Melbourne boasts a famously variable climate, ranging from zero or less in many localities (particularly in the Hills) to well over forty degrees at the peak of summer. More commonly, this variable climate can see the temperature double or half overnight and your year-round comfort needs a system that can deal with these extremes. The first step is installing the best quality components by our dedicated team of professionals. We are happy to discuss your needs on a case by case basis, with obligation-free quotes for each option. Please remember that any environment needs adequate insulation from floor to ceiling in order to make best use of whatever system you decide to install.
Split systems are the most popular type of air-conditioner and at their most basic level can be as simple as a head unit inside and a condenser outside the room. However, multiple head units in different rooms may make use of a single external condenser, thus eliminating the need for multiple condensers. A Split System comprises of an outside condenser unit and an internal fan coil head unit. The warm air inside the room being cooled is drawn outside and replaced with cool air. The system is thermostatically controlled and specific temperatures are set and maintained by the user, based on the actual temperature desired. Split systems recirculate air and requires a sealed room for optimum efficiency. A split system also supplies heated air to a single or multiple rooms. Split-systems typically offer a variety of indoor unit styles including wall-mounted, ceiling-mounted and ceiling recessed. Braemar, for example, use DC Inverter Technology which uses less power to create more efficient heating and reduced running costs.
Ducted air conditioning works by directing cool or warm air flow to specific rooms from a central heat exchange unit to each room. These systems may be utilized by using ducted outlets in either the ceiling or floor – the cool or warm air is delivered to the required zone via registers (also known as grilles, outlets or vents). Unlike split systems with a head unit in each room (offering individual temperature control), the ducted system provides an overall even temperature throughout the building. Temperature is not individually adjustable within specific zones. Split ducted systems can be used for both heating and cooling.
Bulkhead air conditioners are highly effective in a situation where there is limited installation space, such as when there is a lack of wall space or there are concrete ceilings. Plus, their remarkably quiet operation makes them ideal for bedrooms, living rooms and other single room residential or commercial uses. You can control multiple rooms, or the entire house, using just one system. Bulkheads are generally more costly to install but have many advantages. Please ask if you think this may be a suitable option for you.
Not all buildings have the capacity to install split or ducted systems. The Ceiling Cassette system is a viable alternative when structural limitations prevent options. The ceiling mounted cassette system is a self contained unit that draws in hot air from the room, filters it and then dispenses cool air from all four corners of the unit, effectively providing 360 degree cooling.
