Daikin air conditioners are duct-free systems with a variety of features that enable highly efficient and quiet production of cool air.
What are the 10 Best Central Air Conditioners?
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 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.
