Choosing The Right Air Conditioner For Your Cairns Home

Choosing The Right Air Conditioner For Your Cairns Home

Cairns residents are no strangers to heat.

When summertime comes around, locals flood to the beach, backyard pools, ice cream parlours - and finally - back home to avoid the sun.

So, for those warm, balmy nights and even hotter days, a high-quality air conditioning system is a necessity. When choosing the right air conditioner in Cairns for your home, Alphacool is here to help you make an educated decision.

Take a look at our blog post below to see which A/C system is right for you and your family.


A split system air conditioner is a single room system that’s split into two parts: the indoor unit and the outdoor unit.

Ideal for small apartments and homes, the split system air conditioner is the affordable and practical solution for single residents, couples and small families in Cairns.

Benefits of a split system includes:

• Quick & easy installation
• Quiet operation
• Easy to operate
• Cost-effective
• Air purification (preventing allergen & dust circulation)

When choosing air conditioning in Cairns, Alpha Cool is here to clear the air and provide you with the right option for your home.

Get in touch with us today to see if a split system air conditioner will cool your home adequately.


A multi split air conditioning system can have multiple indoor units connected to one outdoor unit (unlike a single split that only has one indoor unit).

At Alphacool, we supply and install a wide range of multi split air conditioners to suit your residential property.

The benefits include:

• Energy efficiency
• Flexibility (different capabilities depending on room of home)
• Convenience (adjusting temperature to suit particular room)
• Cheaper than ducted
• Extra air outlets can be installed later on if required
• Easy to operate


Unlike a split system, a ducted air conditioner is able to cool your entire home through one central system. A single unit is installed in a hidden location (generally under the roof) and then distributes the air to multiples rooms at once through a series of ducts.

Simply put, ducted air conditioners are beneficial for larger homes with multiple rooms.

There’s also a range of practical and aesthetic benefits including:

• More energy efficient
• Cheaper utility bills
• Unit is hidden from sight
• Whisper-quiet operation
• Versatility of cooling one or several rooms at once
• Adds value to your home or investment property

If ducted sounds like the right system for your home, contact the experts at Alpha Cool today to discuss further.
