Salient Features:

  • 3D Cool Technology

The Whirlpool 3D Cool Purafresh, 1.5 Ton AC, is equipped with the revolutionary, proprietary 3D Cool Technology. All Air-conditioners in this range have three vents (on both the sides and the top of the indoor unit), that pull in hot air from all sides of the room, thereby ensuring quick and maximum cooling of your rooms.

In laboratory tests, air-conditioners fitted with the 3D Cool Technology showed 40% faster cooling* compared to other models.   

*Results shown are based on internal lab testing done on select models under specific conditions and may vary depending on the testing conditions.

  • Built-in Air Purifier

With increasing air pollution levels, this is one feature that is huge in demand right now. The Whirlpool 3D Cool Purafresh AC comes with a built-in air purifier that improves the quality of the indoor air by removing PM 0.3 pollutants, apart from providing cooling.

It effectively removes 98.6% air-borne pollutants^ and allergens.

  • IntelliSense Inverter Technology

The 3D Cool Purafresh AC uses advanced inverter technology to reduce power consumption. With a stabilizer free operation#, the AC adapts its power usage based on the current cooling requirements of the room. Additionally, the model operates at low noise levels up to 37dB, providing you with a calm, soothing cool environment to sleep and work.

# Applicable on voltage range of 150-264V

A Quick Look at the Working of the IntelliSense Inverter Technology

A compressor is the heart of any air-conditioner. In a non-inverter AC, the compressor varies between On and Off during the entire operation of the AC. When the room reaches the set temperature, the compressor is shut down and remains off till the temperature rises again. Once the room temperature goes beyond the set level, the compressor is turned on. This process is repeated in a cycle.

In an inverter AC, the compressor is not switched off at all. Consider the working of an inverter AC to the accelerator of a car. While driving a vehicle, when you sense that you are going beyond your comfortable speed limit, you don’t apply the brakes instantly. Instead, you ease your foot gradually of the pedal, so that the vehicle slows down automatically. The same is true with an inverter AC.

It adapts its speed load, based on the cooling requirements of the room, thereby reducing power consumption delivering energy wise savings up to Rs.43,000~

  • 6th Sense IntelliComfort Technology

Do you go to sleep feeling hot and wake up in the middle of the night feeling like your bed has turned into an igloo, worse still with body pain in the morning? Well, not with Whirlpool 3D Cool Inverter AC. The AC is powered by an intuitive micro-chip that senses the “real feel” temperature, based on the humidity levels and temperatures, to provide you with optimum ambient cooling.

When the onboard chip senses low humidity levels, it speeds up the fan speed to provide slower condensation with optimum cooling. On the other hand, when the room has high humidity levels, the chip lowers fan speed to provide faster condensation and faster cooling.

What more, the IntelliComfort Cooling Technology offers energy wise savings of up to 27%*
