Daikin Mini Split Review

Daikin FTXC20B/RXC20B 2.0kW R32 
Heat Pump Low Inverter Wall Mounted System 


This is my review of the Daikin FTXC20B/RXC20B single split air conditioning system. Prices start from £1200 supplied and fitted.

At Custom Heating & Cooling we highly recommend Daikin air conditioning units to our customers as they are one of the leading suppliers of heating and cooling solutions for residential, commercial and industrial applications in the UK. Their product portfolio comprises a wide range of highly energy efficient climate control systems which can provide the right solution for any application and requirement. Perfect for installation in home or garden offices, bedrooms, larger or irregularly shaped living areas.

The FTXC20B/RXC20B setup may be their entry level unit for Daikin, but this system doesn’t hold any punches, it’s bursting with features, and looks just as good as the high end models, especially with the option of Wi-Fi control. 

It has seasonal efficiency values up to A++ in cooling

Its very quiet in operation at 20 dBA

By choosing R32 you can reduce the environmental impact of your AC system by 68% compared to an equivalent R-410A system. The higher energy efficiency of R32 also leads to lower running costs.

Econo mode: Decreases power consumption so that other appliances that need large power consumption can be used. This function is also energy saving

Indoor unit silent operation: “Silent” button on the remote control lowers the operation sound of the indoor unit by 3dB(A)

Air filter: Removes airborne dust particles to ensure a steady supply of clean air

The online controller (optional BRP069B45) can operate your indoor unit from any location in the world with a simple free app, via your local network or internet and enables you to keep an overview on your energy consumption.

Options of either the hand remote (BRC52B66)
or a fixed wall thermostat control (BRC073)
