Affordable Air Conditioning Installation Brisbane
Beat the Heat In Summer With A Cost-Effective Air Conditioning Solution
Your Expert Air Conditioner Installers
Here at Iconic Electrical & Data Pty Ltd, we understand the importance of having reliable air conditioning all year round in your family home or place business. When summer hits in Brisbane, the heat and humidity can be intense and there is no way a ceiling fan is going to have much effect in the hottest of these months.
During this sticky season, many people in Brisbane spend their free time hiding in the cool air conditioning of a local shopping centre but it doesn’t have to be this way as anyone can have new split system air conditioner installed that will cool down any space for an affordable price.
When Iconic Electrical & Data Pty Ltd install a brand new split system air conditioning unit in your home or office, we go to great lengths to ensure your energy bill isn’t going to be greatly impacted by recommending only the best performing and energy-efficient brands such as Daikin, Mitsubishi and Fujitsu.
Every installation is carefully thought through as we take into consideration the size and shape of your space and where possible ensure you have all the special bonus features such as WIFI controlling for the best package price possible.
The Benefits of Split System Air Conditioning
A split system air conditioner is a popular choice for Brisbane homeowners and businesses as they come with many advantages, for example;
- No Noise – the newer models are so quiet you can barely hear them
- Climate Control – you can customise the comfort control settings so your aircon will automatically adjust to keep the room at your preferred temperature without you having to do anything and without overworking the system which keeps your energy consumption down
- Clean Air – The air you breathe from air conditioning has gone through a purification process so they are healthier
- They are greater heaters – Split system air conditioners come with reverse cycle capabilities, which means you can use them to heat your space in winter which is far more energy-efficient than running a heater.
- Affordability – With so much competition out there air conditioning has become affordable. Add our buying power as professional installers and the right air conditioning installed soon pays for itself
If you have a business, a split system air conditioner installed works well for an area that supports up to 15-20 people before having to consider something larger like ducted air conditioning.
For the homeowner just about any room can benefit from air conditioning, but the ideal spaces for split system air con units are:
- Living Areas
- Home Office
Reverse Cycle Air Conditioning Explained
Reverse cycle air conditioning gives you the best of both worlds with both heating and cooling at your fingertips that you can control.
The Air conditioning cooling process is where hot air within a room is drawn into an outside compressor unit where a fan blows air over a special coil filled with refrigerant liquid which helps removes the hot air, transferring it outside and pumping the remaining cold air back inside. The exact same process is used to heat a room only in reverse, hence the term ‘reverse cycle’ air conditioning.
An additional benefit of reverse cycle air conditioning is that it allows you to close the windows and prevent dust and debris you would normally get from having security and fly screens open. This is a huge benefit for people suffering from health problems including allergies and asthma as you have the advantages of breathing clean air when you sleep or when at the workplace.
Air Conditioning Unit Room Size Guide
It’s not recommended that you go too big or too small as they both have pitfalls. A unit that is too small won’t cool the room, will be overworked and expensive to run. Likewise, a unit that is too large will be overkill and the cost of it versus ongoing energy savings won’t end up being the best solution for you.
Our qualified technicians are always the best people to discuss what the best-sized air conditioner would be to suit your room space, but for a domestic dwelling in the Brisbane climate, you won’t be too far off using the following guide:
- Room Size: 10-20m2 = a 2.6kW unit
- Room Size: 20-30m2 = a 3.5kW unit
- Room Size: 30-50m2 = a 5-6kW unit
- Room Size: 50-70m2 = a 7-8kW unit
Air Conditioner Costs & Electricity Bills
If you wanted to understand how much an air conditioner costs to run, it depends on a number of factors but a typical reverse cycle air-con system for cooling a smaller room costs approximately $0.25-$0.35 per hour.
A medium-sized room of around 36 m2 (the size of a typical garage) would cost $$0.36 – $0.70 per hour.
With the larger areas of 50m2 and above it will cost between $0.70 and $0.95 per hour.
For heating purposes, you can budget between $0.13 – $0.36 per hour which is cheaper than your average heater.
Handy Air Conditioner Tips
A couple of basic handy tips we would give you is to ensure that in the hot days you aren’t tempted to lower the temperature below 21 deg. rather keep the doors and windows closed to the room and pull the blinds or curtains down if the room takes direct sunlight.
Remember, with a new reverse cycle split system unit, you can customise the comfort control settings as well so the unit will automatically adjust to keep the room at your preferred temperature without you having to do anything and without overworking the system.
In the cooler months of winter, the same principle applies if you are heating a room, don’t push it too far above 25 deg and try to keep consistency by having doors and windows closed.
Always keep the temperature on the recommended settings so the system keeps you comfortable and thus will use less energy which will save you money in the long run.
What About Air Conditioner Maintenance?
One of the most common concerns about air conditioners is that they can be expensive or confusing to maintain over time.
Whilst it is true about low-quality cheap systems, a recognised brand split system air conditioner is not only proven to be more economical but it’s easy to perform the basic regular maintenance yourself such as cleaning the main filter at the front of the inside unit regularly and ensuring there is no build-up of dirt and rubbish on the outside unit. Performing these basics will help keep the unit operating efficiently as well as prolong its life.
If you don’t feel comfortable with this, don’t worry we can offer you a professional maintenance plan, which includes an expert service on a periodical timeframe which will keep your systems operating like brand new for years to come.
