Samsung appliances use AI-centered features to help users create sustainable homes by offering energy savings that exceed the highest industry rating
Samsung Electronics today announced how the company’s eco-conscious appliances deliver the ultimate energy savings at home by adding an additional 10% savings to the highest industry standard under the new European energy labeling system.1
“As we set our vision on becoming the No. 1 energy efficient appliance brand, we are excited to showcase the Samsung appliances and technologies that are making it possible,” said Hyesoon Yang, EVP and Head of Customer Experience of the Digital Appliances at Samsung Electronics. “Thanks to SmartThings Energy maximizing the features of Samsung appliances, users can enjoy the latest in appliance technologies while also being eco-conscious at home.”
No. 1 Energy Efficient Refrigerators Offer Advanced Cooling and Power Savings
When it comes to at-home sustainability, the kitchen is a key focus area because it houses large appliances that are perpetually running. Fresh food storage, for example, requires refrigerators to maintain continuous operation and, consequently, a consistent power draw.
Addressing this, Samsung’s refrigerators were designed to reduce energy consumption and carbon footprint while optimizing food storage. Samsung refrigerators are rated No. 1 in energy efficiency in their category and, in fact, provide an added 10% extra savings on top the current highest energy rating standard. Also, SmartThings Energy with AI Energy Mode helps intelligently reduce energy usage for refrigerators by up to 30%.2
SpaceMax™ technology allows for a spacious interior in refrigerators without adding bulk externally, using advanced high-urethane insulation technologies. As a result, more food can be stored in optimal temperatures without the need for more power.
In addition, innovative technologies such as Twin Cooling Plus™, CoolSelect+ Plus and Metal Cooling help quickly cool and keep temperatures matched to food types.
Twin Cooling technology optimizes and maintains refrigerator temperature and humidity in a very stable range within 0.5°C fluctuations. CoolSelect+ Plus allows for the flexibility of selecting from four different options inside compartments, ranging from freezer to cooling, meaning different foods are kept in matching condition without wasting energy lowering temperatures unnecessarily. In addition, once properly chilled, Metal Cooling helps keep the cold air inside for longer, minimizing the changes in food temperatures and ensuring that food stay fresh for longer while saving power.
Wash Clothes For Less With No. 1 Energy Savings, AI-Powered Washers
Samsung’s Bespoke AI™ Washers feature the latest in washing technologies providing users the quickest, most powerful laundry experience while also offering an extra 10% energy savings on top of the highest energy rating standard. Plus, thanks to AI Energy mode, the washers can cut energy usage by up to 70%3 placing them as No. 1 in energy savings in their category.
Adding to a sustainable laundry experience, SpaceMax™ technology provides a spacious 11-kilogram capacity so users can do larger but fewer loads of laundry, reducing the overall wash and dry cycles for a long term. SmartThings Energy with AI Energy Mode4 optimizes laundry cycles with technologies such as Ecobubble™, which cuts energy usage by delivering powerful cleaning with cold water5 without having to heat water.
Furthermore, AI Washer and Dryer uses advanced sensors to detect the weight and softness of the fabric in each load. This data is then analyzed, providing washing and drying cycles that are optimized and matched to the garments’ materials, saving the user both time and energy. The feature reduces the amount of water usage by 24% and also dispenses the correct amount of detergent, using the weight of the load to calculate the optimal supply.
Improve Home Comfort While Reducing Your Carbon Footprint With Samsung’s Eco Heating System
Offering a complete sustainable home package, Samsung’s Eco Heating Systems (EHS) provides floor heating and hot water while offering an extra 10% energy savings above the current highest standard. Using a new Scroll Compressor, the EHS compresses refrigerant at a much higher pressure than traditional heating units, while Flash Injection Technology and a large heat exchange area increase the flow of heat transference.
As sustainability becomes a critical factor in our daily lives, Samsung is constantly innovating to create home appliances that can help save energy and resources at home.
1 According to the European Energy Standard, the highest energy efficiency rating for home appliances is A for refrigerators and washing machines and A+++ for Eco Heating System.
2 Reduces energy usage by up to 15%* through AI algorithm which optimizes compressor speed and defrost cycle and saves an additional 15%** by adjusting the set temperature.
* Available for specific models from Dec 2022 through Wi-Fi update. Test results derived from comparing factory setting temperature with AI Energy mode to without AI Energy mode. Results may vary depending on the usage condition and pattern.
** Refrigerator will set the temperature to Fridge 5℃, Freezer -16℃ and it may affect the preservation period of food.
3 Based on internal testing on the WW11BBA049AB model in normal usage conditions. Results: Annual power consumption without AI Energy Mode = 88.7KWh. Annual power consumption with AI Energy Mode = 31.5KWh. Results may vary depending on the actual usage conditions.
4 Can be applied when the selected washing temperature is 20 ~ 40°C.
5 Tested in accordance with IEC 60456-2010 / 4kg Wash Load / Super Eco Wash cold (WF80F5E5U4W) vs. Cotton 40°C without Ecobubble™ (WF0702WKU). Individual results may vary.
