Choosing the right type of air conditioner for your home

What Are the Types of Air Con to Choose From?

Whether you want control of the climate in a single room or a whole house, there is a range of air con solutions available for your home.

Split System Air Conditioner

Split systems are a great choice for homeowners looking to stay comfortable all year round. This type of air conditioner refers to a system where the condenser is fixed externally outside the home, and the head unit is fixed inside the home.

There are many positives to split systems. Generally, this type of AC is a less expensive option compared to other systems. It can also be installed in one area at a time, allowing you to plan your installation across different dates if needed. The split system is regarded as one of the most efficient designs, as it can cool or heat residential areas of all sizes. However, a split system model will function most effectively in small properties, apartments or double-storey homes. This is because split systems can be installed between levels, whereas other systems cannot.

It is important to bear in mind that if there are several walls in an interior zone, a split system may be limited in its capacity to control the temperature beyond the zone. If the ability to heat or cool multiple rooms is needed, a multi-split system may be the better option for you.

Multi-Split Air Conditioner

Where several rooms or zones need temperature control, a multi-split system could be the best option for your home. This system comprises of one outdoor unit which is connected to indoor units.

There are numerous benefits to a multi-split air con unit. They are extremely efficient and capable of powering up to six interior rooms at once. With this system, each indoor unit can be controlled individually. This means that specific rooms can be set at different temperatures, all from a remote.

A multi-split system also has the potential to saving you money. You can closely control your power bill with this system, as you can heat and cool certain rooms as needed. For homeowners requiring optimal control over thermal comfort, multi-split systems are an excellent choice.

Ducted Air Conditioner

Ducted systems feature some key differences to split and multi-split systems, the most obvious being their configuration. Unlike the external installation of other AC systems, a ducted air conditioner is installed internally, often within the roof. From the central unit, a series of ducts will cool or heat individual rooms within your property. This type of air conditioner will require a certain amount of cavity space for installation, so it may not be suited to every home.

This type of system is concealed and less obtrusive than comparative systems. It will also ensure your entire home (no matter the size) has excellent temperature control. Generally, it is more expensive to run but with the main advantage of being able to cool a larger area.

Some ducted systems allow for separate zones, meaning you have temperature control of individual rooms. However, it is important to note this feature will incur more costs. All in all, ducted AC units are a quiet and effective way to ensure climate control in a large home.

Importance of Using A Certified & Qualified Service

As with any trade, is extremely important to work with a certified and qualified air con installer, not only to ensure peace of mind during the installation process but to know you won’t have to worry about your system ever again.

Licensed installers carry an ARCtick number, meaning they are qualified to handle the dangerous materials involved with air con units. This also means they are fully qualified to advise on how the system works, general upkeep, formulate preventative maintenance plans and service your system when required. After all, nobody knows your system like the person who installed it! Plus, if we installed your air con system, you’ll already be included in our preventative maintenance program at no extra cost.
