Choosing the best air conditioning for your home can be overwhelming. With so many different options and brands. Factors like room size, unit size and even which type of air-conditioning unit. Reaching the right decision is challenging. If you’re finding yourself stuck doing your research, seeking some expert advice will ensure you get the best result for your home. Port City Air-Conditioning are experts across the Sunshine Coast and we can confidently declare that in most situations a split system air-conditioning unit is usually* the right choice, here’s why.

  1. Split systems are the most common type of air conditioning in Australia and are trusted by more than 70% of households around the country. This translates to a lot of expertise readily available to help with the units and a significant investment in their improvement from manufacturers. Warranty, longevity and availability due to their popularity ensure you’re getting a great product from the get-go.
  2. There are different sized options determined by the size of the rooms you are cooling/heating. For example, for a 20 sqm bedroom, you will need a 2-2.5kw system, however, if you are cooling/heating a larger space such as an 80 sqm office, you may require a 6-9kw system. These are the recommended size systems, some customers choose bigger systems for smaller rooms for faster cooling/heating but power consumption is worth considering in these instances. 
  3. Split system air conditioning is easy to operate. Usually, remote-controlled with a variety of simple heating and cooling options. Timers are a great feature of split systems and with today’s technology, you can be sitting in the office or on the worksite, adjusting the temperature of your air conditioning from your phone or tablet. 
  4. Split system air conditioning is easy to maintain and we recommend cleaning them regularly to avoid the build-up of moisture and mould. 
  5. Split system air conditioning is cheap to operate. A medium-sized split system unit (4kw) costs between $400-$500 per year to operate, significantly less if your home is solar-powered.
