Keep cool this sum­mer with ‘green’ prod­ucts

Weekend Witness - - News -

THE buzz word in the tech­sphere over the past cou­ple of years has been “green” and even man­u­fac­tur­ers of house­hold tech­nol­ogy have cot­toned on to the trend, and soon your air con­di­tioner will be “greener” too.

With tem­per­a­tures in KwaZulu­Natal fluc­tu­at­ing be­tween hot and cold, one can never de­cide what kind of en­vi­ron­ment to be in.

Now a new range of air con­di­tion­ers from var­i­ous man­u­fac­tur­ers cater for the de­sire to be warmed up when cold or cooled down when hot with a lesser im­pact on the envi­ ron­ment.

Ear­lier this week, Sam­sung an­nounced the launch of a new line of air con­di­tion­ers that could be con­trolled us­ing wifi de­vices at an event held at the Zim­bali lodge in Bal­lito. The new tri­an­gu­lar de­sign helps them work faster with an en­ergy­ef­fi­cient so­lu­tion. The new air con­di­tion­ers fea­ture a virus doc­tor to con­trol the dust, al­ler­gens and bac­te­ria in the air.

“They are de­signed to be ex­cep­tion­ally ef­fi­cient; the unique tri­an­gu­lar air con­di­tioner has a wider inlet, wider out­let and a big­ger fan to en­sure that air is cooled or heated and ex­pelled faster, fur­ther and wider — mean­ing that ev­ery cor­ner of a room is reached,” said Michael McKech­nie, of Sam­sung Elec­tron­ics Dig­i­tal Air So­lu­tions

The prod­ucts also come with a 10­year­war­ranty and can be con­trolled us­ing most Sam­sung smart­phones or tablets.

Also this week, vice­pres­i­dent of LG Elec­tron­ics Ted Han an­nounced the launch of their In­verter V air con­di­tion­ers. These are able to con­sume 69% less en­ergy and op­er­ate silently. — Wit­ness Re­porter.
