Click To Read Reviews


Build Aspect

WindFree split AC is a new type of AC with air dispersing though the regular flap or thousand of micro holes on the cover of the IDU. Looks wise the AC feels like any other AC, other than the hitherto unheard of 23000 micro holes, that’s 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 malnourished. The best part is the easy access to filter, its so easy top open and clean it.

Performance Aspect

On the cooling front the compressor is an inverter tech unit with a fantastic 22179 BTU / hr cooling capacity. 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. This AC aims to paint a new portrait in the history of ACs with the WindFree technology. The blower is decently specced pushing around 656 CFM of air at its max through the louvers. However if this seems irritating you can simply switch to WindFree mode which closes the flaps and the air is then pushed out through the gazillion holes on the AC. This makes sure that cool air is released at a constant pace without the occupant feeling drafts or gusts, much akin to oil radiators. On the whole this 1.5 ton Split AC is certainly one of the best you can buy currently.

  1. Mithun

    Wind free good. I like this ac very much. Lets see how perform is summer.

  2. Tushi Chowta

    Nothing special about windfree.. It’s just like keeping louver at top position and avoiding air.
    Cooling is good. Better to go for other brand like LG or Panasonic. I find cooling better in them
