What to pay attention to?

After reviewing the presented rating of Daikin brand split systems, it’s useful to know the general features and characteristics of these air conditioners, which you should pay attention to when choosing.

# 1 - name encoding

Part of the product information can be obtained from the alphanumeric encoding contained in the product name.

Daikin Model Encoding
Using the example of the FTXZ25N model located on the stand and described above, you can get information about the purpose of the air conditioner indoor unit, its type, price segment, series, etc.

Having decrypted the alphanumeric encoding of the model FTXZ25N, you can get the following information:

  • F - appointment indoor unit air conditioner (single and in mult-system);
  • T —Type wall;
  • X - inverter;
  • Z - premium segment Ururu Sarara (R32);
  • 25 - rounded blowing power in kW × 10;
  • N - series.

Other models are found in the models indicated in our rating. So, for example, the first letter AND means - the internal block in the segment of mass sales; third letter Y - non-inverter type of product; fourth letter N - budget class Z - high class.

# 2 - build country

Daikin does not supply air conditioners made in China.

Daikin manufacturing countries
All series of split systems are assembled in Europe, the Czech Republic, Thailand or Japan, with the exception of two lines of the budget option FTXN-L and FTYN-L, which are produced in Malaysia

Despite the fact that the company is guaranteed to be responsible for the quality of the models assembled in any of these countries, it is useful to know that the supply and demand rating indicates the leadership of the Czech and Japanese assembly Daikin climate technology, followed by Thailand and Malaysia.

# 3 - energy efficiency of an air conditioner

It is important to take into account the value of the energy efficiency coefficient, which is easy to calculate by the power indicators of the product.

Energy efficiency is defined as the ratio of net power to consumed. In cooling mode, it is marked with the letters E.E.R., when heated - C.O.P.

Example for calculating energy efficiency
The higher the power factors, the system is considered more productive, at lower energy costs, and this is essential (+)

Taking as an example the power values ​​indicated in the figure, we calculate the coefficients: E.E.R. = 2500: 775 = 3.2 W and C.O.P. = 2700: 770 = 3.5 watts.

# 4 - work system

The energy efficiency value of the air conditioner directly depends on the type of system: conventional or inverter. This is an important specification.

System without inverter stops its operation with access to the selected temperature value, and when it rises, the compressor starts again.

Comparison of characteristics of types of conditioners
The apparent profitability of the non-inverter is actually deceptive, since the unit is forced to work at full power to reach the set temperature. High starting currents also entail energy costs and, in addition, premature wear of equipment (+)

Inverter system during operation, smoothly reaches the desired performance, after which there is a decrease in speed (power). Keep in mind that 90% of the time from the air conditioner is not required to operate at rated power.

Such smart equipment as an inverter allows you to:

In addition, conventional systems are much louder. The reason for the noise in the air conditioner is the fans operating at rated power.

 Household noise levels in the apartment
One of the most important indicators for humans, which tend to opt for inverter systems, is their insignificant, in some models, barely audible noise, which is even lower than the quietest household sounds

In addition, in the inverter device, when the ventilation system is operating at low speeds, the noise is significantly reduced not only indoors, but also in the external module.

# 5 - motion detector

Applying new technological developments, Daikin equips its models with an original and useful function of independently activating cooling or heating modes.

 Smart Eye Motion Sensor
A real-time motion detector monitors the room and gives a command to turn on the system when people are detected in it. Such tracking can cover not one but several zones, and the air flow is directed exactly to the place where people are

If there is no movement in the room for some time, the sensor switches off the device again. Having this feature is especially useful for children's rooms.

# 6 - additional features

The FTXR Series has unique features for taking air in and supplying it to a room, already in a cleaned and moistened state.

Installation with minimal block removal
When buying a product with forced ventilation, it is recommended to consider the possibility of installing indoor and outdoor modules with a minimum length of communication between them. The longer the pipe supplying fresh air, the more difficult it is for the system to draw it in, and therefore the power of the device will drop

In addition to ventilation, in models with this functionality there is a useful option for air drying - Ururu, which allows, without lowering the temperature and the risk of hypothermia, to eliminate the effect of the “steam room”, while maintaining a comfortable humidity indicator in the apartment – 40-60%.

A function Sarara It drains the microclimate in the room by absorbing moisture from the street air and supplying it to the indoor unit.
