Review Daikin ducted air conditioner
The Daikin company ranks amongst the best air conditioning companies in the world.
It specialises in heating, ventilation and air conditioning devices, including industrial, commercial and residential. Operating since 1924, Daikin has always been characterized by using the most cutting edge technology available so as to offer high-quality products.
Always being synonymous with quality, Daikin has moreover been pushing the sustainability and efficiency of their products in recent years.
The Daikin range of products is sold in more than 150 countries and have more than 90 production bases around the world, including Australia.
There is a huge range of air conditioners on offer, suiting the smallest home to the largest commercial project.
One example to illustrate the diverse range on offer would be the latest model designed for reduced spaces, boasting a compact casing to facilitate installation and make them much more flexible (models 140 and 160).
The Daikin philosophy balances the highest possible energy efficiency with uncompromised, effective cooling.
In addition to this low energy consumption and high cooling potential, Dailkins conditioners include a silent design that is highly sought after both residentially and commercially alike.
It should be noted that this company is the only one that has been backed by the Asthma Council: The National Asthma Council Australia is a not-for-profit organization working to improve health outcomes and quality of life for people with asthma.
The DC Fan motor on the indoor unit is designed to enable up to 15 different fan speed settings.
In addition, it includes a Predicted Mean Vote (PMV) Control: it measures the indoor and outdoor temperature and calculates the ideal room temperature, adjusting its operation automatically. It also includes an energy efficiency program to reduce energy consumption.
Other programs included are:
- Silent night mode.
- Mode to “dry” the humidity in the room.
- Powerful cooling/heating mode to reach the desired temperature more quickly.
- Automatic functions such as automatic restart when there is a power outage.
- Timed on / off.
For convenience, Daikin has an APP for smart devices that allows the air conditioning to be controlled from anywhere with an internet connection. There is moreover the capability to sync with common home assistants like Alexa or Google Home.
Whether you simply want to “pre-cool” your home before returning or would rather not wake up to an especially hot summer day, there are options that allow you to control your comfort remotely.
After Sales Service
Its good reputation for delivery and after-sales service must be highlighted. They care about ensuring that customers have comprehensive support after purchasing their air conditioners.
Daikin has reduced toxic emissions from various stages of manufacture and operation of its air conditioners. One example would be the reduction of fluorocarbon emissions that are produced in the manufacturing process.
The company has moreover developed SmartCoil technology, which enables its products to use 25% less refrigerant.
