Samsung Electronics will showcase the world premiere of a completely new wall-mounted air conditioner platform with R32 refrigerant, featuring its unique Wind-Free™ cooling technology and new smart functionalities, at Interclima 2019 in Paris.

Being one of Europe’s landmark tradeshows for air conditioner and heating solutions, Interclima is the ideal place for Samsung to underscore its commitment to the European market and announce the new range for 2020 ahead of its global launch in various markets around the world.

“Samsung’s participation at Interclima demonstrates our ongoing mission to create climate solutions that deliver distinctive performance in our key markets,” said Wim Vangeenberghe, Vice President Global HVAC Solution Business at Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd and President at SEACE. “Samsung’s new air conditioner range for 2020 combines our renowned Wind-Free™ cooling technology with new AI-powered smart features that maximise consumer comfort while meeting the demand for higher energy-efficiency.”

Wind-Free™ cooling technology

Samsung introduced the market’s first wall-mounted air conditioner with Wind-Free™ technology in Europe in 2017. Air conditioners with Wind-Free™ technology follow a three-step cooling mode. In the first step, the temperature is lowered quickly in Fast Cooling mode. Second, it uses a dehumidifying feature to set the optimal level of humidity. Finally, when the desired temperature is reached, Wind-Free™ Cooling mode is activated to maintain those levels and provide an ideal level of comfort.

In Wind-Free™ Cooling mode, fresh air is dispersed gently and evenly through thousands of micro-holes, creating a “Still Air” condition*. It allows people to live, work and relax comfortably without experiencing unpleasant cold drafts.

Smart operation

The new Wind-Free™ range also optimises the cooling process with its AI (Artificial Intelligence) Auto Cooling feature**, allowing consumers to use their air conditioner more efficiently. AI Auto Cooling analyses room conditions, user-preferred temperatures and cooling modes, and even the outdoor climate to automatically switch to the most appropriate setting. 

It has a built-in Motion Detect Sensor (MDS)** that tracks user movements to cool efficiently while avoiding wasting energy. The sensor can detect when there are no users in the room, automatically changing the air conditioner settings to slightly increase the temperature or turn on the standby mode.

Enhanced energy efficiency

The new generation Wind-Free™ wall-mounted air conditioners use Samsung’s new energy-efficient Digital Inverter Boost compressor, allowing consumers to maintain their desired temperature while reducing energy consumption. The new Digital Inverter Boost compressor is developed to help maintaining indoor temperature in an efficient way, and not having to turn the unit on and off repeatedly. The top of the range Wind-Free™ unit comes with an A+++ energy label for both SEER and SCOP, the highest energy rating achievable in Europe

* ASHRAE (American Society of Heating, Refrigeration, and Air-Conditioning Engineers) defines “Still Air” as air currents moving at speeds below 0.15m/s, which lacks the presence of cold draughts.

** Availability of described features may be subject to execution.

*** Energy rating is based on 9k BTU version and is according to EU No 626/2011 (Lot 10) label classification 2019, on a scale from D to A+++.
