Refrigerators equipped with LG Electronics’ Inverter Linear Compressor were recognized by the Association for Electrical, Electronic and Information Technologies (VDE) for their energy efficiency and quiet performance.

The compressor employs a linear piston drive instead of the more conventional reciprocating drive, and as a result the compressor generates less internal friction, which helps increase reliability and durability. The reduction of friction points helps lower energy requirements and noise.

VDE testing showed the refrigerators were approximately 32% more energy efficient than refrigerators with conventional reciprocating compressors. VDE testing compared the energy consumption and noise level between the LG model GBB530NSCXE, with Inverter Linear Compressor, and the LG model GBB530NSQWB, with conventional reciprocating compressor.

VDE also noted that the tested Inverter Linear Compressor refrigerator was about 25% quieter compared. Measured from the front, tests showed that the LG refrigerator emitted 22dB of noise.
