Not really a question but a statement on reviews.
The accuracy of ratings of a particular device is not helped by people complaining about installers or not receiving the device in time.
That is not a fault of unit, t's a problem with your installer. The device may be very good.
Rate the installer on google or somewhere else, not the device. Thank you.
Is there a way to reduce the outdoor unit sound?
Looking for a WiFi controller and app for Daikin FDYQN160.
advise the total cooling capacity at the following setpoints :
Air on coil = 30°C DB / 22°C WB
Air on coil = 40°C
Is this model Daikin inverter FDYQN160 adequate for a 270sq.m. (29 square) 2 storey home?
What are the noise levels of the outdoor unit like? I'm thinking of getting the FDYQN160 but don't want it to be loud enough to bother the neighbours.
Our outdoor unit is situated directly outside our kitchen window and the sound from it has never really been a problem. It is certainly not loud. As we live in the country the unit faces out onto shrubbery and small trees so there are no hard surfaces to reflect sound (if you live in the city, for example, and neighbours are close and there are plenty of concrete walls, hard fences, etc). Even still, the two fans don't seem to make much sound.
I should also point out that the unit did break down in the first year and the problem was a faulty printed circuit board but it was replaced quickly and efficiently.
The whole system cools the house very well in out hot summers but is not so good at heating in the winter.
However, we are generally very happy with it and sound has never been a real problem.
Please advise the dimensions of this ceiling-mounted unit together with the external unit? Also the unit component weights.
For a 197sq meter house will these specs be sufficient?
Ken, I think it's best to ring the Daikin people or some other company and ask those sort of questions as there are guidelines as to size and capacity. Furthermore if its gas heating, for safety reasons as well, professional recommendation is important. I was told years ago that there is always some portion of unburnt gas which needs to escape from the room for health reasons.Hence over sized heater is contra indicated.
Ken I’m sorry I’m unable to answer your question as I think the best way to go about it is to get two installers to give a quote and see hat they both suggest this is the way I went about it and they both suggested 10kw and to play it safe I said I want to go to the next size which was 12.5kw and went with the guy I thought most confident with and as it turned out he was fantastic and I couldn’t be happier. In the first place I tried getting information from Daikin but they don’t give any recommendations as they said every situation is different. Hope this information is helpful Ken, good luck
