Is it time to replace your Ducted 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.

AVERAGE running costs

Our Research and Development team compared the average running costs of an old Daikin ducted system model and Daikin’s current Premium Inverter ducted system.

This comparison was based on delivering identical running times from both options and then calculating the running costs.

Electricity tariffs based on NSW Ausgrid / Origin Supply Domestic offers in July 2017. FDYQ140 selected to provide equivalent capacity to 2000 model FDY125. Rated values on FDY125FV1B / RY125KUY1 at 13.5kW adjusted by 4% to likely actual value of 12.96kW. Prior to the Minimum Energy Performance Standards (MEPS) regulations, there was some performance overstating by the market. Rated Capacity on FDYQ140LBV1 / RZQS140AV1 (inverter) was reduced to match capacity of 2000 model.

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.

  • DC INDOOR FAN MOTOR

    Daikin indoor units are equipped with a variable speed high efficiency DC fan motor. By utilising high power permanent magnets instead of the induced magnetism of conventional AC motors, Daikin’s DC motor can deliver significantly higher motor efficiency.

  • AUTOMATIC MODE CHANGEOVER

    Automatically selects heating and cooling modes to suit thermostat settings and the current room temperature.

  • PREDICTED MEAN VOTE (PMV) CONTROL

    Measures the indoor and outdoor temperatures to calculate the ideal room temperature and gently adjusts it for optimum balance between efficiency and comfort.

  • TEMPERATURE LIMIT OPERATIONS

    Lets you pre-define the temperature range for both heating and cooling to reduce energy consumption.

  • HOME LEAVE

    Ideal for cold climates, when activated, home leave turns your air conditioner on automatically when room temperatures drop below 10°C, keeping your home at or above 10°C.

What's more... you'll also enjoy all these other benefits with a Daikin.

  • NIGHT QUIET MODE

    Outdoor unit noise is automatically reduced by 3 dB when outdoor temperatures fall more than 6°C from the day’s maximum (set during installation).

  • INTELLIGENT DEFROST

    During heating operation in low ambient temperature conditions, frost can form on the outdoor unit heat exchanger which can reduce your air conditioners performance. Daikin’s intelligent defrost system constantly monitors a range of system parameters and temperatures to determine the optimum time to commence a defrost operation for maximum performance in cold conditions.

  • 24 HOUR ON/OFF TIMER

    Automatically selects heating and cooling modes to suit thermostat settings and the current room temperature.

  • HOT START

    Prior to heating, the indoor unit warms to a pre-set temperature before the fan switches on, ensuring only warm air is discharged and eliminates cold drafts.

  • QUICK COOL/HEAT - 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.

  • SMART PHONE CONTROL (Optional)

    Allows you to monitor and controlyour system from virtually anywhere.
