Breaking up is never easy. But sometimes, moving on is for the best! And when it comes to cooling your home, if you’re using an evaporative system, you could probably do better.
Metro Air specialises in evaporative air conditioning replacement. If you’re looking to experience a new form of comfort, we can replace your existing evaporative system with a split or ducted reverse cycle unit.
But first, it’s handy to know what the differences are between evaporative cooling and reverse cycle air conditioning.

Replacement evaporative air conditioning

Throughout Australia, ducted evaporative systems cool homes when the warmer weather arrives. The system uses water to soak a cooling pad and then pumps air from outside through the moist pad. This process causes the water to evaporate and delivers cooler air to the home.

Reverse cycle air conditioning

Meanwhile, a ducted reverse cycle system absorbs air and uses refrigerant gas to cool or heat it before pumping it through the ducts. Refrigerated air conditioning, as it is also known, works by gradually cooling the same air and reducing the temperature.


1. The comfort of heating and cooling

A reverse cycle system provides homeowners with the ultimate air conditioned comfort!

At the click of a button, homeowners can switch seamlessly between heating and cooling. Reverse cycle air conditioners are an ideal and energy-efficient solution for Australian conditions. A unit that can cool your abode in summer and warm your bones in winter, this system is all about comfort.


2. It’s the clever choice

As the technology in your life becomes more intelligent, why shouldn’t your air conditioning? The good news is, it can.

Many reverse cycle systems, such as the latest Panasonic, Daikin and Mitsubishi systems sync perfectly with AirTouch 2+ & AirTouch 5. Meaning they are compatible with other smart technologies including WiFi. This means your reverse cycle system can be used even when you’re not home.

And a reverse cycle system allows homeowners to manage the temperature of a room, as well as use timers, to ensure each space suits their needs.


3. Enhance at home security

Heating. Cooling. And maintaining your home’s security? Yeah, that’s right!

Leaving windows and doors open has long been the norm for many Australian homes. Evaporative cooling systems require openings in the home to function.

But a reverse cycle system works at its best when the house is sealed. That means your home can remain secure and safe while regulating the temperature.


4. More energy efficient

A key consideration when it comes to updating your air conditioning system is how efficiently it will run. And reverse cycle systems offer some of the most efficient options. In fact, most reverse cycle systems are more efficient than portable heaters.

What’s more, a reverse cycle system can “zone” certain areas of your house. That means the air conditioning system can work intelligently to cool or heat a few rooms rather than the entire home. And being able to tailor your system in this manner is a helpful way to manage the output of the unit and keep costs down.
