How often do I clean my air filter?
A general indication is when the filter light flashes. But depending on the environment or the air purity, in a normal domestic situation once every season is adequate. In a commercial situation, once every month.
I’ve cleaned my air filter but the light won’t go off?
You will need to press the reset button. On wall splits and floor consoles you will need to remove the grille to find the reset button. With ducted, light commercial and commercial situations the reset button is on the controller.
Can I switch my air conditioner off at the powerpoint or at the fuse box?
It is OK to turn the power off, especially if you are away for long periods. Most units have a low wattage crankcase heater that keeps the compressor warm. If the compressor is cold, damage will occur at startup. If you turn off your air conditioner it must be turned on at least 12 hrs before use.
I have a ducted air conditioner and the air only comes out in part of the house?
Ducted systems can be designed so that only parts of the house (zones) can be air conditioned at a time. Check that the zone switch is turned on.
The unit won’t switch on and the green (or red) operation lamp is flashing?

During the heating cycle, a white mist is expelled from the outdoor fans?
During winter, most air conditioners defrost when the outdoor temperature is below 6°C. This mist is normal, it is only warm water vapour being expelled.
How can I save energy when using my Daikin air conditioner?
The following tips will ensure your Daikin air conditioner is both comfortable and economical all year round:

- Clean the air filter regularly.
- Check the energy star labels on your air conditioner – the more stars, the more energy efficient.
