One of the leading aircon brands worldwide is Daikin. Daikin aircon systems cater to different cooling requirements and budgets of consumers. Due to their various models, it’s easy to be overwhelmed by the many options. Families and homeowners in Singapore might find themselves confused when deciding on how to choose the right Daikin Aircon for their homes. Therefore, let’s compare the Daikin iSmile Eco and the Daikin EZi series.
One of the advantages of the Daikin iSmile Eco Series is its energy efficiency, which was achieved through its overall design. The National Energy Authority (NEA) of Singapore rates the iSmile aircons with 5 ticks, which is the highest. On the other hand, high-capacity EZi aircons have a score of NEA 4 ticks, and 3 ticks for smaller-capacity units.
Aircon Unit Design
The number of units that can be connected to the outdoor units is also one of the main differences between the iSmile Eco series and the EZi Series aircon. However, a trouble-free operation can only be secured if the aircon installation is done by a professional and they are knowledgeable about the things to look out for during an aircon installation. The iSmile aircon can accommodate 5 wall-mounted units and 7-ducted units. Meanwhile, the EZi aircon can only accommodate 3 wall-mounted units without any ducted indoor units.
There are many reasons to install a Daikin aircon in Singapore. One of them is its smart features. Depending on when the unit was manufactured, the EZi series aircons may or may not have a built-in WiFi module for smart control. Thus, an additional WiFi module may be required. In comparison, all of the Daikin iSmile series aircon have this feature built-in. The user can just use their smartphone to set the temperature for each room depending on their preference.
Daikin aircons have many innovative features. Take note though that the iSmile models boast much more innovative features compared to the EZi aircon. For instance, the Daikin iSmile Series SYSTEM 3 MKS80TVMG/CTKS25TVMG X3 has an Intelligent Eye feature. This automatically detects if the room is vacant and adjusts the temperature for energy efficiency.
Daikin iSmile Eco-Series Is Much More Eco-Friendly
Even though both the Daikin EZi and iSmile Eco series use R32 refrigerant which is less likely to deplete the ozone layer, the iSmile Eco aircons are still much more eco-friendly. They require less energy for cooling the room and their smart features help to optimize the aircon for maximum energy efficiency. As such, rarely is a Daikin aircon not cold. Even though this refrigerant consumes less energy, it helps ensure that the aircon is almost always cool enough.
Daikin EZi Series Has Inverter Technology
Since it is now preferred to have inverter aircons over non-inverter aircons, the Daikin EZi series integrates an inverter that controls the compressor in the aircon. When the aircon reaches the required temperature, the inverter will automatically maintain that temperature. The compressor doesn’t have to be switched on and off repeatedly which greatly extends its lifespan. Additionally, an inverter aircon can help you save electricity.
R32 Multi-Split Aircon Systems
One of the reasons to install Daikin aircons in Singapore is their utilization of the R32 refrigerant. Both the iSmile Eco and EZi series aircons are using this refrigerant. The R32 refrigerant is a much more eco-friendly option than the R410A. Only a small amount of this refrigerant required for the aircon to function. Moreover, it can even be recycled.
Both the Daikin iSmile Eco Series and EZi Series have their benefits. However, there is a good reason why the iSmile series aircons are among Singapore’s top choices. The Daikin iSmile models can help prevent common aircon issues that would otherwise need servicing. Their features also far outweigh what the EZi series can offer. The iSmile’s built-in smart features like the Intelligent Eye prevents rapid energy consumption. Their use of R32 refrigerant has also earned them an 5 tick NEA rating. They can also connect to much more units as compared to Daikin EZi models which can only connect to 3 wall-mounted units.
