A Guide to Split System Air Conditioners

When you’re looking to cool or heat a single room or area of your home or office, a split system air conditioner is the idea solution. Split air conditioners Perth can provide an efficient source of heating and cooling for year-round comfort at an affordable price.

What is a Split System?

As the name suggests, an air conditioning split system contains two separate units. Split aircon units consist of an outdoor unit which contains the compressor and condenser. This dispels heat from the area being cooled and the refrigerants inside the compressor cool the air which is then passed into the building. The wall mounted indoor unit contains the fan which circulates cool or warm air into the room, depending on the setting.

Split systems regulate the temperature using a thermostat. The filters remove dust, dirt and other particles from the air providing clean air circulation as long as the filters are well maintained. Split systems also provide the advantage of removing humidity from the air. Moisture is drawn away from the air and the water is release through a drainage pipe.

What are the Advantages of Split Systems?

The advantage of a split aircon is that they are relatively cheap to purchase initially. They are also fairly non-invasive to install, and can often be done in less than a day by a qualified technician. Split system air conditioners are usually not suitable for very large areas but do well to cool or heat a single room. This is an advantage if you are looking to control the temperature in individual rooms as they provide a very efficient option.

Splits systems are generally more flexible than installing ducted systems. They can be installed in selected rooms or additional units can be added if needed in the future. However, it may become expensive if you need to add additional units to multiple rooms. Another advantage of split systems is that you have the flexibility of installing different capacities in different rooms. For example, a small room will only require a low-capacity unit, while a larger room will need more power. This may save money in the long run as lower capacity units are both cheaper to run and purchase.

An overview of the advantages of split systems:

  • Cost effective to run and install
  • Quick and easy to operate
  • Provides both heating and cooling options
  • Relatively low maintenance costs
  • Air purification functions
  • Flexible instalment options

When choosing a split system air conditioner Perth, you will need to consider the size of the room to be cooled. This will ensure that the right unit is installed to run efficiently and effectively. As well as room size, other considerations include your budget, the direction of windows, the presence of insulation (or not), and window dressings such as curtains and awnings.

There isn’t a one type fits all solution with split systems and it’s important to thoroughly investigate all options before deciding on your new air conditioner. The qualified and experienced team at Mouritz Gas and Air will be happy to assist with choosing the best and most efficient air conditioner for you and your family’s needs.
