Townsville Air Conditioning Considerations

It’s clear Townsville is Hot. Every year the tropical climate keeps our homes and business at a warm temperature. Air conditioning in Townsville is a must, so let me answer some key questions.

We’ll cover:

  • Air conditioning installation

Air conditioning installation

Installation of air conditioning in Townsville has a number of considerations. We’ll make the assumption you’ll be installing a split-system air conditioner to an existing home or business.

Firstly, the room size will decide what kilowatt air conditioner you’ll need. A 3 meter by 3 meter (3mx3m) room will suit a 2.5kw system, 5mx5m room will suit a 3.5kw system, 7.1kw system suits a 7mx7m room. I wrote a guide on air conditioning room size in 2019 to help you calculate what size air conditioner you need precisely, as the above is only an estimate. 

The second consideration for air conditioning installation is the location of the outside unit or compressor. A split system comes with two components, the internal unit or wall-mounted unit and the external unit or outdoor compressor. See air conditioning installation example below.

Outdoor Compressor location

Outdoor compressors are much quieter than they used to be, however, you still need to think strategically about where to mount it. 

Back to back installations are the most affordable, but not always the best decision.   

Thirdly, wall-mounted units should be located to maximise airflow, especially due to the hot humid conditions in Townsville

Caution: You’ll need to engage a licensed electrician to perform the connection of a split system air conditioner to electricity.
