LG Split Air Conditioner (AC) Review

With a strong dominance of split air conditioner over window air conditioner, people have become more inclined to buy split AC’s rather than window AC because of many reasons. Some may don’t have dedicated window for installing window AC or some may not want to make a big cut in their wall for installing it. However, in case of Split AC’s, it just requires a small hole in wall, which hides behind air conditioning unit and AC looks better on wall. This is pretty obvious that split ac’s are better in looks than window ac’s. However at same time, installation of them can be clumsy for case to case. So, before buying, one must check what are his/her actual needs and which would be better for them.

LG Split Air Conditioner (AC) Cooling Effectiveness

LG in-house technology named “INVERTER V” is what behind the successful life of lg split ac’s. This technology is available in LG window ac’s as well. This technology comes handy when effective cooling is required as well as power efficient too. The major benefit of “INVERTER V” technology is when we start the air conditioner, the compressor will start at maximum speed to reach the desired temperature quickly. Once the room attains the desired temperature, LG INVERTER will adjust and constantly vary the compressor speed to maintain the desired room temperature with minimum power consumption. This is the major benefit of having a variable speed compressor rather than a constant speed compressor that it consumes less speed and hence lower power usage bills. And hence cooling is very powerful.

The air outlet is designed for strong airflow which brings down the room temperature upto 7 deg within a minute. Its 4-way swing disperses cool air quickly and effectively in multiple directions to reach every corner of room. However you can adjust horizontal vane from step 1 to 6 with full auto swing or you can adjust vertical vane too from step 1 to 5, left and right with full auto swing to cool specific area of a room. The 4-way swing provides optimized flow regardless of your location in your room like any other AC. You can feel the airflow upto a distance of 30ft when adjusted properly.

LG Window Air Conditioner (AC) Build Quality

We buy big brands products because we expect them to give us great quality products. And if they don’t deliver good quality products, then there name came on stake. The competition is market is so high that if a brand don’t meet the required standards, they can loose market share so fast, that could give them a loss in millions. That’s why LG doesn’t compromise when it comes to quality of its split AC’s products. There products have quality which had improved with time a lot when it comes to compressor or outer looks or body. Hence, product build quality is good and the parts fitted inside also have a good life span because that’s also matter very much. Again if you heard some critics about it, then critics can be for any company, think yourself, if you got 100 customers, you’ll never find all 100 satisfied with your service or products.

LG Split Air Conditioner (AC) Looks

LG got a huge range to offer in split AC’s. They have tried to offer a varied range for everyone’s budget. And if we talk about looks, those are quite good. There are some models whose outer body is fully colored to match your interior looks for those who don’t like plain white looks. Those full colored AC’s looks very luxurious and can make your neighbor’s envy. However everyone has got its own opinions about its looks, if you check Mitsubishi or Hitachi looks, they also do have got some nice difference in looks but at same time they have got a huge price gap too. So, its like this, if you have got a thick pocket, go to looks with premium brands or you want to have a cost efficient thing with good looks, go for LG.

LG Split Air Conditioner (AC) Power Consumption

LG Split AC Bee Star Rating Model Year 2012

A state of art heat exchanger, an efficient air outlet, and INVERTER V technology are the major unique features behind high efficiency of LG’s split ac’s conditioners. This INVERTER V technology operates the air conditioner with variable speed of compressor which helps savings energy a lot. The Brushless DC motor is one of the major factor for reducing power consumption. This motor has strong torque and powerful Neodymium magnets inside the rotor, which helps BLDC motor to provide large air volumes and high static pressure. And 13 different step precise speed control makes the operation more smoother. For Electrical and Mechanical both, noise is lower and high speed operation is available as well.

Savings With LG Split AC

If you going to buy split AC’s soon, check for BEE star ratings. The higher the star ratings, more power efficient AC would be. And recently LG made huge improvement in there compressor and many things, so while buying split AC, check in BEE star rating label that the model year is 2012 only. If you find an AC with older model date, i would suggest not buying it because the recent product updated features and parts are more power efficient. You will find power consumption range more efficient on 2012 models. LG was awarded First Prize in Manufacturer’s of BEE Star labeled appliances (Air Conditioner) Sector during National Energy Conversation Awards 2010. This award is currently instituted and given by Ministry of Power, Government of India.

