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. When the system is in cooling mode the warm air from inside the room is taken by the fan coil and removed, resulting in cold air recirculating in the room. When used in reverse mode the system pumps out toasty warm air.
Split system air conditioning units are designed to heat or cool the room they are installed in and come in inverter, fixed speed or non-inverter models. The split system air conditioning units we supply and install all meet strict environmental and safety standards and run on ozone safe, non -flammable, non-toxic and highly energy efficient refrigerants.
Invertertechnology is the key to constant comfort 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 where multiple fan coils can be fitted to a single condenser.
Wall mounted split system air conditioning is a very popular choice when it comes to options of air conditioning in Melbourne, mainly due to the fact they are affordable, and easy to maintain and a convenient option for apartments.
Different types of split system air conditioning units
A bulkhead is installed when a standard wall mounted unit is not possible 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 units are when multiple head units are connected to a single outdoor condenser. These are great when there is limited outdoor space for the outdoor condensers.
