How To Choose The
Right Air Con For You
TYPES OF AIR CONS
There are many different kinds of air conditioners, and one of them is the
perfect match for your
cooling needs, some even offer heating for all year round comfort. Whether
you are keen to know
the difference between split
cycles, or you just want to know what kind of air
conditioner you need without wading through technical jargon, here's
everything you need to know.
Now that you've chosen the type of air conditioner you want, it's time to
create an optimised setup that keeps you cool all summer. Here are our tips
and guidance to help you achieve a top-quality
air conditioner arrangement that enhances your comfort to the fullest.
We’ll break down all the tech talk and acronyms that you need to know.
A split air conditioner consists of two main components: an indoor unit
(evaporator) and an
outdoor unit (condenser). They are connected by refrigerant lines and
can cool a single room or
multiple rooms, depending on the configuration.
A window wall air conditioner is a
designed to be mounted in a window or a hole in a wall. It is a compact
cooling solution for single rooms or small spaces.
A portable air conditioner is a
self-contained unit on wheels
that can be moved from room to room. It typically requires a window or
vent for exhaust and is
suitable for cooling individual rooms.
The part of the air conditioner that is
located indoors. It
contains components such as the evaporator coil and blower, and is
responsible for cooling or
heating the indoor air and distributing it throughout the room or
The part of the air conditioner that is
located outdoors. It
contains components like the compressor and condenser coil, which
release heat from the
refrigerant into the outdoor environment to enable the cooling or
The condenser is a component of an air
releases heat from the refrigerant to the outside environment. It is
typically located in the
The evaporator coil is the indoor
component of the air
conditioner that absorbs heat from the indoor air and allows the
refrigerant to evaporate,
cooling the indoor space.
The compressor is responsible for
refrigerant, raising its temperature, and circulating it through the
system. It is often
referred to as the "heart" of the air conditioner.
A filter is a component that captures
dust, debris, and
allergens from the air as it passes through the air conditioner.
Regularly changing or cleaning
the filter helps maintain air quality and system efficiency.
Airflow refers to the movement of air
through the air
conditioning system, including the rate and direction of air
circulation. Proper airflow is
essential for efficient operation.
A device designed to improve indoor air
quality by removing
airborne contaminants, allergens, and pollutants from the air. Some air
conditioners double as
From split systems to portable coolers, our buying guides encompass all the essential
information for discovering the perfect cooling solution tailored to your needs.
We all love summer but when balmy weather turns sticky
uncomfortable, it’s time to think about your home’s cooling. With the right cooling
appliances, you can
make any room in your home one you want to spend time in.” - Scott Bazley, The Good Guys
Your air conditioner filter needs to be cleaned regularly to maintain good air
quality and extend
the life of your air conditioner. Manufacturers usually recommend cleaning your
filters every few
weeks, but this can vary depending on usage. Generally, the more often you use
your air conditioner,
the more often you should clean it. Check your air conditioner's manual for the
As a general guide:
1. Turn off the power to your air conditioner.
2. Locate the filter: It's usually located behind a grille or plastic panel on
the front that can
pop open. In some window or portable air conditioning units, the filter may be
accessible from the
front or back of the unit. Refer to your user manual if you're not sure where to
3. Remove the filter: Carefully remove the filter from its housing. Depending on
the type of air
conditioner, you may need to slide it out, pull it down, or open a latch to
access the filter.
4. Clean the filter: There are different ways to clean an air conditioner
filter, depending on the
a. Washable Filters:If you have a washable filter (usually made of foam or
mesh), you can clean it
by gently rinsing it with warm water. Use a mild detergent if it's particularly
washing, allow the filter to air dry completely before reinstalling it.
b. Disposable Filters:Disposable filters should be replaced rather than cleaned.
These are typically
made of fiberglass or pleated paper material. Make sure to get the right size
and type for your
5. Reinstall the Filter: Once the filter is clean and dry (or replaced if it's
carefully slide it back into its housing. Make sure it is properly seated and
To calculate the size you need measure the square meters (length x width) of the
area you want to
cool. Then, calculate the cooling capacity. Generally, you will need about
1.25-1.7 kilowatts of
power per 10 sqm if your ceilings are a standard height.
Cleaning an entire air conditioning system involves more than just cleaning the
filter. It requires
regular maintenance to keep the unit running efficiently and to ensure the air
quality in your home
remains optimal. For instructions specific to your air conditioner, check the
user manual that came
with your air conditioner.
Ensure your air conditioner works properly and efficiently by cleaning and
Filters – Filters capture airborne particles so these can get
Regularly cleaning or changing filters (as often as every month or two in
summer) is the quickest
way to save energy on home cooling, helping you use 5-15% less energy and reduce
your bills. Homes
with pets or lots of exposure to dust will need to replace their filters more
Coils – Dirt inevitably collects in the evaporator coils and
condenser coils over
time. Dirt in the evaporator coil reduces air flow and the ability to evaporate
heat, so check the
evaporator coil every year and clean it when it needs it. Dirt can also collect
on condenser coil
fins, especially if it’s in an outdoor area that’s dusty or leafy. Keep the area
condenser coil clear of tree foliage, grass cuttings and other debris so there’s
around the condenser.
Fins – The evaporator coils and condenser coils both have fins
which can bend,
blocking air flow. Buy a “fin comb” and use this special air conditioner tool to
straighten the fins
out again and ensure maximum air flow.
Drains – Air conditioners have condensate drains that can clog,
which stops the air
conditioner from being able to reduce the humidity and can cause excess air
moisture to affect your
carpets and walls. To prevent clogs, feed a stiff wire through the drain
channels every now and
Seals – At the start of every summer, check the seal that sits
between the air
conditioner and the window to ensure it’s still a tight seal, and that moisture
damage isn’t causing
cool air to escape outside.
Split system air conditioners are the most common type of air conditioner in
Australia. They are
made up of two parts, with one attached to the internal wall, while the other
sits on the outside to
exhaust heat out. Split systems are known for their energy efficiency, quiet
operation, and precise
temperature control. They are often used for cooling individual rooms.
conditioning temperature during summer depends on a variety of factors,
personal comfort, health, and energy efficiency. If you're looking for the ideal
to 27°C is generally the sweet spot for comfort and energy efficiency.
