Beat the Summer Heat with Samsung AR7000

Summer’s exasperating heat has caused too much of an inconvenience for Filipino families. The humidity has hindered them from going about their daily activities, leaving them tired, and irate due to the weather. Filipinos have tried many ways to beat the heat like hanging out at the malls or enjoying cold desserts like halo-halo. However, these are only quick-fix solutions that can lead to higher expenses without the family noticing it.

As a company focused on offering innovative solutions, Samsung Digital Appliances introduces the Samsung AR7000, designed to end the summer dilemma of every Filipino family.

Samsung AR7000 delivers powerful cooling through its triangle architecture. This ensures faster and corner-to-corner cooling in rooms. The improved width and angle of its outlet, extra v-blades, and bigger fans ensure that air is cooled and expelled faster and further compared to the usual air conditioner. It has also been designed from the ground up to be outstandingly efficient so that cool air reaches every corner of the room. With this, heat will definitely be eliminated from every spot in the house, making it a more comfortable haven for families even during summer.
