Brisbane is the state capital of Queensland. Brisbane is the capital of Queensland and Australia’s third most populous city with around 2,188,908 residents.

Brisbane has a humid subtropical climate, with hot humid summers averaging 29°C with 68% relative humidity and mild winters averaging 10°C.

Thunderstorms are common in this lovely city during the summer months. Due to the hot humid weather in Brisbane, most people rely heavily on their air conditioning unit to cool down the house and provide a comfortable temperature.

Choosing the best air conditioner Brisbane is a difficult task for many people, but there are some things you can do to help ensure you choose the best one. Smaller air conditioners all come with star ratings to help you determine which model is the most efficient, while larger air conditioners such as ducted systems publish AEER & ACOP numbers to inform you of the efficiency in both heating & cooling mode.

Before purchasing an air conditioner for your home, various concerns come to mind, such as:

  • What size air conditioner do I need?
  • What type of air conditioner will best suit my home?
  • What will the power consumption/running costs of the air conditioner be?
  • How loud will the air conditioner outdoor unit be?

Read on to learn more about how to choose the best type of air conditioner for your home.

Types of Air Conditioner:

Best Air Conditioner Brisbane

Split systems, multi-split systems and reverse cycle ducted air conditioner systems are the most common types of air conditioners in Brisbane:

  • Portable air conditioner systems

A single unit that is movable from room to room but isn’t easily portable. Most have a flexible pipe that must be connected to a window to let hot air out. It’s good for rooms in households when an integrated option isn’t feasible (for example, if you’re renting). These systems tend to be noisy as both the indoor fan motor and compressor are all located within the unit which is placed inside the room to be cooled. We’ve tested several portable air conditioners, and we think the best one for most people is the TECO skinny portable air conditioner model which conveniently fits into most windows

  • Split air conditioner systems

The split air conditioner system is the most frequent form in the Brisbane rental property market as these properties normally only require cooling in one or two rooms. Splits system air conditioners have a low upfront installation cost & are perfect for cooling and heating a single room or an open-plan living area of no more than 60m2. If you need to cool multiple rooms or the whole home then you may be best looking at alternative options for air conditioning your home.

  • Multi-split Systems

This is a split system with one outside unit and two indoor units. Multi-splits are appropriate for two or three rooms that are close in proximity to one another. The benefit of this system is you only need one outdoor unit which means less wasted space around the exterior of your home for a more seamless look.

  • Ducted Air Conditioning

Ducted reverse cycle air conditioners are the ultimate whole-home heating & cooling solution, they work by distributing warm or cool air from the indoor unit throughout your home through a network of ducts installed in the roof or floor.

Smart zoning control systems such as MyAir allow you to set different temperatures in each room & also offer smartphone control. Ducted reverse cycle air conditioners are able to keep you cool and comfortable all year round and are great at reducing the overall humidity in your home.

Some brands of best air conditioner Brisbane such as Panasonic also have built-in whole-home air purification included as standard which helps improve the indoor air quality of your home whilst increasing the life expectancy of the system by keeping the internal components cleaner.

Evaporative Cooling:

Evaporative Cooling is a type of cooling that uses water to cool the air. Due to the high humidity, we experience in Brisbane Evaporative cooling systems are not very effective and would normally only be an option for climate zones that have lower humidity.

A fan within the outside unit located on your roof takes in fresh, dry air and distributes it across wet cooling pads which creates the evaporative cooling effect. The water then evaporates, resulting in cool, filtered air circulated throughout your home via vents. This sort of cooling is ideal for low humidity locations.

Brisbane’s Best Air Conditioner Brands:

It’s essential to have air conditioning in a hot and humid climate like ours. Having air conditioning installed and ready to go is key to ensuring your family does have to suffer through another uncomfortable Brisbane heatwave.

So, if you want to buy an AC in Brisbane, if your current AC needs replacing, or if you want more information about them and the best brands available, read on.

We’re going to provide you with valuable and relevant info on the best air conditioner brands in Brisbane, and also talk about these air conditioner qualities, efficacy, and profitability.

  • Panasonic

Panasonic is one of the most respected electronics companies in the world. It is well-known for its home electronics and has carved itself a niche in the air conditioning industry cementing itself as a leader in the field thanks to its excellent performance and game-changing NanoeX air purification technology. The following are some of its main characteristics:

  • High-quality air conditioner components
  • NanoeX air purification technology

Panasonic offers air purifiers that improve the home’s indoor air quality and reduce the number of airborne viruses and germs, which is very handy in keeping your family safe. This company’s price is likewise slightly higher than many other brands as it is clearly a premium product with standout features when compared with other brands. Furthermore, all models contain an inverter type compressor to improve efficiency and lower electricity bills.

  • Mitsubishi Heavy Industries

Not to be confused with Mitsubishi Electric is a different brand that bears the Mitsubishi name. Mitsubishi Heavy Industries split system air conditioners have great airflow to push air across larger rooms. Mitsubishi Heavy Industries offers both standard versions with the typical features of most air conditioners and ‘Premium’ variants with a wide choice of speeds and features. As a result, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries may be classified as a high-end brand in pricing. However, it’s also worth noting that the gadgets’ low noise levels and all of their features stand out. 

  • Fujitsu General

Fujitsu is a well-known and well-established air conditioning company in the market. It is, without a doubt, one of the most comprehensive product and range offerings. It also offers three areas to pick from for its most popular type, wall-mounted air conditioners: Classic, Lifestyle, and Designer. The Classic collection is made to be quick, efficient, and simple to use. The Lifestyle series is the most energy-efficient while still visually pleasing, attempting to fit into the home’s décor. Finally, the Designer range offers the most excellent quality and a clean, modern aesthetic design, and far more features and functionality than the other two.

  • Samsung

Samsung offers a wide range of air conditioning solutions with a cooling capacity ranging from 2.5kW to 20kW across split systems, cassettes & ducted air conditioners.

The split system range also includes a turbo option that allows them to quickly attain the appropriate temperature, whether it’s warmer or colder. In addition, a sleep function mode automatically changes the temperature, airflow, and speed to the proper settings. It contains a 24-hour programmable timer that allows you to preset an operating schedule for your device, which is helpful if you are regularly away from home.

Ducted systems vary from 7.1 kW to 20 kW models and offer solutions for every style and size of home in Brisbane

Samsung air conditioners are priced competitively and offer good value for money.

  • LG

The LG brand provides a wide choice of air conditioners, including standard wall-mounting methods, split systems, ducting, and multi-splits, to suit users’ preferences. Furthermore, they all offer the option of using “Active Energy Control” to set an energy consumption restriction and therefore be more efficient. In addition, you may purchase Wi-Fi Smart Control as an add-on for compatible models. The ultra-low operating mode sound, silent outdoor mode, outdoor unit noise reduction, multiple filtration systems, and self-cleaning are among its most popular characteristics. In addition, it has a strong reputation for dependability and value for money.

After doing a good research, I found Smart Air Electrical prices the most competitive. The team presented good options depending on my budget so I ended up getting the Teco System with a 7 year warranty. The low price range was most attractive. It was also good to get 10% discount as well- so I saved another $900. The crew that installed the AC were very professional. They spent the whole day in my house and were very respectful. I am now enjoying cool air.
