LG unveils environmentally friendly refrigerators

LG Electronics has introduced its latest line of advanced refrigerators in Saudi Arabia.
Designed with Saudi consumers in mind, LG claims the new refrigerators deliver convenience enhancing features, including dual door-in-door system, which keeps food fresh longer and helps the interior stay better organized.
“The new cutting-edge lineup is designed to meet the needs of eco-conscious Saudi consumers looking to maximize their convenience in the kitchen,” the company stated.
LG’s bottom-freezer refrigerators are industry leaders in efficiency, with a total no frost energy grade rating of A+++ -20 percent made possible by the refrigerator’s inverter linear compressor.
This advanced compressor utilizes a straight piston drive instead of the conventional one, resulting in less internal friction, higher reliability and greater durability with less noise.
LG refrigerators feature inverter linear compressors, which is nearly 32 percent more energy-efficient and up to 25 percent quieter than their non-inverter counterparts. The compressor is of high durability and is backed by 10-year warranty.
LG made consumers’ lives easier with its innovative door-in-door technology to give family members quick access to frequently sought food items.
The right door-in-door compartment is accessible from the outside at the push of a button, making the space perfect for items that are frequently consumed by every member of the family, such as snacks and drinks.
The left can be opened with the hidden easy open handle at the bottom of the door and is ideal for storing essential cooking ingredients such as pre-chopped vegetables, condiments and sauces.
Both compartments are equipped with moving baskets, enabling users to easily adjust the height of the internal compartments as they see fit.
“These advanced door-in-door refrigerators from LG provide innovative solutions in every home. They are perfectly designed to match the Saudi environment,” said Deuk Soo Ahn, president of Saudi LG Electronics.
