Types of Air Conditioners
Four main types, some more suited to larger properties and other to smaller depending on how large space or area you want to cool or heat.
- Wall or window mounted air conditioner. Exactly as it is titled is installed in a window or mounted to an external wall. They have become less common due to the rise of split system air conditioner. However, they may still be present in larger commercial properties.
- Split system air conditioners. Are made up of two parts, one installed outside and the other or others installed inside. The compressor unit is installed outside, while air outlet/s are installed inside. Split system air conditioners are by far the most popular choice recently in smaller homes and open plan cafes and offices.
- Cassette air conditioners. Are common in commercial properties, they are installed on the roof, and like a split system air conditioner, they have a component mounted outside.
- Ducted air conditioners. Have a similar set-up to a split system air conditioners except for the indoor component (air outlet) of the ducted system is placed inside the ceiling space. The air then travels into each room or area through large insulated duct pipes. Ducted air conditioners also offer reverse cycle cooling and heating.
Depending on your needs and wants, some air conditioners include sensors, remote control, fan speeds, hot/cold, sleep, adjustable oscillating, restart delay, zone cooling and more.
What you need to consider before choosing an Air conditioner?
What area do you want/need to be cooled?
Depending on the size of room of the property or perhaps a single room will determine which air conditioner you need and want. Some air conditioners will be more suited to closed plan rooms and if you want to control temperatures room by room (ducted) or if you only want to cool one large space (split or wall mounted).
Heating and Cooling?
If you are going to spend money on an air conditioner and you need a heater as well, it seems obvious that you should get an air conditioner that heats as well. Not all air conditioners can heat and cool. The ones that do include “reverse cycle” translates to an air conditioner that can heat and cool as it includes a heat pump. Reverse Cycle air conditioners are far more energy efficient than single heaters, meaning if chosen right, your air conditioner can heat and cool while lowering your power bill.
Choose by stars, air conditioners don’t have to be expensive, and it’s an old assumption from times before energy efficiency ratings were required to be advertised by law. And before the technology existed which allowed cooling and heating air to be efficient and energy conserving at the same time.
We will help plan with you on where the best place to install for the most efficient and effective dispersion of cold or warm air to the rooms and areas you want to be heated and cooled.
First and foremost. It is important that your chosen electricians (we do!) need holds a refrigeration licence to install, service and maintain air conditioners. For safety and insurance purposes when installing larger commercial grade air conditioners.