LG Split Air Conditioner (AC) Durability

When we talk about durability, we expect our AC’s to work at extreme temperatures and perform equal at all outer temperature range. If they don’t perform at peak temperatures during summers, the AC becomes a box of plastic for us. And LG split AC’s have performed well on all the reviews we aggregated about it. For having durability, it has a MF condenser instead of traditional fin and tube condenser. Heat capacity is 10-20% higher in MF condenser when compared fin and tube. Also this condenser is made up of Aluminium to prevent Galvanic Corrosion. When compared to fin and tube condenser, it consumer less power and delivers better performance.

LG Split Air Conditioner (AC) Features

  • Ionizer

Ionizer sterilize not only the air going through the air conditioner but also all surrounding harmful substances and odor too. The ion clusters created by ionizer plasma pattern electrodes form radicals over the surface of harmful bacteria to eliminate odor and hydrogen particles of the bacteria.

  • Highly Silent

It inbuilt unique skew fan and low vibrating compressor produces less sound and helps you having a sound sleep. The unique thing about skew fan is its design has minimum surface pressure on the fan blade which when comes in contact with the air, the peak noise is reduced to a very lower level of 19dB.

  • Auto Cleaning

Inbuilt Auto Cleaning function prevents the forming of bacterial and mold on the heat exchanger and hence more cleaner air for a long time. The automatic cleaning function dries wet heat exchanger and ions from Ionizer which sterilizes the coil to prevent the breeding of molds and bacteria. It eliminates odor from air conditioners and saves from discomfort of having frequent cleaning of filter.

  • Plasma Cyclotron Filter

Its plasma filtration system protects the user from odor and harmful substances floating in air. It also deactivates virus that pose risks to health and hence more cleaner air. The filter removes house mites, micro dust and put fur to those in order to save user from allergy/asthma symptoms.

  • E-Saver Mode

Using BATA algorithm (Body Adaptation Time Algorithm) is a new technology being offered by LG in it’s split range air conditioners. What it actually does that it helps consuming less power upon reaching a room temperature when our body stop sensing temperature change. It’s a quite useful feature and merge well with InverterV technology.

  • 3M Mirco Protection Filter

LG is the only company which offers protection from dust and harmful bacteria by it’s unique 3M Micro protection filter and fine mesh dual protection filter. These filters are capable of removing dust and bacteria up to size of 0.3 um for providing fresh and pure air to users. Again, this also helps in maintaining performance on cooling and reduced electricity bills for a longer period of time.

LG Split Air Conditioner (AC) After Sales Service

From all the reviews we aggregated, we found LG After sales service satisfactory. Customer care support is good and supportive and understand problems well when explained properly. Just in case, if you found some glitches in customer care support, contact them directly on there Facebook page to get an early response. This is the major benefit of purchasing products of big brands, now-a-days you can get them easily using social networking websites.

Update: Now LG offers a 211 service which means once you register your complaint, LG service engineer will call you back in 2 hours (hence 2), set up an appointment for the next convenient day for you (hence the first 1), and show up in the promised 1-hour slot (hence the second 1). If the next convenient day for you is the next day, that’s great too.

  2. Which is better MF Condensor or copper Condensor

    HI,
    Im planning to buy Split AC. Most of people says Copper Condenser is good but MF condenser is available in LG and Samsung and that is the New technology.
    Please suggest.

    • MF vrs Copper

      MF technology is just a gimmick. its afterall an aluminium condenser. Within 3 yrs you have to change it similar MF type or Copper type. Cost would be 8000/- INR. Those 2 brands are looters and gimmick kings.
      And most imp, exchange ur old AC by 5 yrs or else it will ask repairings and parts would not be available. It will be a junk.

