LG MS-Q18YNZA Review

If you are looking for the latest 2021 air conditioner from best selling brand that also protects your family from all kinds of virus, bacterias and dust then this models will be an ideal choice for you. This new model is better than the previous models in terms of air filtration, cooling performance, noise level and power consumption.


First, Lets talk about the main part of any Air conditioner, which is its Compressor. This AC comes with a DUAL Inverter Compressor with Varied Speed Dual Rotary Motor. Dual Inverter Compressor is an advancement in Inverter compressor technology with several benefits over single rotary Inverter. This AC will have fast cooling speed and less electricity consumption than single rotary inverter AC. It produce less vibrations, so are more durable and require less maintenance. Another advantage is its lowered noise level!


This model comes with a powerful cooling capacity of 1.5 Tons, which makes it suitable for medium sized room or small office space, up to 150 square feet in normal scenarios. There are certain factors like, direction and size of windows, number of people in the room, heat generating appliances and even exposure of ceiling and walls to the sun light, that decides the tonnage required for your space. So, do double check, if 1.5 tons AC is adequate for your room size. Thanks to its Dual rotary compressor design, this AC cools faster than any other ordinary and single rotary inverter AC due to its improved compression torque and high frequency operation. It takes less than a minute before you notice the temperature of the room starts going down and just a few minutes to get that desired cooling.

This model offers Convertible 5-in-1 Cooling feature which allows you to step down or step up the cooling capacity as per your need and hence result in less power consumption. This feature comes handy when you really dont need AC to run to its full cooling capacity like at night or you need more than full cooling capacity when you have a party at home and a lot of activity is happening in the room.


The Main highlight of this AC and one of the reason making this AC so popular in this pandemic is its advance air filters that deactivates disease causing Viruses and Bacteria. This AC comes with a High Density Air filter which is better than ordinary dust filters and clean up to 80% dust and pollen from air.  Secondly, this same filter mesh is coated with Cationic Silver Ions that once in contact with Virus or bacteria, dissolve their outer layer and deactivates them. This HD Filter with Anti Virus Protection mechanism deactivates up to 99.76% Virus and up to 99.99% bacteria and hence ensures that you and your family breathe very clean and healthy air during this time of pandemic.  


This AC comes with the highest possible energy efficiency rating of 5 Stars with ISEER Value 4.73. Dual Inverter compressor and 5 Star rating make this AC very energy efficient and perfect for those whose need AC throughout the day and most of the months in a year. It consumes only 819 units of electricity annually which is possibly the lowest among AC with similar capacity and energy rating. If we go by the Electricity Cost Calculator on LG website, you will pay around 16,000 rupees annually in electricity bill if you are living in a really hot region where AC compressor needs to run 80% of the time to keep up with the outside heat and you run this AC for 10 hours a day for 8 months in a year.


Diverse Indian climate conditions and pollutants present in the air, cause corrosion of AC condenser coil. This corrosion ultimately determines the life of an AC and it also affects the cooling rate over time. This AC comes with inner grooved 100% Copper Coil, which provides several advantages over aluminum coil, like better heat dissipation, easy maintenance, strength and most importantly durability, as copper metal is less susceptible to corrosion. Anti-corrosive Ocean Black Protection, is an additional layer of protection applied to the condenser coil and critical parts of outdoor unit. And protects it from getting exposed to dust, smoke and chemicals present in the environment. Hence provides exceptional durability and extends the life of the Air Conditioner. This AC comes with 10 years warranty on compressor with Gas Charges Included, incase needed. 5 year on PCB and 1 year on overall product and condenser. Which is quite inline with the other premium AC with similar specifications.

6. Design And Practicality

Indoor unit of this AC comes with elegant and modern looking design, which blends perfectly well with the modern or contemporary style of living space design. From Practicality front, this AC scores good as well. Its indoor unit is Super Silent with only  31 dB of Noise Level, which is equivalent to the sound level present inside a Library. So it is almost noiseless source of cool and fresh air, which will let you take peaceful and comfortable sleep that you need at the end of the day. Comes with "4 Way Swing" which ensures uniform cooling in all directions and air circulation throughout the room. "Himalaya Cool" is kind of Quick Cool mode, for faster cooling when it is required. Auto Clean feature automatically dries out the heat exchanger and hence prevents formation of bacterias and mold in and around it. Stabilizer Free Operation, that protects this AC from voltage fluctuation in the range of 120, to 290 Volts . Thats a very wide voltage range and it means, you do not have to shell another 2,000 to 2,500 rupees for a separate Voltage Stabilizer and fit it next to the electric outlet that you have provisioned for this AC. But those who want to ensure, that your AC is protected even when there is a voltage surge beyond 290 Volts, may go for installing a separate Voltage Stabilizer. Such a high voltage surge is very uncommon, but possible in a situation when lightning strikes in nearby areas or any electric accidents. Last is, Environmental Friendly R-32 Refrigerant. This refrigerant gas is far better than widely used refrigerants today such as R-22 and R Four One 0A. It has very low global warming potential, that is only one-third of R-22. Because it efficiently conveys heat, it can reduce electricity consumption up to approximately 10%, compared to the others. Its low toxicity and flammability makes it safe alternative for use in home appliances.
