Air Conditioning Systems in Australia

In Australia you will find different types of “Air Conditioning” systems, the most common being:

  • Split System Reverse Cycle
  • Ducted Reverse Cycle
  • Evaporative Cooling System

Split System Reverse Cycle

The normal Split System Reverse Cycle, comprises an outdoor cooling/heating unit, and an indoor smaller control unit, normally sited on the wall, back to back with the outdoor unit.

Ducted Reverse Cycle

The Ducted Reverse Cycle, has ducts throughout the house to a central unit that cools or heats the air, and these ducts direct that air back to the rooms.

The term “Reverse Cycle”, means it can be used for Heating or Cooling.

Evaporative cooling system

The Evaporative cooling system, has NO option to heat, it is only cooling. This system uses much less power than the other systems, as it relies more on adding cooled water into the air.

This system is popular in the dry heat of WA, but would be near useless in the humid parts of QLD.

    Evaporative coolers, like all equipment, require maintenance.
    Legionnaire’s Disease, caused by the bacterium Legionella pneumophila and related bacteria … “may be found in purpose built water systems such as cooling towers, evaporative condensers…”As such, it is critical that evaporative coolers be properly installed and adequately maintained according to their manufacturers’ recommendations.

DIY Air Conditioner Cleaner - AIRCONcare™ is a DIY complete cleaning system for ductless split air conditioners designed with an innovative patented wash bag system that enables a complete professional quality chemical cleaning and flushing of the ductless split air conditioner. This is the world's first air conditioner cleaning system that cleans, washes and flushes the cooling coils and the rotor fan blades without dismantling the air conditioning unit off the wall. The patented wash bag just takes seconds to put on, and is designed to hold 3 liters of waste water from the chemical and flushing water. The cleaning chemical is biodegradable and is specifically designed to lift and strip bio-slime from the cooling fins and fan blades. No strong chemical odors, just pleasant fresh pine lemon scent.
