Split System Air Conditioners Supply and Installations
Split system air conditioners are made up of two separate units, this is why they are called split systems. One part of the system is located inside the room and the other outside. In cooling mode, warm air from the room is drawn into the indoor unit where heat is absorbed and removed. The air is recirculated back into the room providing cool, comfortable living even on the hottest summer day. By simply hitting a button on your remote you can reverse the system from cooling to heating. Your system heat pump simply runs in reverse to keep your room cosy and warm on winter days.
Split system air conditioners are suitable for cooling multiple rooms or an open area. They’re also great for regulating the temperature of larger rooms such as a lounge room, living room, rumpus room or master bedroom.
Another advantage of split system air conditioners is their energy efficiency when compared to portable and window air conditioners. They also tend to be quieter and more pleasing to the eye, enhancing your home environment in more ways than one.
Split system air conditioners require professional installation. They generally need to be installed with the compressor placed outside the home with the internal fan facing the inside of the room (about 200-300mm from the ceiling). Placing the fan unit and the compressor on the same wall will help to keep installation costs to a minimum.
You can either purchase a Split system air conditioner unit through Mako Air or if you have already purchased one from a retailer we can install it for you. Please contact Heath Goodwin 0490 333 461 for more information about our installation services.
Split System Air Conditioners – getting the right size?
As a basic starting point, you’ll need a split system air conditioner with around 1-1.5 kilowatts of cooling capacity per every 10 square metres (sqm) of space that needs to be cooled.
This list should provide you with a rough idea:
- 20 sqm : Kilowatts needed 2.8kW
- 30 sqm : Kilowatts needed 4.2kW
- 40 sqm : Kilowatts needed 5.6kW
- 50 sqm : Kilowatts needed 7.0kW
- 60 sqm : Kilowatts needed 8.4kW
There are other factors that will affect the performance of your split system air conditioner. These include:
- Height of the ceiling
- Whether or not your ceiling and walls are insulated
- The location and size of the windows, and the direction they face
- The climate you are living in
