Air conditioning has gone solar at the LG stables, and that seems to be a great leap forward in thinking green. LG has made official Korea’s first eco-friendly residential hybrid air conditioner- F-Q232LASS, which makes use of solar energy as part of its power supply.
The feat comes following thoughts on how to achieve power generation through a solar cell module for air conditioning. The device combines power supply from the solar module attached to the top of the outdoor unit. LG’s new F-Q232LASS device is a 28,000BTU, or 76 sq m, standing-style air conditioner that has the capabilities to generate up to 70 watts of power per hour, providing enough energy to run the unit’s air purification process.
The most significant aspect about this innovation is that it not only offers a good amount of savings in electricity costs, but also comes across an extremely environmentally-friendly device. The company says that the LG’s hybrid air conditioner helps reduce approximately 212 kg of CO2 over 10 years.
Now that means an equivalent to growing 780 pine trees over the same period. Looks wise too, it is cute and makes for a good buy when it finally rolls out to retail stores.
