We have ranked Daikin as our top 5 AC brand in India right now. Let us take a look at some more prominent reasons for choosing this brand as your top choice.
The all-new intelligent eye with an infrared sensor detects the human movement. If the room is vacant, it will reduce the power consumption for greater efficiency. The air conditioning system returns to its normal operation after detecting the human presence in the room again. That means now you don’t need to worry about switching off the AC if you are leaving it for some time as it will automatically detect the presence or absence of human beings and adjust its temperature according to that.
Voltage fluctuations and power cuts are very normal in a country like India whether you live in urban areas or rural areas. These voltage fluctuations can harm your big electronic appliances including AC. But to prevent your fear, Daikin presents Stabilizer Inside function. Daikin Air-conditioners are able to perform efficiently without getting damaged. The step-up & step down the function of inside stabilizers helps in maintaining the required voltage, therefore, protecting your AC from any harm due to electricity variations.
Inverter technology is the best alternative to conventional non-inverter ACs that uses more energy. Non-inverter ACs use the mechanism of continues starting and stopping of the compressor according to the temperature range required. This process consumes more power and thus less energy saving. Whereas in inverter ac, the compressor adjusts its speed without repeatedly getting switch on and off which saves energy and provides you the comfort of uniform cooling.
Benefits of inverter technology in an ac:
- Energy Saving
- Quick cooling
Technology and Innovation are the core mantras of Daikin. They have a long list of latest technologies used in their air conditioning systems.
Variable Refrigerant Flow is an HVAC innovative technology developed by Daikin Industries. VRF technology lets individual indoor elements to cool or heat when demanded, whereas the breaker loading benefits out of the interior heating retrieval. As a result, your AC uses electricity better and provides optimal cooling.
Coanda Airflow Technology
Now you can feel the best ac experience with Daikin’s Coanda Airflow Technology. This feature provides uniform cooling in every corner of the room.
In this mode, the circulation of cool air is done in up and down motion that protects the direct hit of the air on the person. Therefore, as the cooling air is streamed in an upward direction, it ensures excellent cooling in the whole room.
Streamer Discharge Technology
“Streamer Discharge” is a type of plasma discharge in which high-speed electrons capable of oxidative decomposition are generated.
The technology ensures you breathe pure air “Streamer Discharge” technology removes all the hazardous bacteria and chemicals from your room. Learn more about Streamer Discharge technology.
Power Chill Operation
Daikin AC has excellent cooling technology. Its power chill mode allows the AC to cool down the whole room in just a few minutes by providing the respite from this scorching summer. This mode is very useful in case of extremely hot days.
Daikin ACs are also equipped with quiet operation technology that offers sound and comfortable sleep. These days, where most units produce less than 35dB of noise, some of the Daikin split systems provide a rating as low as 19dB. This super silent machine is a perfect solution for your restless nights of sleep.
Savings is one of the most important aspects to be considered before buying any AC. Saving will directly depend upon the efficiency of your ac. Better efficiency means lower consumption of energy with higher cooling. Daikin has some features that increase its efficiency:
- Uses inverter technology (saves 20-30% energy)
- Econo Mode: This mode provides efficient operation by limiting the maximum power consumption.
- Uses better refrigerant i.e. R32 (green refrigerant that saves 5-10% energy)
- Uses a copper condenser coil (saves 5% energy)
If we are talking about savings, never forget to check the value of the ISEER of your product before buying. In simple words, the higher the value of ISEER, the higher will be your savings. For a 1.5 ton 5 star rated JTKJ50TV Daikin AC which consumes annual energy of 744 units, the value of ISEER is 5.2 that means low electricity bill and big savings.
Now you can easily report the error to your Daikin authorized service center for a quick resolution. Their support includes installation, after-sale service, warranty and free services. Let’s take a sneak peek of it:
