Types of Air Conditioners

There are three main types of Air Conditioners. Ducted Reverse Cycle, Split System and Evaporative. Read about these systems below. Air Transfer Kits work with split systems to transfer heat to other rooms in the home.

Ducted Reverse Cycle

What is it?

Ducted Reverse Cycle Air Conditioners consist of roof or floor mounted units, ducting, and vents in the ceilings of each room in the house.

We specialise in the Australian, award winning Actron Air Range of Ducted Reverse Cycle Air Conditioners. There are four main types of Ducted Reverse Cycle Units that Actron Air Specialise in:

Functions

These systems both heat and cool the air which they pump into your home, making them ideal for both winter and summer use. They give precise temperature control.

How it Works

 

Ducted Reverse Cycle Air Conditioners draw air from the home. This air is cooled with refrigerant and then sent back to cool the home. The air is transported through ducting which transports the air from the various rooms in the house to winter.

Split System

What is it?

A Split System Air Conditioning Unit is called this because the unit is split into two parts: An external, usually floor mounted compressor and an internal distribution head. These two parts are connected via ducting. They are typically used for cooling and heating one room or area of a house rather than every room or area.

Functions

These systems both heat and cool the air which they pump into your home, making them ideal for both winter and summer use. They give precise temperature control.

How it Works

Similar to Ducted Reverse Cycle Air Conditioners, Split System Air Conditioners cool and heat their air with a refrigerant system in the compressor. The air is then passed usually up a wall via ducting to the Head Unit where it is distributed into a room. They are usually more expensive to run than an evaporative system but not as much as ducted reverse cycle, which is equipped to pump air into many rooms rather than just one.

Evaporative Cooling

What is it?

An Evaporative Air Conditioning Unit usually consists of a roof mounted unit, ducting and vents on the ceiling of each room in the house.

The advantages of Evaporative Air Conditioning is that it pumps fresh, clean air into your home, replacing the existing air every few minutes. This is important for the health and well being of those in your house and a is a way of driving pollutants out of your home.

Air is cooled naturally by water, which means that the air is not dry as sometimes is the case with refrigerated air. Because it is not refrigerated, it is also much cheaper to run, making evaporative Air Conditioning the natural and efficient way to cool your home.

Functions

These systems only cool the air through an evaporative process. They do not work well in humid situations and are controlled by a fan speed setting and therefore do not give precise temperature control. They are considered the most cost effective and natural way to cool a house.

How it Works

Evaporative Air Conditioners draw air in through a fan in the unit that is mounted on the roof. The air passes through filters which are cooled by running water through them. The cooled air is then distributed via the roof ducting to the various rooms in the house.

Air Transfer Kits

How it Works

Air Transfer kits use a fan to move air from the heat source room to the other rooms of the house. Often the air in a heated room is much warmer up near the ceiling and therefore not utilised to felt by the people who are actually in the room at floor level. Rather than letting this heated air go to waste, the air is drawn up into the ceiling ducts and distributed to other rooms in the house.

Functions

These systems are only used to transfer heated the air throughout the house. One further benefit to heating the air is they create healthy air circulation throughout the house as the room with the heating source draws in air from surrounding rooms as the transfer kit takes air out of the room.

What is it?

Air Transfer Kits are used to distribute heating from one room to the rest of the house via fan, Ducting and Ceiling Vents. They work in situations where a central heating source such as a fire place or gas heater heat up a room well enough to transfer excess heat to other parts of the house.
