Advantages of a Split System Air Conditioner

92Views

If you are looking for the best in air conditioning solutions then you should consider having a split system air conditioning unit installed. Most know very little about air conditioning units other than that they need to turn them on when they are hot and fiddle with the remote to ensure and maintain and comfortable temperature, as such here is some information and advantages of a split system air conditioning unit.

Easier installation compared to traditional units

When compared to standard systems, installing a split system is easier. Not only does no ducting need to be installed, but the link between your interior and outdoor units only requires a 3-inch diameter aperture. All that’s left to do after the installation is to gain access to electricity and find a suitable space to mount your units. Because different lengths of refrigerant tubes are available from different manufacturers, your interior and outdoor units can be up to 100 feet apart.

Better energy efficiency

Central systems lose a lot of energy through ductwork, and leaking ducts can result in a cooling energy loss of up to 30%. When you have uninsulated ductwork or ductwork that has been installed in unconditioned regions, you’ll have challenges with energy efficiency. With split system installation, the systems have a completely ductless design, which increases your energy savings and lowers your future power expenses. Ductless air conditioners can achieve up to 30 SEER, which is more than double the efficiency of a traditional air conditioner.

Blending in

Indoor installation is extremely flexible with a split system air conditioner. You can hang them on the wall or suspend them from the ceiling. Furthermore, several offer aesthetically pleasing, stylish and sophisticated casings. Not only that, as compared to window units, which need you to either create a hole in the wall or dedicate a window to your air conditioner, split systems are less conspicuous.

Zoning

Split system air conditioners divide your home into zones to cool different parts of it. Unlike standard AC systems, which have a single thermostat for the entire space, each zone will have its own thermostat. Separate thermostats allow you to select which portions of your home are cooled and to restrict cooling to certain zones. This means you’ll save money while using less energy in the long run.

Ductless air conditioners are ideal for renovations without ductwork, older homes with insufficient distribution, electrically heated homes, and homes with hydronic heating.
