Daikin iSmileECO vs. iSmile Series - What are the differences?

Many customers who had walked into our Daikin Proshop x Poh Meng Engineering with this question in mind: "What is the difference between iSmileECO and iSmile Series?". We will bring you through all the salient enhancements that iSmileECO has as compared to iSmile!

As the name suggests, iSmileECO is more eco-friendly as it uses R32 Refrigerant that has zero impact on ozone layer depletion and Lower Global Warming Potential (GWP). The larger the GWP, the more that a given gas warms the Earth relative to the emissions of 1 ton of Carbon Dioxide. On the other hand, iSmile uses R410A Refrigerant, which consumes more refrigerant and is less eco-friendly.

In terms of energy savings, iSmileECO is in the lead with 5 Ticks in full line-up, that is, huge savings on the utility bills and huge comfort for you and your family. Although both smile co and iSmile are both 5 Ticks, iSmileECO does save more money for you:

Annual Energy Cost*








While there is no other apple-to-apple comparison besides iSmileECO's MKM50 and iSmile's MKS50, iSmileECO's MKM75 only has an annual energy cost of $576 as compared to iSmile's MKS65 that has a lower cooling capacity, but incurs $56 more annual energy cost. Likewise, iSmileECO's MKM85 has a higher cooling capacity and it incurs $23 lesser annual energy cost than that of iSmile's MKS80.

*The data for Annual Energy Cost shown in this article is from the official NEA's Energy Efficiency Rating for the respective condensers mentioned.

In terms of technology, both iSmileECO and iSmile Series are smart enough to allow users to control the air-conditioners through a mobile app. Gone were the days of rushing back home to switch of the air-conditioners if forgotten to do so or waiting for air-conditioners to cool the house when returning home perspiring.

We have heard from our customers that they no longer need the remote controller as they are able to control the air-conditioners more conveniently on their mobile phones! From now till 30 Jun 2022, customers can exchange their iSmileECO remote controllers for $50 NTUC Voucher each!
