The Advantages of Reverse Cycle Heating & Cooling Systems

The Australian climate is one of the best in the world, with long, hot summers and short, mild winters – but if you’re tired of sweaty summer nights and are freezing your toes off on winter mornings, you’re probably looking for a compact, energy-efficient way to comfortably control your home environment. Here’s why reverse cycle heating & cooling systems are the best option.

Warm in Winter, Cool in Summer

Reverse cycle heating & cooling systems cool your home in summer and warm it up in winter – all in one, simple, quiet unit. The way they work is very different to a traditional heating or cooling system. Instead of creating heat by burning fuel, the system passes refrigerant through an outdoor coil, absorbing heat from the air outside which is then pumped into your home.

In summer, this process is reversed, so the refrigerant then absorbs heat from the air inside your home and pumps it outdoors, cooling your space. That’s the magic of reverse cycle heating & cooling.

Great Energy Efficiency

There’s nothing like a toasty home in winter or a cool space in summer – until you get the energy bill! If you want to keep your home environment pleasantly perfect through the seasons while keeping your energy use down, then a reverse cycle heating & cooling system is a much better option than a heater or air conditioning unit.

The technology these systems use is far more energy efficient than traditional heating and cooling options, even when operating in the most extreme conditions. Generally, they produce 3 or more kW of heating or cooling per 1kW of energy consumed. As a result, most people who use traditional heaters and air conditioners see a 30% reduction in their energy bill when they install reverse cycle heating & cooling.

These systems are eco-friendly in other ways too. Besides using less energy, they also produce fewer greenhouse gasses than air conditioning and heating units – just look for options with the highest energy star ratings.

Zoning Capabilities

These units also have the ability to heat or cool certain part of your home and not others, which increases their energy efficiency while ensuring minimal wastage. When you have a reverse cycle heating & cooling system, you’re never paying to heat or cool a space you aren’t using. It also means you can cater for different tastes, ensuring different rooms are just as warm or as cool as needed by the occupants.

Improved Air Quality

Reverse cycle heating & cooling systems also have state-of-the-art HEPA filters that purify the air as it is filtered into your home. These filters can trap fine dust particles, pollen and other allergens, which is ideal for anyone who suffers from respiratory conditions like asthma or seasonal allergies. They can also trap odours, keeping your home smelling fresh and clean.
