In this post, we're going to explain how a split system air conditioner work, as well as their best use-case scenarios, so that you can make the best decision for your home or office.
What is a split system air conditioner?
Essentially, a split system air conditioner is like two appliances in one. It's a combination of an outdoor compressor and condenser unit, and an indoor air handler. The outdoor compressor and condenser unit sit outside your home or office, while the indoor air handler is installed inside your home. The two units are connected by piping that carries refrigerant from the outdoor unit to the indoor unit.
The best use-case scenarios for split system air conditioners are small to medium-sized homes or offices up to 60 square meters in size. If you have a large home or office, a central air conditioning system might be a better option.
How does a split system air conditioner work?
Split system air conditioners work by circulating refrigerant through the indoor and outdoor units. The refrigerant absorbs heat from the indoor air, and then releases it outdoors. This process cools the indoor air and helps to keep your home or office comfortable.
One of the benefits of split system ACs is that they're very efficient. They don't waste any energy, because the refrigerant is circulated directly between the indoor and outdoor units. There's no need to circulate air through wall or ceiling ducts, so there are no unnecessary energy losses.
Another benefit of split system air conditioners is that they're very quiet! The indoor unit makes very little noise, which is one of the reasons they're a good option for small or home offices, studies, AV rooms, or anywhere a quiet environment is important.
You also get multi split system air conditioners, which allow you to connect multiple indoor units to a single outdoor unit. This is ideal if you want to cool more than one room, or if you have a large room that needs to be cooled evenly. A multi split air conditioner is also a good option if you want to set different temperatures for different rooms. Cost and installation
