Air Conditioner

At Dawson Electric, we too are local Brisbanites, and so we understand the need for air conditioning all year round in your home or business. During the summer months, it can get hot and sticky outside and a fan just isn’t enough to beat the Queensland temperatures and humidity. You don’t need to escape to the local shops to escape the elements when you can enjoy the use of a split system air conditioning unit at home or work. And with a split system air conditioner installation in Brisbane, you can also make use of the heating features of a reverse cycle during the cooler months.

When getting a split system air conditioning system installed by Dawson Electric, you will not only be more comfortable in your surroundings, but you can rest assured that installation is of the highest professional standard. You can choose from a variety of reputable brands such as Fujitsu and Mitsubishi Electric.


Why Get a Split System Air Conditioner Installed?

As mentioned above, not only can you cool but you can heat on a reverse cycle depending on your needs at the time. However, there are many more fantastic benefits of having split system air conditioning installed at home or the office around Brisbane. You can have individual air conditioning systems in different rooms allowing you to choose the right temperature should one room have more sunlight than another or one have morning sun and the other the afternoon sun. You can then customise your settings as necessary for each room that you have a unit installed.

The split system is an excellent option for compact spaces rather than a large building. This is great for an office of up to 20 people or an open area of your home such as the kitchen, dining and entertainment area. Another great feature of a split system air conditioning unit is the compressor is outside of the building and uses the outside air into the room after going through a specially designed filtration or conditioning process to ensure you have the cleanest of air with no leaves or debris from the outside.

Did we mention that split system air conditioning is also known for being more economical than most other systems and uses less energy, saving you money? Not only are they low maintenance as well as having a low cost for the maintenance such as the filters and parts, but with electricity prices in Queensland constantly rising, you can be comfortable without worrying about adding too much onto your utility bills.

How to Choose the Right Air Conditioning Unit for You

The Dawson Electric air conditioning technician will go through all these details with you during your initial consultation. However, just some of the things they will need to consider include, how big is the room the system will be installed in? How many people will use the room? What kind of electrical or heating devices are used? What BTU (British Thermal Unit) capacity is needed in terms of a kilowatt power output? Should a unit be too big, then it will not be as energy efficient as it could be, or too small then it won’t cool or heat the room to your desired temperature. As an average guideline for a domestic dwelling, a technician would follow the below standards if a room is:

  • 10-20m2 then a unit of 2.6kW should be adequate
  • 20-30m2 use a 3.5kW unit
  • 30-45m2 would suit a 5-6kW unit
  • 45-65kW would benefit a 7-8kW unit

Money Saving Tips for Owning an Air Conditioner

If you’re thinking about your electricity costs, © CHOICE has done their own testing and found that the approximate yearly cost is between $286-586 per year based on electricity costs of 30 cents/kWh. However, by having a Dawson Electric professional air conditioning installer do the hard calculations of choosing the right system, this can help reduce your cost by ensuring that you have the right size for your needs and be more energy efficient. Another handy tip during warmer weather is to try not to put your air conditioning setting as cold as you can, keep it above 20°C and try not to use if the temperature inside is 25°C or below. In those colder months, utilise blankets, warm clothing and a nice hot drink until it gets to 8°C or cooler and then use the reverse cycle option for heating. This doesn’t only save on the energy bills but also the wear and tear of the unit and reduces maintenance costs.
