What’s So Great About the Jabiru All-in-One Reverse Cycle Air Conditioner?

Controlling the temperature of one’s environment is an aspect of home not often appreciated until it is gone. Although some may consider air conditioning a type of luxury, no one can deny that nothing ruins a trip faster than suffering in blisteringly, severe heat for an extended period of time.

Some campers are proponents of using simple house conditioners for caravanning excursions. This may be alright if you plan on remaining stationary with your caravan- like parking at a caravan park- however, when traveling from location to location, a specialized caravan air conditioner is imperative.

When it comes to selecting a quality RV or caravan air conditioner, you may find yourself being bombarded with the numerous market options. The prices range randomly and it may be difficult to help differentiate what features are necessary or even worth their advertised price.

While the Jabiru All-in-One Air Conditioner can seem relatively expensive, especially when compared with lesser unit models, it is one of the few air conditioners that we can truly say is worth every single dollar.

If you’re interested in purchasing a Jabiru All-in-One conditioner or just want to learn a bit more about them, the following few paragraphs are guaranteed to provide you with some invaluable information.

What is a Reverse Cycle Air Conditioner?

In general, air conditioners function using one of two methods:

  • reverse cycling air conditioning
  • heating elements

A reverse cycle air conditioner functions by using “heat exchange”. Therefore, to cool the RV, the system moves the warmth from inside to outside. To heat the caravan, it moves the outside warmth inside.  

NOTE: If you anticipate camping in colder regions, a reverse cycle air conditioner may not necessarily be the best choice for you.  These conditioners can sometimes experience difficulties extracting enough warmth to adequately heat a caravan in colder climates.
