Daikin challenges aircon market


    Daikin, the world’s leading air conditioning manufacturer, recently launched its newest entry level unit designed to challenge window-type air conditioning units typically used by many Filipinos.

    The D-Smart Room Aircon Inverter FTKQ-TVM Series, part of Daikin’s Eco King series, is a split-type air conditioner that has a lower suggested retail price versus other similar units in the market.

    Priced at P33,500 and outfitted with Daikin’s inverter, it promises cutting-edge comfort while also reducing electricity consumption.

    According to Daikin, the return on investment for the D-Smart line is less than two years versus window-type non-inverter.

    “Upfront cost has been one of the biggest considerations for consumers to choose window-type air conditioning units over split-types. At Daikin, we strive to lower that cost so that more people can enjoy the benefits of split-type units,” said Takayoshi Miki, President of Daikin Philippines.

    Beyond huge energy savings, Daikin’s split-type inverter air conditioners also offer protection from power surge with All Voltage Guard: Super PCB. The company has also offered comprehensive warranty coverage for these units, with a standard one-year warranty in parts and service, five-year warranty on compressor, and a 3-year warranty on PCB for the new D-Smart line.
