Product Description

Dometic Aircommand Sparrow Mk4 Roof Top Air Conditioner: A full-featured, lightweight yet powerful and efficient roof top air conditioner.

The Sparrow Mk4 reverse cycle heat pump roof top air conditioner is a lightweight rooftop style unit.  It is the ideal air conditioner for smaller recreational vehicles up to 5 metres in length.

A reverse cycle air conditioner has unmatched efficiency and provides one of the most economical forms of heating. The Sparrow provides both heating and cooling as well as filtered and dehumidified air.

Its lightweight design makes it suitable for a range of applications that the bigger units are unable to achieve.

Key Featrues:

  • Compact Dimensions and super low profile making it very versatile
  • The refrigerative heat pump operation produces up to 70% more heat than element type units
  • Ultra low profile ensures less drag when towing and greater clearance under your carport or garage
  • Automatic de-ice setting for low ambient heating operation.
  • Infra-red remote control with sleep timer
  • flip down climate control panel
  • Dehumidify functionality
  • UV-resistant polypropylene canopy
  • Weather collar for simpler installation

Installation Comments:  Fitting and Install instructions come with the unit, but it is advised a qualified installer (electrical contractor) undertakes the installation.

Product Faqs

Ask a Question

  • Q:Which generator should I be using for this Air Con unit? Can I use a Yamaha 2000w or do I need a Yamaha 2400w?
    A:

    Hi - the technical departments of the air conditioning brands will typically recommend a 2400w or 2800w inverter generator for most models. In our experience, the Yamaha EF2400iS is the best generator model to run caravan air-conditioners. It has the capacity to handle the startup power requirements when the A/C compressor kicks in.

    Some people will use a 2000w generator for smaller air-conditioner models, but it is worth noting that any generator's capacity is reduced as ambient temperature gets higher (often when you most need an A/C) and when the extension leads get beyond 3-4 metres. This is often when you need more than 2000 watts. So again, we would recommend the Yamaha EF2400iS to run most caravan air-conditioners, or the Yamaha EF2800i if you need a bit more power.  

    The last thing worth noting is that Dometic have recently released (as at Jun 2016) a new model of Air Conditioner called the Dometic Harrier Inverter Rooftop Air Conditioner – it’s the first model to use an inverter compressor in a Caravan Air Con application, which significantly reduces start up requirement. The Harrier model will comfortably start and run from a 2000w generator. This new A/C model may be worth considering if it fits your van and your requirements.

     

  • Q:What is the difference between ‘reverse cycle’ caravan air conditioners and ‘heating element’ caravan air conditioners?
    A:

    Hi, great question. These descriptions relate to how the heating/cooling works in air conditioners. ‘Heat Exchange’ units use heat exchange to cool and an electrical heat element to warm. It’s not the most efficient heating method, but it works no matter how cold it is outside.


    Reverse cycle units are the more common type and they use a compressor whether heating or cooling. This is more efficient method but for some models can be an issue when there’s ice in the outside air.

    There are more Reverse Cycle models available and it is the most popular type of RV air conditioner – customers that opt for Heating Element style air conditioners typically plan to spend long periods in cold temperatures.

  • Q:With air conditioner ratings, why are some specifications for the same model different between suppliers and information sources relating to things like cooling capacity?
    A:

    Hi, good question. With ratings such as cooling capacity, two different numbers can both be correct – they can just relate to different requirements and conditions.

    Often cooling capacity figures displayed for the product are from the electrical rating conditions. The other main method of testing ratings of air conditioners is to ISO5151 standard – this method is under standardised controlled conditions and allows more direct comparison between models.

  • Q:Looking at a roof top caravan air conditioner - What are the noise ratings (dBA)? And which is the quietest?
    A:

    Unfortunately caravan air conditioner manufacturers don’t provide dBA ratings with their unit specifications, which is a pity because it is a hot topic among caravan enthusiasts.  

    All of the models we stock are premium brands and we have had no feedback from customers that the noise of their caravan air conditioner model purchased from us is too loud, or keeping them awake/disturbing them during the air con operation.

    Referring to specific models, a couple of the more popular caravan air conditioner options are:

    • The Harrier Inverter Air Conditioner has a variable speed inverter compressor, making its operation very quiet for its size (its designed for vehicles up 7.5 metres in length). 
    • The Dometic Aircommand Ibis MK3 model (designed for vehicles up to 6.5 metres in length) has improved its high speed fan operation from previous models, also making it a very quiet roof top caravan air conditioner.
    • The latest release from Dometic; The Dometic Aircommand MK4 model (designed for vehicles up to 7 metres in length) features a new-generation compressor with inverter technology which ensures that vibration is minimised, creating a more pleasant environment. In addition to this, the quiet environment that the Ibis 3 achieved has been replicated. Both of these features make it one of the quiestest air conditioners in the market.
  • Q:Will the Cromtech 2400w Inverter Generator handle the start up surge on this aircon unit?
    A:

    Hi - short answer is yes. The technical departments of RV air conditioning manufacturers (e.g. Dometic, Air Command, Truma etc.) will typically recommend a 2400w or 2800w inverter generator for most RV aircon models.

    In our experience, the Yamaha EF2400iS or Cromtech 2400w Inverter Generator are the best generator models to run caravan air-conditioners. These models have the capacity to handle the startup power requirements when the Aircon compressor kicks in.

    Of course there are other inverter generator models (slightly bigger or smaller) that customers do use to run their Caravan/Motorhome Air Conditioner - some 2000 - 2200w  or  2800 - 3000w generator models. It can depend on the particular setup of the van... However, as mentioned, the most popular models are the Yamaha 2400w or Cromtech 2400w and this is what we would recommend for an RV Aircon also.
