Dengue fever is a mosquito-borne tropical disease caused by the dengue virus. It can be acquired by anyone regardless of age, gender, or even social status. We all know the danger this virus can cause once we or one of our loved ones becomes a victim.
Because of this, Global technology innovator LG Electronics, launched the revolutionary Mosquito Away Residential Air Conditioner with technology that repels mosquitoes, including dengue-causing ones, allowing a healthy, comfortable and mosquito-free haven in homes, schools, and establishments. This is after they came up with air conditioners that fight air pollution and humidity.
Vice President for LG Philippines’ Air Conditioning and Energy Solutions group Steve Kim said, “Our new Mosquito Away residential air conditioners will help Filipino families protect themselves from the fatal dengue disease. It is once again our way of putting technology to good use.”
The Mosquito Away RAC utilizes a speaker generating ultrasonic wave that makes inaudible u-wave at a specific frequency of over 30kH that is completely harmless to humans. The ultrasonic wave technology is very convenient and probably the easiest away to keep mosquitoes away.
The anti-dengue air conditioner has been tested by Dr. Pio A. Javier, Research Professor of the Crop Protection Cluster of University of the Philippines, Los Baños. Test results showed that the LG RAC is capable of repelling indigenous mosquitoes, the dengue-causing Aedes aegypti, at a very high success rate of 82.71 percent.
Aside from its Mosquito Away feature, the new LG RAC boasts of a low voltage starter that allows the unit to operate at lower voltage in lower temperatures. Its jet cooling feature, meanwhile allows for quick cooling.
