When the time comes to replace an air conditioning system, or if you are planning on putting one into a new build, you will have a few decisions to make. An essential one is whether you want to use a ducted or evaporative system or whether you want to go with a split system air conditioner.
In general, it is always a good idea to talk to a local expert which can help you make the best decision.

But before you contact an aircon expert, it’s always good to do a bit of research on your own. There are a lot of good reasons as to why so many people opt for a split system air conditioner. Here is a look at what makes them popular and what to consider before you buy a unit.
What is a split system air conditioner?
A split unit is so-called because there are two parts to the units. There is the compressor that is placed outside and the condenser that is installed in the room you want to be kept cool or heated. The best installation companies can make sure both are in the best position so you get the best results.
There are even many models that are upright or free-standing which gives you a little more freedom in terms of position and appearance.
Split system air conditioners can be easily installed (by a qualified installer), which helps account for their popularity in Australia. They are also convenient to operate, usually via an infra-red remote control or wifi options whereby the unit can be controlled via mobile app.
Another thing to consider with this option of air conditioning is the noise factor. When consumers are looking for the quietest option, then a ducted system performs slightly better than split systems. Although, newer models of split systems are very quiet these days and will become even more quiet in the future since it’s such big factor.
Then there is the pricing to consider. The technology for small split system air conditioners was first developed in Japan in response to a need for energy-efficient air conditioning that is small and more affordable. A system that is more affordable to run and more affordable to buy. In general, the prices of these models or units tend to be less than a larger traditional air conditioning system.
How do they compare in performance
How well a system performs depends on a lot of factors, including how large the space is that needs to be cooled, and making sure the positioning is right. A ducted air conditioner is better at maintaining an even temperature throughout the house however, in terms of heating or cooling a room quickly, a split system definitely outperforms ducted. Split systems are generally a better choice for small houses or single rooms.
Considering installation costs
Split system air conditioners are far cheaper to install compared to ducted or evaporative systems. The cost also depends on whether you replace an existing split system or whether you install an aircon in a new space in your house. It is best to get a few quotes from local companies to get a better idea of pricing.
