Air conditioning is vital to ensure that your home remains at a comfortable temperature so you can enjoy spending your time there. However, with the number of different air conditioning systems available today, making the choice on the best one for your needs can be overwhelming. One system that has proven to be highly effective and popular is the split A/C system. Below, we will reveal everything you need to know about it.

What is a split system AC?

As the name indicates, there are two key parts to this system; the inner and outer components. These two parts are connected by electric cabling and piping, which enables a refrigerant to flow to and from each unit. The loudest and largest part of the A/C unit will be placed outside, which means there is a much quieter and lighter unit placed indoors, and it can be situated virtually anywhere inside your building. 

A split system is easy to operate. All you need is a remote control to change the temperature and settings for maximum comfort all year round. There are also different controls and in-built timers to help you further personalise your heating and cooling.

Why split systems make sense

Now you know what a split system is and how it works, let’s take a look at a number of different benefits associated with going down this route.

  • Flexibility - One of the chief benefits of opting for this system is that different rooms can be heated with multiple indoor units. You can use the remote control and thermostat to personalise your experience per room. Only heating or cooling the rooms you need to can save a lot of money in the long run.  Most units can now be operated from your Smart Phone, so you can turn your unit on before you leave work and your home will be at a comfortable temperature when you arrive.

  • Quiet operation - As the noisest part of the air conditioning unit is placed outside, you can expect a quiet, comfortable living environment.
  • Energy efficiency – If you’re only heating or cooling the rooms you use, you are keeping your energy use to a minimum, ensuring power is not wasted. This is good for the planet and your bank balance as well. 

  • Ease of installation – A split system is one of the quickest and easiest systems to install.
