Modern HVAC technology is more than a comfort or luxury. Sure, it’s nice to have the chill of mountain air or the warmth of beach-kissed sun in your home as an amenity to make your home its most comfortable. However, for many in dangerously sweltering hot or frigidly cold environments, their HVAC is a necessity against hypothermia and heat exhaustion. No matter whether HVAC is a luxury or necessity, consumers want the most efficient technology possible.
HVAC Today Does More Than Just Heat And Cool
Over the past decade, HVAC technology has evolved to offer all homes such indoor air and air quality for both necessity and luxury. Today, it continues to evolve to meet the multi-faceted demands of homeowners.
Heat pumps are a great example of how today’s HVAC systems are surpassing the expectation to merely function. Modern systems are getting smarter in how they operate to heat and cool. These HVAC components work with your desired/needed temperature settings to affordably maintain your heating or cooling throughout all the seasons.
Traditional non-inverter systems were some of the first models in this technology wave. While a significant advance over their predecessors, which were furnaces, they still weren’t as efficient as they could’ve been. Why?
Non-inverter models power off automatically as the set temperature is reached. In doing so, the home’s temperature naturally rises/falls, which then prompts the non-inverter system to kick back on. The result is short, inefficient cycles that cost the homeowner in temperature consistency and energy usage.
Meet The Daikin Fit System
The sleek Daikin Fit system was introduced to solve the above lack of efficiency by non-inverter models, and it has industry experts heated up with excitement.
This is an advanced heat pump technology designed to use a continuously-running inverter system. That may sound like a negative, but it’s actually how the system solves many of the most common complaints homeowners have with their traditional units.
Instead of shutting on and off as the setting temps are reached, this model simply adjusts the compressor speed to meet the home’s desired settings. The result is consistently maintained temperatures within the home. No more feeling too cold or too hot.
With Daikin Fit, the air is consistently, continually being filtered because the system is continually running at energy-conserving, low levels. By having air constantly pass through the coil to remove moisture, the home’s humidity level is also better controlled. No more muggy air.
Noise is a common consumer HVAC complaint. Noisy systems, such as those using non-inverter technology, are a disturbance to both the homeowner and surrounding neighbors. The Daikin Fit operates quietly. With operating levels as low as 55 DBA, which is similar to that of a modern refrigerator, the Daikin Fit’s operation all but goes unnoticed.
This is a system designed to fit, too. Traditional systems are mostly cube-shape, which can be cumbersome and not accommodate limited spaces. It’s another common complaint amongst homeowners and contractors. Daikin Fit has a compact design and side discharge cabinet. It’s ideal for locations with limited installation space. The versatility of the slim outdoor unit’s ability to be mounted on the wall or ground enables homeowners to make the most of their available space, and multi-story locations won’t even need a crane for installation.
Of course, the energy efficiency of Daikin Fit means energy savings for homeowners. The compressor is the system’s heart and most energy-consuming component. Traditional systems use either dual or single-speed compressors. Meanwhile, the Daikin Fit uses a revolutionary variable-speed compressor, or rather inverter. Think of an inverter like a vehicle’s cruise control. You have continuous heating and cooling with less fluctuations. And, after a period of interrupted use, you’re able to reach the set point of temperature quicker. The bottom line is Daikin Fit can offer around 30 percent energy savings over a non-inverter system.
