Mitsubishi is a pioneer in the air conditioning industry. Considering Mitsubishi’s first product was the electric fan in 1920, Mitsubishi has years of experience in environmental cooling technology. They have managed to establish their position in the market as one of the most reliable air conditioner brands available.

Mitsubishi air conditioners are known to have quick and efficient cooling systems. Their air conditioners are able to cool a room to an ambient temperature in just 5 -7 minutes, which is the fastest amongst all other air conditioners. This is mainly due to Mitsubishi’s proprietary technology, allowing for their air conditioners to produce a constant and stable airflow. This in turn cools the room evenly without causing a draft, which can happen with many other air conditioners and will result in uneven cooling of a room. 

Despite their superior cooling ability, Mitsubishi air conditioners are most known for how quiet they are. Not only can it cool a room quickly and evenly, but Mitsubishi’s air conditioners also have compressors that work noise-free. As a result, many public installations such as halls and hospitals prefer to use Mitsubishi’s air conditioner system.

Daikin Aircon 

Like Mitsubishi, Daikin is also one of the pioneers in the refrigeration and air conditioning business. Currently, they are the world’s second-largest aircon manufacturer, just behind Mitsubishi. Daikin aircon units are known for their durability and quality. All Daikin products were built with the concept of durability in mind. Daikin air conditioners have a long service life and cause fewer problems compared to any other air conditioner brand.

From the design of the air conditioning unit to its manufacturing, Daikin uses state of the art technology and materials to construct and design their air conditioning units. As a result of their quality-focused design, Daikin has won numerous awards in the industry. 

However, Daikin air conditioners have a very unique feature – low energy consumption. Daikin air conditioners are the most energy-efficient air conditioners in the market. This means that less electricity is used to provide an optimum cooling effect, allowing its users to save on electricity bills, which is a concern to many. 

Which brand of air conditioners should I choose?

Since both brands have slightly different selling points, you should first consider what is your priority when buying a new air conditioning unit. Most users will take into account comfort and cost.
