Is it time to replace your Split System?

Is it time to replace your Split System?

There’s no denying that having an air conditioner makes life so much more comfortable when you’re battling the harsh Australian climate. Even in the hottest days of summer and the coldest days of winter, having a reliable unit can ensure that you’re comfortable all year round.

However, there comes a time when your old trusty air conditioner just doesn’t perform as well as it once did. Excessive noise, costly repairs, unusually high energy costs and uneven cooling/heating are signs that your air conditioning unit might be on the way out. When heating and cooling your home can amount up to 40% OF YOUR ANNUAL ENERGY BILL* you may want to consider replacing your old air conditioner.

Average Running Costs
Our Research and Development team compared the average running costs of an old Daikin split system model and a current Daikin split system model. This comparison was based on delivering identical running times from both options and then calculating the running costs.

The good news is... advances in Daikin's air conditioning technologies have greatly improved energy efficiency:

 

Inverter Technology
An advanced fan motor technology which allows the unit to operate more efficiently than other models. This technology enables the desired temperature to be reached faster, and steadily maintains the temperature without fluctuations.
Reluctance DC Motor
The motor utilises powerful neodymium magnets that are 10 times stronger than conventional ferrite magnets. By maximising torque, Daikin’s reluctance DC motor can boost efficiency by 20% higher than conventional motors.
Econo Mode
Helps reduce power consumption and decreases the load on the electrical circuit when multiple electrical devices are used simultaneously.
Standby Power Function
When the air conditioner is not in use, the standby power function turns off power supply to the outdoor unit and sets the indoor unit into standby mode, reducing energy consumption.
Intelligent Eye (available on some models)
An infrared sensor that detects human movement. If the room is unoccupied for more than 20 minutes, the system automatically changes to energy saving operation.

You'll also enjoy all these other benefits with a Daikin.

 

Better Air Quality
The only air conditioning brand to be recognised by the National Asthma Australia’s Sensitive Choice Program.
24 Hour On/Off Timer
The timer can be preset to start and stop at any time within a 24-hour period.
Comfort Mode
Guarantees draft-free operation by positioning the louvre downwards to drive cool air to the bottom of the room.
Powerful Mode
If you need to heat the room quickly, powerful mode maximises power for 20 minutes, before automatically returning the unit to the original setting.
