The amount that each household or business spends on heating and cooling could make up a significant amount of one’s energy bills. The Victorian Energy Upgrades (VEU) program is designed to help households replace and upgrade old heating and cooling systems with more energy-efficient ones. Doing so will help significantly reduce the costs and energy use associated with heating and cooling. All Climate Solutions is proud to partner with an approved supplier for the VEU Home Heating and Cooling Upgrades Program run by the Victorian Government to help households across Melbourne get the most energy-efficient heating and cooling systems they need.

Choosing the Right Reverse Cycle Air Conditioner for Your Needs
Every household is unique and has different heating and cooling requirements, making it important to choose the correct type of air conditioning system. Not installing the correct system size could not give you the heating or cooling experience you need. A system too small may not give you enough heating or cooling power for your home, while a system too large could be more expensive to purchase and run.
Here are the types of reverse-cycle air conditioners available in the market:
Single-Split – one outdoor unit connected to one indoor unit, suitable for a single room or open plan area.
Multi-split – one outdoor unit connected to multiple indoor units, suitable for multiple rooms or whole-of-home.
Ducted – one central outdoor unit connected to multiple indoor rooms through ducts and vents, suitable for whole-of-home.
Not all climate control products and systems offered are eligible for the VEU program. Please contact us to find out more information about the best systems suited for this program.
Recommended Size for Reverse Cycle Air Conditioner
It’s always important to take into consideration the size of space you’re looking to heat or cool. In this case, the ‘size’ of a reverse cycle air conditioning system refers to its heating and cooling output, normally measured in kilowatts (kW). The table below provides a guide to the system size you may need for a particular room size:
Recommended Size for Ducted Systems
While ducted systems are a highly effective way of heating or cooling a home, it could cost more to install and run them. As the right ducted system size is dependent on several factors, we highly recommend you speak with our ducted system experts to find out more.
- Zoning – Depending on the ducted system, zoning might be an essential element in order for the system to run, and at other times it can be a detriment. Speak to our ducted system specialists to find out what’s best for you.
- Ducting – Speak to your installer to ensure your new ducting is appropriately insulated and correctly sized for your heating and cooling needs.
