Ducted air conditioning is a system that delivers cool or warm air from an external fan into multiple rooms through ducts in the ceiling.
These units are most effective if you wish to heat or cool the entire house at any one time.
Split systems are units that are installed on the wall of a room. Generally used to heat or cool a specific room only. Instead of ducting the pipes are connected to an outdoor unit which is used to dissipate the heat or coolness from the area outside.
We recommend an annual service on both ducted and split systems to ensure the unit longevity. A service and regular cleaning will ensure you get the most out of your system and enjoy it for years to come.
During hot weather make sure to turn your air conditioner on earlier. Do not wait until the middle of the day when it is hottest as this will make your air conditioner work harder. Adjust the louvres on split systems so they disperse down when heating and up when cooling. Clean the filters regularly.

Smoke alarms are essential in every home. In 2009 it became compulsory for all houses being sold or rented to have smoke alarms fitted. Smoke alarms need to be changed every 10 years. For safety, smoke alarms are fitted with a back-up battery. The smoke alarm will beep every 60 seconds for a minimum of 7 days when the battery needs replacing. Smoke alarms must be regularly tested to ensure the alarm and batteries are operating efficiently. We recommend testing every few months and cleaning thoroughly once a year.
A Residual Current Device is a life-saving investment for your family home. It effectively reduces the risk of electric shock and should be fitted to all power points and lighting circuits in your home. To ensure the RCD is working, the test button must be pressed every 3 months.
