Daikin Focuses On Saving Mother Earth With Zero Ozone Depleting R32 As Its Sole Refrigerant

In its quest to save mother earth, HVAC technology leader Daikin Airconditioning Philippines (DAP), a company at the forefront of reducing global warming, is on a mission to innovate, develop, and promote new products and technologies that will lead us to a more environmentally healthy world.

DAP is not wasting any time. Early implementation of its earth friendly business programs and product innovations is its key to further reduce future environmental damage. It does not end there, Daikin is commited to commercialize and disseminate its state-of-the-art technology to contribute to the world's effort to tackle the issue of global climate change.

Daikin's Environmental Action Plan 2020
The Daikin Group positions environmental protection as one of its most important management tasks. Based on DPH’s Fusion 20 strategic management plan, under the formulated Environmental Action Plan 2020, Daikin aims to decrease environmental impact throughout the value chain so that Daikin can achieve sustainable business growth and protect the environment. 

Under Daikin’s Environmental Action Plan 2020, Daikin is taking action based on three pillars: 
1.  Provide environmental friendly products and services. 
2.  Minimize environmental impact through manufacturing and other activities.
3.  Expand the Green Heart circle worldwide.

Since air conditioners emit a particularly large amount of CO2 during its lifecycle, Daikin is focusing on disseminating the use of energy-efficient air conditioners and air conditioners that use low-global-warming-potential refrigerants. By penetrating the global market, the Daikin group sold about 6.5Million of RAC units in 48 countries, and about 15 million units with R32 refrigerant sold. Estimated 27 million tons of CO2 emission reduced. By converting to R32, Daikin projected the reduction of global warming impact in 2030 by approximately 800 million tons of CO2.

R32 - Zero Ozone Depleting Potential and Low Global Warming Potential

Daikin has identified R32 as a very beneficial refrigerant for single and multi-split type air conditioners. R32 is the next-generation refrigerant that has highest cooling power, zero ozone depletion potential, and lowest global warming potential versus other refrigerants in the market. When looking for a new airconditioning for any application, Daikin believes that consumers should not only look for inverter, but consumers should look for R32 inverter. Daikin believes that the transition to R32 will help to meet both the HFC phase down schedule and the HCFC phase out schedule of the Montreal Protocol. Daikin is now in the process of further study to identify a suitable refrigerant for the other applications.

VRV X/A Series

Exceeding Boundaries with Innovative Energy Savings

The key to innovative energy saving is to increase efficiency during low-load operation. Using data gathered from actual operation, Daikin discovered that air conditioning systems operate at partial – half or less than of 80% of their annual operation period. This inspired Daikin to develop new technologies to enhance energy efficiency when operating only with few units in a multiple airconditioning system.

Utilizing these technologies, Daikin’s new VRV X and VRV A (Variable Refrigerant Volume) series raised the standards for energy efficiency. By fusing advanced software and hardware technologies, these greatly increased the energy savings during actual operation. 

Daikin's Newest Software Technology, The VRT Smart Control

This Variable Refrigerant Temperature (VRT) smart control, optimizes the compressor speed by calculating the required cooling for the entire system and optimal refrigerant temperature based on data sent by each airconditioning unit. With its air volume control, it reduces compressor load and the All-New VRV X minimizes operation loss. VRT control ensures energy savings and comfortable air conditioning to meet the needs of the consumers.

Daikin’s research and development team is continuously dedicated to improve the VRV system. Incorporating its new hardware technology, scroll compressor refrigerant leakage is minimized thus saving on operation loss or imminent system shut-down.

For easier installation, Automatic Refrigerant Charge Function automates the charging of the proper refrigerant amount and the closing of shut-off valves with just one press of the switch after pre-charging. Simplified installation eliminates excessive and insufficient refrigerant charge amount due to mistakes in calculation.

Daikin is one hundred percent driven to save mother earth. We all should too! On your next airconditioning purchase, consider a Daikin.
