ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., June 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- LG washers now lead the industry with 10 new models awarded the coveted "ENERGY STAR® Most Efficient 2017" distinction (for clothes washers larger than 2.5 cubic feet) from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Including among the list are two LG large-capacity models, which stand alone as the only top-load models to achieve this recognition, along with eight super-efficient front-load models.
LG dryer technology also is second-to-none in earning the Most Efficient 2017 designation, which according to the EPA, "recognizes products that deliver cutting-edge energy efficiency along with the latest technological innovation."
"Central to LG's mission of 'Innovation for a Better Life' is creating products that have a positive impact on people's lives and the environment," said John Taylor, senior vice president at LG Electronics USA. "We're committed to consistently finding ways to marry innovation with energy efficiency and to delivering products that have a positive impact on both U.S. consumers' wallets and the environment."
Further spotlighting its commitment to energy efficiency in the home laundry category, LG is a leading participant in EPA ENERGY STAR's summertime Laundry Made Better promotion. Breaking through the clutter with fresh research that shows that the majority of American men do laundry, the promotion kicked off on Father's Day and continues through July leveraging popular influencer online media channels targeting parents. LG is supporting the promotion by working with Mother.ly.com and Fatherly.com on contests that feature innovative LG TWINWash™ ENERGY STAR certified front-load washers (and companion LG SideKick mini pedestal washers) and ENERGY STAR certified LG clothes dryers.
In addition to energy efficiency, LG Electronics USA was named most reliable in all of its key laundry product categories, according to a leading U.S. consumer products publication. Among top major appliance brands, LG achieved the highest reliability rankings in front-load washing machines and high-efficiency top-load washing machines, as well as in both electric and gas dryers.*
