What is Split System Air Conditioning?

A split-system air conditioner is a type of air conditioner that has two parts – one inside the house and one outside. The idea is that the outside unit holds all the parts that get hot while the inside unit contains the parts which are cool, like the blower. This ‘split’ helps ensure that heat is kept outside of the building and makes the system more efficient.

How Does a Split-System Air Conditioner Work?

A split-system air conditioner uses gas as a refrigerant. It is compressed and cooled and used to reduce the temperature of the warm air which enters the system from the room. The now cooled air is then sent back into the room by the system’s fan. The system continues to cool the air until the room meets the desired temperature set by the thermostat.

Why Buy Split-System Air Conditioning?

There are considerable benefits to using a split-system air conditioner over a ducted system or an evaporative air conditioning system:

  • Targeted Cooling Increases Efficiency – installing multiple indoor units enables users to choose which rooms they cool (and save electricity on rooms that don’t need to cool).
  • Heat Is Kept Outside – The split system prevents heat escaping into the room and counteracting the air conditioning.
  • Reduced Energy Costs – unlike ducted systems, where there is a huge opportunity for heat to escape, split systems lose very little heat. This increases efficiency and lowers cost.
  • Large Compressor Cools a Larger Area – window units and other similar air conditioning systems are limited by their compressor size. Split systems can have a large compressor that can cool large rooms, or even multiple rooms.

What Product Options Are Available?

There’s a whole range of split-system air conditioners available on the market in Perth. As with most items, you get what you pay for; cheaper systems break more often and are less efficient.

They’re more efficient than competing systems, look fantastic, and allow users to control their desired temperatures precisely. They’re also Australian-made and perfect for Australia’s hot climate, have the greatest temperature-operating range on the market, and are guaranteed to be the most energy-efficient air conditioners in Perth.

How Much Does Split-System Air Conditioning Cost to Install?

The cost of your installation will depend on the system you choose and the work required to install it at your location.

What Are The Running Costs for Split-System Air Conditioning?

The cost of running your unit will depend upon the size of the unit and the price you pay for your electricity. Depending on your agreement with your electricity provider, your costs may change depending on the time of day.

For example, a 2.6kW Serene system by Actron Air and an electricity price of $0.50 per kW hour would result in running costs of $1.30 per hour. Larger systems will cost comparatively more:

 

Off-Peak Cost (Example rate of 14 cents per kWh)Peak Cost (Example rate of 50 cents per kWh)
