I recall as newlyweds, our very first “big ticket” purchase was an air-conditioning unit. Coming from our respective family homes—with old, rickety aircons that have seen us through our acne-ladened teenage years to early adulthood—we wanted to start FRESH with a very “smart adult” investment. So together we decided “Let’s get an INVERTER aircon!”. And since then it has been one of our most prized possessions! It has saved us hundreds of pesos on our monthly Meralco bill and it’s something I always urge newlyweds to invest in—next to a cozy bed of course!
Now that we are expanding into a family of 4 (a little bun in the oven coming this April!), we will be moving into a new house in a few months—and of course, one of the first things we’ve had to consider was the electricity cost of moving into a slightly bigger space. Because of our satisfactory experience with Inverter Technology, it came as a no brainer to invest in another inverter aircon.
This time we around we got the newly launched DUAL COOL RAC from LG Philippines. I’m totally geeking out over this new acquisition–if we can call it that, hahaha—because aircons are so much of a part of our everyday lives in the Philippines. We live in a tropical country, right next to the equator, making us a SUN favorite! Heat is already a GIVEN for us and so having a GOOD aircon is no longer just a luxury, it’s really an investment. I personally chose this DUAL COOL RAC from LG because of the savings—music to my husband’s ears.
“The Dual Cool RAC comes equipped with a Smart Inverter Compressor and Dual Inverter Compressor which reduces energy consumption by up to 70 percent. The Dual Inverter Compressor motor has a wide rotational frequency and a higher speed cooling range than a conventional compressor, allowing the RAC to cool more quickly, last longer and run more quietly. So no matter how hot it is outside, the RAC distributes cool air immediately to every corner in the room. The unit has a 25 percent larger skew fan which expels powerful blasts of air through its large outlet, optimally designed to fill spaces with cool air faster and farther.”
There are many inverter aircons in the market, YES, but what sets this line apart from the competitors are it’s health and sanitation benefits that go beyond just cooling your home. If you’re a mom like me, you’ll actually get kilig with this list of special qualities that this Dual Cool RAC from LG has to offer:
- Plasmaster Ionizer Plus, which disseminates over three million ions to sterilize and deodorize not only the air going through the RAC, but all surrounding harmful substances;
My note: This makes it perfect for rooms where your kids will be spending a lot of time in—think baby nurseries, children’s playrooms, even your living room!
- LG’s trademark Mosquito Away, which repels up on 82.7 percent of mosquitoes through an ultrasonic sound which can be activated even when the RAC is not running;
My note: This is a very high and impressive number if you ask me! I despise mosquitoes! Theo had dengue when he just turned one last year and it was terrifying. This aircon can help repel those pesky mosquitoes!!! Imagine that!
- Micro Dust Filter, a high-airflow, low-noise filter which employs a strong electrostatic charge on its surface to attract, trap and eliminate harmful microscopic substances and deliver fresh, clean air; and
My note: I personally suffer from eczema and am very sensitive to dust. This is a HUGE plus for me as this means I’ll have less skin flare ups and allergy attacks!
- Auto Cleaning, a comprehensive cleaning function which prevents the formation of bacteria and mold on the heat exchanger. By eliminating the humidity and germs left in the RAC, the auto cleaning function removes all substances that might be harmful to human body, keeps the indoor environment odor-less and maintains the cooling performance and longevity of the RAC even after 10 years of usage.
My note: THIS HAD ME SOLD!!! Auto-cleaning function?!?!?! This definitely puts this on a whole new level. An aircon that can clean itself and can even last for a full decade (and more with proper care!), this is not only a germaphobe’s dream aircon, it is a budget friendly unit as well because it’ll last for many years.
