What is a reverse cycle air conditioner?

A Reverse Cycle Air Conditioner, or Reverse Air, is another term for a heat pump system which refers to a unit that functions for both heating and cooling.  

Whether it’s for your whole home or just controlling the climate of just the room you are using, reverse air is a popular choice and you can have the option of different reverse-cycle air conditioner units such as ducted, split, window etc.

Working on the “heat pump principle“, a reverse cycle aircon will pump heat from one location to another, using this process:

  1. Drawing hot air for your home or office, which is then passed over a cold liquid, which is called a refrigerant. The heat is absorbed from the air, cooling it before it is pushed back into your home or office.
  2. Warmed up from the hot air, the refrigerant blows into a compressor, creating a gas.
  3. This gas is then pumped outside of your home or office, via a heat exchanger. This allows heat to escape, while the refrigerant liquefies and cools.
  4. Flowing through an expansive device that lowers its pressure, the refrigerant is cooled more, allowing it to absorb additional heat.
  5. A reverse air conditioning unit has the ability to literately reverse the process, allowing it to function for both heating and cooling.



If you want the option of cooling and heating from one system,
