Are you on the hunt for a new air conditioner to keep your property cool and comfortable in Australia’s unpredictable climate? We’ve put together a quick guide to finding the right appliance for your home.
Home air conditioning options
There are several types of air conditioners on the market, including split-system, ducted, multi-split, portable, and window air conditioners. Ducted systems tend to be the most expensive, while smaller portable appliances can be relatively cheap. As a general rule, however, costlier options tend to be more effective, energy-efficient, and long-lasting.
Some air conditioning units feature reverse-cycle technology, allowing users to heat their homes in winter as well as cool their homes throughout the summer. This may be helpful if you live in a part of the country that experiences chilly seasonal weather. Other features to look out for include:
- Air purifying filters
- Sleep mode
- Automatic de-icing features
- Automated turn-on/turn-off
Split system air conditioner installation
Split systems represent the most popular type of air conditioner in Australia thanks to their affordability and excellent air conditioning powers. Split systems feature an outdoor unit containing a condenser and compressor, as well as an indoor unit with an air handler.
Split systems work by pulling air from the room into the appliance. This air is cooled as it travels across evaporator coils, and it is then pushed back into the room via indoor vents. This process continues until the desired temperature is reached.
The primary benefits of split systems include:
- They’re very easy to install – your operative simply needs to make an opening in your wall measuring around 3 inches in diameter
- They’re quiet
- They’re more secure than window air conditioners
- They can cool different areas of the home, depending on your needs
- They’re suitable for all styles of décor
- They’re very energy-efficient, helping to mitigate your energy bills and carbon footprint
Ducted system air conditioner installation
Ducted air conditioning features a central fan coil that is connected to your rooms via a network of ducts. This allows users to cool the entire home and adjust the temperature of individual rooms. Ducted air conditioning is suitable for installation across all types of properties, although it requires more intensive installation work compared to a split system.
Benefits of ducted systems include:
- They’re almost invisible – great if you like minimalism
- They’re very energy-efficient
- You can control the temperature of different rooms
- They’re often cheaper to install than split air conditioning, as they use one central system

Even if you’re not shopping around for a new air conditioner, you must have your existing appliance serviced at least once a year or so. This will ensure your air conditioner stays in good working order. We also advise you to read our blog on regassing an air conditioner at home.

It’s important to note that portable air conditioners can’t substitute for a ducted system or split system AC units, as they aren’t designed to cool an entire home. They can be costlier to operate than traditional systems and might not offer the same cooling power for larger areas.
Among the available options, inverter air conditioners stand out as the most energy-efficient. In comparison, non-inverter models feature a single-speed motor that frequently cycles on and off. Although inverter air conditioners come with a higher initial cost, they prove to be cost-effective in terms of energy savings in the long run.
Panasonic, Daikin, and Actron Air rank among the top air conditioner brands in Australia. These brands are renowned for their consistent delivery of high-quality, dependable air conditioning systems.
The electricity consumption of an air conditioner can vary depending on several factors including the capacity of the unit, its energy-efficient rating, usage patterns, and the local climate.
In general, a ducted air conditioner typically uses around 2000 to 6000 watts per hour whilst systems units use between 650 and 2000 watts per hour.
The typical lifespan of ducted air conditioning systems falls between 10 to 15 years. Remember, how long your air conditioner lasts depends on maintenance, usage, local climate, AC type, and the insulation and sealing of your house.
According to the Australian Refrigeration Council (ARC), a licensed technician must handle the installation of split systems. Installers and technicians are mandated to possess either a full Refrigeration & Air Conditioning license or a restricted license that permits the installation of split-system air conditioners.
In Australia, it is a legal requirement to hold both electrical and refrigeration licensing to perform air conditioner installations.
Typically, during extreme heat, it’s more cost-effective to leave the AC running consistently. Yet, it’s inefficient to keep it at maximum capacity constantly. However, the effectiveness may differ based on your AC system. If you’re unsure about reducing your energy bills, consulting a professional is advisable.
