1. Toshiba YouMe, $3,249, available at authorised retailers.
Delivering the lowest energy consumption for any 5-tick Global Warming Potential (GWP) Inverter Multi Split (IMS) air-conditioner in Singapore, the Toshiba YouMe features a smart self-cleaning coil that cleans itself to prevent the growth of mould. When switched off, the blower inside continues to run at a low speed for up to 20 minutes to dry the coils and get rid of any built up moisture. The special aqua-coated aluminium technology also helps keep dirt and debris from building up in the unit, resulting in a longer lifespan of the air con unit and money saved from servicing.
Harnessing the energy of smart engineering, the YouMe is also good for the environment as it releases up to 72% fewer CO2 emissions compared to other brands.
2. LG Styler, $2,999, available at Harvey Norman, Courts, Best Denki and Gain City.

Rushing for a party? Simply activate the styler while you’re still at work, and have your clothes ironed out and ready for you when you’re home for the outfit change. With the SmartThinQ remote control technology, the LG Styler can be conveniently activated and controlled from a smartphone anywhere and anytime.
