A lack of regular maintenance will lead to a build-up of dust on the filters and cooling coil, reducing the cooling efficiency of your Daikin aircon. This may mean you need to turn your aircon to a lower temperature to get the same cooling that you used to. Neglecting maintenance can lead to increased contaminants in the water tray and drain pipe, which can cause water leakage issues.
Daikin air filters have an anti-fungal property that prevents mould growth. The filters generally last a long time, and they can be washed by you or by an aircon servicing specialist to remove built-up dust. If the filters become damaged due to dust accumulation if maintenance is not carried out routinely, they are generally inexpensive to replace.
This is an indicator that the filter is dirty and needs to be cleaned. After you have cleaned it, just press the filter button on the remote to reset the light.
An inverter is a type of aircon system produced by Daikin. They have very smart sensor controls to precisely control the temperature of the room. These systems can detect when people leave and enter the room, and adjust the cooling accordingly.
Ice buildup can generally be removed and prevented from reoccuring with a chemical wash or chemical overhaul. It is recommended that this is performed by a licensed aircon technician.
Yes. Daikin is one of the largest aircon brands in Singapore, and spare parts are readily available for most newer models.
Steam cleaning is only recommended for hospitals and commercial kitchens, as they may have special requirements with chemical use for cleaning. For residences and offices, chemical solution disinfects fan coils more thoroughly and the sanitisation is longer-lasting.
