Reverse Cycle Air Conditioning

Consider using Reverse Cycle Air Conditioning as a backup heater in the colder months.

In situations where you may choose a cooling system only - it may be a benefit to include reverse cycle as well.

One source of information is the Victorian Government brochure on Reverse Cycle Air Conditioning

Advantages of Reverse Cycle Air Conditioning

  • One of the most economical forms of heating
  • Able to provide both heating and cooling
  • Remain cool to touch at all times
  • Have no exposed elements or flames
  • Lifetime of up to 20 years
  • Filter and dehumidify air

Sizing your air conditioner

Economical running costs rely on selecting a reverse cycle air conditioner that is the right size for your needs. Accurate sizing is essential before buying a unit and should include a detailed heat load survey of your home by a qualified technician recommended by a unit's manufacturer or retailer.

Under or oversized units will give poor performance. Ask for the reverse cycle air conditioner output capacity to be expressed in kilowatts (kW). Horsepower (HP) is often inaccurate and misleading as it measures the size
of the motor, but does not accurately reflect the unit's output.
