    How to choose the right one

    If you are in the market for a new air conditioning system, it’s good to know the pros and cons of your options before making a decision. Not all air conditioning units are suited for all homes, for example, a ducted air conditioner would be most effective in a large house with many rooms, whereas a split system air conditioning unit would cool one room in the same house, but none of the others.

    To help you choose the best air conditioner for your home, let’s look at three of the most popular air conditioning systems. Each of these systems is designed for a specific need and purpose, each with their own set of benefits.


    Split System Air Conditioners

    If you only need a specific room or area cooled or heated, a split system air conditioner is a great choice. The name ‘split’ derives from the fact that this type of system consists of both an indoor and an outdoor unit. Smartfix Electrical’s quality split system aircons are both compact and powerful, while still being quiet and energy efficient.

    The benefits of split system aircons:

    • Cool or warm individual rooms or specific areas in your home.
    • Quickly set your room to a comfortable temperature.
    • Operate your aircon remotely.
    • Relatively low energy costs.
    • Quick, easy installation without having to make structural changes to your home.

    We recommend split system air conditioners for town houses, apartments, small houses and offices.

    Ducted Air Conditioners

    Ducted air conditioning allows for various rooms in your house to be connected to one central air conditioning system. Ducted aircons are driven by a unit installed in the ceiling, known as a fan coil. This unit is connected to a series of ducts running throughout your home, circulating cool or warm air.

    The benefits of ducted aircons:

    • You can control heating and cooling in individual rooms, rather than the house as a whole.
    • It’s more discrete than most air conditioning units as it’s tucked away in the ceiling or behind a wall.
    • Ducted aircons run quietly.
    • More conducive to whole-of-house entertaining as you don’t have to shut off areas just to keep the temperature constant.
    • You don’t have to pay installation costs for individual split system aircon units in multiple rooms.
    • Ducted reverse-cycle air conditioning allows you to heat your home without the additional costs and hassle associated with installing a separate heating system.

    We recommend ducted air conditioners for larger homes or homes where each person prefers a different temperature.

    Evaporative Air Conditioners

    Ducted evaporative cooling consists of a head unit mounted to the roof. Today’s head units are often low profile and unobtrusive. The head unit fan sucks large volumes of air through water saturated filter pads and feeds fresh, cool, clean air through a series of ducts in the ceiling space into the rooms.

    The benefits of evaporative aircons:

    • Perfect for families who love open windows and fresh air – in fact, it works best with windows open.
    • Ducted evaporative cooling sets the benchmark for efficiency – it’s seven times cheaper to run than refrigerated systems.
    • Ducted evaporative air conditioners are up to 50% cheaper to install.
    • It uses no refrigerants, making it a great eco-friendly cooling system.

    We recommend evaporative air conditioners for areas that have hot, dry summers. Evaporative air conditioners only provide cooling and require a separate heating system to be installed for winters.

    If you are looking for a cost effective air conditioner that’s kind to the environment, an evaporative air conditioner is a great option. And because fresh air is constantly brought into your home (rather than the same air being re-circulated), ducted evaporative cooling is the healthiest choice.
