Finding the right air conditioner for your home

  • 39755579_xl

If you’re in the process of building or renovating a home, you may be thinking about installing or upgrading air conditioning units. There are certain advantages to new air conditioners that can make a big difference to the comfort of your home, and the quality of the air you breathe. There are also plenty of variables that can contribute to the effectiveness of air conditioning in your home, so it’s best to chat to a specialist to find the right solution.

Many people get stuck trying to decide what air conditioning system they should install in their home, and we’re here to help clear a few things up. There are two main air conditioning systems: the single split system, and the ducted system. Let’s take a closer look at them and their differences.

Split system

Split systems are the indoor air conditioning units that you see mounted to walls in homes and offices with a compressor or condenser placed outside. This system is the easiest to install in new homes and the most cost-effective. It’s also energy efficient, and the advanced control technologies allow the user to optimise the cooling and heating to suit their own comfort from room to room.

Ducted systems

Ducted air conditioning systems are comprised of an outdoor unit and a small, often tucked away indoor unit, that supplies air through the ducting that runs through the roof or under the floor, into each room via vents in the ceiling, wall, or floor. This system is easy to use, and allows the user to condition an entire house, or heat and cool each room individually through zoning.

There are two major pros to installing a new air conditioner in your home. The obvious first pro to new air conditioning systems is the ability to control the climate in your home so that it’s comfortable for all. Most modern air conditioners are reverse-cycle, so the one unit is your heating and cooling solution all year round, which is very convenient. The second pro, is that air conditioners also filter the air in your home to remove allergens and toxins, which can all lead to unhealthy breathing air, and ultimately affect your health and the health of your family

Most homes are installed with air conditioning when they are built or when renovations are complete, however, in addition to air conditioning, homeowners should ensure that their home takes advantage of the other heating and cooling methods that can help keep its climate as comfortable as possible without the use of air conditioning. These include insulation, ventilation, passive home design, and shading.
