An innovative wall-mount air conditioner designed to provide two types of efficient cooling – strong straight wind air-conditioning and wind-free refreshing air – to suit the situation with smart control. Comfort & Gentle Cooling: the new Wind Free concept expels cool air from micro-perforations (1.4 m in diameter) in the front so that users don’t feel a direct air current (wind speed 0.15 m/s or less). This innovation helps users to enjoy a pleasant sleep and prevents sickness from overexposure. Wide & Seamless Design: perforated patterns on the sides give the air conditioner a wider look, allowing it to blend seamlessly into any modern household.
