Can you change evaporative cooling to refrigerated?
Often homeowners prefer the efficiency of refrigerated cooling after a couple of years. Making the switch may sound intimidating, which is why hiring a professional air conditioning team is important to make the process simple. Swapping to refrigerated cooling means that you will have to change the ducts and outlets to accommodate the new system. Jacob Refrigeration can do an evaporative changeover to move you to a refrigerated cooling system. Contact us so we can discuss this option with you.
Does refrigerated cooling use water?
Both refrigerated cooling and evaporative cooling use electricity. However, evaporative cooling uses water-soaked pads to cool the air while refrigerated cooling uses a refrigerant to absorb the heat. As such, windows and doors should be left open when using evaporative cooling to prevent moisture build up in the home. This is not the case for refrigerated cooling, where windows should remain closed to recirculate the air.
Is refrigerated cooling expensive to run?
Overall, refrigerated cooling systems tend to be a bit more expensive than evaporative cooling systems to run. Both require electricity to run, but evaporative cooling also uses water, which can bring the costs down depending on water usage rates. However, refrigerated cooling systems are often more effective, particularly with varying climates like Melbourne. Regular maintenance will help ensure the refrigerated cooling system is running as efficiently as possible to lower long-term costs.
Is refrigerated cooling worth it?
Absolutely. It’s reliable and great for any time of the year and any climate. As such, it’s performance doesn’t change. If you are looking for high performance and great versatility, refrigerated cooling is perfect for Melbourne’s confusing weather. At the same time, evaporative cooling is arguably cheaper, more eco-friendly and has its own pros. Ultimately, it comes down to personal preference, as both are great options.

How far in advance do I need to book?
This generally depends on the time of year, as we tend to be busier in the lead up to summer. Please expect a 1 to 2 week lead time.
What does air conditioning refrigerant smell like?
Your refrigerated cooling system should not emit a smell. If your system has a chemical smell, it is normally a sign that your cooling system is not working properly or a coolant leakage is occurring. If left alone, it can become toxic. It is best to consult an A/C specialist if you suspect that there is a chemical smell coming from your cooling system. At Jacob Refrigeration, we can help repair and maintain your system to ensure it is working well.
