Diakin AC Review – Key Features
3D Coanda Airflow
A number of modern ACs have the feature of swing where the blades move just “up and down”. Daikin has successfully managed to take this to the very next level. All the modern air conditioners of Daikin, starting from FTKP series come with the function called 3D airflow that has both lateral and a vertical air movement. This way, the air gets blown in all directions and ensures even cooling of the room.
The 2 in 1 Air Conditioner
The most popular of the Daikin air conditioners are the Dual Comfort series as they provide the users with the 2 in 1 functionality. So, you can use cooling during hot summers and the heating option during the cold winter season. Even when the temperatures are as low as 4 degrees, you can use the heating operation to heat the room.
The Power Chill Mode
The power chill mode is the most loved feature of the Daikin ACs. When this feature is enabled, the room is cooled quickly, all thanks to the dual flaps provided. Most of the users vouch that the rooms is quite chilled within less than 20 minutes.
Free of Odor
We all are aware of the fact that air pollution has been a matter of concern in many cities and towns of India. Daikin air conditioners now come with a feature called “Streamer discharge technology” that uses 4 layer filters to provide air that is free from dust, pollutants and the odor causing bacteria. All you need to do is to keep the room closed when you are using the air conditioner as it ensures fast cooling and the air inside is fresh and free from dust.
All the air conditioners of Daikin use condensers that are 100% copper. Copper condensers ensure good heat transfer, are more durable and are also easy to maintain. The only downside is that copper is more expensive than aluminum.
The only disadvantage when it comes to Daikin 1 ton ACs is the non availability of the window AC. Most of the Indian families still prefer having a window AC when compared to Split AC. Also Daikin 1.5 don ACs has a little low operating temperatures of about 46 degrees which makes a little ineffective in cities where the temperature are pretty high in summers. So, it is important to check the operating temperatures before you go ahead and buy one.