      Secondly, Better go for Diakin or Voltas or Carrier or Bluestar.

  3. Area coverage

    I have a conference room of 350 Sq. Ft. with 20-30 people sitting. How much tonnage should I install.

  4. one of the vendor here at my side told me to go for copper coils over aluminum coil, since copper coils are more strong compared to aluminum, also it has better conductivity over aluminum. Also he told me that blue star is one of the few (among Daikin, Mitsubishi) to provide coils with copper material until asked for aluminum ones(something to do about maintaining quality ). While other companies like samsung, LG, videocon tend to use aluminum because of its cheapness. Also these companies tend to coat their aluminum coils with copper paint just to give a vision as of copper.

    He told me that heavier the ac, the more better it is. Also he showed me inside the outdoor chamber, i.e. the coils and compressor. Compressor as well as coils were of copper , the coils were also coated blue in color which he told us is a patented technology to prevent them from corrosion/rust.

    All in all he told us to go for: (all 3 star)
    1) Bluestar (V series) 1.5 ton @ 32990 (including everything +800 for installation)
    2) Mitsubishi 1.5 ton @36990 (Highly recommended over bluestar if the budget allows) (extra charges for ducting and installation +3to4k)
    3) Daikin 1.5 ton @ 32990 (extra charges for ducting and installation +3to4k)

    So could u please correct if anything is wrong over here. and recommend if there is any other better option available. I need to use the split ac in my drawing room area.

    PS: PLEASE REPLY BEFORE 31st MARCH’13 just to avoid raised prices due to new budget.

    Thanx

  5. Availability in Kolkata

    What is the availability of BS-Q186C7M1 or 8R2 or 4A1 in Calcutta ? Which retailer is stocking them ? What are the cash down prices and what is the cost of installation as these sets most probably do not have company installation kits with them.

  6. which AC

    Want to buy a split AC which brand, WHAT tonnage, how many stars sufficient, BEE star rating?, mine is transferable job so room size varies everywhere (presently 12X10) next may be 10X10 OR 12X12. Want to order online. Should consume least power , least noise, best after sales service etc. PLEASE HELP…………..

  7. Is it good enough for the room size ? ?

    Hello sir, i am buying an a/c for the first time and have chosen to go with the LG L-Nova LSA5NR5F air conditioner for my room which has a size of 12×18 foot. My question is that is this a/c sufficient for my room size. I wont be using the a/c for more than 5 hours a day, shall this be a good buy for me. if not kindly suggest me a good one. Awaiting your response . .

  8. I want to know what is the difference in 2star & 5star split ac
    what is the difference in electricity bill?

    also INVERTER V SERIES AIR CONDITIONERS 1ton ac what is the electrical bill

  9. LG OR HITACHI AC....

    I heard of LG AC got gas leakage problem quite a often. Is MF technology from LG really changed the scenario or the problem still there with these aluminum condenser and coil.

    Finally should i buy hitachi AC,(all copper coil inside and outside including condenser)or go for new LG AC(Multi flow aluminum coil.

    Please advise…

    • MF Aluminium Coil is just having a coating which will not stand long in Our Indian Hard weather conditions. In 2-3 yrs you would see Gas leaking issues and untimely replace the MF condenser unit coating 8000/-.
      And if you keep ur Unit clean, then at max 3 Years you can enjoy.

  10. Is it not that the ‘aluminium alloy’ condenser harder to fix for gas leakage issues as opposed to copper consersor, which being malleable in nature easy to work on? Thanks.

  15. Recommendation for buying a Split AC..?

    Hello!!

    I want to buy a split AC. My room size is about 110 sq. ft. and above this room, there is another room, i.e., on its upper floor. Can you please recommend any AC to me?

    And, I am looking for a 5-star energy rating on AC. Location is in Maharashtra (not Mumbai).

    This is new year 2014, and, since the posts here appear to be from the last year, recommendations may be different. Can you recommend one or different models?

    Thanks.

