LG Dual Inverter Window AC Review:
Using dual inverter technology, LG’s window ACs cool faster and very energy efficient.
They’re 25% more energy efficient than Energy Start minimum standards!
Even in extreme heat, expect to save 25-40% on your electric bill!
The new line of window ACs also include LG’s SmartThinQ Technology — they quickly connect w/ your home WiFi.
Once connected, you can control all settings via the mobile app.
- Turn on or off

Also connect it w/ Amazon Alexa or Google Home for voice commands!
LG LW2217IVSM Review:
This is the first line of LG window ACs to include dual inverter technology.
Inside are twin rotors and a specialized compressor which delivers fast cooling + reduced energy usage.
The dual inverter also cuts out extra noise, creating an ultra-quiet performance.
Buyers are surprised how quietly it runs compared to their older window unit — it’s perfect for bedrooms!
LG LW2217IVSM: 22,000 BTU
Room Size: 1100 – 1300 sq. ft.
This ultra-quiet air conditioner runs as low as 44 decibel level, so users find it is noticeably less loud and intrusive in their homes.
Unlike other AC units that cycle on/off abruptly, this LG model continually adjusts compressor speed to create a sustainable, cool environment.
Customized cooling options:
high, mid, low, energy saver, and sleep mode
Buyers also confirm that it’s easy to install (and doesn’t require special tools or skills).
Installation: 10-15 minutes
LG Window Air Conditioner Review:
The LG LW2217IVSM puts out 22,000 BTU of power – enough to efficiently cool very large rooms up to 1300 sq. ft.
Reading buyer reviews, many use it for businesses they run. It’s a much more affordable than installing a full HVAC system (especially if you’re leasing).
The LG LW2217IVSM offers useful features such as auto restart in case of power failure, and 24-hr timer.
FYI: lots of buyers like to set a timer in case they forget to turn-off in the morning
It’s suggested that you clean it for dust and dirt 2-3x per year.
Thanks to LG’s washable air filters, this is easier than ever — there’s also a filter notification light which reminds you if it needs to be cleaned.

LG LW2217IVSM Window Air Conditioner:
Dual inverter technology and built-in WiFi capabilities make the LG LW2217IVSM one of the most advanced on the market.
At 22,000 BTU, it’s able to cool large areas quickly + keep a steady, cool temperature without cycling on and off.
It runs quietly as promised, but expect the mid and high settings to be louder than 44 decibels.
A major perk is being able to control this AC unit remotely w/ the SmartThinQ Mobile App — or connect w/ Alexa or Google Home for voice commands.
In terms of cost, it’s fairly expensive — but with so many positive buyer reviews and latest technology, it’s worth considering.
If you have the budget, having the dual-inverter + mobile app control is a nice luxury in the summer time.
