5 things to keep in mind when buying an air conditioner
When investing in an air conditioning system, buying the right type, model and capacity is vital. Air conditioners have an important impact on your comfort and health at home. These tips will help you choose the right air conditioner for your space and needs so that you get the most out of your investment.
1. Year-round energy efficiency
All Daikin units cool homes with an energy efficiency rating up to A+++, the highest on the market, keeping your energy bill low. With our solutions, you’ll enjoy the perfect climate year-round in an energy-friendly way.
2. The right capacity
When choosing an air conditioning system, it is important to determine the required cooling capacity. A system with too little capacity can offer disappointing results, while a system that is overqualified will have a more powerful airflow than necessary, resulting in an unpleasant comfort. Figuring out the perfect capacity is a balancing act – but your Daikin installer could assist you in that.
3. Match your interior
Every home is unique. With its stylish air conditioning units and wide range of models, Daikin offers comfortable and energy-efficient solutions for every room.
Our wall mounted units (Ururu Sarara, Daikin Emura, Stylish, Perfera) fit perfectly into any interior, offer great comfort and some have even been awarded with the world’s most prestigious design awards.
Our floor standing units (like Perfera) fit perfectly under a windowsill or in a room where height is limited.
If you don't want to see your indoor unit at all, you can choose a concealed ceiling unit. This model is integrated into false ceilings or false walls so that only the outlet grilles are visible.
4. Take care of your outdoor unit
When installing an air conditioner with an outdoor unit, many people only pay attention to the indoor unit because it is most visible inside. But the location of the outdoor unit might be even more important, since it can have a huge impact on the proper functioning of the entire system. The outdoor unit is the heart of the air conditioning system, therefore it should not be forgotten. Make sure the air inlet and outlet are not obstructed by obstacles or leaves. Have a look at your unit before the start of summer and winter season to ensure its optimal operation.
5. Order your unit in time
Don't wait for the first hot day to order your air conditioning system. First of all, you won't be the only one to want a unit installed quickly and the agendas of authorised installers will be full. Secondly, it usually takes some time before the air conditioner of your choice can be delivered to you. The period between the order and the actual installation can take a few weeks.
To give an indication, the installation of an air conditioner itself usually one working day for one room. The exact installation time depends on the exact installation circumstances.
Order your unit in time and keep these tips in mind.
