What Is a Split System Air Conditioner?

Split systems are pretty different from packaged systems, which house all parts in a single unit. They are also different from window systems with an evaporator, compressor, and condenser all in a single unit or window. However, most people prefer split system heaters due to these advantages:

An Easier Installation Procedure. Unlike traditional systems, installing a split system does not require complicated installation. In contrast to ductwork and window installation, installing a system indoors is easier. Also, the installer need not cut into the walls to install central heating and cooling units. The fact that they do not need to install ductwork and windows saves time and money.

The Cost of Indoor Installation. Because there are no ducts to cut or insulate, the cost of an indoor unit is significantly less than most traditional air conditioning systems. This savings can be substantial for first-time homeowners or smaller business owners who are on a limited budget. A traditional air conditioning system uses large amounts of ductwork and expensive materials like rigid foam or rigid stainless steel. With a split system, a small hole is made within the walls.

It increased Energy Efficiency. One of the benefits of a split system is increased energy efficiency. This happens because the air movement from the outside is now going through a more extensive and more efficient duct system. Also, the compressor has a lower operating temperature, so it requires less energy to run. The result is that your electric bill will be considerably lower with this type of HVAC unit.

Safety Features. One of the most significant issues with traditional air conditioning systems is the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning. When the unit is running, it produces carbon monoxide. However, this gas is odourless and colourless, making it very dangerous to breathe. A small hole is cut in the wall with split air conditioning systems, sealing off the vents.

Less Maintenance. While most modern air conditioning units require very little maintenance, some do require routine maintenance. For example, many parts have to be replaced regularly with a traditional air conditioning system, such as the compressor and condenser. These parts can be costly, meaning they must be replaced sooner rather than later. On the other hand, modern split air conditioning systems only require small and straightforward changes, usually for aesthetic purposes.

These are some of the main reasons why a CLIMAT Mitsubishi split system may be the best choice for your home. If you are still unsure about the installation process or the energy bills resulting from it, you may wish to consult a professional to get your questions answered. Air conditioners are very complicated machines, and they need to be installed correctly to ensure you get the most benefit from them. The more you know about the installation process, the easier it will be for you and your family.
