Compressor Of An Air Conditioning Unit

Residential air conditioning has become an essential part of modern homes, which is why it’s vital to understand the basics of residential air conditioning, its energy usage and ways to maintain efficiency.

Australia is known for its hot and humid climate, making air conditioning a must to maintain a comfortable living environment. It not only helps to cool the air but also to remove humidity, which can be especially beneficial during the summer months.

Improving Energy Efficiency

The energy consumption of air conditioning units can vary greatly depending on factors such as the size of the unit, its efficiency and how it’s used. Here are a few ways to reduce the energy usage of your residential air conditioning unit:

Breakdown Of Residential Air Conditioning Types

Single-Split Systems: Single-split systems are the most common residential air conditioning unit, consisting of one indoor unit connected to one outdoor unit. They’re ideal for small- to medium-sized homes and can be installed in a single room or multiple. These systems are easy to install and relatively low-cost compared to other air conditioning systems.

Multi-Split Systems: Multi-split systems are similar to single-split systems, but they have multiple indoor units connected to a single outdoor unit. This type of air conditioning system is ideal for homes with multiple rooms or areas requiring separate temperature control. Multi-split systems are more efficient than single-split systems and are more flexible, as you can control each indoor unit independently.

Cassette Type: Cassette type air conditioning systems are installed in the ceiling and are ideal for large commercial spaces or open-plan homes. These systems provide efficient and uniform cooling throughout the room, and the units are discreetly hidden from view. Cassette type air conditioning systems are more expensive than other systems, but they offer a more streamlined and aesthetic look.

Ducted Air Conditioning: Ducted air conditioning systems are ideal for large homes or commercial spaces. They consist of an outdoor unit connected to a series of ducts that run throughout the building. This type of air conditioning system provides efficient and uniform cooling to every room in the building and is controlled by a central thermostat. Ducted air conditioning systems are the most expensive type of residential air conditioning systems, but they are also the most efficient and offer the most comprehensive temperature control.

Floor-Mounted Console: Floor-mounted console air conditioning systems are like single-split systems, but they’re installed on the floor rather than on the wall. These systems are ideal for homes with limited wall space or those who want a more compact air conditioning system. Floor-mounted console air conditioning systems are relatively low-cost compared to other types of systems and are easy to install. However, they can take up floor space, so it’s important to consider this when deciding on the kind of system to install.

Residential Air Conditioning FAQs

Aside from complete failure, there are a number of warning signs that indicate your A/C needs attention. Some of these are detailed below.

  • A/C doesn’t cool to the required temperature or takes a long time to do so.
  • A/C unit emits odd noises, the motor sounds under strain or an odd smell from the A/C outlets.
  • An increase in energy consumption with no additional boost to performance.
  • A weak flow of cooled air.

Modern A/C systems usually carry a warranty of between 3 to 10 years. During this time, in the event that there is a problem with any of the A/C parts, they will usually be replaced at no additional cost. You can reasonably expect your A/C to last for the warranty period. After this, the exact length of time the system will keep going depends on factors such as the frequency and length of use, how hard the motor has to work, whether the unit is serviced regularly, air quality (dirty air degrades a unit more swiftly than clean air) and the calibre of the unit.

As a general rule, most A/C systems are ready for replacement after 15 years or so, particularly if you are experiencing a deterioration in performance and/or the system requires frequent repairs and part replacement.

This is quite a complex question, as a lot depends on how the A/C is used. For example, if you’re only cooling one room in the home, a single split system will cost less to run than a ducted system (which will cool the whole house). Conversely, if you want whole-house cooling, ducted A/C costs less to run. Furthermore, although ducted A/C will pump out air at a constant temperature into each room, there can be significant temperature variations between rooms due to variables such as aspect, level of insulation, whether windows are left open, room size or whether the room is on the ground, first or second floor.

Because the most energy-efficient form of A/C varies depending on requirements and the property, we recommend calling us for a FREE assessment. We can then advise on the system that’s going to be most cost-effective, with the lowest running costs, for your circumstances.

Common reasons for water collecting at the base of your A/C unit include a clogged condenser line, a dirty air filter, a full drain pan or a refrigerant leak. The first three problems you can usually fix yourself (or use an A/C technician if you want a fast, convenient fix). A refrigerant leak will need professional attention.

Some properties have walls that aren’t suited to wall-mounted A/C, or a ducted system. This may be because the building is old, has a quirky design or A/C may need to be reconfigured in the medium-term. In these circumstances, a floor-mounted unit could be the solution. This operates like any other form of split unit A/C, but the interior units are mounted on the floor rather than the wall.

As already stated, there isn’t a right answer to this question. The answer depends on your A/C requirements, the type of property you have, the budget available and a number of other factors. We are happy to provide a FREE assessment of your needs, as well as offer suitable recommendations that are the best option for you and your home.
