No laughing please and excuse us! We realise that for a born and bred Queenslander, winter is still the cooler months of the year.
If you live in South East Queensland, as we do, you are blessed with lovely warm, sometimes expiring summers, and temperate winters.
This does not mean that it does not get cold here though! Overnight and cloudy overcast day temperatures can still bring our balmy winter temperatures plummeting to single figure digits or less.
Luckily, the winter months are over before we know it so we do not need to expend vast amounts of time and money heating our homes.
Economical, Discreet, and Reverse Cycle
The wonders of technology are producing better and more economical air conditioning options every day. Far more than in the past.
It used to be that running an air conditioner was a pastime only the wealthy could and would consider. This is certainly not the case with the introduction of the inverter driven style of air conditioner.
These little beauties offer the best of both worlds, having the ability to heat your home during the cooler months but also to keep you cool and comfortable during the summer months.
This is because they work with the surrounding ambient heat to produce both heating and cooling options.
At MJG Air we supply, install and service only the very best products to ensure the complete satisfaction of our customers.

To get the absolute best out of whatever choice you make to heat and cool your home there is a couple of things you can do to enhance its performance.
Insulation is a key factor in containing warmth in the winter and coolness in the summer. It is essential to insulate your roof cavity with the best product you can afford. If you can, it is also a good idea to carry this insulation into the walls.
Block any drafts that may exist around doors and window seals. Even a rolled up towel at the bottom of a door can reduce a nasty draft.
Window coverings and pelmets go a long way to keeping the warmth in during the winter and keeping the heat out during the summer.
A good window dressing will cover the entire window top to bottom and touch the walls at each side of the window to create a space in which to trap outside temperature and prevent it affecting the performance of your air conditioner.
