Samsung Gulf Electronics unveiled the world’s first ‘Wind-Free’ wall-mounted air-conditioner, which is suited to the Saudi climate, at the recent HVACR Expo Saudi, a dedicated indoor climate and refrigeration event, held in Jeddah.

Samsung’s air-conditioner has integrated its exclusive Wind-Free Cooling technology into its design, providing customers with a cooler indoor climate, and optimal energy efficiency, without the discomfort of direct cold airflow.

“Consumers will love the cool, efficient air conditioning capabilities of the Wind-Free air-conditioner in their living and working spaces,” remarks Ismail Yoon, the managing director at Samsung Gulf Electronics Saudi Arabia. “And they will really love that they no longer have to deal with uncomfortable, cold air, as well as benefit from reduced electricity bills.”

The Wind-Free air-conditioner maintains a comfortable room temperature, using Wind-Free Cooling to gently disperse cold air through 21,000 micro air holes.

“The two-step cooling system first lowers temperature in ‘fast cooling mode’ and then automatically switches to ‘Wind-Free Cooling mode’, creating ‘still air’ once the desired temperature is reached,” explains Saher Hilal, the head of air-conditioning at Samsung Saudi Arabia.

This approach can also reduce energy consumption by up to 72 per cent compared to the fast cooling mode, he notes.

Using Samsung’s new Digital Inverter 8-Pole with Powerboost technology, the compressor’s motor generates fewer torque fluctuations – reducing the overall energy required and shortening the time needed for the compressor to reach its maximum rotation speed.

The Samsung air-conditioner is also Wi-Fi-enabled so it can be controlled from anywhere through its Smart Home app. Users can remotely regulate temperature, adjust settings, receive real-time updates about performance and daily energy usage, as well as troubleshoot solutions when a repair is needed, states Hilal.

The Wind-Free air-conditioner’s unique Triangle Architecture has a wider inlet which allows more air to be drawn in at once, while the optimal width and angle of the outlet, extra v-blades, and large fan – 22 per cent larger than previous models – ensure air is cooled and expelled faster, farther and wider, to reach every corner of the room, he adds.

Samsung Gulf Electronics unveiled as well the world’s first Wind-Free one-way and four-way cassette air-conditioners, using Samsung’s exclusive Wind-Free Cooling technology in its design.
