June 26, 2020, Amsterdam, the Netherlands – Samsung Electronics Air Conditioner Europe B.V. (SEACE) today officially launches the Wind-Free™ Deluxe: the new wall-mounted air conditioner model for its VRF (DVM) and Eco Heating System (EHS) heat pump product range, featuring the unique Wind-Free™ Cooling technology and smart control functionalities. For EHS, the Wind-Free™ Deluxe can be combined with the TDM Plus heat pump and Tank Integrated Hydro Unit, to form a ClimateHub solution for cooling, heating and domestic hot water supply.
“With the introduction of the new Samsung Wind-Free™ wall-mounted range for residential applications earlier this year we reinforced our leadership position in bringing innovative cooling and heating products to the market. But it has always been our goal to make Wind-Free™ technology also available for a wider audience.” said Xavier Feys, Vice President Pre-Sales, Business Development, Customer Service and Product Management at SEACE. “With the Wind-Free™ Deluxe, we are now able to realise that goal and offer more users the opportunity to experience a comfortable indoor climate without unpleasant cold drafts.”
Wind-Free™ cooling technology
Similar to the Wind-Free™ wall-mounted models for residential usage, the Wind-Free™ Deluxe is equipped with the unique Samsung Wind-Free™ technology. Wind-Free™ technology enhances indoor comfort by using thousands of micro-holes to disperse fresh air uniformly without any unpleasant blasts of cold wind. In Wind-Free™ mode, air is spread softly and silently, creating a ‘Still Air'1 environment that allows people to live, work and relax comfortably without experiencing unpleasant cold drafts.
The Samsung Wind-Free™ Deluxe can be operated via wired or wireless controllers that feature various advanced functions for convenient control of indoor climates. Additionally, the unit can be controlled and monitored remotely by using the Samsung SmartThings App and Bixby Voice Control2 letting users turn their air conditioner on or off, select preferred cooling modes, schedule operations, and monitor energy consumption. For Smart functions to be available, the optional Wi-Fi kit needs to be installed.
The new unit has been designed to be installed and serviced easier and faster than conventional wall-mounted models. Compared to conventional brackets, the Wind-Free™ Deluxe uses a roller type bracket that easily slides into place and for which only two installation screws are needed. This results in an up to 45% shorter installation time compared to conventional models3. Additionally, the unit features a snap-fit bottom cover that can be easily opened and closed in case of servicing. Due to the outside placement of the air filters, servicing can be done without opening the entire unit.
Within the EHS range, the Wind-Free™ Deluxe can be combined with the TDM Plus system. This system is an ‘All-In-One’ Air-to-Water (A2W) and Air-to-Air (A2A) system that offers a complete home climate solution. It can be used throughout the year for cooling and heating to meet a variety of different user situations and needs. It enables underfloor heating/cooling and radiator heating, as well as offering air-to-air cooling with various options for air conditioning, such as the new Wind-Free™ Deluxe. The system’s potential can be maximized by connecting to Smart Grid or Solar Power (PV).
Samsung’s Wind-Free™ Deluxe models are available as from today as DVM (Variable Refrigerant Flow) and Eco Heating System (EHS).
- For VRF (DVM) the units range in capacity from 1.5 to 8.2 KW and are available with and without an EEV kit.
- For EHS the units range in capacity from 1.5 to 8.2 KW and are only available with an EEV kit.
- The availability of the different ranges may differ per local market.
