S-Series Premium Wall Mount with FrostWash Technology

The new Hitachi ‘S’ Series range of split systems offers many innovative features, from enhanced energy efficiency, to airflow control and ultra-quiet operation. FrostWash addresses an issue that had long stumped the air conditioning industry – how to effectively and efficiently clean the inside of room air conditioning units. With FrostWash, a revolutionary new cleaning technology, you can depend on cleaner, fresher air all year round. When no motion is detected, the system cools the heat exchanger down to -15° C forming a thin layer of frost from the moisture within the air. While the frost is being formed, it lifts dust particles, mould and bacteria off the heat exchanger and traps it. Once an adequate layer of frost has been formed, the system then melts the ice, flushing away the trapped dust particles, mould and bacteria hygienically through the drain pan. The unit then thoroughly dries the surfaces inside the unit before resuming normal operation. A clean heat exchanger not only keeps your unit operating at optimal efficiency but also keeps the air in your home fresher and cleaner.
