Your guide to smart
Welcome to the Samsung Smart Zone
The SMART ZONE is an informative area which allows you to access key information, by either viewing our how to videos, learning about our Smart Series or simply providing you with hints and tips across all our air conditioners.
Samsung Smart Series
When connected to your in house Wi-Fi network, your compatible Smartphone acts like another remote control. However line of sight is not always needed. For example, you could turn on your Air Conditioning unit from your compatible phone or Tab in the upstairs bedroom whilst you sit on the lounge watching TV so that your room is nice and cool before coming up to sleep.
Out of Home
Using your compatible phone or Tab you can now control your Air Conditioning unit from virtually anywhere outside of your home. When connected out of home, you will need to be on a 3G, 4G or Wi-Fi network.
Forgotten to turn your air conditioner off?
Samsung Smart Series™ allows you to turn it off virtually wherever you are.* Before you get home, check the current temperature in the room and turn your air conditioner on to your preferred temperature so it's to your comfort on arrival.
The comfort level in the room is not only a function of temperature. Humidity levels in a room can make you feel uncomfortable, even at the desired temperature. In D'Light Cool mode, the AC unit measures both temperature and humidity. In humid environments even at a cool temperature, humidity levels can be high, making the occupants feel uncomfortable. The D'Light Cool mode will make an assessment of both temperature and humidity and so even if the required temperature is reached, the unit will continue to dehumidify until a comfortable index level is reached.
Air Conditioner Hints and Tips
- Don't neglect your outdoor unit as it is vital to air conditioning as it generates the cool air for your air conditioner.
- Check the unit regularly to ensure that it is free from leaves, overgrown grass, insect nests, dirt etc as these can create blockages and damage the unit
- Once every 12 months give the outside casing a wash with soapy water and then apply a layer of car polish to protect the casing from the elements and help maximise the life of your air conditioner
- Check for any wear or damage to the hoses coming out of the unit. This can result in a leak of the refrigerant gas which will require a service call to re-gas the unit.
- Turn on the air conditioner before the house is hot otherwise it takes extra energy to cool the house to a comfortable level.
- Use blinds and shades to keep the heat out.
- Close doors to all non air-conditioned "utility" rooms like toilets, laundry, walk-in wardrobes etc. Cooling these rooms can be a waste of energy.
- For windows exposed to the westerly aspect, keep these shaded during the peak temperature of the day (i.e. over 30°C)
- If your home is unoccupied during the day (e.g. at work), use the timer operation and set the air conditioner to start about 2 hours before you get home. That way when you arrive home the house is already cool.
Did you know?
An air conditioner is a sealed system and the gas does not “wear out” so it should not require regular re-gassing each year. If the unit is not cooling to best effect check your filters and remote control setting before calling for service.
How Samsung Air Conditioner works:
1. The Compressor discharges the refrigerant gas at a high temperature and high pressure.
2. As the refrigerant gas flows through the condenser coil it is then cooled by the air from a fan therefore reducing the temperature and pressure of the refrigerant. At this point the refrigerant changes state from a gas to a liquid. Then the liquid refrigerant flows down the liquid line through a drier which filters the liquid refrigerant and aims to remove contaminants.
3. Then the liquid refrigerant passes through a metering device which meters the refrigerant as it enters the evaporator therefore lowering the temperature and pressure as the liquid boils off therefore producing the cooling effect.
4. As the liquid refrigerant enters the evaporator the refrigerant evaporates and changes its state from a liquid to a gas as the temperature and pressure is reduced therefore producing low temperatures in the evaporator. A fan then blows air through the cold evaporator into the room.
What's an Inverter Air Conditioner?
An Inverter air conditioner refers to the operating speed of the compressor which is located in the outdoor unit. The inverter compressor is a variable speed compressor. The compressor will increase and decrease its speed to maintain the desired room temperature indicated on the remote controller.
- Accurate room temperature control.
- Fast cooling and heating performance.
- Quiet indoor and outdoor operation.
How to size an Air Conditioning System?
The most accurate method for sizing an air conditioner is to do a heat load calculation on the room to be air conditioned through the use of an approved Heat Load computer program.
Ready Reckon - Air Conditioner Sizing
For a brick/veneer insulated home: 10m² - 2kW to 3kW
15m² - 2.5kW to 3.5kW
20m² - 3kW to 4kW
30m² - 3.5kW to 5.2kW
40m² - 4.8kW to 6.2kW
50m² - 5.2kW to 7.2kW
60m² - 6.8kW to 8kW
