There are many brands of air conditioners out there in the market. One of them, Daikin, is a Japan-based multinational corporation that is originally a chemical firm but has long since expanded to electronics specialization and industrial technologies development. Daikin has eight industrial and management divisions: Air Conditioning, Chemicals, Semiconductors, Transportation & Refrigeration Systems, Electronics, Hydraulic Fluids, Defense and After Sales. The company is one of leaders in the air conditioning industry, beginning with the fully-assembled Mifujirator in 1951. Together with industrial giantsFujitsu, Mitsubishi and others, Daikin is an active competitor in the market. It produces air conditioners for all purposes: home, commercial and industrial uses. The following is an overview of one of Daikin air conditioners, the FTXG series.
The Daikin FTXG series is wall-mounted type of air con for residential use. When it comes to visuals, its front panel look is very simple and stylish, and can fit in with any type of room without breaking the interior design. It is very ‘easy-on-the-eye’. Its Mat Crystal Panel is a clear plastic with a frosted surface, giving it an elegant appearance. The Daikin FTXG series is also noticeably thin, about 15 cm for the indoor unit, which adds more to the visual appeal.
Through the use of titanium apatite photo-catalytic air purifying filter, the Daikin FTXG eliminates bad odor, bacteria,virus and allergens in the air. It supplies clean, cool air. This air con also has a draft-prevention operation, deliveringhorizontally-positioned cool air during cooling; and vertically-positioned hot air during heating. Also called the comfortable mode, it delivers warmth directly to the feet. The Daikin FTXG, unlike most air cons, is also designed for a peaceful and quiet operation. The outdoor unit operates at 43 dB, almost like the sound of a quiet library, while the indoor unit operates at 27 dB, comparable to midnight in the suburbs.
