Samsung Unveils A-40% Energy Saving EHS Mono R290 at IFA 2023

Korea on September 1, 2023

Products unveiled efficient features for a more environmentally conscious user experience

Samsung Electronics unveiled the EHS Mono R290 heat pump at IFA 2023 in Berlin, Germany, one of the world’s largest consumer electronics and trade appliances trade show. The release of the EHS Mono R290 heat pump demonstrates Samsung’s efforts to promote an energy efficient and eco-conscious lifestyle.

As more and more consumers are considering the environmental impact of the products they use, they are factoring these considerations into their appliance purchasing decisions. Through the release of the EHS Mono R290, Samsung is helping to meet the needs of environmentally conscious consumers.

“This model is a technological achievement, especially in terms of the smart features and the energy efficiency they offer,” said Junhwa Lee, EVP and Head of the Customer Experience Team of the Digital Appliances Business at Samsung Electronics.

EHS MONO R290: Reliable Heating and Reduced Energy Costs

Samsung’s latest addition to its heat pump offering, the EHS Mono R290 uses R290 as a refrigerant which has a much lower Global Warming Potential (GWP) compared to other refrigerants.1

The EHS Mono R290 is able to consistently provide hot water of up to 75°C2 for domestic heating purposes. This can make it a suitable heating system replacement in older residential spaces that have been previously dependent on gas boilers for their heating needs.

Additionally, the EHS Mono R290 has an enlarged heat exchanger that is capable of transferring more heat at once compared to a conventional outdoor unit. Its heat transfer area is up to 39% larger.3 As a result, it boasts a reliable heating performance, enabling it to deliver a 100% heating performance in temperatures as low as -10°C.4

Another feature that may reduce energy consumption is AI Energy Mode. By learning a user’s usage patterns, it adjusts Domestic Hot Water (DHW) temperature and provides the user with the same level of heat without using as much energy.5

1 Global Warming Potential by refrigerant: R290 = 3, R32 = 675, R410A = 2088
2 Leaving water temperature from an outdoor unit is 75°C when the outdoor temperature is -10~35°C. Sanitary water leaving a Domestic Hot Water tank is 70°C when the outdoor temperature is -10~43°C. Results may vary depending on the actual usage conditions.
3 Based on Samsung’s measurements on an EHS Mono R290 (AE080CXYDGK/EU) model compared to a conventional outdoor unit (AE080RXYDGG/EU) with the same capacity.
4 Based on a leaving water temperature of 55°C.
5 Only available when using the AE2**CNWM*G/EU. Based on internal testing on the EHS with an integrated hydro unit (AE260RNWMGG/EU) and a conventional outdoor unit (AE140BXYDGG/EU) in normal usage conditions. Results may vary depending on the system configuration and installed models.
