False advertising - dehumidification hardly works
We bought this particular unit because we needed an air conditioner that also functions as a dehumidifier. The advertising and product info was big on its "powerful dehumidification" function. Sadly that is a big lie. It just doesn't dehumidify at all on the "dry" setting. When I complained to Daikin I was told to only run it on "Dry Cooling". This sometimes works depending on the outside temperature. Mostly even this setting doesn't work. Also, much of the time we don't want to run the cooling function, just the dehumidifying function. We were...sold this expensive unit on the basis of false advertising. Don't pay the premium if you are doing so for its dehumidifying function. In addition the instructions around the dehumidifying function are so confusing that not even the support desk can tell me the best setting (hi, low, continuous, std).
Purchased in July 2019 at Ben Rafferty Air and Electrical.
Bought two, loved them then bought two more.
I started with two units, one in my lounge / dining area (3.5kW model) and one in the my office (2.5kW model) and then I bought two more because I was most impressed. The one in the lounge /dining kitchen area does the most work, it's basically heating half our house even with the other 3 units. It's worked tirelessly. The auto cleaning dust filters have stayed spick and span (I check them every so often) The fresh air is great when we cook an indian curry or other smelly food. The humidifier is tops in winter when it hasn't been raining but...it's cold. The info button lets us see how many kWh we've consumed, what the temperature is and what the humidity is. If the humidity is dipping below 50% then we turn the humidifier up. It may take a while but it eventually gets there. I know why this is the unit recommended for asthma sufferers, it's because the feel of the heat with the humidifier on is just so good. I recommend you do what we've done and get off gas, get yourself Some Daikin US7, A Sanden Hot water heat pump (or cheaper Istore if you're budget conscious) some Methven Showerheads and a really big solar system. And you can be free of gas and have very very low utility bills (They pay me all year round except for a couple of months of winter)
Love my Urura Sarara especially humidity control
I bought 5 Daikin US7 from Pure Electric in 2014 Humidity control is the best thing about it. My energy usage has dramatically dropped and we are comfortable all year.
Purchased in March 2014.
Questions & Answers
how much power does it use per hour? Pls state your answer for layman to understand. Thank you.
Have built a 12cubic metre music rehearsal room . It is completly air tight . Will the fresh air function on the US7 be sufficient for a room that size . It will 95% of the time have one occupant. Max 2 people but only for a short time. It is not used for recording so some noise is not a problem
Has anyone used the dehumidifier - does it work well and where does the moisture go to?
