Nominal Capacity, Sound Pressure, EER & COP. Have you ever looked at an air conditioner brochure and wondered what all the jargon and numbers refer to? Fortunately, we’ve put together a handy guide that can help you understand the jargon and identify what system might be best for your home. Nominal Capacity Measured in Kilowatts (kW), this represents the average output capacity of the air-conditioner when used in either heating or cooling mode.

Originally invented all the way back in 1901, the first air-conditioner was installed in a printing plant to help control both the temperature and the humidity which helped maintain consistent paper dimensions and ink alignment in the machines. Today they’re installed in the majority of Aussie households and are designed to keep us comfortable all year round.

How Split Systems Can Help Remove Allergens

It’s that time of year. The days feel slightly longer, the air temp is a touch warmer and trees are flowering  – these are all tell-tale signs that Spring has arrived. If you’re an allergy sufferer however, it comes with a slightly more ominous sign – hay fever. Hay fever is the most common allergic disorder in Australia, affecting an estimated 5 million Aussie’s and causing a range of issues including itchy, red and watery eyes, runny nose, constant sneezing and severe cases, headaches and drowsiness. It’s caused by the nose and/or eyes coming into contact with environmental allergens, such as pollen, dust mites, mould and animal hair. During Spring, pollen from grasses and newly flowering trees is the main culprit and can easily set off hay fever. Many of us who suffer from hay fever during this period and especially those who suffer all year round, know that antihistamines are…
