What Is Reverse Cycle Air Conditioning?
Although we're all familiar with air conditioning, reverse cycle air conditioners encompass a large group of heating and cooling solutions. It's a 2-in-1 solution that saves you the hassle of purchasing separate portable heaters, for example.
Reverse cycle air conditioning uses refrigerant and modern technology to both heat and cool your home. The energy efficient performance delivers quality climate control 12 months of the year.
Depending on the type of unit, your reverse cycle air con will look different to others. The performance typically remains the same, however. All units rely on refrigerant and a compressor to heat or cool external air that is then transported into your house. There will always be an external unit, or external component, alongside an internal unit or vents.
Types of Reverse Cycle Air Conditioning
Ducted Air Conditioning: There is one external unit that draws in air, which is warmed or cooled. The air is transported throughout the home via ducts in the ceiling, and released through vents. Return vents draw internal air back in, which is also recycled.
Split System: There is one external unit and one internal/indoor unit. The indoor unit is wall mounted, and the conditioned air is released into one specific space. There are also multi-head split systems, where several indoor units are connected to the one external motor. Split system air conditioners are less invasive than ducted.
Window/Wall Air Conditioning: A more old fashioned choice, the window air conditioner is a large box that sits in a window or wall cavity. It's an all-in-one unit perfect for heating or cooling smaller spaces where a permanent air con cannot be installed.
Benefits of Combined Heating and Cooling
Reverse cycle air conditioning is popular due to the convenience of combined heating and cooling capabilities. As a result, it's incredibly well suited to Australia and the sometimes sporadic hot and cold climate we have.
Modern reverse cycle air conditioners are incredibly adaptable and intuitive. New technology means their their ability to learn from user habits is a fantastic way to save money. It also helps to lessen the toll on the environment with fewer greenhouse gases and carbon emissions produced.
Other great benefits or reverse cycle air conditioning include:
Energy efficient climate control thanks to advanced inverter technology
Reduced power usage and increased temperature output
Timer controls and smart technology that can adapt to user habits
Year-round climate control in the heat and cold
Reduced upfront costs compared to individual air conditioning and heating systems
Inbuilt air purification from air filters inside the air con
It's pretty obvious that your air conditioner can be your best friends thanks to its two-way performance. This is an all-rounder you can rely on for comfort at home without compromising on energy efficient performance.
Reverse Cycle Price
When you boil everything down, price is always a focal point. Few of us can buy something without giving consideration to the cost. The same goes for reverse cycle air conditioning services.
Now, the price of air conditioning services will always depend on the task at hand. Maintenance, emergency repairs or installation of a new unit can vary depending on the specifics. For example, a reverse cycle ducted air conditioner is naturally going to cost more than a split system to install. The make and model will also play a part.
However, Jim's Air Conditioning is here to keep things simple. We offer upfront, fixed price quotes on all jobs. We'll provide an initial assessment before giving you a clear price so you know just what to pay.
All of our jobs can also be paired with no deposit, interest free** payment options. Customers can easily sign up for a payment plan to take the heat off any pressing payments. This means you won't break a sweat over an emergency air con service in summer. You can keep your cool and enjoy fast and reliable service.

Reverse Cycle FAQs
Jim's Air Conditioning is your reverse cycle expert. We have the answers to all your questions.
What’s the best reverse cycle air conditioner for my home?
The best reverse cycle air conditioner for is always the one that best suits your needs. The overall range of products makes this decision pretty difficult. There are numerous makes and models from leading brands like Fujitsu, Daikin, LG, Mitsubishi, Hisense and more. The list goes on. So, ask yourself:
What is my budget?
Can I have ducts installed, or should it be a split system?
How many rooms do I need to heat or cool?
What impact do I want to have on the environment?
What kind of usage habits do I/my family have?
The answers to these questions will steer you in the right direction. You can narrow down the decision to styles, like an inverter split system or ducted reverse cycle air conditioning. From there, it's all about what you can afford and budget for, and maximising those funds for ultimate quality.
What is a cassette air conditioner?
Cassette air conditioners are an indoor unit that sits flush to the roof. They're commonly found in commercial buildings and offices. The outdoor unit is like any other reverse cycle air conditioner.
In terms of a house, cassettes are not the most likely choice. It's far more noticeable as a large square on the ceiling. However, if there's no space for ductwork, it could be an option if you really want one.
