The efficiency of innovative LG solutions

The innovative high efficiency LG solutions installed inside LG Smart Cottage include the laundry column LG WashTower Compact, the QuadWash dishwasher, built-in kitchen appliances, a water purifier and the THERMA V Monobloc air-to-water heat pump (AWHP). In addition to ensuring year-round indoor climate comfort and consuming less energy than a conventional heating and cooling system, LG’s energy-saving heat pump can provide a reliable source of domestic hot water thanks to the connection with the integrated tank (IWT) with a capacity of 200 litres.

The exterior of the Cottage

Outside, the Smart Cottage is equipped with sustainability-conscious LG technologies, capable of meeting the daily energy needs of two guests. Roof-mounted 4-kilowatt (kW) solar panels are connected to LG’s Energy Storage System (ESS) to ensure collection and storage of solar energy on site safely and reliably, generating up to 15 kilowatts of electricity per day.

Excess energy can be stored in the ESS for later use or sold to the contracted electricity supplier. Additionally, LG’s modular home comes with a built-in EV charger, so homeowners won’t have to worry about fitting one in to power their EV.

L’app LG ThinQ

For a practical and intelligent user experience, all appliances in this home connect seamlessly with l’app LG ThinQ. Through the app, users can easily control each device, manage the entire HVAC system, and monitor energy accumulation and consumption in real time. Also, LG ThinQ connects to accessories with Internet of Things (IoT) which enhance the security of the Smart Cottage, including cameras, motion sensors and smart doorbells, contributing to the safety and peace of mind of guests.
