The LG R32 Refrigerant: The Environmentally, Friendly Refrigerant 

Are you planning to upgrade your air-conditioner at your home? Are you searching for environmentally friendly air-conditioner for your new home that you are moving into? If you are looking for a new air-conditioner, check out the LG R32 refrigerant.

Taking ecological responsibility to the next level, LG announced the R32 refrigerant, they have adopted the industry’s next-generation R32 refrigerant for its single and multi-split air conditioners in commercial and residential settings. This energy-efficient R32 refrigerant is combined with LG air conditioners’ intelligent features and innovative product design to deliver cool air in a greener way.

With zero ozone depletion potential and significantly lower global warming potential (GWP) compared to the mainstream R410A refrigerant (1), the R32 refrigerant is widely known to be more environmentally friendly for Mother Nature. The R32 conveys heat efficiently and offers a higher cooling capacity, so less energy is required to cool indoor spaces – this highlights the industry’s gold standard in heat transfer. Users can then reduce their carbon footprint and enjoy more significant savings on electricity costs. The R32, a single-component refrigerant, can also be easily recycled or reused, minimising the environmental impact of HVAC equipment, making it the refrigerant of choice for many businesses like LG today.

Unique to its multi-split residential air conditioners line-up, LG also developed the peak current control technology to manage energy consumption efficiently. Users can set a maximum consumption level to limit the total power used. An internal test result shows that usage patterns at 1.9kW and 1.7kW compared to the maximum power consumption of 2.5kW will help to save 24 per cent and 32 per cent energy, respectively (2).

With an excellent 5-tick rating on Singapore’s Energy Guide (3), LG’s Multi-Split Smart Inverter Air-Conditioner has a coefficient of performance (COP) that surpasses regulatory expectations (4). The Dual Inverter Compressor is also structured to operate with low vibration and less noise, resulting in optimised airflow that cools the room quickly and ensures greater energy efficiency.

The compact size of the outdoor unit makes it easy to install, perfect for those with HDBs looking to upgrade their air-cooling systems. To help users make an informed decision when choosing new air conditioners, LG’s air conditioners that use the R32 refrigerant will be identified with a Climate-Friendly label.

LG PuriCare™ AeroTower™ Air Purifying Fan lets you Enjoy Clean, Cool Air
