Types of Indoor Units
There are two major types of split systems: a conventional one to one split system where one fan coil is connected to one condenser while a multi-head system is where multiple fan coils (up to 9) are connected to a single condenser. Different fan coils (indoor units) can serve different purposes:
The most standard type of residential split air conditioning. Most convenient for apartments or small houses.
Where normal split system installation is not possible due to the lack of wall space or concrete ceilings, a bulkhead can be added to solve your heating and cooling needs. It is quiet and suitable for any application.
The clever design of these units allows them to be attached to a ceiling for more flexibility in situations where wall space is limited. Traditionally more suited for commercial use (Bars, Shops…) but can be a good solution to not having any space the walls for a wall mount.
Console systems can be installed on both the floor and ceiling. Traditionally seen more in commercial buildings (hotels, petrol stations…) but can applied in certain domestic situations where a high airflow is required.
Why Split Air Conditioning?
Wall mounted split air conditioning systems are the most commonly owned residential air conditioning system, as they are affordable and easily to maintain.
Inverter technology is your key to more comfort throughout the year as it maintains a constant temperature, saves costs (less energy consumption) and produces relatively less noise when used. This is achieved through controlling the compressor rotation speed more precisely.
Wall mounted split AC systems are the best affordable option for a one room, apartment or small house as they are relatively cheap to buy (depending on how many indoor units you require) and there is no duct work required.
Multi-Head Split System
Multi-head split systems allow different indoor units to connect to one outdoor condenser, which in turn gives you the comfort of having the most suitable air conditioner (in terms of physical and output constraints) for a specific room.
Independent Temperature Control
Each indoor unit is able to control the room that it is installed in, thus each room can have a different temperatures.
Many split air conditioning systems have air filtering and humidity control functions that regulate the amount of dust and humidity in a room. This gives sensitive customers (children, elderly, asthmatic or allergic users) an ease of mind and body.
