The advantages of a wall hung split system air conditioner for summer

Keeping you cool in summer & warm in winter

Summer is almost here and we all know how hot it can get in Perth. The best way to stay comfortable indoors, whether it’s your home or office, is with air conditioning, and split system air conditioning is one of the best solutions for keeping your home cool. The problem is that a fully ducted split air-conditioning can be quite an expensive initial outlay and not everyone can afford this option.  Putting a wall hung split system in just the rooms that you use the most can allow you to get all the benefits of reverse cycle air conditioning, but at a fraction of the cost.

A split system air conditioner consists of two parts.  The indoor unit, or fancoil is installed inside, while a condenser or compressor, is installed outside.  The fancoil in a ducted system is hidden inside your roof feeding the air to your entire home through a system of ducts, while with the wall hung split system it is installed on the wall and only cools and heats the room in which it is installed.

Here are some reasons why you should install a wall hung split system air conditioner in your home.

  1. Easy to install

As these systems are ductless they are relatively quick and easy to install, when compared to a ducted system. You can install the indoor unit about 30m away from the outdoor unit and all you need is a small hole in the wall for the tubing. The condenser, which is installed outside, can be installed on a flat section of the roof, or on the ground out of sight. It does not have to sit next to the window.

Always make sure you use accredited professionals to install your air conditioner, no matter what type it is.

  1. More eco-friendly & saves you money

The split systems cool one room only, and so use less energy than an unzoned ducted system.

  1. Quiet

Most modern indoor units are very quiet and you won’t even notice that they are on while they gently fill the room with cool air. The outdoor unit, which is the noisiest part, sits outside the house – and it can be hidden away, or installed on brackets on the roof or wall so as not to bother anyone.

  1. Cools in summer and warms in winter

A reverse cycle split system not only keeps you cool in summer but can be reversed to heat in winter. This means it doesn’t stand idle in the colder months, but is rather an all-year-round climate control mechanism.

  1. Easy to control

Most of these systems come with a user-friendly remote control allowing you to set the temperature and switch it on and off as you wish, from the comfort of your couch.

  1. Low maintenance

Wall hung split systems do not require too much effort to keep them functioning efficiently. They have filters that can be removed and cleaned fairly easily, and the outdoor units can be easily accessed, cleaned and repaired when required.

  1. Flexibility

You can also install a number of indoor units to one outdoor condenser – up to four units for the ductless mini split system, and more for the larger units. This allows you to choose which rooms you want to install your climate control units in.

  1. Variety

There is a large range of different models designed to suit your individual requirements. Whether you live in a small apartment or a large home, there is something that will suit your needs and budget.

  1. Practical and out the way

You can also install the indoor units in a variety of positions, either suspended from the ceiling or mounted into a drop ceiling, or in the usual wall hung position, meaning it will sit out of the way and won’t infringe on the space or aesthetics of the room.
