The major benefit is to give a comfortable environment at home or the office throughout the year. An air conditioning unit has a number of functions including heating, cooling, dehumidifying and fan only. This will enable you to set the temperature and the unit will cool or heat as required or in the case of dehumidification, the unit will get rid of the moisture in the air without dropping the room temperature which is beneficial for those with respiratory illnesses like asthma.
Your air conditioning sizing requirements will vary subject to a number of factors. These factors include the aspect positioning of your house, the material the house is made of such as brick veneer, double brick or weatherboard. The location and size of windows and the covering on these windows and whether the house in insulated. These factors all have a large bearing on the appropriate sizing. To be sure you purchase the unit that best suits your situation we always recommend you discuss your specific requirements with your nearest Miraco retailer to be found in our Stockists section on this site or a qualified installer.

Dependable Miraco products are among the longest lasting heating and cooling products available. For your specific equipment, there are many variables that affect life expectancy: -
• the regularity of routine maintenance. Leads to increasing remaining lifespan of your system. • stability of electrical currents one of the most important factor. • Right selection of AC capacity verses the place size and thermal loads.
All Miraco Residential and light commercial air conditioners have 5-year domestic warranty on manufacturing faults maintenance and user faults, electricity failures, natural disaster are not covered. it’s recommended the filters be cleaned every 2 weeks or at least once a month. In addition, a professional tradesperson should clean the unit at least once a year; this should be done before Summer to avoid long servicing delays during the Summer period
Allowance must be made for drainage from the indoor unit on cooling mode and outdoor unit on heating mode. Positioning of the indoor unit is important and should not inhibit the flow of air from the unit. Where possible the unit should be placed centrally on a wall directing the airflow to the center of the room. The outdoor unit must be positioned in a well-ventilated area on a solid footing and must be easily accessible for servicing purposes. Correct installation is vital to ensure the performance of the unit. As installation faults may void manufacturer warranties, only qualified air conditioning installers should carry out this work.
Make sure the unit you purchase is correctly sized allowing the unit to cycle off when the correct temperature is reached. This allows for the compressor to switch on and off as required rather than running continuously. Set your temperature set point so that you feel comfortable rather than cold. Most of us feel comfortable at between 24 and 26 degrees in summer. Consider insulating the ceiling so that you may be able to use a smaller capacity unit. Make sure the unit is securely mounted to avoid unnecessary vibration. Mounting through the wall will generally give a more secure install than through glass. Maintain the filters of your air conditioner on a regular basis and in the case of split systems, have your unit serviced by a qualified tradesperson at least every two years depending on the environment the unit is installed in, some units require a professional service once a year.
Is the unit going to be sitting on a concrete path or in a garden? Concrete paths are a highly reflective surface and will allow sound to travel further. A condensing unit mounted close to an adjacent wall will allow sound to be reflected off multiple surfaces making the sound louder. Be sure to have maximum clearances around the outdoor unit, so there is no chance of the hot air from the outdoor being recirculated back into the outdoor unit especially if there is a wall directly opposite the unit. As this can cause the unit to overheat and fail especially on hot days. Is the condensing unit going to be located under a carport or roofed entertainment area? These areas are more reflective of sound. Is the condensing unit mounted on wall support on a wall? Make sure the unit is well isolated from the wall so as to avoid unnecessary vibration. Placing the outdoor unit in direct sunlight makes the outdoor unit work harder. Location of the outdoor unit must be easily accessible.
Horsepower is a measure of the rating of a compressor and does not relate to the cooling capacity of an air conditioner. Use watts or B.T.U. Most of us feel comfortable at between 24 degrees and 26 degrees and at a humidity level of 60% to 75% in Summer and 55% to 70% in Winter. Over sizing is just as bad as under sizing as the unit may cycle off before the appropriate amount of dehumidification has occurred. Installation is important. If a unit fails due to a problem with the installation (faulty flare connections etc.) it will not be covered under the warranty.
