As winter approaches, you’re probably preparing for the Great Annual Appliance Switch: fans go away, heaters come out!
But if you’d rather ditch the switch for good, a Reverse Cycle Air Conditioner might be the solution.
What is a Reverse Cycle Air Conditioner?
As the name suggests, a reverse cycle air conditioning unit cycles cold refrigerant to the indoor unit to cool your home and reverses the process to provide warm refrigerant to the indoor unit to heat your home.
What are the benefits of a Reverse Cycle Air Conditioner?
It’s simple for a professional to install, efficient to run, and a holistic temperature solution for your home or office.
Think about the amount of research that goes into getting the right type of heater for your space. Will it heat the whole room? How much energy will it use? Is it safe to use in a room unattended? With a reverse cycle air conditioner, you won’t ever have to worry about paying an arm or a leg for your heating costs, or worse: being a winter house-fire statistic. Your entire space will be warm and toasty when you need it to be, without the risk and expense that comes with a portable heater.
Reverse cycle units are also incredibly energy efficient. With a 300%-600% energy efficiency capability, they can take one unit of electrical energy and turn it into up to six times the heating or cooling energy! These units also produce from one-third to one-fifth less carbon emissions than a standard electric heater, so are far better for the environment. And if you already have solar installed on your property, they’re far better for the hip pocket too!
How do I choose the right Reverse Cycle Air Conditioner?
The first thing to consider is the space that you want to heat and cool. Check in with your installer to find out the best option for you and the best place to install it, so you are getting the most bang for your buck.
It’s important to consider the climate in your region too as different regions of the country will suit different units. The Zoned Energy Rating Label can help you decide on the best reverse cycle machine for your region. It will show a unit’s efficiency rating based on Australia’s three different climate zones, so you can rest assured that you’re getting the best fit for the climate you live in.
