What is more suitable in a multi-storey house: evaporative cooling or reverse cycle air conditioning?


Whatever type of house you’re in, the most important aspect to consider when it comes to cooling systems is its design. Both multi storey and single-storey homeshave different requirements for the air volume to drive through the system to be effective.

To cast some light, let’s take a look at each system’s upsides.

The benefits of reverse cycle air conditioning

  • Reverse cycle air conditioning is a much rather chosen alternative by consumers for home comfort. With just one quick press, you can either heat or cool the entire place or a specific area.
  • Lower energy bills. This is why it’s considered one of the most effective systems for heating.
  • It’s a two in one system.You are no longer required to purchase and install separate systems for heating and cooling.
  • It’s safe to use on homes.You don’t have to worry about exposed elements or flames.
  • It’s durable. With maintenance, a reverse cycle air conditioning system can last up to 20 years.
  • Multipurpose. It does not only cool and heat your home but also filter and dehumidify air hence, enhances air quality inside your home.

In short, not only will you be comfortable no matter what the weather is but you’ll also enjoy lower electrical and maintenance bills.

The upsides of evaporative cooling

Here are some notable benefits your house and family can get from an evaporative cooling system.

  • There’s a lower usage of energy.
  • It is eco-friendly and utilises lesser electricity, resulting to a lesser greenhouse gas production.
  • The air inside is never recirculated. This means you only breathe the freshest air possible.
  • Evaporative cooling is considered one of the safest choices to cooling your home because it only uses clean and fresh air.
  • The cool air it emits is never dry or warm; hence you never have to experience sore eyes, sore throat or dry skin.
  • You can enjoy any season of the year without worrying about your kids or any members of the family leaving the doors or windows open.
