Split system air conditioning offers efficient heating and cooling for South Australian homes and businesses. With a sleek design and two main components – an indoor unit mounted on your wall and an outdoor compressor – split systems provide zoned heating and cooling, providing total comfort throughout your home.

Are you considering a new air conditioning system?

It can be difficult deciding what type of air conditioner to choose for your home. In Australia, our cooling options tend to be ducted reverse cycle air conditioning, ducted evaporative air conditioning, and wall mounted split system air conditioning.

Some key factors need to be considered when choosing an air conditioning system, such as the size and division of rooms, the age of the building, and your budget.

Every home is different, and everyone’s needs and preferences are different. The best way to choose the right system for you is to look at all the available options. For some homes, ducted systems will be the most efficient choice; for others, evaporative cooling will be more suitable.

Another option to consider is wall mounted split system air conditioning, a highly efficient and cost-effective way to control the temperature within your home or office. We work with some of the best brands in split system air conditioning, such as Daikin, Rinnai, ActronAir, Fujitsu, Hitachi, Panasonic, Mitsubishi Electric, Samsung and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries. Our friendly, expert staff can advise on the best model for your space and needs.

How a split system air conditioner works

As the name suggests, this air conditioning unit is split into two or more operating components. Split system air conditioners typically consist of two operating parts:

  1. Fan and evaporator (wall-mounted inside the building)
  2. Compressor unit (outside the building either on the ground or wall)

When used for cooling, split system air conditioners extract warm air and humidity from within a building and expels it via the compressor into the air outside a building. Refrigerants inside the compressor then cool the air from outside, pass it into the indoor unit though copper pipes, then blows chilled air inside via a fan.

When used for heating, split systems work in the opposite manner described above. Cold air is extracted from outside and converted to warm air via the compressor.
