Heating and Cooling in Brisbane
Depending on where in Brisbane you buy or build your home, your air conditioning needs may be varied. Generally the best time to design and install an air conditioning solution for your needs in during the design and build phase. That way you can prepare the electrical supply system, unit location, and type of air conditioning solution. Your heating and cooling air conditioning needs can be quite different depending on location, aspect, building materials and budget.
Designing your homes heating and cooling
By far the best time to be thinking about your heating and cooling needs in when you are designing your floor layout and your electrical plans. When in the building phase of your home, you have the perfect time to consider the full suite of options for your air conditioning.
It is at this stage you can consider;
- Ducted air conditioning / zoned air conditioning (including where doors should be)
- Split system air conditioners
- Inverter air conditioners
- integration with fans.
By planning the air conditioning, you can also look for interaction with your lighting plans, your window locations and your electrical plan.
Fans and remote control fans
Every time I have built I have always installed a fan wire to every light switch. Although with down lights installed, quite often this is redundant, as with remote control fans these fan wires are not required. Not everyone likes or wants extra remote controls, and so I prefer to just install a fan wire to give all options for wiring.
Down Light Locations for fans
If you are going to install fans into rooms, then it is critical to layout your down lights outside of the fan blade area. Otherwise it can feel like a disco is happening in your lounge room. With down light installed, it is often better to seek low profile fans without a light.
Buying a Spec Built Home
When buying a newly build spec home, you will often find that the house does not come with any air conditioning installed, and quite often not even fans. In Brisbane, fans and air conditioning definitely need to be considered. Once window screens and screen doors have been installed to catch a breeze, fans are the next best option in bedrooms, the living room, and the outdoor patio. For humid days and the peak summer months, air conditioners though in a closed house are required. For a spec built home, often the wiring and layout of these features are overlooked.
