This feature helps your Hitachi air conditioners to cool larger areas in a short span of time by adjusting the flow of cool air in all directions.

Hot & Cold AC – A Real Air Conditioning

Until now, whenever you come across the term AC then the first thing that comes in your mind is chilled air thrown from the indoor unit. But have you ever thought of hot air coming out of your indoor unit during chilling winters? For winters we generally think of Room Heaters.  But Hitachi in their modern AC models has enabled it to condition your room at the desired temperature irrespective of the hot or cold temperature outside. Yes, these Hitachi split ACs can maintain the desired set temperature in your room be it’s hot or cold. These Hitachi hot and cold ACs has a wide operational temperature range of -15 degree to +52 degrees.

Auto Humid Control Feature

During high humidity season, ordinary ACs generally fail to deal with the moisture level leading to water leakages. As a result, ordinary ACs don’t only start consuming extra energy but also start overcooling your room which may lead to health hazards like cough and cold. The air conditioner of Hitachi took these issues seriously and so featured its ACs with auto humid control technology. The air conditioner of Hitachi is fed with temperature and humidity data of more than 100 cities. The inbuilt processor adjusts the functioning of Hitachi ACs based on real and fed data. The air conditioner of Hitachi automatically extracts humidity from the room however ordinary ACs do have the dry mode which needs to activated manually to do the same thing.

Power Cool / Supercool Mode

Your older ACs would have taken a long time to cool your room to a comfortable level when you switched it On. No doubt it’s a normal procedure, but it becomes really annoying when you come from outside preaching heat and then your AC again taking the same time to cool your room. Right? Thanks to Hitachi quick cool technologies that enable it to faster cool your room to a comfortable level even during preaching heat outside. The modern air conditioner of Hitachi is equipped with power cool mode which when enabled makes the fan run at full speed along with quick-start of the compressor enabling it to quickly cool your room in no time. Similarly, the Supercool mode in Hitachi windows ACs serves the same purpose.

iClean Technology

Stainless Steel Filter with iClean Technology

Filters play an important role in the efficiency of your AC. The indoor air passes through the filters where the dust particles get stuck inside the filter while the clean air passes through to pass through the AC’s coils. Over prolonged usage, these filters tend to choke due to accumulation of dust on them and that’s why we shall always clean our AC’s filter once a week for best-operating results. According to test results, if you run your AC for 6 months without cleaning its filters, then it may reduce the cooling capacity of your AC by up to 50%. Now in today’s hectic life when most of us have limited time for our family, we rarely able to clean our AC’s filters every Sunday. So, in order to deal with the situation, the Hitachi AC engineers came up with iClean technology in their latest models. In this technology, an innovative brushing mechanism is there which brushes out accumulated dust on the stainless-steel filter automatically. A dust box collects all the dust from the brush to ensure that it doesn’t go back to your room. The whole process starts automatically and ends in 5-7 minutes.

As stated earlier, Hitachi has provided with stainless steel filters for long life. The stainless-steel apart too long life also improves indoor air quality by inhibiting the bacterial and fungal growth on the filter. Some of the premium ACs of Hitachi also comes equipped with a Nano-titanium filter that deodorizes the indoor air.

Copper Condenser with Anti-Corrosive Fin

Most of the ACs of Hitachi comes fitted with 100% copper tubing inside there indoor and outdoor units. The copper condenser has a higher heat transfer rate and low maintenance cost when compared to the conventional counterparts i.e. aluminum condenser. Some of the models like Toushi come with inner grooved copper ensuring quick and optimum refrigerant flow inside the tubes. This innovative use of copper tubes not only increases the durability but also the efficiency of the overall process. The outdoor heat exchanger in ACs of Hitachi comes equipped with anti-corrosive fins that are very helpful in a high humid and saline atmosphere where corrosion is another challenge. These fins help ACs to extend the life of the outdoor units which may fail due to excessive corrosion.

Eco-friendly Refrigerants- R410

A refrigerant is a fluid that helps to transfer heat from inside the room to the outer atmosphere. The refrigerant undergoes phase changes inside the AC between liquid and gaseous state. Most of the Hitachi inverter ACs comes loaded with R-410 refrigerant which is a type of hydro-fluorocarbon (HFC) that is eco-friendlier and doesn’t contribute to ozone depletion. The ability of R-410 to absorb and release more heat also makes the system more efficient than its conventional counterpart. The R-410 refrigerant also has wider operating pressure range which leads to less stress on the compressors while operation hence increasing the expected life of the compressors.

All moving parts need proper lubrication for uninterrupted operation. The R-410 system uses synthetic oil as respect to the older counterparts which used to use mineral oil. Synthetic oil is more efficient with respect to mineral oil.

Stabilizer-Free Operation

Load shedding and power cuts are very common in India, especially if you are residing in distant villages and towns. Being a heavy appliance, ACs are one of the most vulnerable appliance in your home. Frequent power cuts and fluctuation can damage your AC’s compressor. Hitachi inverter ACs are equipped to handle such a crisis. These AC models come with stabilizer free operation which means you AC can run steadily in a permissible voltage range of 160V to 300V. Your AC will automatically switch off in case the input range is out of permissible limits.

Tropical Inverter Technology with DFET Technology

Until a few years back, ACs compressors used to have a single speed technology which means they used to either switch off when below desired temperature and switch on when above the desired temperature. But with the invention of inverter technology which has changed the whole world of ACs and energy efficiency that BEE has to recalibrate their star rating keeping in mind the presence of inverter ACs in the market.

In simple terms, Inverter ACs run continuously and change its speed based on demand. That means, when the room temperature is at a set temperature, the load of your Hitachi inverter AC reduces its load up to 50% hence reducing its energy consumption.  On the other hand, the non-inverter ACs used to switch off but when the compressor switches itself On when needed consumes almost 10 times more energy as respect to the energy consumed during ideal operation. Hitachi adds up to the inverter technology with there expandable tropical inverter technology and Dual Flow Expansion Technology (DFET) making more optimized performance from the Hitachi inverter compressors during peak operation. Expandable tropical inverter technology is specially designed for the Indian tropical climate. In fact, Hitachi sales more of there inverter ACs as compared to other non-inverter models which show that Hitachi inverter ACs are the preferred choice of Indian consumers. The technology uses the Seamless Cascade Vector DC Inverter compressor system which gives a better-optimized performance as compared to non-tropical compressors. To add up to this the DFET technology ensures optimum performance during part as well as full load operations. All these inbuilt technologies equip Hitachi inverter ACs to optimize performance even in extreme temperatures of 52 degrees.
