Air Conditioner Buying Guide: Tips on buying the best air conditioner

By Samsung Australia,  10.12.2015.

With air conditioning, it's possible to experience the bliss of sprawling in front of the cold air on a sweltering day. On a hot summer’s evening, you can have a cool night’s sleep, and the whole family will be able to relax without sweating.

Our guide will help you to navigate the options and find the best air conditioner for your home.

1. Choose your type of air conditioner

Whether you work from a home office, or require the whole house or just one room to be cool, you want the right type of air conditioner for your needs. Split air conditioners are quiet, look stylish and provide great air distribution. They cool rooms and open plan areas of up to 60 square metres.

2. Sleep easy, without being too cold

A good night's sleep can make the difference between a productive day and a horrible one. Samsung's Good Sleep Mode feature is designed to create comfortable temperatures throughout the night so the whole family rests easy. For example, you don't want to get too cold at night when the air conditioner is operating, so automatically raising the temperature slightly at night when everyone is asleep and already cooled helps keep you comfortable at night.

3. Capacity - cool your home fast, far and wide

The right air conditioner for your home depends on many factors, including room size, insulation, size of windows, house orientation and time of year. Samsung offers an intelligent triangular design to help the air conditioner take in and give out lots of air, providing powerful performance that cools your home fast, far and wide.

4. Inverter technology

Samsung's digital air conditioners with inverter technology are a smart choice. Inverter air conditioners constantly alter fan and motor speeds to help maintain the optimum.

5. Smart machines

Now you have the freedom to move around and still monitor the cooling. When connected to your in house Wi-Fi network, Samsung's air conditioner apps help you to manage and monitor an air conditioner's status and a range of settings, including the timer and the off button from your compatible device 1. Adjust the temperature of any room from almost anywhere in the home (or outside where there's connectivity). These apps can also text you if there is a simple error, or when it's time to clean the filter.

Samsung offers sensors that detect whether anyone is in the room, so the unit knows whether to keep working or not.