  16. Thank you! :)

    Hi! Thank you for your advice and recommendation… and for also sharing a trick, which can be use for me…!! :)

    And, thank you for clearing my doubts about the AC features and answering the questions…!! :) :)

    I have sent the email. :)

    • Thanks... contd...

      Actually, I want to say- ‘Thanks A Lot’- as many of my queries were answered, and, mainly, I also got a recommendation of an AC model! :D :)

  17. Trane AC? or Voltas or LG? I am baffled! Help!

    Hi,
    Recently Trane executives called me up offering me a great deal of discount (atleast that’s what they made it sound like!). They were offering me their top end inverted ac range for 50-55K. Just wanted to know whether you have any clue about them?

    Also, voltas 5 star ACs have an offer going on them, how are they any idea? Power consumption seems measly for 1520w for an output of 5300w. However I am more or less clueless about Voltas!

    Finally, my favourite brand, LG has raked up some serious competition, by introducing LG inverter V range. I knwo it’s good

    Here’s my dilemma.

    I need two ACs, one split and another window or both window.

    The first room is around 18 feet long and 10 feet wide, located on ground floor.
    Second room is about 12 by 12, situated on second floor.

    I live in Delhi and seeing the blistering summer oncoming, I am dead scared and want to prepare before they strike the life out of me.

    My budget is around whatever EMI may make it look good! around 60-70K!

    What do you suggest?

    Also sharp’s inverter range of AC has been generating rave reviews, any idea about that as well? I am more inclined towards LG because of their extended warranty in case of any bust-out. they are there to help you, unlike Sam-dung.

  18. Copper condenser v/s Aluminium condenser

    It is very very clear that aluminium condensers have problem of leakage world over. GE was the first company to use it in 1981 and now stopped using it. I also have 2 acs. One is carrier (with copper coil) and the other one is Samsung (with aluminium condenser). Carrier is working absolutely fine for last 6 years with no problem and Samsung started giving problem in just 1.5 years of purchase. All the companies in India should be banned from using aluminium condenser. And if they are using it, they should give 5 years warranty as they are giving for compressor.

  19. which model ac i buy?

    My budget price 17000 to 23000. which model and which company split ac is more comfortable to me with all features

  20. Hi! Queries about 'Blue Star''s ACs...

    Hi, again!! :)

    I was checking the LG Inverter V ACs some time before now, and found that the prices have gone up and some new models added too. Thought that I should have bought them earlier… :)

    Then, I saw ‘Blue Star’ AC’s advertisement on TV and then checked out the website for Split ACs. Then, I went to Blue Star’s Inverter AC range. While reading, I got a couple of questions in mind… They are given below.

    1. Their Inverter ACs do not have the auto-clean feature as far as I checked out… In the AC features, they say that, there is a ‘Cleanable Panel’ on the ACs, but do not say auto-clean. So, will I have to clean its AC more frequently if I buy it…?

    2. In the brochure of all the Blue Star ACs that can be downloaded from this page:
    http://bluestarindia.com/products/room-acs/default.asp (click on ‘Brochure’)

    when I came to the Inverter ACs section in that file, it is written that, their Inverter ACs use the ‘R410A’ refrigerant, which they say is the latest refrigerant which is environment-friendly that has almost nil ozone depleting substances… . So, it came in my mind that what about the refrigerant used in other companies’ ACs..?? Can you tell whether it is environment-friendly or not, or, the ‘R410A’ is good than other refrigerants used…?

    Also, I was wondering that whether the Blue Star ACs have copper tubes (they say they have Bluefin tubes..)…

    And, apart from this, what can you tell about these Inverter or other Blue Star ACs, like a review… good or not so good..?

