Wind-free is the latest Samsung innovation which has been designed to eliminate nuisance draughts when the unit operates on cool mode.
When an air conditioning unit produces cooled air, the louvres open and cold air is discharged from the outlet grilles. On conventional air conditioning systems the grille remains open throughout, even when the unit reaches it’s set-point temperature. This can cause draughts for people sitting near the air conditioner.
To eliminate these unwanted draughts, Samsung has introduced the “wind-free” concept. The louvres and outlet panels are manufactured with thousands of tiny perforations. As the air conditioning unit reaches it’s set-point temperature, the louvres close and the unit continues to produce cooling with the air now forced through the perforations. This results in a very gentle flow of cooled air into the room which cannot be perceived by anyone sitting close to the air conditioner.
