Winter Heating – Why AC is awesome!

Hot Deals

Winter is here and while daytime temperatures are still relatively mild, the evening and early mornings certainly aren’t!

There are many ways to heat your home, but reverse cycle air conditioning is one of the most effective and the most energy efficient.

Why Reverse Cycle Air Conditioners in Winter

When in heating mode, reverse cycle air conditioners work in the opposite way to when they are in cooling mode.

In basic terms, a refrigerant passes through an external coil to absorb heat from the outdoor air (even on the coldest mornings/nights).

There are many benefits of reverse cycle air conditioners including:

  • Value for money – you get two systems in one. Cooling in summer and heating in winter
  • Save on Electricity – While a reverse cycle air conditioner may cost you more upfront, you will notice the savings on your electricity bill
  • Reduced risk of fires and burns as there is no element or flame
  • Improved Air Quality – Most split system air conditioners purify the air via a filter that traps airborne particles such as dust and other allergens and Panasonic and LG have these built in
  • Better For The Environment
  • Quiet operation
  • Long life span

To ensure your system operates as efficiently as possible make sure your home is properly insulated, close curtains and blinds at night, address draughts coming in through doors and windows and close doors to rooms that aren’t being used.
