Types of Cooling Systems

As one of the fastest-selling markets in Australia, Geelong properties are in high demand. If you are planning to sell, buy or build in the Geelong and Surf Coast region you need to consider installing a cooling system as it can add substantial value to the home.

North West Heating and Cooling is a premium installer of a range of reputable air conditioning brands and we can give you advice on what cooling system should be installed at any stage of your build. We believe that cooling systems are essential in all Australian homes to battle the harsh summer heat which is why we offer a range of options at an affordable price.

Types of Cooling

There are a variety of cooling systems you can choose to install in your home, however, the cooling system you choose needs to work efficiently with your specific home design. Your cooling system should also be a cost-effective solution for your space as the last thing you want is to be stressed about utility bills in the summer.

Evaporative Cooling 

Evaporative cooling is one of the most popular cooling systems in Geelong as it is both eco-friendly and cost-effective. The system draws in outdoor air and pushes it through a filter to remove dust and debris to provide fresh and clean air. By doing so it is one of the most hygienic cooling systems on the market.

These cooling systems are perfect for family homes because they are one of the only systems that can cool the entire home through strategically placed ducts. It is also a great option for those that are environmentally conscious as this cooling option emits less CO2 emissions and only uses electricity for its heat pump and fan.

As one of the most cost-effective cooling solutions, evaporative cooling provides complete temperature comfort for Geelong families. (See our range here)

Reverse Cycle Cooling

When building your home, you may have the option to add ducted heating as an upgrade. Ducted heating options generally come with a reverse cooling add-on which can be a cost-effective and efficient way to heat and cool your home. They are ideal for homes in Geelong because they have a minimalist design, are aesthetically pleasing and are very quiet. The new zoning technology offered with reverse cycle systems means you are able to choose to cool the whole house or just certain rooms.

When considering a reverse cooling system, you will also need to consider your outdoor space as there will need to be space outside for two outdoor units. At North West, we can provide design solutions and schedule the system for its annual service.

Split System

Split systems are a great cooling solution for areas in smaller homes. Like reverse cycle systems, they consist of two units, an outdoor unit and an indoor unit mounted high on the wall. Being mounted on a high wall they require no ductwork to be completed making them an easy solution for established homes. Despite taking up wall space with the internal unit, they look fairly inconspicuous once installed.

Multi-Split System 

If you live in a larger established home, multi-split systems may still be a valuable cooling option. With the ability to have up to five systems on one compressor, you will be able to cool all the bedrooms and living spaces of an established home with ease. With multiple systems, there is a greater level of control as you are able to cater to individual preferences and have different temperatures in different living spaces.

When it comes to installing multiple split systems you will need to consider the upfront costs. With multiple systems running through the one compressor there will be reduced running costs once the summer heat sets in.
