Q: What is an inverter outdoor unit?
A: Power from a wall socket is AC (Alternating Current). Outdoor unit motors with an inverter run DC (Direct Current). An Inverter is used to control the speed of the compressor motor, to continuously regulate the temperature. The DC Inverter units have a variable drive that comprises an adjustable electrical inverter to control the speed of the motor, which means the compressor and the cooling / heating output.
Q: Why is an inverter outdoor unit good?
A: An inverter airconditioner are more precise. Non inverter AC provides a fix heating or cooling by a fixed power with the compressor running at a fixed speed. On the other hand inverter aircon have a controllable compressor that provides the exact amount of heating and cooling as needed.
Q: What is a “split system”?
A: Split systems are very popular. A split system is ‘split’ into two units: one that’s inside, and one that’s outside. Relatively easy to install (as no ductwork is required), these systems are known for being quiet and energy efficient.
Q: What is a “mulit-split system”?
A: This is a split system where there’s more than one indoor unit attached to a single outdoor unit. The advantage of a multi-split system is that you can use it to heat or cool different areas of the house independently.
Q: What is Ducted system?
A: Ducted systems include an internal fan coil installed into the roof space of a house. From this central location, a series of ducts are installed in multiple locations throughout the house, allowing you to heat and cool different areas of the home easily. This provides discreet air conditioned comfort as the only visible components are the return air grilles, discharge grilles and controller.
Q: What is Zoning?
A: This referes to a ducted air-conditioning system and is a method of heating or cooling different rooms within one house independently. This is done by opening and closing dampers within ducts in each zone.
Q: What is R410A?
A: A non-ozone depleting refrigerant or fluid that transfers heat energy between the indoor and outdoor units of the air conditioning system.
Q: What is R-32?
A: R-32 is a successor to the R-410A refrigerant, R-32 is also non-ozone depleting and has 66% lower global warming potential (GWP) factor than R-410A.
Q: What is a hydronic system?
A: A hydronic system uses water as the heat-transfer heating systems. Hydronic piping system is used to circulate hot water (or chilled water in some systems) with the connections between the piping and the base units made in a series loop.
Q: What is HVAC?
A: Heating, ventilation and air conditioning. This acronym refers to the entire industry that surrounds air conditioning.
Q: What is a lossnay ventilation?
A: Lossnay Fresh Air Ventilation system works by extracting stale air from inside your house to remove damp, odours, dust, bacteria and gasses. This air is then replaced with allergen reduced fresh air from outside.
