Samsung Electronics America Inc. produces floor-standing, wall and window mounted air conditioners and split system heat pumps. It is owned by Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd., a publicly-owned company headquartered in South Korea. In 2013, Samsung Electronics Co. earned gross revenues of $216 billion USD and net income of approximately $28 billion.
Samsung was founded in 1938 in Korea by Byung-Chull Lee. In 1980, Samsung Electronics began producing air conditioners. Four years later the company established its first manufacturing plant in the United States. In August 2014, Samsung Electronics purchased U.S. air conditioning firm Quietside LLC to help strengthen its "smart home" business.
Samsung offers floor-standing, wall-mounted and window air conditioners with electronic touch pads or mechanical dials, some of which are Energy Star-rated. Also among its offerings is a "digital variable multi" or DVM system that is designed to provide highly efficient multi-zone comfort. The company also boasts that some of its air conditioners, such as the AQV09KBBN wall-mount, include options that allow the unit to read a weather forecast and then recommend the most efficient operating mode.
The company also promotes a number of split heat pumps, either wall- or ceiling-mounted, including some options intended to be a decorative addition to any room. These systems can provide 2-, 3- or 4-zone heating.
