Refrigerated Cooling Systems

Refrigerated Cooling in Melbourne

Cooling units are practically an essential component of Australia’s warmer months, and when it comes to regulating temperatures, you can’t get much better than a refrigerated cooling system. These systems get their name from the fact that they use refrigerants to cool the air within a space. As you may guess from the name, this is a very similar process to how refrigerators stay cool. At Jacob Refrigeration, we offer over 35 years of experience in both air conditioning and refrigeration services. So, no matter what your specific requirements may be with your refrigerated cooling system, our specialists are here to help. Enquire with us today for a free quote.

What is Refrigerated Cooling?
The Different Types

Did you know that heatwaves are responsible for more deaths every year compared to any other disaster? Naturally, investing in refrigerated cooling has become a necessity. However, as with any aircon unit, not all will be created equal or with the same goal in mind. For example, whilst wall or cassette units will be perfect for treating a room or enclosed space, others will be designed to treat multiple rooms at once, such as multi-head or ducted systems. There is also a third category of refrigerated cooling systems, including package and VRF units, which will be ideal for larger more commercial-oriented use. When choosing a system, it’s important to know which you’ll require, and which you already have when organising your repairs.

Refrigerated Heating and Cooling Systems

Advancements in technology have led to refrigerated heating and cooling systems becoming more common and accessible over the years. By allowing you to reverse the flow of refrigerant within the system, a unit is able to provide both heating and cooling, allowing for far more convenient and comprehensive control of temperature throughout a space. These units are also known for being quite efficient, both in their use of space and in the amount of heating and cooling provided compared to the amount of electricity that the system consumes.

Evaporative Vs Refrigerated Cooling: What’s the Difference?

As with most situations where there is more than one valid option to choose from, both evaporative and refrigerated cooling systems have their pros and cons when compared. They also, whilst on a surface level providing the same service, are quite different in terms of how they function and operate:

How Does Evaporative Cooling Work?

Evaporative cooling systems are connected to the roof of your home, often with a number of vents and ducts between your home’s interiors and the system itself. The system contains moistened pads that cool and add moisture to the warm air as it passes through from the outside, thereby conditioning the air within your home. This is why they are often the preferred choice in dry climates with little moisture in the air, as this process creates a sense of cool humidity within the area in which it’s set up.

All that said, evaporative cooling is not without its drawbacks, mostly stemming from its reliance on external factors. For example, to be properly effective, evaporative cooling requires windows to be open so the warm air can be pushed out. You’re also pulling a lot of air from the outside world, so the type of air and conditioning you end up receiving will be slightly different based on the conditions of the outside world.

How Does Refrigerated Cooling Work?

Unlike evaporated cooling which takes air from the outside, refrigerated cooling requires an enclosed system, regulating the air that is already within the room or space it is set up within. This makes it perfect for any climate and any time of year, and therefore, one of the more popular choices for both heating and cooling. However, compared to the previous option, refrigerated cooling systems are a bit more costly to run, and require more maintenance than their evaporative counterparts.

Both have their benefits in different situations, and both will benefit some people more than others. That’s why it’s important to think about what your requirements are prior to making a final decision on the type of cooling you’re committing to.

Is refrigerated cooling expensive to run?

Refrigerated cooling is considered slightly more effective, as mentioned above. However, it does tend to cost more to maintain as evaporative cooling uses less electricity to run.

Is refrigerated cooling worth it?

Absolutely. It’s reliable and great for any time of the year and any climate, 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.
