Click To Read Reviews


Build Aspect

WindFree split AC is a new type of AC with air dispersing though the regular louvers or though thousand of holes on the IDU. Looks wise the AC feels like any other AC, other than the hitherto unheard of 23000 micro holes, that’s quite something! Overall stature and looks remain predominantly like any other split AC though. Likewise the AC is made of good quality plastics and does feel very high in quality, save for the ODU which is although well built feels a bit light in weight.

Performance Aspect

On the cooling front the compressor is an inverter tech motor with a quintessential 22179 BTU / hour cooling. On the other hand, its quite efficient sipping only 806.26 units per year which calculates to a 4.80 w/w energy efficiency rating. With the WindFree technology this AC aims to paint a new portrait in the history of air conditioners. The blower is a capable one with max air flow of 656 CFM. However if direct drafts cause irritation you can simply switch to WindFree mode which closes the louvers and the air is then pushed out through the gazillion holes on the AC, effortlessly. Consequently cool air is released at a constant pace without the occupant feeling or getting irritated with direct drafts or gusts. On the whole its a fantastic AC, with some new tech under or rather above the hood and hence worthy of being termed one of the best 1.5 Ton split Air conditioner.

Incase of Unavailability do view Samsung AR18BYNANWK AC, its the same literally!
