What is a Split System Inverter?
Victoria’s unpredictable weather doesn’t just make it harder to get dressed in the morning. Maintaining a consistent indoor temperature is nearly impossible when the outdoor weather patterns rapidly change from hot to cold.
Whether you own a home or a business, maintaining a steady indoor temperature is vital to your comfort and health. That’s why you need an air conditioning system that can stand up to the test.
In comes the split system HVAC, an advanced AC system that regulates your indoor climate quickly and efficiently. Also called a home comfort system or central heating and air-conditioning system, a split system inverter is essential to keeping a home warm in the winter or cool in the summer.
What is an Inverter System?
A split system inverter AC regulates temperature by increasing or decreasing the speed of a compressor motor but never turning it fully off. This process prevents dramatic spikes or drops in your room temperature. Plus, running the motor constantly in the background actually uses about 30% less energy than a standard fixed speed air conditioning system.
Parts of a Split System AC
The split system air unit consists of five intuitive parts that help it control the temperature in your room and produce clean air. Here are the main components:
Indoor unit, such as a furnace or an air handler
Outdoor unit, either an air conditioner or a heat pump
Thermostat, programmable or nonprogrammable
Indoor air quality component, like a filtration system or humidity control product
Ductwork that allows conditioned air to move from equipment to rooms inside the home
Benefits of Split System Air Conditioners
Split system air conditioners are ideal for inconsistent climates because they keep the indoor temperature consistent without driving up your energy bill.
Let’s take a look at the following scenario. You wake up to a chilly morning of about 11º C. By the afternoon, it’s a sweltering 30º. A standard system AC would have to turn on in the morning to heat the home and then turn on again in the afternoon to cool the home, even though the hot air had already built up. An inverted system would remain running the entire time to keep the home at a consistent temperature despite the drastic outdoor changes. The standard system is working twice as hard and only half as effective.
The following benefits add to the inverted system AC experience:
- Simple installation and maintenance
- Quiet operation with a motor constantly cruising rather than clunking on and off.
- Climate control for heating and cooling
- Inexpensive to install and operate.
- Easy to control by remote
- Energy saving
- Sleek design
