Evaporative Cooling

Evaporative cooling systems does exactly that, they cool an area through the evaporation of water. The system draws dry hot air in over a wetting medium that is saturated with water, then blows the moist, cooler air back into the area through installed vents. This system has its advantages and disadvantages.

Firstly, the systems themselves are less mechanically complicated than refrigerated systems, meaning install can often be cheaper. They are eco-friendlier than refrigerated systems, and potentially most importantly they use fresh air from outside, creating a constant flow of fresh air. Some disadvantages are that they do not work well in high humidity environments. They also require rooms to be highly ventilated in order to be effective.

Split System

Split system units are a type of heating/cooling system that is comprised of an internal wall-mounted unit, combined with an external unit called the compressor. These systems are connected by two small pipes that carry refrigerant. This system can heat and cool your home, effectively servicing areas up to 60 square meters. Split System units are the most common residential system, likely due to the aesthetically pleasing finish, large servicing capabilities, and generally lower cost to install.

It is important to note the difference between inverter and non-inverter systems. Inverter systems have an inverter in the compressor unit’s motor, which allows it to control the speed of the motor. This essentially allows the system to continuously regulate the temperature of the room. This means a few things. Firstly, it means that the system doesn’t cool/heat a room to the desired temperature and then turn off, then turn back on when it detects a temperature change. This constant ability to maintain temperature means that it uses significantly less energy and can save you around 30% in running costs. It also allows for faster cooling and is generally a quieter system.

Ducted Split System

A ducted split system is essentially the same technical system as the above-mentioned split system. The major difference is that the internal unit is installed in the ceiling. This unit then disperses air out through ducts in various rooms. The major advantage of this is the ability to heat/cool an entire house.

The technology also allows you to zone the areas to be heated/cooled. These systems however can be difficult to install in already built houses – get in touch to see if this will suit you.

Ducted Gas Heating

Ducted heating is a very common choice for heating the entire house. It utilises the air already in the home, sending it over a grill heated by gas. It uses multiple ducts placed in each room of the house or office to provide overall warmth. It negates the need for multiple on-the-wall units.

Package Unit

A Packaged Unit system essentially combines all the different parts of a split system unit into one cabinet that is usually located on the roof, or next to the foundations of the building. These units can offer both heating and cooling services. These systems can be very effective for small commercial buildings since they don’t take up much internal space, and they can easily be modified to service larger areas if need be. They can also be a good choice for homes where internal small is either limited or difficult to access.

Room AC

Room AC systems are units that focus on exactly that, cooling a single room or small space. They are smaller units that generally are more cost-effective, due to the fact they are only charged with cooling a small area.
