Samsung’s award-winning Wind-Free™ wall-mounted air conditioner has been described as the ideal appliance for overcoming Africa’s traditionally warm and humid climate as well as high cost of electricity.
The new AR9500M air conditioner has Samsung’s exclusive Wind-Free™ Cooling technology integrated into its design, which enables customers to obtain both a cooler indoor climate and optimal energy efficiency, without having to experience uncomfortable direct airflow.
“The cool and efficient air conditioning capabilities of the AR9500M are ideal for tackling the African heat, while at the same time optimising your electricity bills. Moreover, the appliance eliminates the usual discomfort associated with air-conditioners, that of having cold wind blowing directly out of the machine,” says Michael McKechnie, Director: Digital Appliances at Samsung South Africa.
The AR9500M is designed to provide customers with ideal room conditions, by maintaining a comfortable temperature while using Wind-Free™ Cooling to gently disperse cold air through 21,000 micro air holes.
The two-step cooling system means that temperatures are initially lowered rapidly in ‘Fast Cooling Mode’, before the system automatically switches to ‘Wind-Free™ Cooling Mode’, which creates ‘still air’ once the desired temperature is reached. This approach can also reduce energy consumption by up to 72%.
Using Samsung’s new Digital Inverter 8-Pole with POWERboost technology™, the AR9500M’s motor generates fewer torque fluctuations. This reduces the overall energy required and shortens the time needed for the compressor to reach its maximum speed (Hertz).
The air-conditioner is Wi-Fi-enabled, meaning that it can be controlled from anywhere, through Samsung’s Smart Home app using a Samsung mobile device. 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 necessary.
“In addition to its lower energy consumption and rapid cooling properties, the AR9500M’s unique Triangle Architecture has a wider inlet, allowing more air to be drawn in at once. At the same time, the optimal width and angle of the outlet, extra v-blades and large fan – 22% larger than previous models – ensures that air is cooled and expelled faster, farther and wider, to reach every corner of the room,” McKechnie concludes.