    Thanks. And, thanks for this website where you give advice and suggestions to people about which AC to buy and other things…! :)

  21. Blue Star or LG- Multiflow vs Copper condenser

    Hi,

    Reading your previous posts it seems there is lot of confusion about MF condenser vs copper condenser. I am facing a similar issue for buying an AC. The sales executive confused me by saying the same thing that aluminium one is not good and its better to go for copper one and that LG has aluminium condenser and Blue Star has copper one. I am considering following options ( 1 Ton and 2 star) :

    1. Blue star – 2HW12NB
    2. LG- LSA3AP2M
    3. LG- LSA3NP2F

    Plz suggest which one is better and also suggest about after sale services. For the condenser, sorry for asking the same thing again but I would like to know whether the aluminium one and MF are same or different. Also I would like to know if all LG Ac’s have MF condenser as I am not sure whether the 3rd one has MF condenser or not.

    Thanks in advance.

  22. Model no. LSA5NP3F

    What do you have to say about this model? Does this model also have aluminium alloy tubing inside? When was this model launched? U said we should not buy any model that was launched before 2012. How about this AC? Please tell me all the pros and cons about this AC? My requirement is of a 1.5 ton AC and I am getting a discount on this model. Please revert urgently.

  23. which is best?

    I want to buy 1.5 ton ac fr my room. Which company I should go fr. ( oGeneral or hitachi)
    Plz reply faster.

  24. Ultrasonic mosquito repellent tech is a gimmick

    Ankit Chugh: “But they are very helpful and keep away domestic pests such as mosquitoes etc. The Ultrasonic waves pound on the ears and brain of the pests like a hammer and keep them away and humans just remain unaffected.”

    This ultrasonic technology is a big gimmick. You see it in mosquito repellents and now its made its way to Air Conditioners, thanks to LG. Please research more on this. In the meantime, I strongly suggest fellow buyers to discount this mosquito repellent technology, it’s useless!

    I have some web articles (from 2013) for you to refer:

  25. Planning to buy Split AC

    Hi,

    I am living in Delhi with Family and the weather is really annoying here in summers. I want to buy a split AC for my bedroom (approx 10 X 12) and my budget is something between 25000 to 33000. And only basic requirements needed in AC, but after sale service and compressor life should be good. Also power consumption should be least and it should have atleast 3 Star raating.

    Please suggest me best option in this range with mentioned requirement.
    Thanks in advance

  26. "Most Pathetic after sales service"

    I want to give my feedback. Never purchase any LG product. My AC stopped working in just 2 years. Expense of 6,000/- is estimated for repairing and i have sent for repair and have not received it back from last 6 days. the exact problem was know to them before 10 days. Just one part is to be replaced Still there is no proper response from call center and the AC is not repaired. In all LG is the most pathetic company in after sales service and I believe it wont survive for long if such kind of pathetic service is delivered.

    I have a room of 14’/14″. I live in Bangalore. My apartment is on the second floor of the three floor apartment building. The room is on the north-east side of the apartment. Have two windows and has wardrobes in it.

    I was planning to go for LG AS-W126B1U1 model (1 T). Is it a good choice and is 1T capacity enough for the room? I do plan to use it almost on a daily basis for about 5-6 hours.

    When i went to inquire in one of the showrooms, I was told Samsung AR12J5HBWKN or Samsung AR12JV5HATQ are better choices than the model that i had chosen. Neither could i find the specifications for these models online nor the showroom people have the brochure for these models. They said it was because these are 2015 models and the brochure is not released/published yet. They were kinda putting pressure on me to buy one of these. Now I am confused. Please help me decide.

    Are the Samsung models better than the LG model that I had shortlisted? Are there any better LG models which might be a better fit?

    Please help me URGENTLY…

    Regards,
    Divya

  31. AR12JV5HATQ is good !

    Hi Divya,

    I have installed two AR12JV5HATQ split a/cs for my two bedrooms last week and they have very good cooling capabilities.My room size is 16*14 and cooling is very good..The trick that i did use is that i placed the a/c right above my bed and its cooling seems very effective in this position. And BTW its true that i also could not see an exact display piece since this is a 2015 model. I was shown a 1.5 tonne a/c (don’t remember the model name) which looked very similar to this one with the floral design. I have been using samsung split a/c’s for the last six years in my office without any issues..

