Launch of the WindFree™ Pure 1.0

The new WindFree™ Pure 1.0 wall-mounted air conditioner is Samsung’s new residential innovation for enhanced Indoor Air Quality at home. It is equipped with a PM1.0 Filter for air purification, the unique WindFree™ Cooling technology, Freeze Wash functionality and smart control functionalities to offer optimal climate comfort as well as cleaner air in residential homes. The wall-mounted model is equipped with an electrostatic PM1.0 Filter, which works as an air purifier and can filter dust particles up to 0.3 μm / microns and sterilise certain types of bacteria2 using an electrostatic charger. Additionally, the indoor air quality can be continuously monitored via the SmartThings app3. Even when the unit is turned off, the dust sensor is able to register the current air quality in the room. A notification is sent when air pollution reaches the level ‘poor’ or ‘very poor’. Via the SmartThings app, the user can respond to the information by turning on the purify mode remotely.

Samsung’s vision for the New World

Throughout the event, guests followed various sessions in which Samsung showcased its vision for the New World, focusing on topics such as Indoor Air Quality, sustainability, connectivity and growth opportunities on the residential market. 

With Europeans now spending about 90% of their time indoors4 indoor air quality has become even more crucial for the industry in 2021, with The World Health Organization stressing the importance and the topic becoming increasingly studied by scientists. During the event, Samsung demonstrated their new Air Purification Panels with PM1.0 Filter and how they purify air. 

Together with Project Etopia, Samsung showed how their ClimateHub TDM Plus solutions works. With the European Green Deal aiming to reform the existing European Energy system into an efficient and integrated one, the transition from traditional heating to more sustainable heating solutions like Heat Pumps is emerging rapidly as a viable solution across Europe. These developments, alongside the use of advanced digital technology facilitating smart connectivity are the most efficient steps forward on the path to improving convenience while saving energy – both in the short and long term. 

The event also hosted various in-depth presentations catering to HVAC consultants, giving them more insights into Samsung’s new DVM S2 range, the EHS TDM Plus solution and the DVM Pro 2.0 software.
