What is a Reverse Cycle Air Conditioner?

Some people call them heat pumps, while others call them reverse cycle air conditioners – either way, these names are used to describe a type of air conditioner that uses a refrigeration cycle to cool your home, and a reverse refrigeration cycle to warm it up.

Reverse cycle air conditioning works to heat your home by using a compressor, which pumps refrigerant through chambers and into a condenser. As the refrigerant is compressed, it warms up – at which point, a fan blows hot air into your room. Once the refrigerant has done its job, it flows through to an evaporator and cools down before being pumped back into the condenser and recycled. When this cycle is reversed, cold air is blown into your home instead, cooling you on those long, hot summer days.

Reverse Cycle Air Conditioners Let You Enjoy a Range of Health Benefits

Reverse cycle air conditioning does more than just heat your home – it also offers a range of health benefits. Living in a home that regularly sits below 16ºC can put you at risk of acquiring respiratory diseases, so having a warm, dry home heated by reverse cycle air conditioning can help. The conditioner’s air filtration system can keep dust mites at bay, which is great for any allergy sufferers in your home. Heat pumps also dry the air, which helps remove excess moisture and humidity from your home – and a drier home is easier to heat and more energy efficient.

Factors That May Influence Your Purchasing Decision

The size of the reverse cycle air conditioning unit you choose will depend on the size of the room (or rooms) that you are heating and cooling. Make sure you have an expert come to your home and assess your needs – if the unit is too large for the space it will be too powerful and decrease efficiency, and if the unit is too small it will be incapable of heating the space efficiently; either situation will leave you with an inefficient air conditioner that won’t do much more than waste your money.

While it is nice to have a toasty warm house to come home to in winter and a chilly reprieve from the heat of summer, running your reverse cycle air conditioner on maximum is not advised. Try a milder, “room temperature” setting between 20 and 23 degrees for a pleasant home heated (or cooled) efficiently.

Reverse Cycle Air Conditioners are energy efficient

Whether you’re energy conscious or money conscious, reverse cycle air conditioning is perfect for you – it is more energy efficient than other leading types of air conditioning. Studies show that for every electrical energy unit reverse cycle air conditioners use, they move three units of heat. This means a reverse cycle unit is better for the environment and for your wallet, saving potentially thousands of dollars in heating and cooling costs every year.

Reverse cycle air conditioning is the perfect solution to your home temperature problems in summer and winter. The units are energy efficient, easy on the environment and good for your family’s health and wellbeing. These units are not for every household in every climate, of course, but if a reverse cycle air conditioning system will suit your home, you can rest assured that it will suit your budget and environment. If you’re upgrading or replacing your home heating and cooling system, a reverse cycle air conditioner is a great all-season solution to help you stay comfortable and save money