  37. Planning to buy LG 1.5 Ton 3 Star LSA5PW3M/3A Split Air

    Hi Ankit,

    I have a room of around 150sq ft. So, planning to put a 1.5 Ton AC there.
    And i summer, the temperature will easily cross 43-44

    Have sort listed LG 1.5 Ton 3 Star LSA5PW3M/3A for this
    On some local inquiry, found that LG is using aluminium instead of copper. And these aluminium things
    are resulting in issues later.
    Is that true ?

    Should i go with that model or would you refer something else ?

  39. Need your guidance to purchase LG models- Urgent

    Hi Ankit

    We have decided to go for 5 star and 1.5 ton AC… When we went to the show room they gave us 2 options

    1. LSA5VP5D – This was our option basically, but since the dealer gave us the second option we have kept the purchase on hold.

    2. LSA5EW5M – This is 4 way swing. The dealer said this is 4 way swing and the production for this model is stopped. Also he has only 2 pieces of this model he was letting us know this. Can you please guide us on which one to buy?

    The room size is 10X12. But we may shift from this place to another soon that is why we have opted for 1.5 ton AC.

  40. LG 1 TON split AC

    Hi Ankit
    Can you suggest some good and economical model of 1 TON LG split AC.
    The sales executive suggests the model LG 3NP3F. Is this model good?

    Thanks in advance for your time and consideration.

  41. Other than mosquito away feature, any other difference is there between LG LSA3NP3A and LSA3AT3D? What is your opinion about model LSA3NP3A?

  42. Need Help on purchase.

    Please help me review this AC model from LG :- LSA3MP3S ( I live in Hyd,Temp can go upto 45 C, 1 tonnes , 3 star , Avg Consumption majorly on Weekends, weekly night time , live on 4th floor)

  43. R22 vs R32

    so i had decided to buy LG LSA5NP5A after doing extensive research and also a great help came from reading your article so thanks for that Ankit.. however i just came to know that R22 gas will be completely phased out/banned form this year and will only be available till 2020 for servicing old ACs. now i am in the dilemma as only Daikin manufactures ACs with R32 gas. since R22 is banned i am guessing all the other manufacturers will have to follow suit. So with all the current developments what would you recommend, LG LSA5NP5A or Daikin FTC50? your reply would be greatly appreciated

  44. Lg or Samsung

    Need help in deciding which brand/model to buy. We have seen few like Samsung AR18JC3JAMV 1.5 Ton 3 Star Split AC,LG LSA5PW3M 1.5 Ton 3 Star Split AC, LG LSA3VF3D 1 Ton 3 Star Split AC, whirlpool magic cool series, few panasonic models as well. Few local retailers in shops suggest to go for samsung or lg or whirlpool.

We want to buy a good one which has life. Please post your suggestions!!

  50. LG AC AVOID AVOID AVOID

    I brought LG AC in 2013 paying Rs 35000. I could hardly use it this summer(May 2015).
    3 months back the cooling stopped and the service engineer said there is gas leakage in the outer unit. Charged me Rs2300.
    In two months ,again cooling stopped. This time he says that there is coil problem in the inner unit and it needs to be replaceds. He say it will cost around Rs4000

    Also,they are highly unprofessional. They will close the Service tickets without informing you and you end of following up with them as they are all outsourced.
    The call center will pass the buck to the Service agency and Vice versa.

    Totally frustrated!!!!!!!!!!

  53. LG 1.5 Ton Inverter AC

    Hello, I’m planning to buy a 1.5 Ton Inverter AC. In my locality, the price difference of a LG 1.5 Ton Inverter AC to a LG 1.5 Ton Non-Inverter AC is almost Rs. 13K. The Inverter models they have is USUQ186C4ACL and BSQ186CAX2. For Non-Inverter Models they give 2 years warranty on compressor and for Inverter models, the warranty on compressor is 5 years. I have two queries –
    1. Is the 13K more on Inverter model worth the money?
    2. Since in an Inverter model AC the compressor is always running (high to low), doesn’t it lessen the life span of the compressor compared to Non-Inverter models where the compressor is either on or off?

