Being a window air conditioner
LG LW8016ER is fairly simple to install compared to a split type air conditioner. Compressor is there within the unit only. So you don’t need to assemble the indoor unit or fan unit with the outdoor unit or condenser. Yes there are some vibrations and noise because of condenser being built within the blower unit only. But these are also well within the limit only for a window air conditioner. Being a window air conditioner it is also much more reliable and efficient than a portable unit. Cost is also pocket friendly which makes it a very good option.
- Easy to install
- Good pricing
- Low on power consumption
- Silent for a window unit
- Environment friendly R32 refrigerant used
- LG reliability
- Average build quality
- No heating
LG LW8016ER is cheap to buy and low on power consumption. So we can easily make out that it’s an efficient and pocket friendly machine. It cools well and fairly quieter from window air conditioner standards. It uses environment friendly R32 coolant. LG is a reliable brand. Unlike an central air conditioning system if there is a problem in this machine it won’t affect the entire house but only the room this particular air conditioner is catering to. Agreed build quality is little flimsy but it is still very much acceptable at this price point. Last but not least is it’s fairly easy installation. So if you have a window to instal it this is one of the better bet. Absolutely recommended product.
