receive regular maintenance reminders and diagnose certain issues without having to call customer service. Users can also check the water temperature in real-time and use the scheduling function to set the time and duration of operation.

A winner of every major product design award – iF Design, Red Dot, IDEA – this product has a sleek, modern style in line with LG’s latest premium home appliances and is easy to install as well. The water heater will be on display in LG’s CES 2021 virtual exhibition booth (http://exhibition.LG.com) from 11 January 2021.
