With an enhanced capacity of up to 100% Heating Capacity at 5°F/-15°C and 100% Cooling Capacity up to 104°F/40°C, this is a perfect single zone, 18,000 BTU mini split system for cold weather climates. Even if it is colder this system ensures year round comfort with temperature ranges for heating from -13°F up to 75°F (with optional heater drain pan) and low ambient cooling ranges from 14°F up to 115°F. Plus it is great for server rooms that may need to be kept cool even when it is cold outside with a cooling range is from -4°F to 115°F, (with optional wind baffle). Both low temperature operating ranges help to make this system a great solution as a primary heating and cooling source almost anywhere in the USA.
The FDMQ line of concealed ducted ceiling units are a medium static unit providing external pressures from 0.2" up to 0.6" w.c. on all models. This is changeable in 13 stages by the wired controller BRC1E73. A controller is not included and must be purchased separately. A wired controller, (BRC1E73), or DTST-ONE-ADA-A Daikin One+ is required and must be purchased separately to operate this unit. Optional WiFi controls such as AZAI60WSCDKA DKN WiFi Cloud adapter are also available to operate this unit.
The major advantage to the FDMQ Medium Static unit is the ability for longer duct runs giving the consumer numerous installation opportunities and the ease of implementing high MERV filters. The ducted ceiling system is designed to quietly blend into the ambiance of shops, restaurants, small offices or home environments. Daikin’s ducted unit is easily concealed in a ceiling in a non-distracting way.
When paired with the inverter, variable speed compressor (RXL18WMVJU9) in a single zone application, this system will deliver the capacity required and reduce energy consumption.
The slim profile of this unit, less than 10" high, allows for installation in tighter ceiling spaces than other ducted units.
