Frequently Asked Questions

What does EER mean?

EER refers to Energy Efficiency Rating and it is something that you should pay attention to when purchasing your air conditioner. The EER measures your air conditioner’s energy consumption and efficiency. The higher the EER score, the more efficient it is going to be. This is important as a system with a high EER is going to be more economical to run and will cost you less in the long run. You can compare the different ratings from manufacturers before you decide on the model you wish to purchase.

How much does it cost to run an air conditioner?

The cost of running your air conditioner is going to depend upon a number of different factors. These include:

  • The time of year that you are running it
  • How long you have it running for
  • The temperature you have it set to
  • The size of the space to be heated
  • The effectiveness of the insulation in your home
  • The brand/model of your air conditioner
  • The location or state that your home is in

Depending upon these factors, it could cost anywhere from $0.25 to $3.00 per hour to run your AC unit.

What’s the difference between ducted and split system air conditioning?

Ducted air conditioning involves the installation of a large central unit in the roof to cool down an entire house or commercial space. The advantage is that this type of system can achieve an even temperature across a space without hot and cold spots. Split system air conditioners are individual units that usually cool a single room or zone within a building. They are typically less expensive to install than ducted units.

Do air conditioning units need to be cleaned?

Over time, the internal components of an air conditioner will become clogged with dust and other particles. This can affect performance, cause the system to run incorrectly (which will also use more energy) and even be a fire hazard. Thus, regular inspection and cleaning by qualified technicians is recommended.

Do you need to change or clean your air conditioner filter?

The main purpose of an air conditioner filter is to block the passage of dust and other particles from outside. Over time, a build-up can reduce efficiency so it’s important that they are replaced or cleaned as required. This will depend on how dusty your locale is and the number of people in your household, as well as how often you use your system.

What size air conditioner do I need?

If you’re unsure of how to calculate the size of air conditioner that you need for your room, you’re not alone. Many people are unaware of how to go about choosing the right sized AC unit. It doesn’t have to be difficult though. There is a simple measurement that you can calculate to determine the correct size air conditioner. Simply multiply the length of your room by its width. Once you know how much square metre of floor area you need to cool you should account for approximately 130 to 150 watts of power per square metre.

What is reverse cycle air conditioning?

Reverse cycle air conditioning is a type of air conditioning unit that can heat as well as cool your room. This is perfect for anyone who lives in an area that experiences both hot summers and cool winters. It is able to heat as well as cool as it has the ability to reverse the refrigeration cycle. It is one of the most cost-efficient ways of heating your homes in the cooler months.

What is the difference between air conditioning and HVAC?

When it comes to air conditioning units and HVAC systems there are several key differences that you need to be aware of. These include:

  • Air conditioner simply refers to systems that are designed to cool the air in your home
  • HVAC (standing for heating, ventilation and air conditioning) includes ventilation, ductwork, heating and air conditioning
  • HVAC can include gas furnaces and heat pumps as well
  • HVAC is generally considered to be the entire system

Put simply, air conditioning is a subsection of the HVAC a system overall.

What is an inverter?

Most air conditioning units are inverters. This simply means that the air conditioners utilise a variable frequency drive to control the speed of the motor which in turn controls the compressor. This is efficient as when the AC unit meets the cooling demand required of it, the compressor slows itself down automatically which helps to keep running costs down. The variable frequency drive allows the AC to reach the desired temperature faster while automatically adjusting to maintain the set temperature.

What does EER mean?

EER refers to Energy Efficiency Rating and it is something that you should pay attention to when purchasing your air conditioner. The EER measures your air conditioner’s energy consumption and efficiency. The higher the EER score, the more efficient it is going to be. This is important as a system with a high EER is going to be more economical to run and will cost you less in the long run. You can compare the different ratings from manufacturers before you decide on the model you wish to purchase.

Should you get your air conditioner serviced?

Like every machine, an air conditioner comprises many small and delicate parts. The more your air conditioner unit is used the more likely it is that some of these parts may need to be repaired or replaced over the years. Getting your air conditioner serviced regularly can not only help ensure that it remains in good working condition, but it will also ensure that your unit is working at maximum capacity and efficiency. This will help keep your running costs down and will extend the life of your air conditioning unit.

What is the best temperature to set your air conditioner to?

There’s no arguing that Australia is notoriously hot, especially through the summer months. While it may be tempting to boost your air conditioner to a chilly 18 degrees to make it through the worst of the summer heat, this isn’t always the best temperature to set your unit to, especially if you want to keep an eye on your budget. It has been suggested that an optimal temperature range to set your air conditioner to is 24 to 25 degrees in summer. This may seem warmer than you would expect, but it is more than sufficient to cool your home and help get you through the summer months in comfort.

It has also been shown that setting your AC unit to this temperature is going to be cheaper to operate in the long run, especially if you like to run your AC unit all day.
