Johnson Controls-Hitachi Air Conditioning globally launches the Hitachi smart residential air conditioner series named airHome, equipped with a variety of smart and intuitive functions that will help users maintain a comfortable indoor environment while improving indoor air quality (IAQ) as well as saving energy. The first model of the airHome series will first be available throughout Europe starting with France this April and later becoming available in Asia.

airHome is equipped with the FrostWash function to keep the heat exchanger in a cleaner condition, providing a more comfortable indoor environment. FrostWash is an automatic self-cleaning feature that freezes the heat exchanger down to -15°C to trap pollutants and dust in ice, which then melts to flush them away. This leaves the unit cleaner and dramatically reduces the possibility of pollutants being spread from the AC unit across the room. Tests have shown that systems with FrostWash are three times better at maintaining airflow performance than those without this technology. With this technology, users can enjoy the benefits of airHome with easy maintenance.

The following features will be available depending on the series:

  • airHome’s Smart Eco function, which detects the human presence and absence and adjusts the operation to decrease energy waste.
  • FrostWash, which cleans the heat exchanger to prevent a reduction in air flow for better performance and the indoor air quality.
  • Customers can comfortably set their room to a cooler temperature while sleeping knowing that SleepSense will detect their sleep and automatically adjust the temperature to prevent the room from getting too cold which contributes to sleep quality.
  • Customers can also rely on the airCloud Home smartphone app to set up location awareness and temperature profiles to detect when users are on their way home to automatically adjust the temperature before their arrival.
  • airHome is equipped with up to four different air purification technologies against pollutants, viruses, allergens, bacteria, and odors depending on the model. Users can rely on airHome’s purification technologies in its 99.9% control of SARS-CoV, up to 99.0% control on bacteria, up to 86.0% control on odors, and up to 97.1% control on allergens. While switched off, airHome’s mold guard function automatically blows air through internal components to prevent the build-up of odor-causing molds.
  • Safeguard system preventing extreme weather conditions and unreliable power source, contributing to longer product life.
  • Installer’s will also benefit from the new airHome series’ improved features for installation. All new service menus for each servicing are provided through the remote control.
