Do you need a system that is “cooling only’ or ‘reverse cycle (cooling and heating)?

‘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.

What size air conditioner unit will I need?

Correct sizing of air conditioners is very important – too big is just as bad a too small. Your Weather Wizard free quote takes into account many factors which affects the correct size of air conditioner for your circumstances.

What is the ceiling height and floor area of the room (s) to be air-conditioned?

Obviously, the size of the room has a big influence on the capacity of the unit you need. So, take the exact measurements and note them down.

Do you have ceiling insulation in your roof?

Another key consideration. A room with no insulation will require more capacity to air condition than a room with properly installed insulation.

Where are the windows in your room facing, ie North, South, West or East?

This will affect the natural temperature of the room and has a big influence on the type of air-conditioning required.

What size are the windows in your room(s)?

Knowing the size of the windows will help your choice. So, once you have the measurements of the room, measure the height and width of your windows too.

Where are the units installed?

Indoor units are to be mounted on an external wall. Outdoor units must be located outside for hot air to discharge. The condenser can not be boxed in as ventilation to unit is necessary.

Who does the electrical work?

All split air conditioning systems up to 10.5 kW require 240 volt, single phase power. Units 5.2 kW and above require a separate circuit from the electrical board, still only 240V single phase. Weather Wizard employ our own qualified and licensed electricians.

How much does air condition cost to run?

Estimated average running cost of a split air conditioning unit, are as follows:-
1. Small unit 10 cents per hour
2. Medium unit 20 cents per hour
3. Large unit 35 cents per hour

What are the main types of home air conditioning?

Ducted air conditioning and split air conditioning. Ducted air conditioning is used when you want to air condition the whole of your home using one system. NB: not all houses will be suitable for this type of installation. We can advise you on the suitability when we do a site visit.

What’s an inverter?

Inverter stands for closer control on temperature and has a saving on the running costs of the unit. This is achieved by a variable speed compressor.

Do you supply remote controls?

All units have a remote control with a timer, sleep modes and humidity control. These are battery operated. We ensure you fully understand how to operate the system before we leave.  Don;t panic if you forget, you can always contact Weather Wizard who will be happy to assist.

Do you supply spare filters?

All units have filters supplied in the indoor unit. Check brochures as to whether the manufacturer supplies additional filters.

What happens to the extracted moisture?

The indoor unit absorbs moisture out of the atmosphere on the cooling mode and the outdoor unit drains water on the heating mode. During installation, a drain is run from the indoor unit through the outdoor unit and into the nearest down pipe, drain or garden bed.

Is the new unit covered by a warranty?

All split air conditioning systems sold have a five year manufacturers warranty if installed to specifications by licensed refrigeration technicians. Once unit is installed, an annual maintenance program is available and recommended by the manufacturer to ensure unit works to its full capacity for the life of the system.

Is Weather Wizard insured and licensed?
