From palm leaf to revolutionary WindFree™ technology – a sustainability leader and technology innovator
Modern air conditioning relies on the process of evaporation to cool and humidify the air at the same time. Although this concept is constantly being improved, its roots go back to ancient Egypt, where reeds were hung from windows and moistened with trickling water. When the wind blew through the window, the water evaporated and helped bring down the scorching Saharan heat. Later, in ancient Rome, water from aqueducts circulated through the walls of some houses to cool3 their. In medieval Persia, cisterns and wind towers were used to cool buildings during the hot season.
The first air conditioner resembling the system we know today was installed in a home in the United States of America in 1914. The inventors’ understanding of scientific principles had grown by leaps and bounds between ancient Egypt and the United States of the early 20th century. The principle of evaporation remained intact, but the process was now achieved by driving air through water-cooled coils.
Just over a century after this invention, air conditioners are now widely used across the world, in homes, businesses and cars. Most of the air conditioning systems used today still rely on these methods. Because Samsung has always understood the importance of being nimble in this fast-paced and ever-changing technological evolution, the company has designed innovative digital air solutions that connect with the changing values and needs of modern life. Additionally, Samsung has been committed over the years to delivering a meaningful experience that both meets diverse customer demands and enhances consumers’ quality of life.
The shift from centuries of palm fronds to revolutionary WindFree™ technology demonstrates Samsung’s passion for the continuous evolution of its products to bring the latest digital innovations to its customers. This new WindFree™ technology, guaranteed for 10 years, bears witness to Samsung’s considerable experience in the air conditioning market. Over the years, Samsung has been recognized and won a few technology innovation awards. The company believes this is because innovation and people-centric excellence are not just buzzwords, but core values of Samsung. He also believes that innovation is essential as well as the people who will use the products.
Over the years, Samsung has ensured that its digital aerial solutions respond to the demanding and varied climate changes of the African continent. As a socially responsible organization that knows the importance of producing environmentally friendly products, Samsung has succeeded in creating some of the most energy efficient air conditioning products available. Its WindFree™ line of air conditioning products are designed to reduce energy consumption and help reduce the carbon footprint.
Samsung’s efforts to reduce human impact on the planet were recently recognized by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) when it received two awards in recognition of the company’s achievements in as sustainable development.2 leader and innovator. Some of the other sustainability awards2 to understand:
- The German Institute for Quality and Finance (ITQF), a European leader in quality surveys, awarded Samsung Climate Solutions in Italy the “Top Value for Money 2021” award.
- Besides its Climate Solutions business, Samsung was also ranked number 1 in the Mobile, TV and Home Appliances category, making Samsung one of the top 30 Italian companies recognized for its excellent value for money.
These awards highlight Samsung’s legacy of achievement in developing breakthrough innovations that propel the industry forward.
