Ever wanted water heater to be part of your smart home ecosystem? Well, soon you may be able to realize that dream with LG Inverter Heat Pump Water Heater. And thanks to LG’s design, this is one water heater that you probably won’t mind putting out in the open. I mean, just look at this thing. Does it even look like a water heater?
Looks aside, the LG Inverter Heat Pump Water Heater boasts LG’s DUAL Inverter Compressor which promised to deliver fast and effective water heating while consuming less electricity and thereby, lowering your running costs.
Best of all, IMHO, it works with LG ThinQ app, allowing you to control it inside or outside of your humble abode, check the water temperature in real-time and schedule time and duration of operation. And yes, it is totally WiFi-enabled.
Make no mistake, though. The LG Inverter Heat Pump Water Heater isn’t your run-of-the-mill electric or gas heater. It uses heat generated in the process of compressing and circulating refrigerant to heat water. This, LG said, result in using up to 74% less energy to operate annually over conventional electric water heater.
In addition to the heat pump and heater, the device also leverages on the heat from the air to further reduce electricity consumption.
The LG Inverter Heat Pump Water Heater, which is offered in a choice of 200-liter and 270-liter capacity, will hit the Europe and North America markets sometime in the beginning of Q1 2021. Meanwhile, expect to see the LG Inverter Heat Pump Water Heater showing up at the LG’s CES 2021 virtual exhibition booth from January 11, 2021.
