Split System Air Conditioning Western Australia

Split system air conditioning is perfect for controlling the climate in smaller living spaces such as an apartment, or in just one or two rooms of your home such as a bedroom and a small to medium sized living area.

Unlike ducted air conditioning systems, a split system does not use a series of ducts to transfer the air around your home which means that although beneficial, having your roof insulated prior to installation is not absolutely necessary.

How does it work?

A split system uses two units working together: an inside unit and a compressor/condensor outside. It works by expelling the hotter air inside your house to the outside and replacing it with cool, refrigerated air. 

A split system lets you control temperature, humidity, atmospheric moisture and cleanliness. An efficient system helps keep air clean by allowing you to keep your doors and windows closed.

An inverter split system is a more efficient system because rather than turning on or off as your desired temperature is reached, an inverter will graduate the speed of the compressor based on your needs.  To put it simply, an inverter uses approximately 30% less power than a standard fixed speed system.

A reverse-cycle air conditioner can heat as well as cool.  When it's cooling, the unit will extract heat from the indoor air and moves it outside, via the refrigerant gas in the pipes connecting the indoor and outdoor units. The outdoor unit releases the heat and pumps the cooled refrigerant back to the indoor unit where the cycle continues. In heating mode, the process is simply reversed, to extract heat energy from the outdoor air and move it inside.

What size?

An important thing to consider when looking at a new split system air conditioner is the cooling capacities.  This will determine how well your unit will cool or heat rooms of different sizes. For example, a 1.5KW reverse cycle split system may be ideal for a bedroom while an open plan living area will require higher capacity, such as an 8kW reverse cycle split system.
