Many homeowners in warmer climes would be very uncomfortable without their air conditioning. There are several different methods that can be used to cool the home such as window mounted units, portable fans and HVAC systems. However, one of the most popular choices among many Australians is split system air conditioning. This system has many benefits over its rivals, and it may be the choice in many circumstances.
- Cheap and Easy Installation
Unlike many other methods, a split system air conditioning unit is easy to install. The system is also known as ductless air conditioning as there is no need to install ducts throughout the home. The job can be carried out by a pair of certified installation experts in less than a day. Because a huge crew of workmen isn’t required the costs for their labour are significantly reduced. This also means that the unit will be up and running very quickly which is essential if the weather is particularly hot or cold.
- Size Matters
A ductless air conditioning system is much more compact than an HVAC system. This makes them perfect for smaller residences such as apartments and starter homes. It also makes them ideal for attics and basements or other hard to reach spaces. If a specific room within a larger home requires air conditioning, then this system is ideal.
- Warm and Cool
The split system air conditioning system can be used to both cool and warm a room. The system is simply reversed in order to provide whichever function is required. There are significant savings to be made as it has been estimated that this system costs 30% less to run than a HVAC system. Also, the units are very eco-friendly as it is possible to affect a specific space rather than using energy to affect multiple rooms where it may not be required.
- Air Quality
A ductless air conditioning system will also improve the air quality within the home. Modern units have a multi-stage air filtration system. The filters in the unit will remove dust particles, and good quality systems can even remove pollen. It is usually recommended that the filters are changed every 45 to 60 days. However, if there are any allergy sufferers or furry pets in the home, it may be necessary to change them every month. In either case, no technical expertise is required, and the filters are easy to change.
- Quiet and Easy
These types of air conditioning systems are much quieter than other types. In fact, they have a barely audible hum that can’t even be heard over a radio or TV. They are also really simple and easy to operate and usually have a remote control unit.
