LG’s Smart InstaView™: Enhanced Energy Saving Qualities
Studies have shown that a refrigerator is opened at least 66 times in a day, and 48.5% of that number, opens the refrigerator door without any specific reasons. This results in a huge amount of cold air loss and energy consumption where consumers are mostly unaware of.
LG’s Smart InstaView™ refrigerator provides improved accessibility with the invention of its special Knock-On transparent Door-in-Door design that enables users to check on items inside without opening the door. This saves cold air loss and encourages energy saving qualities. The Hygiene Fresh+ feature eliminates contaminated air inside the refrigerator, and maintains the daily freshness of food for the whole family. LG’s Hygiene Fresh+ acts like an interior air purification system that employs a multi-layer filter to help sterilize and remove bacteria, viruses, mold spores and odors from within the fridge. Further to this food freshness feature, the LG Smart InstaView™ reduces up to 42 percent less fluctuation to maintain temperature of food, longer lasting freshness. Compared to regular inverter compressors that have a higher fluctuation of +1 degrees, the LG Smart InstaView™ inverter linear compressor lowers the fluctuation by half (+0.5 degrees). This enables food to stay fresher, at a longer period of time.
Refrigerator is an appliance that runs 24-hours throughout the year, consumers seek for product that offers a valued investment durable in the long run – energy saving, durability, and cost-efficient. LG’s Inverter Linear Compressor addresses these concerns by generating less internal friction for lower energy consumption, noise and backed with a 10-year warranty.
