First Time Home Buyers In-Home Air Conditioning Guide

As a first home buyer in Gympie, choosing the best air conditioning for your home can be challenging. From portable units to reverse-cycle split systems, there are a range of options to choose from depending on your budget and goals. Below, the team at Tony Stephens Refrigeration explores some of the options.


Split-systems are among the most popular home air conditioning options in Australia and consist of an indoor unit and an outdoor unit. In cooling mode, a split-system extracts heat from the indoor air and moves it outside using the refrigerant gas in the pipes connecting the two units. Split-systems are one of the most energy efficient cooling and heating options available and are excellent for a room or open plan area up to around 60 square metres in size.


Similar to a split-system, a multi-split system consists of one outdoor unit connected to two or more indoor units. This is a good option when you want to cool up to five separate rooms, control the temperature individually and don’t have the space for a ducted system.

Ducted Systems

Ducted systems feature a central unit connected by air ducts to air outlets and sensors in each room. These advanced systems look discreet and are excellent for cooling and heating a whole house. However, they are the most costly and difficult home air conditioning system to install, due to requiring ducts in each room.