  54. LG BSA181MA OR BSA181BE ???

  55. Stabilizer

    I bought BSA12IMA 1.0 ton and want to know what Stabilizer should i use….. will V-Guard VG 400 Voltage Stabilizer be good or i 500v.

  59. Daikin Inverter or LG Inverter AC's

    Hi

    I read your Articles and loved your post review comments. With that in mind, please help me in choosing the better AC from Daikin of LG Inverter series as per latest Technology available in Market. I am very confused on what to choose from.

    I heard a lot of R-32 as a coolant for Diakin as the next big thing, with many features being silent and less power consumer, and also read through you article on LG about its after sales service and performance. I live in Gurgaon, so as i have think of everything before buying an AC.

    Would really appreciate if you would let me which company and model to prefer too.

    I bought LG BSA18IBE Inverter V Split AC on the recommendation of one of my close friend.

    I am thinking about lg aura terminator 1.5 t with 5 star rating with 42k price including installation and stabiliser.plz comment

  65. CONFUSED WITH THE AC BRANDS LG/SAMSUNG...

    I have planned to buy an 1.5Ton, 3-Star rated, Copper coil condensor AC for my 120sqft top-storey room in Salem Tamilnadu which faces 106 degree Fahrenheit in summer. My budget is 30-35K. My AC should function atleast 5 years without any gas leaking, circuit board, outdoor unit corrosion issues, etc (If at all I am lucky) … Confused with brands LG/SAMSUNG to buy. I am not worried about new models but the only thing is that it should fit within my budget.

    Please reply me ASAP with the brand and Model number suggesting me atleast models.

    From your previous comments, I understood that LG is worth to buy than any other brands. I even agree you in this. But the only thing which is keeping me in oscillation whether to choose LG/Samsung is the warranty of condensor unit offered by lg & samsung.

    When I enquired in both LG & SAMSUNG showrooms, they both said that they use copper coil condensor in the Outdoor unit, but LG gives only one year warranty for the condensor whereas the Samsung dealer told me that they give 5 years warranty(for the new 2016 model. I m not sure about the model number) for copper coil condensor. My doubt is that who among LG & SAMSUNG really use copper coil or they just use copper coated coil or the aluminium-copper alloy in condensor unit and do marketing as copper coil?

    Price informed to me by the sales person along with installation for 1.5Ton, 3Star, Copper coil condensor AC as on 24.5.16 is:
    LG showroom : 35K,
    Samsung showroom : 34K

    Waiting for your comment to buy my first AC :) ……..

    I couldn’t understand why you haven’t replied for negative comments about LG by Kiran kumar on May 22,2015 and Sinto Thomas on MAy 25,2015.

    Thanks in Advance,
    Karthik.

    • REPLY FOR THE ANSWERED QUERY

      Hi Ankit,
      I got the below reply from LG enquiry via mail.
      MODEL – MAKE – WARRANTY
      LSA5AU3A – Copper – 1yr
      LSA5NP3A1 – MF – 5yrs
      LSA5PW3A – MF – 5yrs
      LSA5NP5A – MF – 5yrs
      LSA3AT5D – MF – 5yrs

      So, for the model LSA5AU3A with Copper coil condenser, LG gives 1 year warranty. But for the other models with Multi-Flow (MF) condenser, LG gives 5yrs warranty.
      1. I guess MF condensers are made out of Aluminium-Copper Alloy right?
      2. Also its clearly understood from their warranty details that MF type condensers are more durable than Copper coil. If not, why they should give only one year for copper and 5yrs for MF??
      3. So, buying MF condenser model is the best option???
      Pls answer my 3 queries in this post…

  66. Pathetic service of LG

    Highly unprofessional company to buy products from. I have 3 AC, a refrigerator and a washing machine from LG which I unfortunately purchased around same time. The service response has been very pathetic. They don’t respond to calls and have a very lackadaisical attitude towards their Customers and their concerns. This is opposite of what is claimed above in article about 24hr response; it’s more than 17 days from logging a complaint and numerous follow up!!!! Avoid LG products if you can

  75. on't buy lg air conditioner and worst installation

    please please don’t buy lg air conditioner. i bought two year back. 5 time getting repaired and they charged extra 10000 rupees above. worst installation…… i will show all bills….

