“Consumers are looking for energy efficient products, and our new range of refrigerators and air-conditioners has been designed to suit their needs,” said Mr. Rishi Suri, Director of Samsung India’s Consumer Electronics Division. “At Samsung, we listen to our consumers and develop meaningful innovations that make their lives better.”

The Digital Inverter range is equipped with world’s first 8-pole motor, ensuring faster cooling performance of up to 43%. This range consumes lesser energy as compared to conventional air conditioners.


The entire New S-Inverter range will come with BEE ISEER rating.


For increased durability, the outdoor unit’s DuraFin™ is corrosion resistant as compared to conventional PFC. The large condenser unit and optimized refrigerant flow enable the refrigerator to endure extremely hot outdoor temperatures of up to 52°C.


Samsung air conditioner range comes with a new Voltage Protector feature. Best suited for India, these air conditioners with Voltage Protector can handle voltage fluctuations from 146V to 290V ensuring worry-free operation. In addition, they also improve the look of homes as there is no need to install an external stabilizer.


All 1.5T and bigger Samsung air conditioner models come with highly efficient twin BLDC (Brushless DC electric motor) that reduces variation by 40%, when compared to the conventional compressor. Twin BLDC compressor increases reliability, reduces noise and provides longer product life.
