BEE star rating: 5 star

Type: Inverter split

Area coverage: 150 to 180 square feet

This is top-of-the-line most premium ultimate air conditioner from Daikin. This Daikin AC 1.5-ton model has a BEE is star rating of 5. This air conditioner has an inverter based compressor. This is a  cooling only model. it can cover the rooms of up to 150 to 180 square feet easily.

As this is the top of the line series, this model is packed with many useful features. This is an inverter based model that means its compressor can run on variable speeds. This results in huge power saving also because of increased speed of compressor this model can cover a larger area compared to a standard 1.5-ton air conditioner.

Other useful features are patented steamer discharge, Coanda airflow, quiet operation, Intelligent eye and power chill feature. Streamer discharge reduces bad smell and unwanted viruses with the help of Plasma discharge which contains negative particles. This technology maintains good quality air inside the room. Coanda air flow helps in cooling the room uniformly by sending the air through the roof. Power chill operation runs the fan and the compressor at full speed for 20 minutes for faster and powerful cooling. This feature is very helpful in extreme heat conditions.

The cooling capacity of Daikin JTKJ50TV16U is 17100 BTU. This is Expendable up to maximum 20500 BTU. This will easily cover the area of up to 180 square feet. Power consumption is 1315 watts. Power consumption at maximum load is 1700 watts. These figures make it one of the most efficient and power saving air conditioner not only in Daikin but among all the brands.

ISEER is the most evolved method for measuring the efficiency of an air conditioner these days. It measures the energy efficiency of air conditioner Based on the weighted average of performance at different outside temperature based on Indian weather data. ISEER of this machine is 5.2 which is very high and makes it 5-star machine according to present BEE or Bureau of Energy Efficiency standards.

This is a very silent machine. The indoor unit sound level Is just 28 decibels at silent mode. The air conditioner is able to operate in the ambient temperature of up to 50-degree centigrade which is very good even in Indian summers. This machine uses environment-friendly and most efficient R32 refrigerant.

This air conditioner has everything. It is loaded with useful features, has one of the most energy efficient industry-leading power consumption figure, expendables cooling which is 15% to 20% more than a standard 1.5-ton air conditioner and premium Daikin reliability. If you can afford it this is perhaps the best 1.5-ton air conditioner from Daikin or any other brand for that matter.

Why Daikin AC?

State of the art manufacturing plant

Daikin manufacturing plant at Neemrana, Rajasthan is prepared for next level. It is spread over an area of 42,300 square meters and built with an investment of 10,299 mn.  it aims To create air conditioning solutions for the people that will improve the quality of their life. It is supported by a chain of production bases throughout the globe. It is appointed with latest technology state of the art equipment and is capable of producing technologically advanced and modern air conditioning products within a given frame of time.

Components that make a difference

Swing compressor

Swing compressor Rotate smoothly and decreases friction and vibration. It also helps in preventing the leakage of refrigerant gas during compression. These benefits result IN quiet and efficient operation.

DC inverter

An air conditioner that is equipped with DC motor is known as DC inverter. DC motor generates higher efficiency than AC motor. DC motor utilizes the power of magnets to attract and repel to generate rotation. A DC motor that is loaded with power neodymium magnets offer even greater efficiency.

DC motor for fan

DC motor help in fine rotation control which decreases energy consumption. The motor also helps in improving operational efficiency to a great degree.

Neodymium magnet

This type of magnet is roughly 10 times stronger than standard pregnant. In Daikin compressor Use of neodymium magnet enhances their performance. It also increases air conditioner’s frequency range.

Pioneer in inverter Technology

An inverter type air conditioner can vary the speed of its compressor i.e. it can increase or decrease the speed of its compressor according to the load put on it by the surrounding condition. Unlike a fixed speed compressor, if less cooling is required it decrease its speed which results in huge power saving. Also if surrounding temperature is high and more cooling is required it can increase its speed resulting in more powerful and faster cooling. A 1.5-ton inverter air conditioner Can work from .3 to 1.7 ton based on the cooling load. This also results in more uniform temperature control as there are no shutdown of the compressor but just the change in capacity to maintain a  more uniform temperature.

Dakin is the inventor of inverter technology in air conditioning. Daikin being The pioneer in inverted Technology produces superior inverter controlled air conditioners than any other brand.

The perfect refrigerant

Daikin has phased out all R22 models Instead it now uses environment-friendly and most efficient R32 refrigerant. This refrigerant will take care of our surrounding environment and will be the refrigerant of future. It has zero ozone depletion potential and only one-third of global warming potential compared to an R22 or R410a refrigerant.

It also has superior performance compared to R22 or R410a refrigerant. It has 15% more cooling compared to an R410a refrigerant. It also has better cooling at higher temperatures compared to the traditional refrigerants.

Superior service network

There are also some other premium air conditioner brands present in the market but in the end what makes the difference is Daikin ’s superior after sales and service network. Other bands which are technologically as advance as Daikin can not match it’s after sales and service network.
