Samsung Wind-Free 2.0 series specifications and features

Starting with the Wind-Free 2.0 series, as per Samsung, the ACs use “23,000 micro-holes” to evenly distribute air across the room, maintaining a comfortable level of temperature without a draught. One the AC reaches the desired temperature, it continues to disperse fresh air. The Wind-Free ACs also feature a new rectangular design compared to the previous triangle design.

Additionally, the ACs are Wi-Fi-enabled, and can be controlled remotely using the Smart Home app. They also feature motion detection sensors, which put the AC into an energy saving mode if it does not detect human presence for 60 minutes.

The Wind-Free 2.0 ACs come with digital inverters, which maintain the set temperature without turning off and on frequently, contributing to energy savings. They also come with an energy savings mode. Additionally, they feature an ‘Easy Filter’ which traps dust, contaminants, allergens, bacteria and viruses.
