Advanced Humidification

A humidification unit in the outdoor unit draws moisture from outdoor air and distributes this indoors to make you feel warmer and more comfortable.

Powerful Dehumidification

Cleverly reduces humidity without changing the indoor temperature by intelligent capacity control and mixing of warmer room air with dehumidified air.

2-Stage Filtration

Outdoor unit removes carbon monoxides via a thermal catalyst. Indoor unit's flash streamer removes formaldehyde and allergens from the air.

Stale/mouldy smell from Daikin airconditioners

Had two Daikin airconditioners installed but after 10 months they started to give off a stale/wet sock odor when turned on. Had installers check it out and they used an aircon cleaner on coils but it only lasted a few days before smell came back again.

Saved us from the extreme weather!

We have now installed the Daikin ducted system for almost a year and I have to say we are very happy with it! It cools and heats quickly and the machine outside is fairly quiet. Having zoning saves on electricity and is more environmentally friendly too.

For your bedroom this is a must

It is such a pleasure to come home from a long day and go to bed in a room that’s cool & quiet. This unit’s night time mode is brilliant, I’m a light sleeper but have no problems with the unit being on above my head.
