Daiking or Actron Air Conditioners?!?!

Depends which model you get. The older ESP Plus & Ultima's have a Copeland compressor which can be fairly noisy. It uses modulation to vary its' output as…

Cooling advice for a 40Sq house

Which is the best way to do it anyway.

Does this look right???

The effect on the efficiency will be marginal. Compared to the total area of the fancoil what % is damaged...? 2%...?
This would have been seen by the installer, but difficult…

Ceiling v floor ducts, which heats most efficiently?

We would certainly say you get better heating from floor vents. Ceiling ones will give you hot heads and cold feet. The heaters today don't produce much air by volume…

Daikin 8hp model FDYQN200 is it inverter ?

No. The 'standard' inverter model number is FDYQN200L. The 'premium' inverter model number is FDYQ200L. The latter costs $2k more.

It's not a proper inverter. It can only vary its' speed by fixed steps instead of being variable all the way through the range. The FDYQ200 is the comparable inverter…

Ducted A/C - Diffuser Grille - Round/Linear .. any good?

Linears in ceiling have a couple of issues. Plastic ones just look awful and everyone can tell they are plastic a mile off. Aluminium ones can show off the skills…

Ducted A/C - Diffuser Grille - Round/Linear .. any good?

Round ones are rubbish. Installers like them because they are easy and quick as you don't have to line anything up properly. But the air dispersion on heating is awful.…

Call...
ActronAir on 1300 522 722
Daikin on 1800 640 046
And ask each for 2 of their recommended dealers in your area.

Actron Air conditioning ducting ESP Series vs Daikin

Can't be done as Actron won't provide any part load data.

This is a huge red herring. There are so many variables in there it's not funny.

AirCon Controllers - MyAir Vs. Izone 310?

Really? The iZone is just a (not very good) copy of the MyAir isn't it...? From the blokes that left Advantage Air (MyAir manufacturer) and setup in 'competition'. I guess…

Actron Air conditioning ducting ESP Series vs Daikin

I don't think so. There are so many variations in the install it would make it quite difficult. And I wouldn't be paying too much attention to their reviews of…

Actron Air conditioning ducting ESP Series vs Daikin

You'd have to ask Emerson or Actron those questions I think...

5 years5 yearsIceManIceMan posted:
Actron Air conditioning ducting ESP Series vs Daikin

Emerson manufactures a scroll compressor that is capable of varying the refrigerant flow as per requirement. Instead of fixing the scrolls together permanently, the scrolls are allowed to move apart…

The Actron is home grown and well supported. Its' fancoil can vary its' speed according to the required airflow. Its' Copeland compressor…

Send me the serial number of the outdoor unit and I will find out who installed it and whether you have any warranty left.

How long has it been installed...? Got louder over time...? If it's still under warranty call the dealer out for a look...

There isn't... And they are both separate entities not owned by the same holding company.
