Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What does ‘Reverse Cycle’ mean?
A: Reverse Cycle refers to a single system that can provide both heating and cooling.
Q: What is an Inverter system?
A: Inverter systems have a compressor that can vary its speed, which can be more effective in controlling the temperature. Depending on how the system is used, running costs can also be reduced. Inverter systems are also generally quieter when operating, but they do cost a little more.
Q: What size air conditioning system do I need?
A: It is important to get the right size. A system that is too small will have to work too hard and too long to reduce the temperature and remove the humidity from the air. A system that is too small will end up costing you more in increased power bills. A correctly sized air conditioning system will bring the temperature down steadily over a period of time and do it more efficiently and economically. The best way to work out the size of system you need is to have P&M Rossiter carry out a Calculated Heatload Estimate on your home, office or building. This takes into account important factors such as room size, exposure to solar load (number of windows, exposure to western sun etc), the level of insulation in walls or ceiling and the building materials used in construction.
Q: How often does my air conditioning system require servicing?
A: For commercial clients, every month is preferred. For residential customers that use their air conditioning sparingly, once a year is generally enough. Gas charges, electrical connections, electronics and drains are just a few of the checks carried out during a service. Regular checks keep your system clean and healthy.
Q: How can I pay for my air conditioning unit?
A: P&M Rossiter accepts VISA, MasterCard, eftpos, cheque, cash and direct credit. Fees apply for credit card payments.
