Is a Split Wall-Console Air Conditioning System, or Ducted System Best For Your Home?

A ‘split’ system air conditioning system is an ideal choice for most home owners. It will cool small to large rooms efficiently and cost-effectively as long as the unit is well chosen and how or when it is used.
A ducted system can also be a ‘split’ system so a better way to describe it is to call it a wall console unit versus a ceiling ducted one.

The cost to run it is dependent on a few variables, such as matching the size of the system to your room, the heat loads it is dealing with, and the brand of the unit.
Different rooms have different heat loads such as whether the unit is cooling a west facing room in your home or an east facing one.

There are premium brands that are far more efficient and reliable than the cheaper brands. Having an experienced company that also services air conditioning systems is important, to advise you on the best systems to use from years of their experience.
When reverse cycle split system air conditioners use reverse mode the system pumps out toasty warm air which is perfect for winter.

Types Of Split System Air Conditioners

Split system air conditioning is a great option for both homes and businesses. Below are types of split air conditioning systems that can be installed in your home or office.


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

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 a wall mounted unit is not suitable.

Console Units

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 high air flow is required.

Multi Head Units

Multi-head air conditioner units are connected to a single outdoor condenser. These are great when there is limited space outside for multiple outdoor condensers.

Very very happy with our experience with this split system air conditioning company. Mick and his team were a delight to deal with. Punctual, organised, efficient, friendly and extremely accommodating. We would highly recommend Southside Airconditioning Solutions and would certainly use them again.

Thank you so much. Not only was the airconditioning service man on time but super efficient. The electrician then arrived equally as prompt and equally efficient in completing the job with no fuss. I highly recommend Southside Air-Conditioning Solutions for any split system airconditioning or electrical work.

Nothing but praise for Mick and his split system airconditioning team. My wife, who is on home dialysis, was not looking forward to the hot week ahead when our split system airconditioning died on the weekend. Contacted Mick on Monday morning and by lunch-time on Tuesday a new airconditioner was installed. Well done team. Highly recommended!


We cannot thank Mick enough for coming out to us over the Christmas break and sorting out our split system air conditioning. We will be using Mick in future for all our airconditioning servicing and airconditioning repairs.
