I have a Daikin, it’s fantastic. Its quiet, cost almost nothing to run in a well insulated area. you really need to control the dust or you will be cleaning out the coils on a regular basis. Mine is in a 550SQFT apartment attached to my shop and I still have to clean the coils regularly. This is my 2nd unit, my first unit was oversized and was too efficient. it would not run long enough to take the moisture out of the air and I was having a mold problem. Bigger is not better in South Ga. The Daikin is DC, it has a built in inverter and is variable capacity. The only problem I have is keeping it clean. The permanent filters are not very good so I keep a spray bottle of coil cleaner and spray was it down every week. I paid around $1,600 for it and installed it myself. 220V runs to the outside unit and the outside unit powers the inside unit. I used flex conduit that you would use for outside wiring for the drain. All you do is flair the ends copper for the refrigerant and tighten it down before opening up the release valve.
