What size air conditioner do I need? (Split System)

Each room is a different size for each home and therefore different size air conditioning units will be required to keep your home cool during summer and warm during winter. Most air conditioning sizes range from 2.5kW to 7.0kW for an average size room. The best size for a bedroom would be 2.5kW to 3.5kw and the best size for a living area would be from 5.0kW to 7.0kW. Most customers have between 1 to 5 air conditioning units per household and there are alternatives to choosing multiple high wall split systems like considering ducted air conditioning or evaporative air conditioning (cooling only). Ask us about what the best combination for your home will be, call now!

What to look for when buying an air conditioner?

The energy rating of the air conditioning unit is very important and systems above a 3 star energy rating are the most popular. This saves you hundreds of dollars in electricity usage per year, and is also great for the environment. Each air conditioner will have a power rating in kilowatts and the choice of system will often be based on how much area needs to be heated or cooled down. A smaller unit will have to work harder in a bigger area of space and if the unit is too large it will consume too much energy and have negative effects on your energy bills. The Location of the air conditioning unit installation needs to be considered, because air conditioning systems require space, electrical connections and pipework for condensation drainage. Only a fully trained, experienced & licensed professional air conditioning installer can be trusted to get this installation done properly the first time. Price is important, however getting a system that suits your needs and individual space requirements so that it works efficiently and can last you for years, is the better way to approach it. Sometimes the cost does not suit your budget, so we will work with you on the best price possible and share different options and different brands that will suit your budget better. Ask us today! 

Installation timeframes are also important because you ideally want to get the air conditioner installed quickly, this is where we can really help you with quick installation timeframes available, call now!

My air conditioning is working but it is not cooling, what do I do?
Check your filters, maybe they are due to be cleaned and also ensure that they are fitted properly. Check you your temperature settings to see if someone in the family without your knowledge has changed this. Check the mode setting to ensure that it is not set to fan only mode as the air will come out but will not be cool. If the issue persists call quick fix air conditioning now.

How Long Should An Air Conditioner Run?

Maybe the best way to answer this question is that it does not matter how long an air conditioner runs, just make sure that you give the system a rest and avoid running your air conditioner 24/7, as this will eventually reduce the life of your air conditioner.

How Long Do Air Conditioners Last For On Average? (Life Expectancy of My Air Conditioner)

There is no average life expectancy for your air conditioner because there are many factors to consider when answering this question like, how many hours a day does your air conditioner run for? How cold, or hot you set the temperature to run at, and at what duration? Is there a lot of dust getting into the system? Your choice of air conditioning brand cheaper VS better quality will also effect the life of the air conditioner due to better quality parts being used in superior brands.
If you service your air conditioner regularly, you will get a lot more life out of your system. Sometimes we find that split systems may last between 7 to 10 years on average, ducted systems may last between 10 to 15 years and evaporative systems may last for 5 to 7 years just to be used as a basic guide to the longevity of air conditioning units in Australia.
