Haier has launched its first self-cleaning inverter technology air conditioners in India. These air conditioners feature the self-cleaning technology, which is a patented technology by Haier and allows users to automatically clean the evaporator of the air conditioner with the tap of a button. It is a common phenomenon for the dust to accumulate on the evaporator unit of the air conditioner while it is in use.
This can lead to health and hygiene issues such as transmission of bacteria in the air resulting in deterioration of air quality. Further, a dirty evaporator lowers the cooling efficiency by 15-30 per cent and also makes it inconvenient and expensive for consumers to manually clean it.
In order to address these issues, Haier claims that the new technology called the Self-Cleaning Technology that enables automatic cleaning of the evaporator by lowering its temperature by certain degrees and frosting the surface with 30 per cent increased condensed water. This removes the dirt on the evaporator through a strong cold expansion force generated by frosting, which is further washed away in defrosting. Besides this, for a cleaner air flow, the AC also comes with nano silver ion coating in the evaporator fins, which assures 99.9 per cent sterilisation rate.
The air conditioners come with added features like stabiliser free operation, four-way swings for an even air-flow, enhanced cooling efficiency. The company claims that the ACs come with parts made of 100 per cent anti-corrosion copper for a longer product life. Additionally, Haier will provide a 12-year warranty on the compressor on DC inverter series air conditioners.
The new line up of self-cleaning technology air conditioners by Haier is available in the Indian market starting at a price range of Rs 30,000 to Rs 60,000.
