Key Features

Filter Notification Output

Sets timeframes for filter use - once the timeframe is met, the system can alert you to change filters, streamlining servicing action to only when required.

Phase Protection

This feature is built into Variable Capacity Commercial systems automatically preventing the system from operating in the event of loss of power on one or more phases, or in instances of low voltage. This protects the system from potential damage.

Fault notification output

This is an alert you to make users aware of any faults, in turn making servicing of the system more efficient, resulting in less system downtime.

Pitched roof

This feature is specifically designed to prevent water from pooling on the unit, minimising the chance of like rust and mould.

Fast Start Up

The Tru-Inverter gets to the desired temperature faster, smoother and is built to maintain it to within ±0.3oC at the sensor location. The Variable Capacity Commercial series can get up to maximum capacity of five times faster than conventional systems, ideal for extreme weather days.

Simple Installation

Packaged systems are available in both Under and Over and Side-by-Side left and right air handing configurations and have added drain connections to the condenser compartment in addition to the evaporation compartment for ease of application.

Perfect for Australian temps

Living in the Outback of NSW we experience 40 degree days regularly, ActronAir air conditioner cooled the house easily. Great purchase and a great product for our conditions, would recommend highly.

Excellent unit, exceptionally quiet internally and copes well in the 40+ deg temperatures

The main things I like about the unit is the exceptionally quiet internal noise, the units ability to cope with the extreme heat in summer and the efficiency. When we replaced our ageing ducted system, our power bills reduced by about 5% – 10%, so the system must be highly efficient. The other issue I like about the system is because it is a digital compressor, it can run down to 10% of its rated capacity as opposed to about 40% for a inverter system so we can air condition one room if required. We have had the system for 9 years with one failure. I learnt to use only genuine Actron service for repairs. I would definitely purchase another Actron system if I required another system.

The best decision everrr

The unit copes very well with the demands placed on it, even in extreme weather and when cooling both zones simultaneously. Also, the controls are also very easy to use.
