Refrigerated Cooling System in Melbourne

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 split system 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 heating & cooling 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

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.

However, 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. In this case, you may want to consider an evaporative changeover to a refrigerated system.

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, it does require more maintenance than their evaporative counterparts, which Jacob Refrigeration can help you with.

It can be difficult to decide what cooling system to commit to, but let us help explain which option to choose and why we believe a refrigerated system is the better option for Melbourne climates.

Frequently Asked Refrigerated Cooling Questions

Jacob Refrigeration are experts in providing refrigerated cooling services across Melbourne. Do you have a refrigerated cooling question? We have the answers! Read on for commonly asked queries and contact us today if you would like to discuss your options further!

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. Enquire today to discuss which system is better for your home.

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.
