The comprehensive air purifying function, “Flash streamer” is employed in an air conditioner for the first time*1. The powerful Flash streamer rapidly removes not only pollen and dust mites, but adjuvants like diesel soot and car exhaust that accompany allergens as well.
The Flash streamer’s electrical discharge delivers an oxidative decomposition speed over 1,000 times that of conventional plasma (glow) discharge systems, while using the same electrical power. The rapid outflow of electrons strikes allergens and odour particles, breaking them down and eliminating them.
This function rapidly lowers the humidity within the room and keeps it low for two hours to eliminate residual moisture. It is very effective on humid days and during rainy weather.
Approximately once every two weeks after cooling and dehumidifying operation has finished for the day, the air conditioner automatically*2 expels internal moisture outdoors in order to dry itself out. This prevents it from emitting a mouldy smell when it starts to operate.
