With all of these buttons and icons to choose from, how can you decide the best way to run your system? You’ll want to achieve a balance of cooling temperatures without sending your electrical bill through the roof, after all.

That’s what makes Daikin units so great. There are so many different modes to choose from that you can optimize the unit to run the right way at the right time based on your needs. For example, you can set a sleep mode to shut down the unit overnight when the heat is less oppressive while ensuring that you maintain a minimum temperature just in case things start to heat up unexpectedly.

Making use of programming cycles on a daily basis is also a great way to get the most out of your system. For example, you can program the unit to turn on shortly before your family is expected to arrive home from a long day at the office or school.

What to do if your remote stops working

While Daikin systems, and their remotes, are designed to last, issues can arise from time to time. And since remotes are a high usage item, it’s possible you might encounter a remote that stops working.

The first thing to do is check the batteries in your remote. You can do this by sliding off the cover on the back of the remote itself and popping out the included battery. Try replacing it with a brand-new battery to confirm whether it was just a temporary power loss.

If that does the trick, fantastic. If not, try toggling the power on and off on your unit to reset the system. Then, make sure you are selecting the right and applicable options on the remote. For example, some fan settings may not be available in some modes.

Certain that it isn’t the batteries and it’s likely not user error causing your remote troubles? Then you might need a replacement. Sometimes the sensors in the remotes can go bad, causing them to lose communication with your system. If you have a second unit and remote, you can try using it with in place of the remote in question. If that works, it’s likely you’ll need your faulty remote replaced. For help with this, and to make sure you get the right remote for the right unit, call out to your local air con specialists for assistance.
