WASHINGTON, April 14, 2021 ― The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has honored French Door refrigerators from LG Electronics with the 2021 ENERGY STAR® Emerging Technology Award. 

The award-winning three- and four-door models (LFXS26596 and LRMVS3006 respectively) feature advanced adaptive compressors “recognized as promising technology that has the potential to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions,” according to the EPA. Contributing to their eco-friendly design, the refrigerators use HFC-free R600a refrigerant.

Complementing their energy efficiency, both models offer InstaView – a one-of-a-kind innovation that allows users to knock twice to illuminate the refrigerator door’s glass panel to see inside – paired with LG Door-in-Door technology, which provides easy access to users’ favorite drinks and snacks while minimizing cold air loss to help save energy and keep food fresh. 

Both ENERGY STAR certified refrigerators also support LG’s artificial intelligence-powered customer service platform, LG Proactive Customer Care. The industry-first personalized customer support tool provides customized maintenance tips and monthly usage reports that help users keep appliances working their best; and alerts that flag potential issues before they arise – at no additional cost.
