Split System Air Conditioners

SPLIT SYSTEM AIR CONDITIONERS

A split system air conditioner consists of an outside unit and an indoor unit, connected by pipes containing refrigerant gas. Refrigerant is distributed through the copper pipes that cycle through the system to produce either heated or cold air. The outside unit is either installed on or close to the outside wall of the area that you want to cool down. This outdoor unit includes the compressor, condenser coil and the expansion coil or capillary tube.

Split systems air conditioners are great for keeping any apartment, single rooms in homes or small workplace areas cool in the summer as well as warm in the winter. They are also the most common air conditioning type in Australia and an especially popular choice for homes without ductwork. They are best suited for a room or open-plan area up to about 60 square metres.

A split system works especially well inside a small area, as it will be able to provide adequate heating or cooling for that area. Using a split system air conditioning in conjunction with other sources, such as a second split system for another area in your household, will make your home a lot more comfortable.

A big advantage to split air conditioning systems is the option to expand the system with extra air outlets for other rooms. Each one can have its thermostat providing individual management to turn the air conditioning either on or off as required.

OUR RANGE OF SPLIT SYSTEM AIR CONDITIONERS FOR SALE

Your air conditioning needs may vary depending on various factors such as which rooms require conditioning, the selected space size, and the available space for the air conditioning system. Because of this, we supply and install a variety of different split air conditioner units that are each suitable for different situations. These split types include:

  • Wall-mounted split systems
  • Floor standing split systems
  • Under ceiling split systems
  • In-ceiling split systems

Each of these types has strengths and weaknesses and so owners must choose a split system air conditioner that suits their situation.

WALL MOUNTED SPLIT SYSTEMS

Wall-mounted split systems are the most popular choice when it comes to split system air conditioning. They have relatively low initial and running costs while also being easy to install and maintain. Wall-mounted split systems have their indoor units mounted on a wall within the area that is selected for air conditioning. View our range of Wall Mounted Split Systems here.


FLOOR STANDING SPLIT SYSTEMS

Floor standing units are split air conditioning units situated on the floor as opposed to on the wall or ceiling. Due to the vertical positioning of the unit, floor standing units are considered to be better at heating than other types of split systems. Heat thrown close to the floor level rises, spreading heat more effectively than other split systems would. Floor standing units are also more accessible than wall mounted units as they are at ground level. View our range of Floor Standing Split System here.


UNDER CEILING SPLIT SYSTEMS

Under ceiling split systems are a great alternative to wall split systems if there is not much readily available wall space or if owners are looking for an energy-efficient split system to cool larger areas of their building. As the name suggests, under ceiling split systems’ indoor unit rests under the ceiling as opposed to on the wall. View our range of Under Ceiling Split Systems here.


IN-CEILING SPLIT SYSTEMS

In-ceiling split systems, also known as cassette systems, are another great alternative to wall splits when there is not enough wall space available. Similar to under ceiling split systems, in-ceiling split systems don’t require a wall and can cool large open areas more efficiently than the typical wall mounted split system. Unlike under ceiling systems, in-ceiling split systems are built into the ceiling, concealing most of the indoor unit with the only part visible being the thin fascia panel.

CHOOSING THE RIGHT SPLIT AIR CONDITIONING UNIT 

Before having your split system installed, you need to decide which model is the best unit for you. This is where you may need the expertise of a licensed team, such as Lawson Air. Contact our friendly, professional team now and we will help you choose the best air conditioning unit for your home. When selecting an air conditioner, we will consider factors such as the dimensions of your home, type of space where the air conditioning is going to be installed and your budget. 

Here's a rough guide to the air conditioner capacity you'll want for a selected space size.

Room size

Capacity

Up to 20 sq m

2–2.5kW

20–40 sq m

2.5–5kW

40–60 sq m

4–6kW

60–80 sq m

5–7kW

80+ sq m

6–9kW

 

That is the approximate guide, but a more intensive calculation will need to be carried out before purchasing your air conditioning unit or else you may run into some problems. Models that are too powerful for the area could run frequent short cycles to achieve the required temperature which can result in the room becoming too cold or hot, inadequate dehumidification, raised power use and running costs, and wear and tear on the system. Likewise, underpowered models may have to run more often at maximum output, that may dry the air excessively and additionally produce excessive wear.
