The heat during Australian Summers can be extreme, and airconditioning in homes and commercial spaces is an absolute must. Choosing to install an air conditioning system in your home or commercial space is a big investment, you want something that will suit your space and needs, and will not want to need to replace it for a long time. Choosing the right type of system can be a difficult task, and it can be easy to get lost in all of the available options. We have compiled the guide below of the most common air conditioning systems, and explained their main uses so hopefully you can make an informed choice!
Ducted Air Conditioning
Ducted air conditioning units are a very popular choice. They are a series of ducts that are hidden away that deliver air into the house through vents, meaning they are a very discrete option. They work well in new builds as they can be added during the construction process, but can be adapted to fit into pre-existing spaces as well. Ducted cooling systems are a great flexible option as it can be installed to heat or cool whatever areas in your space you need.
Inverter System Air Conditioning
Inverter technology can be expensive to install, but it balances out long term and can be a great option. It has lower running costs, less maintenance, and is long lasting – making it a great economic option in the long run. Inverter systems are different to other air conditioning systems as they utilize inverter technology that automatically adjusts the motor speed with sensors that measure air temperature. Inverter systems can keep the room at a consistent temperature without overloading the system.
Split Type Airconditioning Systems
Split type systems refer to the fact that there is both an indoor and outdoor unit that are connected through the wall by a tube. These systems are quick and easy to install, making them a great budget option – and are more affordable to run than window systems. Split system air conditioning units are great for open spaces, but can have difficulty cooling down whole houses. This makes split air conditioning systems a good option for commercial business spaces, or people who do not require their cooling or heating systems to reach every room in their house.
AC Mini Cooling System
These systems are similar to split system air conditioning units, but are smaller and more flexible. They are made of two units, indoor and outdoor connected through the wall – however they can be added to include multiple indoor units. This makes them a great supplementary option for people whose existing systems do not reach all rooms in their homes. This also means that you can heat and cool only the rooms you require and will not waste power on unused spaces.
