Daikin air conditioners are among the highest quality, most desirable HVAC systems on the market. The reputability of Daikin as a manufacturer and AC brand is appreciated by home and business owners around the country. In fact, it’s the world’s largest manufacturer of air conditioning and heating systems and has been expanding its global presence since being founded in 1924. Here, we’ll reveal the reasons why you should install a Daikin HVAC system.
A Company That Dominates the Industry
The company reported $7.5 billion in sales in FY21. It has production operations spread across the globe and includes leading brands such as Goodman, Amana, and AAF/Flanders (an air filter brand). Focused on state-of-the-art HVAC technologies for residential use, Daikin also serves the commercial market as well as industrial customers. It has set the standard for service and quality in the HVAC industry.
Commitment to Innovation
Daikin has paved the way in innovation and environmental sustainability. Not only are its HVAC systems energy efficient. The company has developed R-32 refrigerant that is more efficient, allows for lighter units, and has a lower environmental impact than R-410A. It’s also easier to clean, reuse, and recover than comparable refrigerants.
Other innovations include an inverter with a reluctance DC motor to cut energy use in half. It allows precise control of the motor’s speed to regulate temperature. A variable-speed compressor has been developed that provides heat in conditions as low as -13℉ and is highly economical, efficient, and durable.
Daikin continues to innovate with the goal of making air conditioners as efficient as possible. Variable-speed inverters allow the system to always run, as the motor can adapt to every change in demand. This reduces the amount of energy used to compensate for fluctuations in temperature. Improved energy efficiency can also significantly lower your energy bills, so less of your monthly budget is spent on air conditioning.
Superior Components and Design
Compared to traditional units, Daikin outdoor units, such as the Daikin FIT, are more compact. They have little impact on landscapes and can avoid having to lift a unit onto a roof. All-aluminum evaporator coils are more durable and are less likely to break down. Quietflex ducts are designed to reduce heat transfer and absorb noise, while the company’s air filters are among the most cost-effective in the industry.
Made in the USA
Although headquartered in Japan, Daikin’s largest manufacturing plant is located at the Daikin Texas Technology Park near Houston. The 4.1-million-square-foot facility opened in 2017 and is where Goodman brand products are now made. When opened, it was expected to have a multi-billion-dollar annual economic impact on the region and create thousands of jobs.
The company has offices and operations in New York, Kentucky, Illinois, South Carolina, and Washington, D.C. It is widely known for its consulting and technical support. In addition, Daikin has prepared comprehensive training programs in various regions to ensure installers are properly trained and customers are completely satisfied with its services.
Warranties vary with the equipment installed and their application. Daikin AC units are covered by an at least 6-year warranty. Considered one of the best in the industry, a Daikin warranty can cover parts for up to 12 years, system replacement for up to 12 years, and labor for up to 12 years. That’s a pretty good investment if the manufacturer doesn’t think the unit or a major component will fail within the first 12 years of installation.
