What kinds of air conditioners are available in Queensland?

Table of Contents

Queensland is an amazing place to visit. We have breathtaking natural beauty, thriving economies, and hip cities brimming with culture and vitality. It’s a fantastic place to live, work, raise a family, and relax. Summer in Queensland, on the other hand, is extremely hot. With temperatures reaching 45 degrees Celsius in some years, having some climate control solutions in your home is a must.

Air conditioners are the most commonly used method of temperature regulation. However, if you’re considering purchasing one or more for your home, you may be wondering what type of air conditioner to get. There are several types on the market, so we’ll go over what they are and the benefits and drawbacks of each in this post.


This type of air conditioner gets its name from the fact that it is made up of two parts. The interior unit blows cold air, whereas the exterior unit includes a fan and a cooling system.

Split systems are the most common type of air conditioning system in Noosa, and they are ideal for single rooms or open plan areas up to sixty meters squared. Their prices range from around $600 to a few thousand dollars, depending on the brand and the cost of installation.

Split systems are more energy efficient when used in rooms or small spaces. Because a split system only cools one room or region, you must be careful where you install it. You’ll probably want one in your living room and one in your bedroom. Because you spend most of your time at home in these living areas, they require the most cooling.

A system with multiple splits

The outdoor unit is linked to multiple interior units, similar to a split system. This makes it ideal for smaller spaces such as bedrooms. A multi-split device will cost roughly the same as a split system.

This type of air conditioner has the advantage of allowing you to adjust the temperature of each interior unit individually, and this temperature can fluctuate. As a result, one room may become cooler than the other. This is ideal for families with varying cooling preferences. Your children may have it turned up to eleven, while you have it just right for you.

Cooling through ducts

With ducted cooling, the primary cooling unit is frequently located in a secluded area, such as your roof. It will be linked to multiple air ducts that will snake throughout your home, with each room having its own air outlet and temperature sensors.

This device is ideal for cooling an entire house and is frequently used in conjunction with a heating function to keep you warm throughout the winter. A ducted system, on the other hand, starts around $5,000 and quickly rises from there, especially if you have a larger home. This puts it out of reach and out of reach for some families. Running costs may be high as well, especially if you use the heating feature.

The wall/window unit

This was one of the first air conditioners introduced. It is made up of a boxed unit that is installed in a window or wall. It’s ideal for small open-plan areas or single rooms. Larger versions may necessitate additional cabling, but these devices can be plugged into a standard outlet. Window units are not as energy efficient as split systems, but they are less expensive and thus a better choice for families on a budget.

A portable air conditioning unit

This is a small air conditioner that you can move from one room to another as needed. The majority of them come with flexible duct tubing that must be connected to a window to vent the heat to the outside.

These units are inefficient and should be used only if a split system cannot be installed. They can be a viable option, for example, if you rent a room or a house and the landlord refuses to install a split system.

Here’s the deal…

We’ve gone over all of the different types of air conditioners available in Queensland, as well as the benefits and drawbacks of each. A split system is the most efficient, but a multi-system may be useful for larger families or those with different temperature needs.
