Which Daikin Air Conditioner is the right one for you?

When looking at buying and installing a Daikin air conditioner it can be sometimes overwhelming as there are many things to take into consideration.

We understand there can often be a lot of confusion and frustration, so to help you choose the right air conditioner for your needs we have put together a list of our top suggestions when it comes time to working out what might be the best fit for your home and lifestyle needs.

1. Budget

Budget is key and often the most important thing to consider.

Buying a Daikin air conditioner can be a costly investment, so having a budget in mind is important as it allows you to narrow down your options as to whether you can afford to invest in a ducted system or if a split system is your best choice.

Equally, it is important to give consideration as to how long you are planning to stay in your home. For example, if you are planning on moving in the near future installing a ducted system might not at first seem to be the most cost-effective option. However, on the other hand if you are selling your home, a potential buyer will always take into consideration the benefits and discreet comfort a ducted system will provide to everyday living and will see this as an advantageous feature when it comes to buying a home.

2. What Type of System

When looking at what type of Daikin air conditioner would be most suited to your needs it is helpful to ask yourself a few questions:

  1. How many rooms do you want to cool or heat?
  2. Is the flexibility of being able to individually control the climate in each room important?
  3. Do you have the room to install a ducted system or will a multi split system or single split system be your best option?

If you are looking to provide cooling and heating to just one room, then one of Daikin’s split system air conditioners can be ideal. Depending on the layout of your room and the available wall space, either a wall mounted split unit or a compact floor unit could well be the perfect option.

If you want to be able to air condition a number of rooms in your home, however don’t have enough ceiling or under floor space to install a ducted system, then a Daikin multi split system is very versatile and could be your best choice. With a single outdoor unit, multi systems offer the ability to connect between 2 to 5 indoor units to the one condenser allowing you to provide a temperature controlled climate to more than one room in your home. With the option of a variety of indoor fan coils including wall mounted, floor standing, bulkhead or ceiling cassette units, multi split systems are truly customisable to many residential situations.

If however, you are looking for a system that provides discreet air conditioning comfort for your home then a Daikin ducted system should be considered. A ducted system can be tailored to suit most new or existing homes and provides flexibility to heat and cool every room in your home with the ability to zone up to eight areas in your home from one single wall controller.

With all the flexible ducting, that distributes cool or warm air through air vents located throughout your home, as well as the indoor fan coil concealed in the ceiling space or under the floor, there can be no doubt that a Daikin ducted system provides the absolute ultimate in unobtrusive year round comfort with only the wall controller, the return air grille and air diffusers visible inside your home.

3. Energy Efficiency

Not all air conditioning units are created equal with some brands on the market truly draining your pockets when it comes to cost efficiency. One of the primary reasons we partner exclusively with Daikin is that we believe they are the most energy efficient and cost-effective machines on the market.

It is important to check the energy efficiency rating when selecting a split system for your home and the more stars on the energy label, the more energy efficient the system will be. In turn the more energy efficient an air conditioning system is, the less impact there will be on the environment while also saving you money.

Daikin’s inverter ducted systems takes energy efficiency to the next level. Daikin ducted systems are specifically designed and manufactured in Sydney to perform in Australian conditions. Engineered with a DC fan motor on the indoor fan motor with up to 15 different indoor fan settings, the Daikin range of ducted inverter systems showcases industry leading energy performance.

4. Size

It is also very important to choose a Daikin air conditioner that is appropriate to the size of the room, or home it is being installed in.

Choosing an undersized air conditioner will cause strain and prolonged wear and tear on the unit, while also making if very difficult to effectively heat or cool your home.

On the flip side an oversized machine will chew through power reducing overall cost efficiency and make your room or home uncomfortable by being either too cold or too warm. Also why should you pay extra for a system that is too large and is not going to do the best job of air conditioning your room or home?. It’s always important to remember when it comes to air conditioning that bigger isn’t always better.

As you can see choosing the appropriate sized Daikin air conditioner for your room or home is a vital consideration.

5. WiFi Connectivity

In today’s world where technology and ease of use is key, WiFi connectivity is a definite game changer.

Daikin’s ducted air conditioners as well as most of their split air conditioning systems have the ability to be operated remotely whether you are in or out of your home just by using the Daikin WiFi controller app on your smart phone or tablet device.

Imagine setting your Daikin air conditioner as you are leaving work and coming home to a perfectly cooled or cosy warm home after a long day at work. Or the luxury of being able to turn your air conditioner on or off from the comfort of your own bed.

6. Air Quality

If you suffer from asthma or allergies, it is also important to make sure you consider the quality of the air that is being recirculated into the room and why choosing a Daikin split system air conditioner could be the best decision for you.

All Daikin split system air conditioners are manufactured with an air-purifying filters and many are fitted with a more advanced Titanium Apatite Deodorising Air Purification filter which is designed to not only trap most microscopic airborne particles, but also assist to decompose odours, absorb and deactivate bacteria, while also controlling the humidity of the room.

Daikin split system air conditioners are the only nationally accredited split systems to receive approval by the National Asthma Council Australia to be included in their Sensitive Choice Program and if asthma, allergies or hay-fever are an issue in your home, consider Daikin split system air conditioners that carry the Blue Butterfly symbol.
