Split System Air Conditioning

There are so many types of air-conditioning systems, with so many terms, that it can get pretty confusing. They can be classified by method of cooling (eg. reverse-cycle, evaporative) or classified by delivery system (eg. ducted, or split systems).

Split systems are the most common type of aircon in Australian homes, and they’re titled as such because they have two parts – the indoor unit, and the outdoor unit.

To confuse you even more, split systems come in many different types. Here we will give a quick overview of the main types of split systems and their features, so you can start to figure out what you need.
Split system air conditioning is perfect for those on a smaller budget, they are an excellent, cost-effective solution to heat or cool a single room or area of a house, such as a living room, or a bedroom. Split systems provide both heating and cooling and can be installed in almost any location.
