How to choose your air conditioning

Brisbane homes come in many shapes and sizes. Our homes are exposed to astonishing heats in Summer, while parts of Brisbane can get bitterly cold in Winter. So what are the important factors you need to consider when choosing an AC system

What size air conditioner?

The cooling potential of an air conditioning system is measured in Kilowatts (kWs). Many installers may provide you an estimate based on the floorspace of each room. However, if you send us an inquiry we’ll ask additional questions because other factors, like ceiling height or wall materials and insulation, also come into play.

How many rooms?

The question of how many rooms you want cooled (or heated) leads to what system you’ll need. A ducted system is the ultimate cooling solution as it can cover an entire house, and even provide different temperatures to each room. If you just need your bedroom cooled for those hot summer nights, a split-system is a simple and cost-effective solution.

Air Conditioning Energy Efficiency

Cooling and heating is a major source of energy consumption in Australian homes, so it’s important to choose wisely. Modern systems are rapidly increasing in technology and efficiency, so when you call be sure to a discuss which option is best your home.

Types of residential air conditioning systems


Split System

Very similar to split-systems, but runs multiple indoor head units from one outdoor unit.


Ducted System

One centrally-controlled system that cools the entire house through a series of ducts.
