The year 1984 saw advanced Australia Fair become our National Anthem, the 1 dollar coin come into circulation and a small family air conditioning business open its doors. Today, ActronAir is a proud Australian company recognized for making world-class air conditioners. Well, it stands to reason. The team at ActronAir experience our harsh Australian conditions first hand, and our climate places demands on air conditioning not found in other parts of the world. And that’s why ActronAir’s engineers have developed the most advanced air conditioning systems specifically for the unique and harsh Australian environment. Classic by name, classic by nature. ActronAir’s Classic is tried, tested and trusted for Australia.
Live better year round with Classic comfort
Stay cool in summer and warm in winter, live better all year round with Classic comfort control. ActronAir’s Classic ducted system is engineered to deliver better comfort with better control, to heat or cool your whole house, or just a few areas.
A Superior operating range made for Australia
Most overseas air conditioners are only designed with a maximum temperature range of 43˚C to 46˚C. The made-in-Australia for Australia Classic operates up to 50˚C. Big deal? Yes. The temperature around the outdoor unit can reach far higher than what they are saying on the weather report due to direct sun or heat radiating off the ground. They’re often located against a wall or fence where there’s low air circulation. Classic not only operates at higher temperatures, it also performs at a higher capacity leading up to that peak temperature.
Vertical discharge: The Classic’s clever outdoor unit features a vertical, rather than horizontal, discharge of air. Unlike most overseas brands, we are well aware that the side of the Australian home is not only a handy space for an outdoor unit, but is also often tight. And we know if you don’t let hot air escape it will surround the unit, reducing its performance and in turn lead to higher energy consumption. That’s why we’ve engineered the classic to release hot air upwards, rather than pushing air straight into the neighbor’s fence.
Louvered grille: The powder coated louvered grille guard allows for better airflow and protection against Australia’s extreme weather conditions. Using only the very best quality components, the Classic’s powder coated outdoor unit is engineered to withstand over 1,000 of salt spray exposure.
Here for the long haul
Coated coil protection: ActronAir uses blue fin epoxy coated protection on the Classic’s indoor and outdoor coils. It reduces corrosion from the harsh Australian conditions, as well as assisting the defrosting process, thus improving heating efficiency.
Unheard of technology
Efficient inverter fan: The highly efficient EC inverter indoor fan used in our Classic range delivers superior airflow, with quieter starting and stoping, making it perfect for sleeping babies or shift workers.
Turn on, Bliss out
A smarter start-up: In winter, some air conditioners when turned on blast out unheated air until the indoor heating coil catches up. ActronAir engineers developed a better way. Classic has a smart preheat delay function so that the coil heats up before the fan comes on. That’s better – simple and smart.
Auto-restart: Blackout? No problem. Our Classic restarts automatically in its last programmed setting once the power is restored, which means you don’t have to take the time to reprogram your system.
4 or 8 zones under your control
ActronAir builds its own controls in Australia to ensure they integrate well with your Classic and operate together seamlessly. An 8-zone touch pad is conveniently integrated into our master controller, avoiding the need for a second device on your wall to control zones. Importantly, the slimline controller is logical and user-friendly, with controls in easy to read ‘plain English’. And with a 7 day 24 hour programmable timer, it’s completely ‘set and forgot’.
And for precise comfort control, our system allows you to set the temperature in 0.5˚C degree increments. Our Classic also provides an optional secondary controller with mimic logic. it’s ideal for those who live in large or double story houses. Rather than having to trounce up and down every time you want to change the settings, our Classic allows you to setup a controller on each floor for absolute convenience.
Set your comfort remotely
The optional ActronConnect allows you to control your Classic ducted system wirelessly via smartphone or computer. Cool your house down on your way home, warm up the baby’s room or check you’ve turned off the air conditioning. it’s all in the palm of your hand.
Unlike a lot of air conditioning controls that use confusing icons and international symbols, ActronConnect is color-coded for simplicity. There’s blue for cooling, red for heating, green fan-only operation and purple for our set and forget auto function.
Classic zoning can save you money
With Classic Zoning, you can separate your house in up to 8 zones to maximize energy efficiency. Put simply, the more zones you have the more savings you can achieve. As long as you have your main r’common’ zone on to handle excess air flow, Classic zoning allows you to turn off other zones when they’re not needed, which can save you money.
Zoned to suit you
You can also use Classic Zoning to design an air conditioning solutions based on how you want to use it. For example, if you only ever need to comfort half of your house at any one time – say a ‘Day Zone’ that covers your living areas throughout the day, and a ‘NightZone’ that comforts your bedrooms overnight – then with Classic Zonning you can size your air conditioning unit based on only half the size of your house. That way you don’t waste energy cooling rooms that aren’t in use, and thanks to using a smaller unit you can live in comfort whilst also being extremely energy efficiency.
Engineered for Australia
Made with a superior operating range of -10˚C to 50˚C, and a host of innovative features, ActronAir’s Classic ducted system is engineered to withstand the hottest and coldest conditions Australia can throw at it. Where other air conditioners struggle and shut down, the Classic will be there for you when you need it most.
From zero to comfort – quickly
Our Classic also gets up to speed much faster. It’s perfect for when you arrive home on a sizzling summer’s day, or freezing winter’s night, and need to get comfy fast. A conventional inverter can take between 5 and 10 minutes to get up to full capacity, meaning it will take longer to cool or heat your space, whereas our Classic system can get up to maximum capacity almost immediately.
Local service you can count on
Our Classic is designed and manufactured in Australia, so you’ll never have to call far or wait long for service and support. Our National Service Network has service staff on the ground and parts on the shelves. They’re friendly, reliable and prompt. Furthermore, ActronAir’s 5 year warranty will keep you comfortable with absolute peace of mind.
