These days, the humble split system air conditioner has become an increasing part of many Melbourne homes. More and more Australians are choosing to invest in this system due to its effectiveness, and efficiency.

What is a Split System Air Conditioner?

A split system air conditioner is a system that allows you to both cool and warm your building, depending on your needs and the weather. It means you don’t need to have two separate systems requiring maintenance, repair and ongoing costs as you can have an all-in-one heating and cooling system for your home. 

How Does a Split System Work?

Split system air conditioners have an inside unit which connects to an outdoor condenser located in a unit outside your home. It is usually mounted against a wall. Split systems use the outside air and convert it to either warm or cool air depending on your needs before distributing into the space.   

These days, there are a variety of split systems available, including wall mounted, and multi-head systems to reach more than one space. Split system come in a variety of sizes, to suit the size of the rooms or your home.

What are the Benefits of a Split System Air Conditioner?

Split systems are popular in Australia for a reason. Their advantages extend beyond being able to both heat, and cool. Here’s a few of their other advantages: 

  • They heat and cool effectively: Because of the way they work, split systems can both heat and cool far more effectively than a portable or electric air conditioner could. By using the air from outside to heat or cool the air inside, they are far more economical and energy efficient than other options. 
  • They purify the Air: Many split systems have been approved by the National Asthma Council’s Sensitive Choice. That’s because they contain filters that purify the air from bacteria, allergens and more. This means the air in your home will remain fresh, and you won’t feel like you are cooped up inside with stale air floating in your home.
