How do I choose the right cooling system for my home?

The easiest way to choose the right cooling system for your home is to consult an experienced professional. Evaporative cooling, ducted reverse cycle systems and individual split air conditioners are all worth considering, but some may be more effective for your property than others.

What is the most efficient way to cool a house?

This will depend on the type and size of the house in question, as well as your personal preferences and habits. If, for example, you only need to cool one or two rooms in your home at any given time, a room split air-conditioning unit may be your best choice. On the other hand, if you wish to cool every part of your home throughout the summer months, a ducted system will probably be a better choice.

How does evaporative cooling work?

Evaporative coolers draw hot air from outside through the system via pads that are saturated with water. As the air passes through the saturated pad it is cooled and it is delivered into the house via a series of duct.

If you want to use your ducted air conditioning more efficiently, you can:

  • Close all doors and windows
  • Add a climate control zoning system
  • Draw the curtains/close the blinds
  • Set your thermostat a little higher
  • If available, use economy mode

All these tips will help to reduce your energy consumption during the warmer part of the year.

How long does an air conditioning system last?

With regular maintenance and repairs, you could enjoy an average of 10-15 years of service from a domestic air conditioning system in Canberra.
