Singapore’s humid climate makes it almost necessary for every house to have an air conditioning unit. Daikin Aircon and Mitsubishi Aircon are two of the best-selling aircon brands in Singapore

Daikin and Mitsubishi aircon offer varying properties which customers can choose from. You may consider the following factors discussed when choosing between Mitsubishi and Daikin Aircon.

 

How Durable are Mitsubishi and Daikin Aircon? 

Mitsubishi Electric has become recognized in the aircon industry since its establishment in 1870. The company has a lot of experience creating aircon units of the best quality. Through extensive research, Mitsubishi was able to create high-quality and long-lasting aircon products. Both Mitsubishi and Daikin provide warranties for all their air conditioning models. Despite this, these units might not last for a long time if not maintained well. 

 

Which Is More Energy Efficient? 

The energy used for an aircon makes for a large portion of the total electricity cost of an average Singaporean household. Hence, one of the most crucial factors to consider when buying an air conditioner is its energy efficiency. Mitsubishi aircons are said to be more energy efficient because of their latest inverter technology. Meanwhile, the inverter “variable speed” compressor found in Daikin aircon makes their unit efficient as well. 

The inverter adjusts frequency by checking the temperature settings. This allows the system to reduce energy consumption. With the use of a DC converter and a DC motor, Mitsubishi and Daikin are both at an advantage over other brands that use other AC motors.  They use pulse amplitude modulation (PAM) which helps boost power consumption. Up to 98% similarity is ensured by the inverter utilised. Because of this, Mitsubishi Aircon is the top energy-efficient air conditioner in Singapore. Ultimately, the two brands generally aim to cut their users’ energy bills. 

 

Which Is Easier to Maintain?

The air conditioner may become clogged with dust and dirt over time. The effectiveness and longevity of the air conditioner may suffer as a result. Energy costs will rise by roughly 45% if the air conditioner is not regularly maintained. Mitsubishi Electric Starmex FN (Inverter) – SYSTEM 3 AIRCON (MXY-3G28VA2 / MSXY-FN10VE X3) is designed to be low-maintenance. It is made with panels that are easy to remove so that the vents can be cleaned easily. The majority of dust will collect in the aircon vents. The panels are very simple to install after they have been cleaned. The heat exchanger, fan, and other air conditioning vents can also be simply cleaned without the use of additional tools.

The Daikin iSmile Series (Inverter) – SYSTEM 2 AIRCON (MKS50TVMG / CTKS25TVMG X2), on the other hand, must be cleaned regularly. However, it is not made for someone without cleaning expertise or training. To maintain a Daikin air conditioner, a professional may be required which raises maintenance costs.

Which Brand Has Reduced Noise Production?

Compressors are present in all air conditioners, and the airflow can produce different kinds of aircon noises. People in the room may find it difficult to focus as a result. Additionally, it may make them hard to sleep at night. In order to minimise this, the Mitsubishi Electric Starmex FN MXY-2G20VA2 / MSXY-FN10VE X2 has been carefully tuned. Because of the increased diameter of the fan blade, the fan speeds are reduced. There is also less air resistance moving downward. Additionally, it includes two rotating compressors that work to reduce noise and vibration. Daikin attempts to make their air conditioning as quiet as possible, but it typically is not as quiet as Mitsubishi.

Which Can Filter Air More Effectively?

Any air conditioning system pushes the same air into the area repeatedly. People living in the house may have allergies from poor air quality at home. The Mitsubishi Electric (Inverter) – SYSTEM 4 (MXY-4G38VA2 / MSXY-FN10VE X3 / MSXY-FN18VE) is specifically made with an anti-allergy enzyme and nano filters. This filter technology helps to effectively get rid of the bacteria. 

To get rid of the dangerous germs and mould, static electricity is used to charge the enzyme filter. Additionally, it contains enzymes that eradicate allergens. Its air purifier will deodorise the air to eliminate the bacteria. This filter can last for up to ten years and is simply removable for cleaning. Meanwhile, Daikin iSmile Series (Inverter) – SYSTEM 3 AIRCON (MKS80TVMG / CTKS25TVMG X3) is said to use standard filter technology that is much less effective.
