Residential Heating & Cooling
Choosing the right system for your home:
At Northside we can supply and install just the right system that will suit your household needs for many years … some of the questions you need to consider are:
1. Cooling only, or cooling & heating (reverse cycle)?
This will help you discount a lot of options. ‘Cooling only’ is cheaper, but only slightly. So, even if you have another form of heating, it’s worth considering a ‘reverse cycle’ unit as a back-up.
2. How big is the area or areas that need to be cooled &/or heated?
The size of the room will indicate the capacity of the unit you need.
3. Is your home insulated?
Another key consideration. A room with no insulation will require more capacity to air condition than a room with properly installed insulation.
4. What aspects are the windows in the room/s to be heated or cooled?
This will affect the natural temperature of the room, and has a big influence on the type of air-conditioning required.
