Split-Type Air Conditioners

Wall-, floor- or ceiling-mounted, Daikin’s split-type air conditioners are suitable for single-room applications. Humidifying and drying capabilities are available and/or a photocatalytic air purifying filter that cleans the air of viruses, bacteria and odors. For additional contaminant removal, air purifying filters can be used.

A reluctance DC motor for the compressor, DC motor for the fan, and swing compressor help these units achieve strong energy performance. The most efficient model, the Quaternity, has a SEER rating up to 26.1. Models are available that use the remotely controlled “Econo” mode as well as a “pulse amplitude modulation” control for more energy savings. These systems are designed to minimize sound production, and a 5-step fan is also available for more user-control over operational sound.

Multi-Split Type Air Conditioners

Daikin Central Air Conditioner

Daikin multi-split type air conditioners are available for use in up to eight rooms with a single outdoor unit. With the optional 5-room centralized controller, the operation of each unit can be set from one location and activated individually. The DC inverter and reluctance DC motor improve efficiency enabling the units to reach a SEER of up to 19.5. Daikin claims these systems can quickly reach desired temperatures and then monitor them for constant comfort. Available features include sound reduction measures such as the Night Quiet mode, a high-thrust mechanism and specialized blade tips. Anti-corrosion treatments and anti-rust materials protect the outdoor unit’s heat exchanger.

Care and Maintenance of Daikin Air Conditioners

Homeowners should change the filter regularly. Scheduled maintenance by an authorized Daikin dealer is recommended to keep the system operating smoothly.


Although warranties vary based on the individual product, many of Daikin’s air conditioners fall under a 5-year parts warranty and a 7-year warranty on the compressor. The consumer is able to purchase “Warranty Plus,” which offers additional coverage on labor and, depending on the product, on parts and compressors for 5 to 10 years.

"Only the best"

5.0 rating
Very Satisfied

I purchased a Daikin System, at first I was skeptical with being it's a brand I never heard of- The Installing ac company assured Daikin is the best and he backs the brand with a Peace if mind warranty – 12 yr warranty- 12 yr labor insurance not offered by other Brands -he even helped navigate to actual online websites and showed me the real reviews – showed me the savings and comfort the ac will bring into our lives – well it's been 7 months and the Daikin system is outstanding, it runs efficiently and very quiet – my electric Bill even dropped – my neighbor wants one now and he is going with the new fit – I highly recommend and they are made in the USA

Daikin Goodman split units do not hold freon and Daikin / Goodman does not care. Type in Daikin Lawsuits and read for yourself. Never buy their products

I work on facilities hvac maintenance crew responsible for about 40 buildings. These Daikin RTUs are stupid. Learning the controls is an issue, no one knows how to work on them. Tech support calls you back on restricted line hours after you leave job. Hard to find parts etc etc. Just junk.

Do not buy Daikin A/C. You will regret it. I thought I had done my due diligence in reading reviews about Daikin mini-splits, but after 9 months, one wall unit stopped working entirely and the other is noisy and prevents sleep without earplugs. Cost of the repairs on the unit has exceeded the cost of the unit, and it's still not fixed. Every time the repairman comes out, it costs $500-600 dollars. Yes, I'm pouring good money after bad and I don't know what to do about it. Don't make my mistake.
