Whirlpool’s 3D Cool Technology relies on 3-air-intake vents in the air conditioner that help with fast removal of hot air from the room. The company says the technology ensures uniform cooling with up to 12 meter of air thrown. It also gets support for Google Voice. It means you can control the AC using your Google Assistant-enabled smart speaker. Whirlpool says users will be able to switch it on, set the swing and change the temperature.

There is also an option to connect a smartphone to the AC through a WiFi network and control cooling through the Whirlpool app. The air conditioner also supports Intelli-convert with 8-in-1 modes. Users will be able to switch between different models with the touch of a button. These include Sleep Convert, Comfort Convert and Capacity Convert. The AC also supports PuraFresh technology that purifies the air from dust particles and pollutants.
The big question being how much energy does it consume when it is operational. The AC comes with IntelliSense technology, which Whirlpool claims will allow for lifetime savings up to Rs 65,000 on the electricity bill. “R-32 refrigerant in Whirlpool ACs means lesser emission of greenhouse gases and an exceptional energy efficient system. R-32 also has zero impact on the ozone layer, therefore it is friendly to the environment,” the company noted.
