What type of air conditioner do I need?

Gold Coast residents know why it’s called the Gold Coast. We enjoy many hours of sunshine over here, and it can get uncomfortably warm in these parts. An air conditioning system is an answer to all your problems, but with so many sizes and types on the market, we’re sure that you don’t know where to start. There are so many factors to consider, including the size of the space, your budget, and your needs. You can call your favourite Gold Coast electrician to help you make the right decision, but until you do, here’s a guide to give you a starting point…

What is the best type of air conditioning unit?

The most common type of air conditioning is a split system. Split system models are preferred because they’re the most energy-efficient, affordable, and the most appealing bonus is that they’re quiet. We’ve put together a cost guide for air conditioning costs for interested customers. This air conditioner model has a system that is split into two main parts—an air outlet unit that is inside and a compressor box that is fixed outside. The unit inside sucks out the hot air and replaces it with a cold air-conditioned refrigerant gas pipe. The pipe connects the two split systems. Split system ACs are usually attached high on a wall so that the outdoor unit can be installed on the same wall outside of the room or area in which the AC will work.

Benefits of a split system air conditioning system

  • Most affordable

Split system air conditioning units are the most affordable on the market, and that’s why they are so popular. The price of installation isn’t too high either. You need to ensure that a licensed and fully trained technician correctly installs your unit because it can be dangerous work. Doing this also ensures that you don’t have to pay for expensive repairs due to faulty installation. 

  • Quick Installation

It may be the customer’s favourite choice, but it is also the favourite choice of any electrician on the Gold Coast because it’s easy to install. The entire installation process only takes a few hours, and that’s across the spectrum of any property type. A quick installation means minor inconvenience to you as the customer, and that’s always a big win for us. 

  • Flexible installation options 

Split air conditioning systems are made of two parts, and one of them has to be on the property’s exterior. As long as the room has a wall that’s outward-facing, you can install the unit anywhere. It doesn’t require a lot of space either. In fact, just an empty wall will do. It can be mounted on any wall wherever the unit can fit.

  • Suitable for any home

We’ve already mentioned it, but split air conditioning units can be installed anywhere because of how flexible it is to install. This includes smaller houses or apartments too!
