Air Conditioning System Guide

Even if you live where temperatures are extreme, you’ll want both heating in winter and a cooling system in summer. With new climate records being set throughout Australia, choosing the right heating and cooling system will turn your home into an oasis of comfort.

Our advanced air conditioning technology and an array of smart features mean that you can enjoy much more than just heating and cooling. You have the ultimate in temperature control, quality air, cost savings and have a sleek contemporary design whichever system you choose.

Heating and Cooling Systems – How do they work?

Most contemporary air conditioning systems have reverse cycle technology. This means they can heat and cool your home. In fact, every air conditioner in the Daikin range offers both heating and cooling options. This includes our Split System, Multi-Split and Ducted air conditioning systems, depending on whether you wish to control the temperature in just a few rooms or throughout your entire home.

Beautifully Warm in Winter

You’ll be surprised to know that even cold winter air contains usable heat that you can pump inside your home. Reverse-cycle technology absorbs this heat from the outside air to create a cosy atmosphere within. It’s easy to regulate so you enjoy the warmth you want and it’s more energy efficient than conventional heaters.

Living in our very cold states? Daikin air conditioners have you covered. Our automatic defrost cycle means even if it gets to minus 10ºC, you’ll still stay warm, as your Daikin effortlessly continues to heat your home to a pre-set temperature.

Perfectly Chilled in Summer

Likewise, a reverse cycle air conditioner absorbs heat from the inside air and disperses it outside, leaving your home the perfect chill-out zone.
Remember, cool air is heavier than warm. So, when you’re looking for the ideal position for your air conditioner, install it as close to the ceiling as possible. For cool air, point the louvres upward or horizontally and for warm air, direct the louvres down towards the people in the room.

Two Hot Tips to Keep You Cool

  • Sounds obvious – but only cool the rooms you need. If you have a ducted air conditioning system, you can use your zone settings. Or if you have another system, close doors between cooled and uncooled rooms to stop warm air seeping in. If one of your rooms is naturally very warm, or cool, you can switch to a fan-only setting to help save energy.
  • When you set your thermostat, remember that every 1 degree colder can cost up to 10% extra in energy. So don’t just set and forget the temperature at an icy level – outside temperatures vary throughout the day and so should your air conditioning.

What are the Benefits of Inverter Technology?

Inverter Technology is one of the most energy-efficient ways to heat and cool your home. It gently adjusts power so you reach your desired temperature faster and then maintains it, without fluctuations. Much more effective than a non-inverter system, Daikin’s advanced inverter compressor continually adjusts the heating or cooling output, depending on the temperature in the room.
You’ll not only enjoy beautifully consistent temperatures, inverter technology makes Daikin air conditioners more energy efficient, with longer life span, as there’s less wear and tear.

Small Details Make a Big Impact

Daikin air conditioners offer you an extensive range of features to take your heating and cooling experience to the next level.
Maybe you’ve just come in from a run and you need a blast of super cool air. Or perhaps you’re arriving home from a cold, rainy night out and you’d like to get cosy fast. Some Daikin Ducted Air Conditioning systems include a Quick Cool / Heat mode, which temporarily increases air conditioning power to rapidly reach the temperature you’d like, before they automatically revert to the usual comfortable room setting.

And here’s a breath of fresh air. If you’re an outdoors kind of person, Daikin’s US7 split system features a Natural Breeze Airflow mode. Which varies airflow and direction to simulate the sensation of a crisp, natural breeze.
