LG Electronics launch new line of single commercial airconditioner in the Philippines

by E. Lorete / /

Air-conditioning is a necessity for anyone living in Metro Manila. It keeps our residences, including office spaces and even factories or buildings relatively cool – what more healthier with cleaner air. LG Electronics Philippines knows these defining feature qualities of a dependable, healthy and energy saving airconditioning system.

As a leader in the HVAC industry, LG Electronics (LG), during its recent media conference in Solaire Hotel in Pasay City, Manila, formally introduced its brand new 2020 line up for single commercial airconditioners (CAC). Detailed for restaurants, small and medium sized stores and small and medium sized offices, new aircon series includes floor standing, ceiling mounted cassette, 1 way ceiling cassette, ceiling suspended, and ceiling concealed duct. 

New LG R1 Compressor

Global Competitiveness Report by the World Economic Forum (WEF) states that electricity in the Philippines ranks a lowly 92nd globally, meaning the price of electricity is very high, making airconditioning not feasible for some households due to costs involved. That changes with LG’s next generation compressor the R1 compressor designed with a shaft through button compression structure. R1 resolves the endemic problem of a relatively low efficiency in the widely used rotary compressor and improves the tiling motion of scroll. By virtue of the compressor, it even lowers the noise to 4dB and reduces its weight by 20%. 

In fact, compared to other brands producing single CAC operating with a non-inverter compressor, all of LG’s CAC is operated with energy saving inverters. As a result, LG Smart Inverter helps bring down price of electricity by 25 percent compared to an on/off model. LG, during its media discussion, said aircon users can expect a quick return on investment within 20 months by virtue of energy savings. 

Healthy Air Flow

LG’s aircon design enables airflow to cool in a long distance. LG’s floor standing aircon can reach up to 20 meters, making it possible to cool a room even if it is far unit. For health conscious consumers, LG’s latest aircon includes this five step air cleaning feature that reduces maintenance costs and makes upkeep simple and fuss-free. In terms of performance, LG aircon comes with a wide operation range as low as -15’C and as high as 48’C outdoor temperature.
LG Dual Vane Cassette Air-Con

Keeping with aircon model inverter designs, LG launched for the Philippine market its Dual Vane Cassette Aircon, an upgraded version of the 4-Way Ceiling Cassette, and Round Cassette Aircon which raised expectations and while setting the bar high for LG. These products will be launched in the second quarter of 2020 following the LG CAC product line launch in the Philippines.

In addition, LG Dual Vane Cassette is equipped with innovative dual vane technology. It features eight vanes, allowing aircon to manage air flow more precisel and while providing optimized air flow for users. Dual Vane Cassette comes with siix different modes, included three patented ones, offering the best airflow over various spaces.

With a premium round design, the Round Cassette provides perfect circular air flow without any blind spot by minimizing junctions whereas a conventional round cassette only has three outlets to provide three-way air flow with blind spots. LG top round design with so-called crystal vances, features that enables users to control wind direction in six steps compared to current design which provides only 4-steps. Moreover, the 3D fan inceases air flow rate by 5 percent while lowering noise. With a larger flow rate, cooling rate becomes 30 percent faster.

“Last year, sales of LG Electronics in the Philippines have grown significantl and HVAC business was an important part of it,” said inkwun Hen, Managing Director of LG Electronics in the Philippines. “LG’s HVAC Division will continue to develop the world’s best HVAC for contributing to concerserve the environment as well as creating better living conditions for everyone.”

Epson urges businesses to ‘Go Big’ on the details

Leading the shift towards more efficient and sustainable printing processes, Epson, a frontrunner in digital imaging and printing solutions, urges businesses to be bold and to go all out on details with ‘Go Big’, Epson’s newest campaign dedicated for its wide range of commercial & industrial (C&I) printing and labeling solutions.   

With an expected growth in the C&I print and label market due to the consumers’ preferential shift towards customization and personalization of products, businesses are gearing towards solutions that can deliver versatile, high quality output with less time and less impact on the environment.
One of the fastest-growing sectors embracing this market shift is the sports apparel manufacturing industry, which is continuously gaining more customers due to the increasing demand for customized sports apparel and uniforms year-on-year. 
Digital textile printing allows manufacturers to print even the most complex designs and easily personalize uniforms with the name and number of each player with speed and efficiency.
GIG Sportswear, a clothing manufacturer in the Philippines who has been in the business for almost 3 years, employs Epson’s SureColor SC-F6270 for dye sublimation printing and plans to expand their business further to address the growing demand for personalized clothing in the sports scene.
 “Aside from affordability, our clients will always look for quality,” said Nemar Castillo, owner of Gig Sportswear. “The SureColor F-Series’ new HD black ink ensures that our designs are brought to life with pristine colors, and we also found that Epson’s textile printers are ideal for our short to medium-volume dye sublimation fabric printing at affordable costs.”
In addition to supporting businesses through high performance and high-quality outputs, Epson’s C&I product range helps companies cut overall business running costs while reducing carbon footprint and ensuring safe printing solutions. Utilizing digital textile printers, like Epson’s SureColor F-Series, can help reduce water consumption by 60% and chemical usage and power consumption by 55% compared to traditional analogue printing[1]. With an Eco Passport Certification, Epson’s textile inks also meet international safety standards for chemical substances used in textile production[2].
To help more partners in the C&I sector achieve business transformation through efficiency and sustainability, Epson rolls out its ‘Go Big’ campaign which urges customers to go all out on fashion, industrial plans, signage, product branding, photography and more through Epson’s efficient, compact and precision textile, technical, signage, label and photo printers.
Moving partners to get into the spirit of ‘Go Big’, Epson Philippines gathered its C&I partners for the first installation of the Exceed Community Basketball League, held last October 26 at the Ynares Gym in Mandaluyong. 
Epson employees and its C&I partners joined forces to form the tournament’s twelve main teams and went all out on colors and design with their customized basketball uniforms printed using Epson’s digital textile printers.
“In addition to quality output and affordability, the future of digital printing lies in sustainability, and Epson is fully committed to developing green technology and products to meet the Sustainable Development Goals set out by the United Nations,” Eduardo Bonoan, Epson Philippines’ General Manager for Marketing Division, said. “The Exceed Community Basketball League is a partner-driven initiative that marks the start of ‘Go Big’ in the Philippines, and our customers can expect to see more of this campaign on a storefront level in the coming months.
