Reverse Cycle Air Conditioners Sunshine Coast- When Only The Best Will Do!

A reverse cycle air conditioner can heat as well as cool, and will have you prepared for whatever conditions the Sunshine Coast throws at you – at work or at home.

At The Cool Shop, we are the Sunshine Coast Daikin reverse cycle air conditioning specialists. A Daikin reverse cycle air conditioning system, planned and installed by us, is one of the most efficient ways to cool or heat your home with electricity.

Reverse cycle air conditioners absorb heat from the outdoor air to warm the air inside; an energy efficient heating technique. It also absorbs heat from the inside air and dissipates it outside, leaving your home cooler and, thanks to advanced Daikin technology, can do so up to around 46 degrees Celsius.

The Cool Shop can help with all of your Sunshine Coast reverse cycle air conditioning needs including ducted air conditioning, Daikin split systems or a multi split system.

Sometimes it can get a little hard to choose the right air conditioner for our home.

Just consider this: if you have something that only cools down your house, winter season will be very uncomfortable.

On the other hand, if you have something that only warms up your house, summer season will be unbearable, especially with the humidity we experience her on the Sunshine Coast.

That is why the reverse cycle air conditioning is the best option for your home.

So, what is a Reverse Cycle Air Conditioner? And how exactly does it work?

What is Reverse Cycle Air Conditioning?

Reverse Cycle Air Conditioning is a style of Air Conditioning that performs both heating and cooling functions. Unlike other similar systems, this Reverse Air Conditioning method allows the user to either cool down a house in the summer or warm it up in the winter using a single device.

This method of Air Conditioning is a blessing on the Sunshine Coast because we can have very different seasons. Even if the  that summer or winter does not last long.

Moreover, a Reverse Cycle Air Conditioning System not only can use the refrigeration and reversed refrigeration cycles, but it also can filter and dehumidify the air, making your environment more clean, pleasant, and healthy. With Daikin’s special filtration system, this a bonus for you and your family.

How does Reverse Cycle Air Conditioning work?

A device commonly known as “Heat Pump” is the one that performs the Reverse Cycle Air Conditioning and it was designed to work under the “Heat Exchange” Principle.

In this way, the Heat Pump absorbs the heat from the outside air even in cold winter nights and transfers it inside.

Therefore, Reverse Cycle Air Conditioners differs from other similar systems because they use a Fluid (refrigerant gas) for the Heat Exchange whereas others create heat by using electricity.

But what is a Heat Pump?

A Heat Pump is a device that has the capability to use the refrigeration cycle to cool down an internal environment and reverse this cycle to warm it up.

This device transfers heat by circulating a chemical substance called “Refrigerant”. This refrigerant is a fluid that easily transfers Heat Energy during a change of Physical State – from gas to liquid and back again.

This means that, if the Refrigerant is moved around using a pump and its physical state is changed, then heat energy will be absorbed and rejected, allowing heat to be transferred from one place to another.

For this reason, a Heat Pump has four main parts:

  • Compressor: Pump for moving around the Refrigerant
  • Condenser: Coil that turns the Refrigerant from Gas into Liquid
  • Restriction Device: Device that turns Liquid into a Liquid Vapor Mixture
  • Evaporator: Coil that turns the Refrigerant from Liquid into GaS

So how does the heat pump works in the reverse cycle?

Heat pumps also have a Reversing Valve which is the magical mechanical device that allows Reverse Cycle Air Conditioning Systems to perform both heating and cooling functions.

It is this, because the Reversing Valve changes -reverses- the direction of the flow of refrigerant, which changes the direction of Heat Transfer.

As a consequence of this, the Heat Pump uses a Fan to move warm air and capture its heat through the refrigerant and then move it from inside to outside your house allowing you to have cool air.

Then, if you need to heat up your house, the Reversing Valve will change the direction of the Heat Transfer, so the heat from the outside air will be transferred inside the house.

This process will repeat over and over again allowing you to maintain a comfortable temperature.
