Samsung’s Wind-Free Air-Con An International Hit
Samsung has plans to go bigger with its wind-free air conditioner, after sales jumped 75 per cent in the first half of 2021, as parts of North America go through heatwaves.
The wind-free air conditioner disperses air through 270,000 micro air holes, cooling without a directed cold draft, providing what Samsung calls “a still air environment.”
The appliance is available in 80 country, but after its 2021 success, Samsung looks to expand distribution to a further ten countries.
Samsung says the air conditioner has made up 40 per cent of its total air conditioner sales in Europe and North America, and 24 per cent of sales in Central and South America, this year.
In South Korea, it accounts for 80 per cent of total sales.
The Samsung AR9500 Wind-Free Geo 2.5kW Reverse Cycle Split System Air Conditioner is available for roughly $999 in Australia.
