A reverse cycle air conditioning unit is both a heater and cooler in one. It’s like “Buy one, get one free!” or “Two for the price of one!” Whether it’s an icy cold morning, or a stinking hot afternoon, you can have effortless climate control at your fingertips. Reverse cycle air conditioners are one of the most convenient heating and cooling system in Australia.
In summer there is nothing better than experiencing that perfect ‘not too warm’ and ‘not too cold’ temperature. After hours outdoors sweating under the scorching sun, come inside and feel relaxed with instant cool, fresh air. With the flick of a switch your reverse cycle air conditioner will cool your home, even when outside temperatures reach up to 46°C. The system absorbs heat from the air outside, then filters it through a refrigerant to fan cool air. Not only can reverse cycle units cool the air, they can also dehumidify the air.
However, if you live in the southern states of Australia, it’s certainly not summery conditions all year round. During the frosty winter months, a heater is definitely a necessity. In this case, your reverse cycle system extracts heat from the air outside, even in winter, and uses a refrigerant to heat the air through a condenser, then distributes the warm air inside. (After being passed through a filter of course). Reverse cycle heaters have a defrost function meaning they can still work effectively in temperatures below freezing. This is a much more energy efficient process than using a conventional or gas heater, which operates by creating heat.
Reverse cycle air conditioners have other benefits. They are quiet, adaptable and versatile. In order to reach your target temperature, they modify their power and speed. This comes from inverter technology, which will also keep the temperature consistent without fluctuating.
Another huge advantage for you and your family is how purifying these systems can be. Any floating particles in the air such as dust and other pollutants get trapped in a filter, resulting in clean and fresh air being circulated through the home. This is better for your health, reducing triggers of hay fever, asthma and more.
