Daikin has pioneered the new inverter split wall mounted unit, which can achieve energy reductions of up to 70%, compared to traditional split AC and window units.
The unit boasts an Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER) of 13.3 at T1 condition, making it the most energy efficient air conditioner of its type in the GCC market, the company said.
Daikin MEA product planning manager, Sana Hamdani commented: “Combining the power of Daikin’s inverters with the revolutionary R-32 refrigerant and our Intelligent Eye motion sensor technology, this inverter has been designed for optimum nominal and seasonal energy efficiency, in line with real life operating conditions in the Middle East, underlining Daikin’s serious commitment to the environment.
“The inverter AC constantly adjusts the compressor speed to precisely maintain the desired temperature, and contributes on reducing the energy consumption all year round, for a lower electricity bill.
"The smart technology utilises an intelligent advanced control that regulates precisely the compressor speed to constantly adjust delivered capacity to meet the desired room temperature. It also provides powerful cooling, quieter operation and an extended product lifetime.”
By using R-32 refrigerant, the Daikin inverter AC is able to maximise energy efficiency while minimising the global warming impact with zero ozone depletion potential and up to 80% less CO2 emission than R-410A.
Installed in new systems or retrofitted to existing systems, the split inverter combines the power of the Daikin inverter swing compressor – designed and patented by Daikin – and the R-32 refrigerant, for an energy bill reduction of 30 – 70% and lower use of refrigerants.
Across the GCC, infrastructure development projects, in addition to a steep rise in residential and indoor leisure projects, currently drive demand for new AC units, with the regional market projected to grow at a CAGR of 7.3% during 2017-2023.
Daikin MEA general manager, Tuna Gulenc, added: “As a part of our environmental commitment to society, we believe it is manufacturer’s duty to advise the market and develop sustainable solutions that have practical applications to reduce energy consumption and CO₂ emissions.
"People in Japan, Europe, China, Australia and other countries, already enjoy the benefits of inverter technology and here at Daikin MEA, we believe the Middle East will soon follow suit.
"The use of Inverter technology in HVAC units helps each citizen to contribute to the regional efforts to reduce environmental impact.
“In line with the evolving directives and strategies on sustainability as a core theme for future developments in the GCC, Daikin is committed at developing and introducing state of the art products and solutions, specifically designed for the region, achieving highest efficiencies, performances, and reliabilities. To put it simply, Daikin has set a new standard in the HVAC Industry.”
