Why the invention of air-conditioners remains a breath of fresh air
JOHANNESBURG, South Africa, 18 September 2019 – Technology has shaped our lives in extraordinary ways. In under a century, we’ve transformed our reality with the rise of the internet, smartphones to electric cars, biological engineering, artificial intelligence and even augmented reality. However, sometimes it’s the simplest technological solutions like air-conditioning that makes all the difference. Being able to keep cool in summer and warm in winter is a gift that keeps on giving.
“Technology is here to make life easier. That’s why, we’re committed to the relentless pursuit of innovation that makes every day, that much better. The air-conditioner is a wonderful example of technology that makes a real difference,” says Robert Larkan, Head of Digital Air Solutions at Samsung South Africa.
Your air-conditioner is a dream investment
The magic temperature range for a good sleep is between *15 and 20 degrees Celsius. While 15 degrees may feel too cold for some and 20 degrees too hot for others, once you find your sweet spot you’ll be in dreamland in no time. The science behind it is simple. This temperature range assists the body to reach the cooler temperatures that induce deep sleep.
Your air conditioner is good for your health
Keeping in shape does wonders for your mind, body and soul. However, air pollution and other environmental factors can trigger respiratory problems like allergies and asthma. It’s therefore perfectly fine and sometimes better to train indoors, according to the American Lung Association*. If you do put your air-conditioner on while training, you can maintain a comfortable temperature, while attempting those new moves you saw on Youtube.
Air-conditioners protect us
While the cold may make you more susceptible to illness, a common cold is caused by bacteria, not cold temperatures.
“Samsung’s Wind-Free™ air-conditioner has a filter that captures dust, dangerous contaminants and allergens thanks to its Virus Doctor. This helps you eliminate harmful viruses and bacteria, contributing to your health and wellbeing in winter and summer,” says Larkan.
Air conditioners are our biggest fan
When it comes to indoor cooling, air-conditioners are far more effective. Instead of simply moving air around, like a conventional fan does, air-conditioners like Samsung’s Wind-Free™ system, gently disperses cool and still air through micro air holes for a natural cooling effect. And because it’s energy efficient, it also has a positive effect on your energy bill.
We live in a world of boundless creativity. Through the power of technology, there is always something new and shiny to capture our imagination. However, the classics never die. They just get better like a breath of fresh air.