  76. confused on which is the best model?

    Hello ankit sir my name is vishal.
    Am planning to buy an air conditioner and with lots of online research I opted for an LG dual inverter (BSA18MAYD)1.5 ton 4 star ac with features like mosquito away,himalaya cool,jetcool,chaos logic.
    The things I want your valuable suggestions on are
    1-does mosquito away feature really works.
    2-these ac has an aluminium condenser so is it inferior to copper one’s in long run.(thou the company offers 10 yrs warranty on compressor)
    3-it doesn’t have virus,catechin,bacteria filters but has plasmaster ioniser, does that performs all above functions of clearing harmful microorganism.
    4-it only has 2-way swing (up n down) rather than 4, Will that affect an proper air distribution.
    5- does this ac have self diagnosis or self cleaning feature.
    The only thing that is setting me back from buying these unit is that I have an previous LG spilt non inverter ac and the problem with it is that the indoor unit leaks a lot n the technician isn’t able to resolve the problem.(I even came across few similar water leaking reviews about LG ac’s)is that the case with LG ac’s?
    Please suggest me over these sir.

  77. Hi,
    I am staying near Nala, I want to buy split ac for my top floor, room size is 9*15. My budget is 30k to 45K. I don’t want to face gas leaking issue as normally happens for location near nala. I am considering invertor series.

  78. Recommend AC in Bangalore

    Dear Ankit, Great reviews on AC. I am layman but could able to understand so much about technology. Thanks.
    My room is 166 Sq feet. Looking for economical AC but good quality. I stay in Bangalore. Temperature goes around 40 degree in peak summer. Pls suggest.

  79. LG invertor Ac problem

    Hello, I’m from Pune maharastra, i buy LG invertor AC after 1 month cooling issue observed after several calls LG service engineer visited site and saying gas was leaked and needs to do refilling, but today after 15 days nobody visited site to attend this issues, i’ll not recommend to buy LG product to anyone, just go without LG product, service is too vast.

  80. Daikin is Leader

    LG is pioneer in advertising to fool peoples for its new innovation, I bought Daikin after so many research of benefits R32 refrigerant i am mechanical engineer also with specialization in Refrigeration Technology, I have research papers of R32 having many benefits still it is mildly flammable gas but not an issue, Daikin has sold millions of ACs with R32 not a single issue of Fire accident.

  81. Poor service

    Just to change a damaged cable of Rs 226,LG authorized service center “R K Electronics, 2/339, Shankaramangalam PO pattambi” invoiced 550rs as service charge, which is really unacceptable.

  82. POOR SERVICE

    I HAVE PURCHASED LG SPLIT A/C WHICH IS GIVING FREQUENT COOLING PROBLEMS FROM THE DATE OF PURCHASE . EVERY TIME WE CALL THE LG SERVICE PEOPLE AND ATTENDED THE PROBLEM. ON 8/12/2018 THE SERVICE PEOPLE TAKEN THE A/C UNIT TO THEIR SERVICE CENTRE . THEY CHARGED RS6669 FOR CHANGING THE CONDENSER COIL AND FILLING THE GAS . EXACTLY AFTER 3 MONTHS, THE A/C IS NOT GIVING COOLNESS.WHEN WE CALL THE LG PEOPLE AGAIN,THEY TOLD THAT THE GAS IS TO BE FILLED AND REPLACE THE CONDENSER COIL AND TOLD US THE CHARGES WILL BE AROUND RS7000.
    WE ARE VERY MUCH FED UP WITH THE SERVICE OF THE LG COMPANY AND DROP THE IDEA OF BUYING THE LG PRODUCTS IN THE FUTURE.
