Reversible Air Conditionning: 2 In 1 System For Your Comfort!

Reversible AC is perfect for your confort!

You may have heard of reversible air conditioning, but what exactly is a reverse cycle air conditioning system and should you consider installing it in your home?

In the following article we will tell you why this technology might just be the smarter option for you.

Nowadays, most air conditioning systems are reversible. Reversible means that one system is responsible for both heating a home in the winter and cooling it down once warmer weather arrives. For many, the reversible air conditioning system is still thought to be a luxury amenity, providing convenience, comfort and contentment.

The operation of a reversible air conditioning system is comparable to that of an (air) heat pump. It has an air conditioning function when it is hot and a heating function when it is cold. This 2-in-1 feature continues to gain popularity in American homes because it is practical. It improves thermal comfort and often at a much lower cost.

Here is a breakdown of how reversible air conditioning works:

  • There is a unit located outside
  • There is a unit located inside (able to cool and heat the room)
  • Both are connected to a main pipe that carries water through the system

During the summer, the reversible air conditioning system acts much like a central air conditioner because the unit sucks in the heat and ejects it outdoors. During the winter, the unit collects heat from the outside and forces it inside.

Wait! Before you “add to cart” or call to have a new reversible air conditioning system installed, allow us to share the pros and cons of each model.

How To Complete The Budgeting Process For Your New Reversible Air Conditioner.

What The Budget Of a Reversible Air Conditioner

What should you take into account when creating a budget? Consider the manufacturer, the type of system suggested for your home and its energy efficiency. In an effort to avoid any defects or malfunction, we generally recommend going with the most recognized and established manufacturers as their products are frequently more dependable and oftentimes come with a warranty. We ultimately encourage you to consult a trusted contractor who will advise you honestly and accurately.

Have you heard that old saying, “You get what you pay for!”? Well when purchasing an air conditioning system, buying it for a low price in an effort to save money seems like a smart idea at first. However, it may cost you a lot more in the long run. On the other hand, your investment in energy efficiency will essentially pay for itself if it functions properly for approximately 5-10 years from the date of installation.

The budget for a reversible air conditioning unit is determined by the following:

  • Air conditioning Equipment:

Being aware of the number of units needed to be installed.

Understanding the inverter system, which regulates the temperature.

  • The Installation Process:

Find out what the service includes. It is recommended to compare quotes from different companies. What does the service actually include? Is the contractor licensed and insured?

  • A licensed and insured professional will request a commission. This is mandatory.
  • We encourage you to know the facts before installation. For example, is there a fee for future maintenance?

During the process of selecting a reversible air conditioner, it is necessary to compare the energy efficiency of each model. The power consumption or efficiency is measured by the energy efficiency ratio (EER), which can vary significantly. The higher the EER rating, the more efficient the air conditioner. (Look for the ENERGY STAR label.)

If you’re wondering why a reversible air conditioner is more expensive than a conventional air conditioner, it is because a reversible air conditioner can accommodate both heating and cooling. It also runs year round, which can cause more wear and tear, ultimately reducing its lifespan.

Price comparison:

We’ve listed the average cost for different types of reversible air conditioning systems . Please note, the following costs do not include the installation fee.

  • Reversible Monobloc Air Conditioning: The starting price for a basic, low-cost model is approximately $500.00, whereas a more sophisticated or multidimensional model can cost up to approximately $2,000.00.
  • Reversible Multi-Split Air Conditioning: This system allows you to have different temperatures in each room, which is an optimal alternative to a traditional forced air system. The approximate cost of a reversible multi-split air conditioner can range anywhere from $800.00 to $8,000.00.
  • Reversible Ducted Air Conditioning: Ducted air conditioning can be quite expensive, partly due to the installation cost and partly due to the fact that it requires a larger cooling capacity, as it is intended to cool the entire home. Depending on the model, the cost for the product alone can range anywhere from $600.00 all the way up to $20,000.00.

The climate in which you live will also determine which model is best suited for you. For example, living in , where the weather is habitually warm, may lead to frequent usage of your unit.

We’ve discussed product cost, but as you may know, there is also the price of installation and labor. Installation includes the install of units (indoor and outdoor), fluid and electrical connection, and finally, turning the air conditioner on and confirming it operates correctly.

Though it is not mandatory to contact a professional to install your air conditioner, it is highly recommended. If/when you should call a contractor, be sure to verify that he/she is a certified technician.
