The Benefits of Using a Split-System Air Conditioning

HVAC heating and air conditioning residential units

There are two main parts of a split-type air conditioner: the outdoor and the indoor units. The former is installed near or on the wall of the space or room that you want to cool. It houses the condenser coil, compressor, and the capillary tubing or expansion coil.

Split system air conditioning comes with many benefits, according to the experts at Conduct Air Conditioning. These include:

1. Less Energy Lost

A split-type system is compact and located in-between two localised sections, so there is little chance for heat and energy to exit the system. A centralised air conditioning system wastes a significant amount of energy because of the exchange of heat inside the air conditioning system’s duct. This problem is non-existent in split air conditioning systems.

2. Less Heat Lost

A split type air conditioner system is preferable to a wall and window-type system. While the latter systems are smaller and easier to install, they do not offer consistently dependable cooling to multiple rooms or large spaces. Wall and window type units allow heat to get into the space – even if the windows and walls are thoroughly sealed – and this makes the cooling systems less effective.

3. Targeted Cooling and Heating

Installing two or more indoor fans and evaporators is possible. This means you can have one installed in every room or area of the house. Each of them can be operated independently from one another, using only a single outdoor compressor. This way, you can enjoy the combined customisation and efficiency of space heaters or fans with the convenience offered by centralised air-conditioning systems.

4. Affordable Installation

A split system air conditioning is more affordable, convenient to operate and maintain, and compact. However, professional installation may be necessary because of the specialised techniques required. Some electrical wiring work must also be done.

Once the installation is complete, you can enjoy an energy-efficient and affordable way of controlling the temperature inside your home.

After knowing these benefits, you can now come up with a better-informed decision on which type of air-conditioning system to install in your home.
