Air Conditioner: TCL FreshIN+ 2.0
TCL, a consumer electronics brand, launched what they call a ‘breathing’ air conditioning technology – TCL FreshIN+ 2.0.
Breathing in pure air is vital for good health. Respiratory issues can be affected by air that becomes stale and depleted of oxygen from leaving windows and doors closed for long periods of time. As the TCL FreshIN+ 2.0 not only supplies oxygen rich air from the outdoors, but also discharges polluted air, the only air being circulated internally is always fresh and clean.
- Circulates a large fresh air volume of 60 cubic meters/h and exhaust air volume of 30 cubic meters/h, meaning just one AC unit has the capacity to ventilate even large room spaces
- Four specialised modes for every environmental need
- The Exhaust Mode removes odours and the presence of harmful gases such as formaldehyde, which is particularly useful following the decoration of new houses and for quickly expelling potent smells emitted from household garbage and kitchen waste
- Fresh Air Mode allows for a constant supply of oxygen rich air to be circulating, even whilst the windows closed
- The Purification Mode helps to eliminate any harmful effects of pollution coming in from the outside
- Its internal circulation effectively expels fine particle matter (PM2.5) dust and bacteria, keeping the air quality inside your home at a healthy level
