Samsung Announces the Launch of Full R32 Range

Samsung Electronics Air Conditioner Europe B.V. (SEACE) has announced a progressive switch to new and lower GWP refrigerant R32 across its entire residential and light commercial air conditioning split system ranges.

Samsung began this process back in 2018, with the launch of R32 RAC (Residential Air Conditioning) wall mounted systems. This has now been completed in 2019 by covering the entire split system range, including the award-winning Wind-free™ products.

Perry Jackson, Head of Air Conditioning at Samsung said; “Most importantly for our customers, at launch, Samsung will not immediately cease availability of equivalent R410A product. However, we will progressively focus our UK stocking profile on the new R32 models, which are more efficient than the previous models. Rather than a gradual conversion of model styles to the new refrigerant, Samsung have developed R32 versions of its entire split system indoor range at launch, including the round 360 Cassette, Wind-free™ cassettes, ducted, wall, ceiling and floor mounted systems.”

In addition to the launch of the R32 range, Samsung will also be releasing a Wind-free™ version of its slim 1way cassette split system. Andrew Faulkner, Commercial Manager at Samsung Climate said “Customers are embracing the numerous benefits of Wind-free™ technology, both reducing running costs and improving comfort levels. So, following the success of the VRF Wind-free™ 1way cassette, we welcome the addition of this model to our split system line-up.”

Due to the fact that the Wind-free™ technology is proving so popular, Samsung has decided not to develop an R32 version of the standard 4-way cassette split systems.

The new R32 refrigerant models achieve a significantly higher efficiency than those using R410A, with SEERs of up to 7.6 and SCOPs of up to 4.6.

The improved R32 range also operates to -20°C in heating, compared to the current -15°C and pre-charge piping lengths have also been increased, which reduces both installation time and costs.
