Choosing the Right Sized Air Conditioner

Choosing the right air conditioner is trickier than you might think. A unit that is too small won’t cool your home sufficiently, but getting a larger model isn’t always the answer.

So it’s important to do a little bit of planning and research before you make a purchase.

3 Reasons Electrical Jobs Should NEVER be DIY

Electricity is an amazing technology. Today, we don’t really think about how much we use it until we don’t have it anymore during a black out, a brown out or electrical issues in the home. We rely on it to power every room in the house, from the light fittings to the wall socks and the appliances streaming power along wired cables. We are surrounded by electricity. It may be hard to believe it comes from a box somewhere outside or under the house, but that box can be full of its own tricks and trips. Any electrical job shouldn’t be done by yourself – the world of DIY is wonderful, but shaping a new coffee table isn’t exactly playing with lives wires and hoping for the best (based on what you saw a guy do online.)

Bulkhead Ducted Air Conditioning Systems

Bulkhead Ducted Air Conditioning Systems

This article shows the installation of Bulkhead ducted air conditioning systems in a residential house in Brisbane. It is a large multi-level house with a flat roof and transverse beams that make it impossible to install a normal ducted system. The house has 10 x ducted bulkhead systems running from 3 x Daikin Multi Outdoor units. The use of the Daikin multi outdoor units reduces the number of outdoor units required and the overall total AC capacity. The multi outdoor units are configured so as to share the daytime air conditioning load with the night time load.
