Evaporative vs Reverse Cycle Air conditioning
Purchase Price & Running Costs
The most impressive feature of CoolBreeze Air Conditioning compared to refrigerated systems is the price. Even the biggest CoolBreeze evaporative units are a fraction of the price of a comparable refrigerated unit. But the big savings come with the running costs – The largest residential CoolBreeze air conditioning unit uses less power than a standard refrigerated wall unit that cools just your living room.
No more of the “it’s not hot enough to turn on the air-con” – with CoolBreeze you can run the unit 24 hours a day for around the cost of running a refrigerated unit for just one hour!
With refrigerated air conditioning the cost of replacement parts can be astronomical. A fan assembly typically costs around $800 and upwards and heaven help if the compressor fails! You could be up for $1800 or more quite easily.
With CoolBreeze Air Conditioning the most expensive component, the motor, retails for around $400 to $500.
Fresh air vs re-circulated
CoolBreeze Evaporative Air Conditioners provide a continuous flow of fresh, filtered air into your home. Fresh and cool, this airflow forces out stale air, which is never re-circulated. Typically, all the air in your home is replaced 35 times per hour, unlike refrigerated air conditioning that repeatedly recycles the same air over and over again.
Most refrigerated air conditioners have air-filters built into the system. These require regular maintenance and replacement; however your CoolBreeze Evaporative Air Conditioner automatically cleans and washes the filter panels before and after every use ensuring a clean fresh environment for your family.
With its low energy costs and the use of water in place of ozone depleting refrigerant gases used in refrigerated air conditioners
Whole of Home vs Zoned Areas
With the low running costs of CoolBreeze you can cool your whole home without the need to decide which ‘zone’ to cool.
Due to the high operating costs of refrigerated air conditioning, most systems are designed to only cool part of the home at a time as a unit capable of cooling the whole house at once would draw a massive amount of power. You can run the CoolBreeze Air Conditioning System all day for a fraction of the price.
By cooling the whole home you remove the core heat from the structure of the house. This is particularly effective during heat wave conditions where high temperatures over consecutive days build up the heat load of the house. With your CoolBreeze system, you will sleep easy every night.
Many people see refrigerated air conditioning as the “magic bullet” that is going to cure all their home comfort needs, however the facts show the operating range for most domestic refrigerated air conditioners is between -2o and 35o with performance dropping off dramatically outside this range.
With only a handful of extremely hot and humid days each year across the “Mediterranean Climate” of the Southern half of Australia, evaporative air conditioning, provided it is sized correctly for your home, will provide a comfortable in-home environment for your family that you will be happy to use rather than begrudgingly turn on when you can’t bear the heat anymore.
