Air Conditioner Types

With so many options to choose from, you must decide which air conditioning unit is the right choice for you. There are several options available in the market and some of them are:

Spilt System Air Conditioners

This system involves blowing in cool air and expelling the heat outside. These energyefficient air conditioners consist of two units, one wall-mounted in the room and an outside compressor unit. Spilt Systems are commonly great for large and open living areas whereas multi-head air conditioners might be handy for those who have bigger, multi-storey homes.

Window/Wall Air Conditioners

These are designed to be installed on a wall or mounted on a windowsill with a style that suits small to mediumsized rooms.

Portable Air Conditioners

Some of you may require cooling in a particular spot in small rooms, for which these air conditioners with portable features facilitate moving from room to room, providing flexible cooling. For such air conditioners, it should be noted that this type of cooling requires ducting via a venting kit mounted to a window in order to expel heat from the room.

Reverse Cycle Air Conditioner/Inverter Air Conditioning

A Reverse Cycle Air Conditioner provides both heating and cooling features, giving you the option to either cool your house in summer or to keep it warm in winter, and all that is done from one unit.

Inverter Air Conditioner

An Inverter Air Conditioner is powered by an inverter motor that allows it to adjust its speed of operation in response to the cooling demand. An inverter motor is way more efficient in comparison to a traditional compressor. A traditional compressor will only run at a constant speed the whole time but an inverter compressor (motor) is efficient in saving power once it reaches the set temperature.

Conditions to Consider

While choosing the right air conditioning unit is the most crucial part, there are several other factors that must be considered when selecting a heating or cooling unit. Some of these factors are:


While considering your location in Australia you must ensure that in hot and humid areas like the northern regions, you may need a more powerful air conditioner, while staying in milder climates, a smaller unit might suffice.

Size of the Area

For a perfect fit to your space, calculate the square footage of the area you want to cool. This helps determine the cooling capacity (measured in BTUs or kilowatts) needed for the air conditioner.

Energy Efficiency

Inspect for units with a high Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER) or Coefficient of Performance (COP) as this can significantly impact your energy bills.

Type of Air Conditioner

Choose the right type of air conditioner according to your needs. Selecting split-system, ducted, window, or portable air conditioners according to your home’s design is important for a right fit to your place.


Be cautious about your spending and balance it with your desired features and efficiency. Inverter systems tend to be more energy-efficient but can be pricier.

Noise Levels

Your choice of air conditioner sould not bring discomfort to your environment so pay attention to the decibel rating ensuring that the air conditioner operates quietly, especially if it’s for bedrooms or living spaces.
