Jim’s Air Conditioning is the reverse cycle specialist. Our expert team of technicians can do the lot - ducted reverse cycle, split system, window and cassette.
What Is Reverse Cycle Air Conditioning?
Reverse cycle air conditioning is a technology that both heats and cools your home. It is also called refrigerated air conditioning because it uses a refrigerant to cool the air and, surprisingly, to warm air as well.
Reverse cycle systems with refrigerant and a compressor are the basis of ducted units, split systems and even the old fashioned window air conditioners. It really just means an air conditioner that can be a cooler or a heater. Part of the unit of a reverse cycle air conditioner has to be outside - the backside of a window AC or the compressor for a split or ducted system.

Types of Reverse Cycle Systems
Both ducted and split systems are, as we said, reverse cycle. So they share the great advantage of doubling as a cooler in summer and a heater in winter. A reverse cycle ducted system is a whole house solution that warms or cools however many rooms you want.
You can divide the house into zones, but individual control of each bedroom is generally not feasible. That’s where several split systems can edge out a fully ducted house. If you simply need a single bedroom and a large living space air conditioned, a multi head split system can be superior.
It can come down to the space you have around the outside of your house and how you like your home’s interior to look. Reverse cycle ducted systems have discreet vents in the ceiling, whereas split systems have bulky heads that can be difficult to find a position for in bedrooms.
Jim’s can advise you as to the best choice for your circumstances and we have no difficulty putting in either of these types of reverse cycle AC units.
Reverse Cycle Window and Wall Air Conditioners
For bedrooms and small spaces, the good old school window air conditioner can be an effective and affordable option. Many older homes had them built into the wall and it can be the most sensible option when the original unit reaches the end of its life to simply replace it with a modern, quieter and more efficient wall AC unit. Jim’s Air Conditioning install all sorts of window air conditioners if you find the task is beyond you.
Reverse Cycle Price
The price of a reverse cycle air conditioner depends on a number of things. For instance, a reverse cycle ducted air conditioner is naturally going to cost more than a split system. And the price of a window air conditioner is likely to be lower than both of the former. Other things that affect the price are the brand and model.
Jim’s is happy to be able to arrange easy to pay, easy to apply for, no deposit payment plans that attract no interest whatsoever. So cost is no reason not to keep cool this summer or keep the winter chill outside.

What’s the best reverse cycle air conditioner?
The best reverse cycle air conditioner is the one that does what you need in terms of climate control, looks good and fits your budget. The choice is quite wide, with several types and any number of makes and models.
For a single room there is split system or a window air conditioner. For the whole house there are fully ducted reverse cycle ACs or multi-head split systems. Some of these systems have the further option of inverter technology, which smoothly and efficiently controls the temperature rather than constantly turning on and off. For rooms that don’t have wall space or where you just don’t want the look of a split system head, there is a cassette air conditioner that fits in the ceiling.
What is a cassette air conditioner?
A cassette air conditioner is a type of reverse cycle split system air con that has the head mounted more or less flush to the ceiling. It’s used in circumstances where there is no wall space or when ducts are too difficult.
