What is Split System Air Conditioning?

Split System Air Conditioning is the most economic way to both Heat and Cool a room or area.

Split Systems get their name as they are ‘split’ into 2 units, 1 indoor and 1 outdoor. The indoor unit, or ‘head’ is attached to a wall inside your house and provides either heating or cooling, depending on what setting you have it on. It works in conjunction with a compressor unit which is located outside your house.

Split Systems are the most cost effective solution for both heating and cooling individual rooms, in terms of installation and running costs.

There are 3 different air conditioning functions you can use – heating, cooling or just fan, making it a perfect year-round solution.

They come in a range of sizes, suitable for small rooms to large open plan areas.

Are you wanting more than 1 Split System? A Multi-Head Split System might be the answer.

Multi-Heat Split Systems use 1 outdoor compressor unit to run multiple indoor heads. This is a great option if you want multiple rooms air conditioned but your house design doesn’t allow for a ducted system.

No. The Split system indoor unit is installed on the wall in the room it is to be used in.

The outdoor unit is installed outside, usually on the other side of the wall.

The size of the area that you want to heat or cool, along with other factors such as orientation, insulation, the amount of sunlight entering the room and ceiling height will determine what size system you need.

it is important to get this right as an incorrectly sized unit can use extra electricity.

If you get a unit which too big,  it can heat or cool your room quickly then turn off. Then turn back on when the room temperature rises or falls again. This on/off cycling draws extra power than a properly size air conditioner would.

If you get a unit which is too small, it will constantly be trying to reach desired temperature which can cause the outdoor compressor to constantly run at a high level, which will utilize more power.

Our Split System Air Conditioner Room Size Chart (see  below) can help you calculate which Split System may be right for your home, but our technicians will always verify your house’s details with you to ensure you are getting the correct sized unit.
