The world’s first 'wind-free' wall-mounted air-conditioner (AC) was launched at the HVACR Expo in Jeddah, being held between 14 and 16 January, 2018.

This AC, designed for the typical Saudi Arabian climate, has integrated Samsung’s Wind-Free Cooling technology into its design, and promises to provide cooler indoor climates and optimal energy efficiency, without the discomfort of direct, cold airflow.

Ismail Yoon, managing director at Samsung Gulf Electronics Saudi Arabia, said: “Consumers will love the cool, efficient air-conditioning capabilities of the Wind-Free Air-conditioner in their living and working spaces. 

“And they will really love that they no longer have to deal with uncomfortable, cold air, as well as reduced electricity bills.”

The Wind-Free Air-conditioner provides customers with the ideal condition by maintaining a comfortable room temperature, using Wind-Free Cooling to gently disperse cold air through 21,000 micro air holes. 

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

The AC is also Wi-Fi-enabled so it can be controlled through Samsung’s 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, the company said.
