Features of a Daikin Alira X Split System 

Self-Diagnosis Function

With its perfect fusion of advanced purification, built in Wi-Fi, and mould-proof operation, this air conditioner is sure to provide you with the ultimate comfort that you need and deserve. Additionally, its self-diagnosis function ensures your unit is always operating at peak efficiency.

Perfect Fusion

The new R32 Alira X is a perfect blend of progressive design and superior energy performance and indoor air quality technology.

Advanced Purification

The advanced purification system in each model includes three layers of filtration: a prefilter for large particulates, an enzyme blue deodorising filter for odours, and Daikin’s Streamer technology for powerful oxidative decomposition of pollutants.

Built in Wi-Fi

The built-in Wi-Fi module provides a convenient connection to the Daikin Mobile Controller smartphone interface.

Mould-Proof Operations

Activates after cooling or dry operation to prevent the build-up of mould and odour. It is a good idea to keep the area well-ventilated during activation.

Intelligent Comfort

The 2-Area Intelligent Eye** is so clever, it can now either direct airflow towards you or away from you for draught free comfort. If the room is unoccupied the unit will automatically enable energy saving operations, ensuring you save on your energy bills.

Coanda Airflow

Coanda airflow is designed to stream air along the ceiling, delivering rapid cooling and even temperature distribution.

Streamer Technology used in Daikin Alira X Split System

Streamer Technology dainkin

The Alira X split system air conditioner is designed for installation in homes and businesses. The unit features several improved features, including a next-generation ODM (Ozone Depletion Meter), improved airflow design, sound-dampening design, dual-louver design, drainage design, humidity sensor, Wi-Fi connection, smart schedule function, follow me function, sleep mode function, and streamer technology.

Improved ODM Meter

The Alira X split system air conditioner features Daikin’s next-generation ODM (Ozone Depletion Meter) that monitors the amount of refrigerant used. It allows contractors to optimize their installation and improve field productivity. The new ODM is smaller, lighter, and easier to use than previous models, and provides more accurate readings.

Improved Airflow

The Alira X split system features an improved airflow design that delivers better cooling performance and energy efficiency. The unit’s indoor and outdoor coils are designed to work together to provide optimum airflow, while the air handler’s blower motor is specifically designed to move air more efficiently through the coil.

Improved Sound Levels

The Alira X split system features an improved sound-dampening design that reduces noise levels by up to 50%. The unit’s outdoor compressor is encased in a sound-dampening cabinet, and the air handler’s blower motor is specifically designed to reduce noise.

Redesigned Dual Louvres

The Alira X split system features a re-designed dual-louver, that provides better airflow and reduced noise levels.

Improved Drainage

The Alira X split system features an improved drainage design that prevents water from leaking into the unit’s internal components. The unit’s outdoor coil is designed to drain water away from the unit, and the air handler’s blower motor is specifically designed to reduce moisture build-up.

Humidity Sensor

The Alira X split system features a humidity sensor that automatically adjusts the unit’s fan speed to maintain comfortable indoor air quality. The sensor monitors the relative humidity in the room and adjusts the fan speed accordingly, helping to reduce energy usage.

Wi-Fi Connection

The Alira X split system can be controlled remotely via a Wi-Fi connection. The unit’s built-in Wi-Fi module allows it to connect to a home network, and the free Daikin Mobile Controller app can be used to control the unit from a smartphone or tablet.

Smart Schedule Function

The Alira X split system features a smart schedule function that automatically adjusts the unit’s settings based on the time of day. The function can be used to set different temperatures for different times of the day, and it will automatically adjust the settings to match the schedule.

Follow Me Function

The Alira X split system features a follow me function, that uses the unit’s built-in sensors to track the movements of people in the room. The function will automatically adjust the temperature settings to ensure everyone in the room is comfortable.

Sleep Mode Function

The Alira X split system features a sleep mode function that slowly decreases the temperature over time to help people fall asleep. The function can be programmed to turn off automatically after a specific amount of time, or it can be turned off manually.

Streamer Technology

Streamer Technology

The secret to high performance air purification is Daikin’s Streamer technology. This innovative technology features a high-power plasma discharge that generates high-speed electrons to decompose harmful substances. This powerful oxidative decomposition process continuously removes odours, bacteria, and indoor air pollutants, such as formaldehyde, for superior air purification.

The Alira X split system features Daikin’s streamer technology, which is designed to reduce the amount of ozone that is produced by the unit. The technology uses a plasma generator to create charged particles that break down ozone molecules into oxygen and nitrogen.

If you’re looking for an air conditioner that can offer you the best possible performance, the Daikin Alira X split system is a great choice.

How does the Daikin Alira X Split System work?

The Daikin Alira X Split System works by circulating cool or warm air around your home, depending on the season. In summer, it circulates cool air to keep your home cool and in winter, it circulates warm air to keep your home warm.

The system has a built-in thermostat that regulates the temperature of the air being circulated, so you can set it to the temperature you want and let it do its job.

The Alira X split system features an inverter compressor that adjusts cooling or heating capacity in response to changes in temperature.

This helps minimize energy consumption and ensures stable operation even in extreme conditions.

Additionally, the system features a self-cleaning function that helps prevent mould and bacteria growth.

The Daikin Alira X Split System is a great way to keep your home comfortable all year round!


The Alira X air conditioner has been designed with many energy saving features and components, such as the Econo Mode, Demand Response Enabling Device, Reluctance DC Motor and Swing Compressor. These features work together to help the air conditioner use less energy, saving you money on your monthly electricity bill.

Alira X also includes Daikin’s 2-Area Intelligent Eye technology which adjusts the set temperature by ±2°C to save energy when no occupants are detected in the room. This technology provides the added benefit of changing the direction of airflow for draught-free comfort.
