How to keep warm this winter with Air Conditioning

As we are starting to head in the colder months of the year, we are looking to be nice and warm at home. However, heating and cooling can be rather expensive, especially as it makes up around 40% of your household energy bill.  Whether you are building a new home or for existing homes there are many ways to reduce energy bills, improve comfort and help the environment. Appropriate insulation, solar panels and lo energy heating or cooling options, or zoning options, closing the curtains at night, will make a large difference.

There is no denying that having an air conditioner makes life so much more comfortable whether it is for heating or cooling. Even in the hottest days of summer and the coldest days of winter, having a reliable unit can ensure that you’re comfortable all year round. Ducted air conditioning can provide heating and cooling for an entire home by delivering warm or cool air to ducts positioned in various rooms. These can be zones, so that only certain areas are being conditioned. This reduces energy costs, as you only condition the rooms are are being used. Reverse cycle air conditioners are the most energy efficient type of electric heater.

If you have an old ducted reverse cycle air conditioning unit, there comes a time when your old trusty air conditioner just doesn’t perform as well as it once did. Excessive noise, costly repairs, unusually high energy costs and uneven cooling/heating are some signs that your air conditioning unit might be on the way out.

INVERTER TECHNOLOGY
An advanced fan motor technology which allows the unit to operate more efficiently than other models. This technology enables the desired temperature to be reached faster, and steadily maintains the temperature without fluctuations. New Daikin ducted air conditioning features include: Daikin indoor units are equipped with a variable speed high efficiency DC fan motor. By utilising high power permanent magnets instead of the induced magnetism of conventional AC motors, Daikin’s DC motor can deliver significantly higher motor efficiency.

DC INDOOR FAN MOTOR, Daikin indoor units are equipped with a variable speed high efficiency DC fan motor. By utilizing high power permanent magnets instead of the induced magnetism of conventional AC motors, Daikin’s DC motor can deliver significantly higher motor efficiency.
AUTOMATIC MODE CHANGEOVER automatically selects heating and cooling modes to suit thermostat settings and the current room temperature.

INTELLEGENT DEFROST, deice mode is a big topic every winter. During heating operation in low ambient temperature conditions front can form on the outdoor unit heat exchanger which can reduce your air conditioners performance. Daikin’s intelligent defrost system constantly monitors a range of system parameters and temperatures to determine the optimum time to commence a defrost operation for maximum performance in cold conditions.

One other benefit with a new Daikin ducted system would be the HOT START. Prior to heating, the indoor unit warms to a pre-set temperature before the fan switches on, ensuring only warm air is discharged and eliminates cold drafts.

All of these features, benefits and tricks will make sure you keep warm this winter.
