LG Launches Anti-Mosquito Air Conditioner

As part of its commitment to improve both health security and the quality of life in Africa through technological innovations, LG Electronics has launched an advanced residential air conditioner (RAC) which utilizes ultrasonic wave technology to repel mosquitoes.

According to the company, the “Anti-Mosquito” air conditioner has been shown in tests conducted in a Peet Grady chamber to deter on average 64 percent of malaria-transmitting female Anopheles mosquitoes within 24 hours and 82 percent overall.

Aside from offering greater peace of mind, the Anti-Mosquito air conditioner also comes with all the advantages of LG’s AC technologies, delivering powerful cooling and superb reliability even under extreme operating temperatures.

“In Nigeria, as well as in a number of other African countries, malaria continues to be a prevalent threat. LG takes great pride in tailoring products and technologies to the specific needs of consumers. By matching technologies directly to these region-specific challenges, we can create real solutions that will help bring about profound and meaningful changes to consumers” said, Jun-hwa Jeong, General Manager of Air Conditioning and Energy Solutions at LG Electronics.

Mohammed Fouani, Managing Director of Fouani Nigeria Ltd also added that the launch of the product will further deepen its brand penetration. “In terms of economic development, the entire African continent has enormous potential and we’re hopeful that LG’s technologies will help people unlock that potential".


  1. A mosquito-repellent AC is indeed a great and useful invention most especially to those who are living in Africa. We all know how mosquito poses a challenge to the eradication of malaria in a lot of countries around the continent, as such, this new innovation will somewhat help the people there to prevent, or at the very least contain, the spread of malaria.

  2. Others may think that there’s nothing great about this anti-mosquito air conditioner but if you’re going to think how many people would benefit from it and how many lives can be saved from infectious diseases like malaria, you might be looking at this product in a different light.
