Split System Air Conditioning
Split system air conditioning is an efficient climate control solution. Composed of both an indoor and outdoor unit, split systems are relatively inexpensive to purchase and install. Smaller systems often only cost a few hundred dollars to install. With Mouritz, you get the peace of mind that comes with experienced HVAC technicians and reliable advice, making your air conditioning journey stress-free.
Is split system air conditioning right for me?
Split system air conditioning might be right for you if you need a cost-effective, targeted solution for heating or cooling your home. Split system units are both efficient and affordable, making them an excellent option. Since they are split between outdoor and indoor components, their installation is incredibly flexible. You can add indoor units to different rooms as your needs change and they come in a wide range of sizes. Split system air conditioners are an excellent option if you only need to heat or cool certain parts of your home. If you live in a smaller home, you might want to consider a split system. It offers you an excellent way to maximise comfort while keeping installation and operating costs low.
How does a split system air conditioner work?
As the name suggests, split system air conditioners are split into two primary components. The outdoor component interacts with air from the outside whereas the indoor component does the same for air inside the home. The two components of a split system air conditioner are connected using a series of electrical wires and gas pumps. Most split systems are refrigerated, meaning they work by absorbing heat from the air and releasing it somewhere else. Some have reverse cycle capabilities, meaning they can provide heating too.
In terms of installation, both components in a split system are quite flexible. The indoor unit is mounted in whatever room or area you need it for. For the outdoor unit, you simply need to find a low traffic area on the outside of your home.
What size split system air conditioner do I need?
The size of your split system air conditioner is mainly determined by the size of your room and your location. Room size and volume helps determine the correct system for your energy needs. Without proper consideration, you could end up with a too-large system that costs more than it saves, or a too small system which doesn’t efficiently heat and cool your home. Getting the right sized split system air conditioner helps you get maximum heating and cooling at minimum cost. When you team up with Mouritz, we’ll measure your room’s length, width, and ceiling height.
Split system vs ducted air conditioning
Split systems and ducted air conditioning both deliver great climate control, but are suited to different environments. Ducted air conditioning is typically preferred for whole-home air conditioning. Installing a ducted system is a more intricate process, as it is incorporated into the structure of the building. Ducts are installed in different areas of the house, allowing the system to expel air everywhere. As a result, they are very discreet and don’t make much noise while they’re operating.
However, ducted systems also tend to be more expensive than split system air conditioners. The increased complexity of their installation translates to higher costs. Additionally, they are generally designed for larger homes with many rooms. As a result, they tend to use a higher amount of energy than split systems. If you only need climate control for a few rooms or spaces in your home, a split system offers a cheaper and more efficient solution.
