Reverse Cycle Air-Conditioning
How it Works
Ducted reverse-cycle air-conditioning offers both cooling and heating to provide discreet, air-conditioned comfort in your home all year round. Also known as a heat pump, reverse-cycle air-conditioners use a refrigeration cycle to cool the internal environment, and a reverse refrigeration cycle to warm it up.
To heat your home, the reverse-cycle system extracts heat from the outside air, even on a cold mid-winters night, and draws it inside. A cold liquid, known as a refrigerant, is passed through an external coil, absorbing heat from the air. This refrigerant is then pumped by a compressor, down through chambers and into a condenser. As the refrigerant is compressed, it warms up. The hot air that results is then pushed by a fan, out into the room, warming the area. Once this is completed, the refrigerant flows through an evaporator to cool it down before being pumped back into the condenser to repeat the cycle. When this process is reversed, cold air is blown into your home instead, cooling you down on hot summer days.
While reverse-cycle air-conditioning does cost more to purchase and operate than evaporative air-conditioning, it does offer a great range of benefits. It is arguably one of the most effective climate control systems available for your home and gives you the ability to both cool or warm the air, offering complete climate control. Reverse-cycle systems are also very effective in persistently humid climates.
