After a year of using the LG 1.5-ton dual inverter split AC, I can definitely say it’s a worthy investment for your home! Check out my review to know more about the AC’s features, pros and cons, what I liked and disliked about it.
And if you’re interested in knowing more about the dual inverter technology, I’ve explained that too. Just drop a comment in case you have any doubt.
Want an AC that excels in every aspect?
Consider your search over! This LG 1.5-ton dual inverter split AC is all you need to cool down at home!
The AC proves its worth in every aspect be it performance, durability, brand value, and savings!
At the core of this AC is the dual inverter compressor which gives you powerful cooling in the shortest time and noiselessly.
Unlike other non-inverter ACs that can get noisy every time the compressor starts and stops; this AC gives you a quiet function.
This is especially useful if you or a family-member is a light sleeper.
The AC also delivers a powerful cooling as soon as you turn it on, even if the temperature outside is as high as 52 degrees Celsius.
The AC doesn’t just come with the brand value of LG, a household name in India but also follows its reputation of making durable products.
For example, the AC’s condensers are made of 100% Copper which makes them more effective at exchanging heat.
The condensers are also given special coatings (labelled as Gold fin and Ocean Black technology) to protect them from humidity, dust, pollution, smoke, and sand.
The AC has a very affordable upfront price and also helps you save in the long run via reduced energy consumption.
The AC even warns you when there’s some problem like if the refrigerant is low and needs to be recharged.
The AC also works without a voltage stabilizer and is built to sustain voltage fluctuations.
The remote comes with all the standard settings like timer, swing, cooling modes, fan speed, energy saving mode, and so on.
If you’re looking for an AC that’s worth every Rupee it costs, then consider buying this LG 1.5-ton dual inverter split AC.
Benefits (Pros) of buying an LG 1.5-ton dual inverter AC
When my family bought this AC, we had just one main requirement— durability.
We wanted an AC that would last a good number of years before needing to be replaced. And an AC that would give us least trouble while we had it (the previous one kept breaking down).
You might have other things on your list like a quick cooling AC, noiseless AC, or a value for money buy.
Here’s what you can expect from the LG dual inverter Air conditioner:
Fast and Powerful cooling
(Even when the temperature is as high as 52 degrees Celsius)
Most ACs take some time to cool the room when turned ‘on’. But what if you’re not willing to wait?
This dual inverter AC begins cooling the room with a powerful blast, especially on the H’cool (Himalaya cool) mode.
The room gets cooler quickly even if it’s the peak summer season.
(Thanks to the dual inverter compressor and Ocean Black technology)
The compressor and the condenser are the 2 most important parts of an Air conditioner.
These 2 parts do the most work and have to face the harsh outside environment (as both parts are in the outer unit of a split AC).
This makes the compressor and condenser vulnerable to damage.
LG tackles this problem with its dual inverter technology which keeps the compressor running at different speeds (instead of repeated ‘on’ and ‘off’ technology in non-inverter compressors).
This protects the compressor and enhances its performance.
In case of the condenser coils, LG claims they are made of 100% grooved Copper, which makes them better heat exchangers.
On top of that, the condensers are also strengthened with the ‘Gold fin’ protection (against corrosion). And the ‘Ocean Black’ protection (against dust & pollutants).
What this means is the condensers are coated to prevent damage thus increasing their life span.
Do you restrict your AC usage to a minimum just so your electricity bill won’t blow up?
You can stop doing that now and let yourself bask in the coolness of this dual inverter AC without any worries. Why?
Because this AC helps you save up on your light bills with a low power consumption.
It is rated 5-star by the Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) and a 4.73 ISEER rating which is further proof of the AC’s cost-effectiveness.
With the ‘Energy saving’ mode ‘on’, the AC saves up to 57% energy by reducing its power consumption!
Refrigerant (also called as coolant) is the core of the AC’s cooling circuit. Without the refrigerant there would be no cool air to comfort you after a stressful day.
Refrigerant is a fluid that keeps going from liquid state to gaseous state and back to liquid state again & again.
Its job is to absorb heat from the room and throw it outside via the condenser in the external unit. It then comes back to collect another round of heat and the cycle repeats.
If a coolant comes is released in the outside air it can harm the Ozone layer and can add to global warming. This is why its important to know which coolant is safe for the environment and you.
This dual inverter AC by LG uses R-32 refrigerant which is from the HFC (Hydrofluorocarbons) family of refrigerants.
With zero Ozone depletion potential and modified Global Warming Potential of 472, R-32 is one of the eco-friendliest refrigerants out there.
It is also easy to recycle.
With this LG AC you don’t have to feel guilty of harming the environment as you enjoy the cool air in the comfort of your home.
Limitations (Cons) of the LG 1.5-ton dual inverter split AC
Frankly speaking, I have yet to find any issues with this LG dual inverter AC. It is just that good!
However, it does come with a slight inconvenience.
Needs regular servicing or maintenance
You must have heard of the golden saying— ‘A stitch in time saves nine.’
If you want to keep your AC up and running smoothly for many years to come, then it should be serviced regularly.
Cleaning and maintenance are a common need of all types of Air conditioners whether split or window, inverter or non-inverter.
The cleaning includes both wet and dry cleaning of the AC’s filters and an occasional charging of compressor gas.
Whether you clean the filters yourself or call up the service centre is up to you. (Gas charging, changing capacitor etc. can only be done by the service engineers).
Cleaning this AC’s filters however, is simple as the filters are conveniently located on top.
You don’t even have to take them out if the dust is less.
The frequency of cleaning depends of how soon the filters of your AC get clogged.
Usually its recommended to clean the filters once every month to avoid heavy clogging and break down.
But if you live away from any construction sites or heavy traffic areas, you can increase the duration to once in 2 or 3 months.
