Why is it important to ensure the system is sized correctly?
The system must be designed to suit the area. If the unit is too small it will work hard to cool the area. This will use more electricity and put a strain on the system.
If the system is too big it will short cycle turning on and off continually and not cooling or heating correctly.
How do I know what size air conditioner I need?
A very broad guide, as every home has a different heat load we recommend you measure the square floor area and multiple it by 160 watts. Example: 3 meter x 5 meter bedroom = 15 square meters x 160= 2400 watts or 2.4 kW We check these calculations and heat load during our free job valuation.
My system is old, should I bother repairing it?
It really depends on the fault within the air conditioning system, brand and size.
If the system is a small 2.5 kW running on R22 gas, we would suggest a new system would be better suited.
If the system is 7 kW or 8 kW it may be worth repairing as a new systems of this size is quite expensive to buy.
How can I tell if my air conditioner is running on R22 gas?
You can check on the outdoor unit label, it will say on the name plate. This is usually on the side of the unit.
My remote has stopped working, can it be replaced?
