Aircommand Sparrow Air Conditioner


For a compact and lightweight Reverse Cycle heating and cooling option for your caravan or RV, you can't go past the Aircommand Sparrow MK4. This lightweight, durable and intelligently designed unit can provide your motor home with 1.7KW of cooling in summer, and as much as 1.7KW of heat during harsh Australian winters. Suitable for smaller caravans and pop tops with lengths up to 17ft (5m), the Sparrow MK4 is highly efficient in its functionality, thanks to features such as a defrost mechanism that allows it to operate smoothly even when outside temperatures drop to -5°C.

The low profile of this rooftop air conditioner reduces drag and allows your motor home to make it through low height clearances. Extremely lightweight at just 29kg, this unit is a highly versatile choice of air conditioner, offering ease of installation and use. Its many functions include sleep, timer and dehumidification, and can be accessed via an infrared remote control, or the system’s flip-down climate-control panel. The unit also features a solid build quality, with a base and canopy fashioned out of impact and UV-resistant polypropylene. Backed by a 3 year warranty from Dometic, the Sparrow MK4 makes any time of the year a good time for caravanning!

Note: Since the Dometic aquisition of Aircommand,  Dometic have re-released the cooling and heating ratings to bring them in line with the rest of the Dometic range according to Australian standard testing.  As a result these units are now rated as having a 1.7kW Cooling and 1.7kW Heating Capacity which is slightly less than previously advertised.

Q)   Wanting to install a roof top air conditioner on top of my pop top caravan, we need something light weight and compact. Would the Sparrow be suitable for this type of caravan?

A)   Yes, the Air Command Sparrow is the perfect roof top air conditioner for this type of caravan. The Sparrow is the most light weight, compact unit on the market and is always the first preference when installing a roof top air conditioner to a wind-up camper or pop top caravan.

Q)   We Live down south were we regularly get very low temperatures and are wanting a roof top air conditioner that will perform at maximum capacity and efficiency in these types of conditions. Is the Sparrow recomended for these types of locations?

A)   Yes, the Sparrow is highly recommended for these types of conditions as it has a in built de frost mechanism integrated enabling the unit to operate in outside temperatures as low as - 5 degrees. The Aircommand Sparrow will not leave you disappointed and will serve its purpose without any hesitancy in these cooler locations.

Q)   We have owned several roof top air conditioners in our many years of caravanning and the past two units we have had troubles with the outer plastic shroud deteriorating and cracking as we are always on the road and seems to be put to the test quiet frequently. We are interested in the Aircommand Sparrow and are wanting to know if you have any feedback on how the outer shroud hold's up?

A)   The Sparrow MK4 has been re designed and Aircommand has implemented an Impenetrable and UV resistant polypropylene external housing (outer shroud) that supersedes most units on the market. We have had no negative feedback regarding this unit's shroud cracking or deteriorating.
