Choosing a system
Confused? Dont be, we are here to help.........
Once you decide to buy an air conditioner, first, you need to decide what type of system is best for your home. Window or wall-mounted air conditioners are easily installed, but can be noisy. Split systems require more installation but can be quieter to run and are generally more energy-efficient. Ducted systems provide cool air outlets throughout the house.
Secondly, you should think about whether you want to use the air conditioner as a heater during winter as reverse cycle systems can be a very energy-efficient way of heating your home. Third, it’s very important to make sure the air conditioner you buy is the right size for the area you want to cool. An air conditioners’ cooling or heating output is measured in kilowatts. To see if the unit you’re looking at will be too powerful or too small you need to first work out how big the room is in square meters.
*As a rough indication allow 125-140 watts per square metre of floor area to be cooled.
The right size will also vary depend on the climate and the efficiency of your house including its orientation, the number of windows, level of insulation and the ceiling heights.
Finally, choose the most efficient model that will perform the task - the higher the star rating the better. Inverter or variable speed drive models are generally more efficient and have lower running costs. It will also run more efficiently if it’s installed in a cool, shaded part of the house.
