‘Cooling capacity’ is the measure of an air conditioning system’s ability to remove heat from a room, thus making the room ‘cooler’.

The reverse of this gives you ‘heating capacity’ (i.e. an air conditioner’s ability to remove heat from outside and transferring this into the room).

Capacity in these instances is always measured using the rated conditions specified in the official document: Australian/New Zealand Standard: Performance of electrical appliances – Air conditioners and heat pumps (also known as ‘AS/NZS 3823’).

Generally the unit used for this measurement is specified in Kilowatts (kW).

Every home is different, and choosing the right air conditioner will depend on many factors that a Daikin Specialist Dealer assesses during an on-site consultation.

Apart from the difference in features, capacity range and the appropriate location of the installation, in principle heating works better with a floor standing unit.

This is because the air is thrown out closer to floor level, reducing cold spots at your feet.

In the case of our Nexura range, the inclusion of a radiant panel further enhances its heating comfort, providing heating that is similar to a traditional warm radiator.

Ultimately, our experienced specialist dealers will ensure you make the best decision for the comfort of your home or business.

An •energy label is required for all •single phase (the standard method of distribution of electric power in lighting and heating), non-ducted air conditioners and provides consumers with information on the energy efficiency of a product.

The higher the star rating of an air conditioner, the more efficient the product is.

You should make sure an energy label is the same layout as the one on-screen to ensure it complies with current government requirements.

There are a few factors worth considering when installing a Daikin air conditioner’s outdoor unit.

Installing the outdoor unit in a safe, dry and well-ventilated area is advised. Making sure your outdoor unit is clear of trees or a dusty area (like a driveway) can further help you keep your air conditioner’s filters clean and less likely to get dirty or blocked.

Keeping the unit out of extended direct sunlight is also beneficial, as exposure to hours of the harsh Australian sun will mean your unit has to work much harder to combat its own internal temperature.

Finally, keep in mind also the location of your bedrooms and of course your neighbours, as the outdoor unit does make some noise when operating.

If you have any questions, ask your Daikin Specialist Dealer for more information or consult your installation manual on where best to place the outdoor unit.

As a general rule, you should clean your air conditioner filters within the indoor unit every two weeks. In more dusty or polluted environments you should clean your filters more regularly.

Cleaning your filters is the most important maintenance task you can do to care for your air conditioner.

Blocked filters can reduce a system’s efficiency significantly. Replacing a blocked-up filter with a clean one can lower your air conditioner’s energy consumption by anywhere from 5% to 15%.

For the Titanium Apatite Photocatalytic Air Purification Filter featured in many of Daikin’s air conditioners, cleaning it once every six months and replacing it once every three years is recommended.

The procedure to remove the ‘fascia’ (i.e. front panel) and access the filters of your indoor unit is found in the operation manual that comes with your Daikin air conditioner.

To clean a Daikin air filter, simply vacuum away any dust on the filter or wash the air filter with natural detergent thinned with lukewarm water, then allow the filter to dry outside in a shaded area.

In the case of a Titanium Apatite Photocatalytic Air Purification Filter, both vacuum away any dust and then soak the filter in lukewarm water for 10 to 15 minutes before allowing to dry outside in a shaded area.
