Split Systems

Single split systems are among the most popular air conditioners in Sydney, and this is not surprising: they are economical, modern, elegant and, most importantly, they will cool the area in which they are placed.

Also, if you like this type of air conditioning, you could buy a multi-split system to cool all the areas you want in your home or business. Below we will give you information related to single split systems and how they compare to other types of air conditioners.

What is a single split system?

It is a type of air conditioner comprising two units: an internal unit and an external one. The internal unit, naturally, is in charge of circulating the air that is cooled by the compressor or external unit, to which it is connected by pipes and which is normally installed on the external facade of a house or business.

The internal unit is mostly controlled through remote control (although the unit itself usually has at least one on/off button), thanks to which it is possible to set not only the desired temperature but also functions such as automatic switch-off or on and control the speed. fan, among other things.

Is a single split system enough to cool two rooms?

Ideally, a single split should be used to cool just one room. With a multi-split system, on the other hand, up to eight areas can be cooled by allocating internal units in each of these spaces and connecting them to a single outdoor unit.

Do split systems have high electricity consumption?

This will vary depending on the size of the system and the amount of time the appliance is used.

Moreover, using a 2.5 kW system for four hours has a daily cost of 47.6 cents, while a 3.5KW system would produce a daily electricity cost of approximately 80 cents if used during the same period. Finally, a 5.0kw system has a daily cost of $ 1.24 if used for the same number of hours at 24 degrees.

Is a split system cheaper than a ducted system?

Yes. Ducted systems are usually more expensive than split systems because the former can cool (or, depending on the model, heat) an entire premise. However, front cost shouldn’t be the only factor to consider when deciding which system is ideal for your home or business. Note that a single split system will only cool the area where it’s installed but since they are cheap you’ll have the chance to progressively buy the other units that will cool the other areas of your house if that is something you want. Moreover, single split system installation and operational costs are lower than those of a ducted system.

Which is more recommended: split or ducted?

In the end, it is a matter of personal taste —and budget size. Ducted systems are considerably more expensive than split systems, but they are also more discreet, since the only visible part in these systems are the grilles, since its ducts and central unit are usually on the ceiling. Ducted systems also increase the value of the property, but the pipelines must be serviced every 3 to 5 years to avoid gas leaks.

On the other hand, split systems have the advantage that indoor units can be bought progressively.

Carrier, Bryant, American Standard, Trane, and Lennox rank excellent on the top brands regarding buyer satisfaction. Ducane and Armstrong’s rating is very good, as is Ruud’s and Rheem’s. The rest of the brands are rated average in terms of buyer satisfaction.

Is it necessary to service split systems?

Yes, it is necessary to do it at least once a year, first of all for health reasons, since if split systems are not cleaned periodically, they can get clogged with decomposing animals, bacteria, mould and fungi, which can cause diseases such as nausea, dizziness, allergies, asthma and other respiratory diseases.
