LG Electronics has unveiled its new bottom-freezer refrigerator at the IFA 2018 (Aug. 31-Sept.5) in Berlin, Germany. The company claimed the new product stands out from the competition with market-leading energy efficiency as well as durability and an array of convenience-enhancing features. The refrigerator is the first in the industry to come with a 20-year warranty for its internal compressor.
The refrigerator’s powerhouse is the LG Inverter Linear Compressor, which is 32 percent more energy efficient than conventional compressors. This and a range of other efficient features combine to cut the bottom-freezer refrigerator power consumption and give an energy rating of A+++-40 percent. This means that the refrigerator uses 40 percent less power than models with an A+++ energy rating and will make it easier to save on electric bills.
Internally, the refrigerator is also equipped with a range of freshness-enhancing features. Linear Cooling keeps temperature fluctuation within ±0.5˚C while Fresh Balancer and Fresh Converter give users simplified control over the humidity and temperature to create ideal conditions for each food type.
“LG has long worked to develop a bottom-freezer refrigerator that sets new standards in not just energy savings and durability but also design and the new Centum System bottom-freezer refrigerator represents the culmination of these efforts,” said Song Dae-hyun, president of LG Electronics and Home Appliance and Air Solution Company. “Our premium Centum System bottom-freezer will help cement LG’s long-standing leadership in the global premium refrigerator market.”
