When it comes to choosing an AC system, there are so many different options. From complex ducted air conditioning to simple window AC units, there is a different opportunity to suit the unique needs of every customer.
Today, let’s take a closer look at wall-mounted split system air conditioners and their many benefits.
What is a wall-mounted AC unit?
Wall-mounted, split system AC units, are the most popular type of air conditioning units for homes and are designed to cool and/or heat either small or large residential areas. A split air conditioner consists of an outdoor unit and an indoor unit. The outdoor unit is installed on or near the exterior wall of the room that you wish to cool. This unit houses the compressor, condenser coil and the expansion coil or capillary tubing. The sleek-looking indoor unit contains the cooling coil, a long blower and an air filter. If you require multiple rooms or various room temperatures, multi-split systems function the same as a split system; however, comprise of a single outdoor unit connected to multiple independent indoor units. Let’s explore why wall-mounted AC systems are an excellent choice for your property.
Wall-mounted air conditioning systems tend to be one of the most economical options for those looking for a cost-effective solution to air conditioning needs. While window units or even portable units appear to be far cheaper, split systems will save money significantly in the long run, due to their increased energy efficiency. Although centralised HVAC systems tend to offer lower running costs, when you factor in the initial outlay for installation, a wall-mounted unit is often the most affordable option.
For many, the aesthetics of their home or building is an important factor. The sleek design of the new wall air conditioner means that it can be easily placed in almost any room and look great. Modern wall mounted units are designed to be slimmer and smaller than their older counterparts and far more aesthetically pleasing than bulky window and portable units. Unlike central HVAC systems that can require considerable disruption for installation, a wall-mounted unit causes very little damage to decor and aesthetics during installation.
Another great benefit of wall mounted air conditioning units is that there is a great variety of options available. Many reputable and established manufacturers offer a range of wall-mounted appliances, in different sizes, capacities and efficiencies. Many models also feature timers and other advanced features to allow you to maximise energy savings and reduce your electricity bills even in the height of summer.
While wall-mounted split systems are great, each possible air conditioning system has a number of advantages and disadvantages which are important to weigh up before you make a decision.
