The Carrier Corporation has dominated the conventional system air conditioning market for a century since Willis Carrier invented his air conditioner in 1902. Recently in Central and South America, however, LG has emerged as a new, trusted partner for the region's air conditioning needs. LG's success certainly hasn't happened overnight; rather, it's the culmination of a decade of making headway in the region with a succession of energy efficient, eco-friendly solutions. Of late, LG's variable refrigerant flow (VRF) technologies have drawn considerable attention. It is little surprise then that when construction began on Chile's (then) tallest skyscraper in 2010, the Titanium La Portada in Santiago, LG's air conditioners were chosen for the job. Likewise, LG was also brought in to design and build a water-cooled heating and cooling system for Santiago's Santa Rosa project. The USD 7 million contract called for snowmelt from the Andes to be used in an innovative new system. LG is … [Read more...] about LG’s system air conditioning solutions see significant growth in Central and South American markets.

He said despite a 3-5 percent increase in prices, customers whose homes heat up like an oven in summer are buying aircons and fans heavily. The Saigon-Nguyen Kim Shopping Center said sales of cooling appliances in early April increased 150 percent over the same period last year.

Without electricity, society as we know it would cease to exist. It’s very hard to overestimate just how important electricity is to nearly every aspect of modern life, from keeping the lights on in a child’s bedroom to powering massive manufacturing facilities. For countries, then, securing adequate supplies of electricity is a paramount task. Reliable, abundant electricity enables a higher quality of life for citizens. It is also a prerequisite for creating economic growth. There is a problem, of course. Electricity supplies are limited. Past and current efforts to increase supply and meet the demands of greater energy consumption have had a significant, negative impact on the environment. Our drive for energy is accelerating climate change and exacerbating environmental problems such as acid rain. Moreover, this problem is not confined within borders. It is a global issue that requires innovative responses from global leaders. The term ‘global leaders’ … [Read more...] about New generation of air conditioners changing the world
