Changing your evaporative system to reverse cycle air conditioning

Recently we have been receiving many enquiries from customers who have an existing evaporative system and wish to change to reverse cycle (heating and cooling).

Generally, a breakdown of their current system is a catalyst for looking to change to reverse cycle air conditioning, but the greatest concern that customer have is that their evaporative system is no longer efficient and reliable at cooling and heating their home.

While evaporative systems are cheap to run they are certainly not efficient on humid days as the added humidity in the air, combined with the moisture the evaporative system produces, takes the air inside the house to saturation point, which gives you that uncomfortable clammy feeling you would be aware of.

The advantage of reverse cycle air conditioning over evaporative air conditioning is that you have total control over the temperature, with the added benefit of using your reverse cycle system for heating in the cooler months. Another bonus is that Reverse cycle air conditioning also removes the moisture from the air on those humid days.

The efficiency of reverse cycle is continually improving at a rapid rate thanks to better performing systems, continual product improvement by manufacturers, as well as advanced control systems that allow you to control temperature and air flow to every area of the house. Reverse cycle air conditioning is more expensive to run when compared to evaporative cooling so it is important to research the varying controls and brands that are available in order to minimise the running costs which you will now inherit once you make a selection. While the purchase price is obviously an issue to consider, the running cost is the ongoing cost that you will be paying every quarter for the next 10 to 15 years. A cheap system will be generally more expensive to run.

Crispair offer a total turnkey solution to change from evaporative to reverse cycle systems. The changeover is all performed in one day. For more information, please give our friendly and informative sales team a call to answer any further questions that you may have.

We were in the market for a new reverse cycle air conditioner as ours was outdated and had blown out. We spoke with Crispair at the Home Show and Paul Cameron came out and did a thorough survey of what was in place and supplied us with a quotation for a brand new Panasonic unit. Paul was very thorough and explained that we needed a full replacement due to age and inefficiency of the previous installation. The install was quick and tidy by the Crispair team. Yesterday was the first 40 degree day and WOW what a difference, we are totally amazed at how cool the house is. iZone controls are so easy to use and the zoning is perfect. I have no hesitation in recommending Crispair. Thank you Paul and the team! Susan and Shane Imgrund - Jandakot.

We've actually used Crispair twice, once for a business installation for a server room and the second time for a full home replacement. On both occasions they had excellent customer service and installations were to a very high standard.Visited the show room a number of times and always very helpful and informative. The day of the home installation went brilliantly, guys rocked up bang on time and worked through the day into the evening. Because of problems removing the old unit (that was badly installed) the installation took a bit longer than planned so they worked as late as possible then came back first thing the next day to finish it off. Left the house very clean and tidy and were very mindful of us having a newborn baby. Would definitely recommend Crispair and will certainly use them again in the future.
