Split Air Conditioning
Split Air Conditioning and How It Works
Split system air conditioning units comprise of 2 main components. One half of the system, the condenser, is installed externally and the other half, the fan coil, is installed internally. This is why they are called split system air conditioners.
Inverter technology is the key to constant comfort all year round as it maintains a constant temperature, saves on running costs by using less energy consumption and produces relatively less noise when operating
Split system air conditioning units come in a variety of models: discreet wall mounted units, compact floor consoles, versatile floor and ceiling units and multi head systems with multiple fan coils that can be fitted to a single condenser.Wall mounted split system air conditioning is a very popular choice when it comes to options for air conditioning in Brisbane, mainly due to the fact they are affordable, easy to maintain and a convenient option for apartments.
A multi head air conditioner may be required if there is limited outdoor space for the condenser. A multi split air conditioning unit means there are various head units in each room, which run off the same outdoor compressor. Multi split air conditioning units are a great choice for apartments or townhouses.
Different types of split system air conditioning units
A bulkhead is installed when a standard wall mounted unit is not possible, usually due to the lack of wall space or if ceilings are concrete. A bulkhead is quiet and suitable for any application.
Ceiling cassettes are cleverly designed so that they can be attached to the ceiling for greater flexibility when wall space is limited. Ceiling cassette units are more commonly used in commercial applications but can also be installed in homes where wall space to suit a wall hung system is lacking.
Console units can be installed on the floor or ceiling. This style of split system air conditioning unit is more commonly found in commercial installations, in particular hotels and petrol stations, but they can also be installed in domestic homes where a high air flow is required.
Multi Head Air Conditioner
Multi-head air conditioner units are connected to a single outdoor condenser. These are great when there is limited outdoor space for the outdoor condensers.
