Samsung Electronics East Africa Ltd., has launched its new range of air conditioners to meet growing demand in energy efficient, less space consuming, and eco-friendly products in the property sphere.
The country has in the past few years experienced a property boom with contractors taking advantage of the vertical space for more returns from commercial and residential commercialization leading to demand of single unit air conditioners and chillers as opposed to several units.
Speaking during the launch Samsung E.A Ltd vice president and Managing Director Mr. Hyung Jung Park said, ” Samsung is continuously innovating to meet the property market demands by offering unique cooling experiences, resource conservation and efficient recourse allocation with our new range of Air conditioners and Chillers”
He added that Samsung will endeavor to expand the capability of the products with the escalation of major projects in a various counties.
The new range, which are smart products, include the 360 Cassette air conditioning unit, DVM Chiller, next generation DVM S 30HP, and new side discharge VRF unit – the DVM S Eco 14HP to serve real estate which will continue being demanding hence the need for revolutionary, technology integrated products to meet the specific tastes and demands of a visually aware market.
Furthermore air conditioners are becoming a necessity with the recent adverse temperatures experienced in various towns all over the country including Nairobi, Mombasa and Kisumu.
This likely to continue in years to come due to climate change, global warming, industrialization and other factors thus the need for air conditioning systems that operate more efficiently and are less expensive to operate.
The president of the Architects Association of Kenya AAK Mr. Waweru Gathecha applauded the move saying smaller, economic, efficient compatible air conditioners and chillers are a specific area of interest to architects and engineers for elegant architecture and design of living spaces and value for the customers.
He added that the focus has been on releasing space for other purposes in the building by omitting plant rooms and integrating air conditioners and chillers that are better elevated, nicely concealed and of a greater effect aesthetically.
Together, these innovations in HVAC engineering will transform air conditioning by boosting energy efficiency and performance, maximizing space, and increasing cooling speed.
The conditioners also combines elegance and fast comfortable cooling without the cold draft with an increased cooling speed by 34 percent.
