Time for a Change?
When is my ducted cooling system past its use-by date? Should I update part of it or replace it altogether? How much more eco-friendly, intelligent and energy-efficient are the latest cooling systems?
These are just some of the questions Sharpe Energy Hub gets asked every day.
Our experts will advise on “repair versus replace” options only after a detailed inspection and test of your existing system. But here is some general information to consider.
Whether it’s a reverse-cycle or evaporative air cooler, all systems have a lifespan. This is dependent on how well they have been maintained and whether they were sized correctly for the space they are cooling when first installed.
Ducting and its associated connections and dampers can still be in good condition but the main cooling unit may no longer be operating efficiently. It may even need repairs. Depending on its original quality, the expense of fixing major issues may come close to an a/c unit and controler changeover.
A long-term solution that is up to 47% more energy-efficient for reverse cycle and up to 80% more energy-efficient, would be changing over to a current-generation equivalent.
This means you also get a brand new controller, the latest technology and noticeably quieter in operation. The latest evaporative systems are also much more waterwise.
You can now have access to App-based monitoring that allows you to get your house to a comfortable temperature before you get home.
Another bonus is the long and comprehensive warranties offered on the industry-leading cooling systems Sharpe Energy Hub supplies and installs.
This all adds up to peace of mind as we prepare for the summer heat.
Changing from an inefficient unit to the latest technology will also start saving you money from day one.
