    Approximate maximum hourly running costs for how much electricity they use are provided below, although actual costs will depend on the cooling capacity of the unit and the fan speed that you run it on:

    portable units cost 2 to 3 cents per hour
    window/wall-mounted units cost 6 to 7 cents per hour
    ducted units (medium size) cost 12 to 28 cents per hour.

    Air Conditioning Installation

    Installing Air conditioning at affordable prices

    – Standard Single Storey split system installation

    Our installation technique is, in most cases, easy and simple which means there won’t be a lot of complications during the process.

    Our standard split system installation has two main components that has pipes that run through the walls from a mounted indoor unit down to an outdoor united, directly below a single storey. As far as your installation goes, it just may be a split system installation, or it might require extra piping in order to guarantee your unit is in the perfect position.

    Along with your standard installation, you get a few perks as well: Compliance and certification that are ACT and VIC mandatory, up to to 20 meters of internal cable run, weatherproof safety isolation mounted to your unit, so you can keep safe at all times, ducting to conceal the pipes and connections to your electronic units and finally, you’ll get up to 2,5 meters of pipework done between the outdoor unit and your heat unit. You can also get further distances but these come with greater costs.

    – Standard Double Storey split system installation

    In most cases, the two storey installation is easy to perform, even though two storeys are involved in the process itself. Again, the double storey split system installation has two major components, an indoor unit mounted o the wall of the second floor, and an outdoor unit mounted at ground level, directly below the outdoor unit.

    Our installation process makes future work such as repairs and maintenance services a lot easier due to the accessibility provided. If the outdoor unit is required to be mounted on a wall, it can be done at an additional cost. Refrigeration pipes are a requirement in order to connect the indoor and the outdoor unit. This installation can suffer variations in order to ensure that the needs of our clients are met.

    Along with a standard double storey installation, you’ll also get: Compliance and certification that are ACT and VIC mandatory, up to 5 meters od ducting concealing the electrical connections and the pipe work (further distances might require additional costs), weatherproof safety isolation mounted to your unit, electrical supply of up to 8 meters, pipework between the outdoor and the indoor unit of up to 5 meters (again, further distances might require additional costs) and finally up to 20 meters of internal roof cable.

    There may be some additional costs depending on the installation process required to meet your needs. These costs might be things such as extra piping, brackets, electrical work such as circuit upgrades, poly slab installations, as well as installations that might be required further than the standard charges.

    Air Conditioning

    Split air conditioning systems get their name from the way they function. They have half the system outside the house (the condenser) and the other half inside the house (the fan coil). When cooling, the fan coil removes the warm air from inside the room and as such, makes cool air recirculate back into the house. On the other hand, reverse cycle allows the heat pump to run in reverse in order to warm up the house during cold days.

    These air conditioning systems can be used on individual rooms, areas with multiple rooms connected with copper piping and an outdoor unit. Multi-head split air conditioning systems can use only one outdoor unit for up to nine individual rooms, providing specific temperature control to each one of these rooms.

    Types of indoor units:

    There are two major types of spilt systems: the conventional one where the split system has one fan coil and is connected to one condenser and a multi-head system, where there are multiple fan coils connected to a single condenser – a maximum of 9 fan coils.

    Wall mount:

    This is the standard type off residential split air conditioning. It is usually used for apartments and small houses.

    Bulkhead:

    This unit is used whenever normal split system installation isn’t possible, due to the lack of wall space. Bulkhead can solve the problem and provide heating or cooling, while still being quiet for any application.

    Ceiling Cassette:

    Cleverly designed, these units can be attached to the ceiling in order to provide a little more flexibility in situations where the wall space is simply not enough. Traditionally, these units are used for commercial purposes such as in bars or shops, but they can be used whenever the wall space isn’t enough

    Console

    These systems can be installed both on the floor and on the ceiling. Usually they are used in commercial buildings such as hotel, but they can also be used in domestic situations whenever proper airflow is required.

    Floor Standing

    For those who want to position their air conditioning unit at ground level, the floor standing unit is ideal for them. These units use either top or top and bottom discharges that allow them to properly distribute air across the room.

    Split air conditioning is affordable. For one single room, wall mounted split air conditioning units are the best option as they are relatively cheap, and work properly for a long time (if well taken care of).

    Furthermore, they allow independent temperature control for different rooms whenever the multi-head split system is used, which makes it the most viable options for usage in areas that need a lot of different rooms with specific temperature adjustments.

    Finally, a lot of split AC units have air filtering and humidity control systems, which provide top air quality to its users.

    Refrigerated Cooling

    How do Refrigerated Air Conditioning units work?

    During the summer it can be really hard to get a good night’s sleep. Being semi-naked in bed will still be too hot, the air is still too dense, and water will only wake you up, so that won’t help. With the help of a reverse-cycle air conditioning system you can control the climate as you please.

    Weather conditions won’t matter anymore, since a ducted heating and cooling system can make your home as warm or as cool as you want to be throughout the year, regardless of weather conditions. Economically generating heat, the air conditioner simply reverses the operation – instead of throwing away hot air and circulating cool air in, it does the opposite.

    There are several types of air conditioners, ranging from simple, cheap room air conditioners to fully ducted refrigerated systems. These can vary in size and power, ranging from 2.4 kW to 200 kW. We always help you consider the one that will be perfect for your needs, so you won’t have to pay too much to be well served, and so that you won’t pay too little for systems that won’t really help you in your current situation.

    Why you should go with refrigerated air cooling:

    These types of units are quiet and don’t really bother anyone while they control the climate in the room. During the winter, these units distribute heat, while during the summer; they distribute cool air, leading to the perfect climate – every time.

    Inverter Technology

    This type of technology is what will provide comfort throughout the year, without costing you a lot more. As you control the compressor rotation speed with precision, you’ll get high-speed heating a cooling while still saving energy as compared to other non-inverter models, which won’t allow you to save as much energy.

    Why would anyone endure the exhaust heat of the summer, or the cold air of the winter, when such technology is available at such low prices? Being affordable, and allowing anyone to get perfect climate indoors, these units will improve the quality of your life to a great extent.

    Our Recommendation

    Our ducted heating and cooling systems are flexible. They can be customized to any application and to every need you might possibly have. We do, however, suggest that you consider the best, well-known brands such as Daikin or Mitsubishi, since they are reliable in their efficiency, and provide advanced inverter technology.

    Required system sizing:

    We arrange our system sizing according to an estimate of the sizes of rooms – small houses take 7-10 kW, medium houses take 12-14 kW and large houses take 17-25 kW.

    For more information or to clarify any questions you might have regarding our products make sure to call us at 1300 980 878. We will make sure to help to the best of our capabilities.
