Daikin is recognised as an expert in air conditioning. As specialists, air conditioning is all we do.
As one of Australia’s most trusted names in air conditioning, Daikin can be found in homes, offices, hotels and shops across Australia and around the world. Our commitment to quality can be seen in our investment in research and development, and the establishment of our own world-class Australian manufacturing facility.
Buying an air conditioning system is an investment for the future, so it pays to look beyond the initial purchase price. Whether you’re looking for split, multi-split or ducted air conditioning it’s important to consider ongoing running costs, servicing, parts, and the air conditioner’s operating life. Daikin air conditioners offer superior quality, durability and energy efficiency, so you can climate control your home or business more effectively over the long term.
Daikin’s Split System Air Conditioning is approved by the National Asthma Council Australia’s Sensitive Choice® program and is the only Split System Air Conditioning System that carries the blue butterfly symbol.
