Samsung Electronics launches Wind-Free™ Air Conditioner at CES 2017
Through new cooling technology, the Samsung AR9500M guarantees enhanced air conditioning and reduced energy.
Samsung Electronics unveiled its first ever, award-winning Wind-Free™ wall-mounted air conditioner at CES 2017 in Las Vegas, following the huge success of its floor-standing Wind-Free™ air conditioner in South Korea. The AR9500M air conditioner has integrated Samsung’s exclusive Wind-Free™ Cooling technology into its design – providing customers with better cooling comfort and optimal energy efficiency with each use. With the AR9500M, families can enjoy quality time and fun bonding moments at home without the uncomfortable feeling of direct cold air blow in the room.
“Consumers will love the cool, efficient air conditioning capabilities of the AR9500M in their home,” said Byung-Sam Seo, President of home appliances at Samsung Electronics. “And they will really love that they no longer have to deal with uncomfortable, cold air – as well as reduced electric bills.”
The AR9500M provides customers with the ideal condition by maintaining the comfortable room temperature, using Wind-Free™ Cooling to gently disperse cold air through 21,000 micro air holes. A two-step cooling system which first lowers temperatures in “Fast Cooling Mode” and then automatically switches to “Wind-Free™ Cooling Mode” creating “still air” once the desired temperature is reached. This approach can also reduce energy consumption by up to 72 percent compared to Fast Cooling mode.
Using Samsung’s new Digital Inverter 8-Pole with POWERboost technology™, the AR9500M’s motor generates fewer torque fluctuations – reducing the overall energy required and shortening the time needed for the compressor to reach its maximum speed(Hertz).
The AR9500M features an Ultra-Wide PM 2.5 filter which assures customers that the air produced is purified and ideal for the home.
The AR9500M’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 percent larger than previous models – ensure air is cooled and expelled faster, farther and wider, to reach every corner of the room.
The AR9500M air conditioner will be available in Samsung Experience Stores and authorized dealers nationwide in March 2017.
* The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers defines “Still Air” as air currents at speeds below 0.15m/s which lacks the presence of cold drafts.
** Tested on AR07M5170HA, based on the accumulated power consumption of Fast Cooling Mode vs. Wind-Free™ Mode. When compared to Normal Cooling Mode, Wind-Free™ Cooling Mode consumes 55% less energy.
