Split Systems (Reverse Cycle)

Split systems are ideal for air conditioning one room or a specific area of a home. A wide variety of models are offered to suit your requirements and are available in either wall mounted or floor standing type. Split systems are able to blend in harmoniously with almost any room in the house and there are many types of split systems to choose from.

What is a split system?

A split system, often to also referred to as reverse cycle, is one of the most popular types of air conditioning systems used in homes, a split system is ‘split’ into two units: one that’s inside, and one that’s outside. Relatively easy to install (as no ductwork is required), these systems are known for being quiet and energy efficient.

There are three types of Split Systems:
  • Wall mounted split systems
  • Floor (standing) reverse cycle split systems
  • Ducted reverse cycle split systems

    (please see Ducted Split Systems page for more specific information)

    And they come in two options:
  • Reverse Cycle (Heating & Cooling)
  • Cooling Only

    About Split Systems

    A split system air conditioner includes an outdoor unit with a compressor and condenser, plus an indoor unit that contains an air handler. Typically, there’s a lineset between these two units that houses copper refrigerant tubing, a power cable and a drain for condensation.

    Split systems are different from packaged units, which house all components in one single cabinet. They’re also not the same as window units that have a fan, compressor and coils inside a window or wall-mounted box.

    Wall mounted split systems circulate the air in each individual room. This allows your family members to individualize each particular room’s temperature without worrying about any effects on the rest of the house.

    Many people prefer split system air conditioners because of these benefits:

    Quick & Easy Installation

    When compared to traditional systems, a split system requires a lot less work to install. Not only is there no ductwork necessary, but the connector between your indoor and outdoor units only requires an opening that measures about 3 inches in diameter. Once that’s done, all that’s required is access to electricity and a location to mount your units. Manufacturers offer different lengths for refrigerant tubes, so your indoor and outdoor unit can be up to 100 feet apart.

    Energy Efficiency

    Ducted solutions can lose a lot of energy through the ductwork, and leaky ducts can see a loss of up to 30 percent in cooling energy if not installed properly or in the right environment. Since split systems offer a completely ductless design, this upsurges your energy savings and reduces money spent on future utility bills.

    They Blend With Your Décor

    With a split system air conditioner, indoor installation is highly flexible. You can suspend them from your ceiling or hang them on walls. In addition, many offer elegant and sophisticated jackets that are aesthetically appealing. Moreover, split systems are less obtrusive when compared to window units that require you either cut a hole in a wall or dedicate a window to your air conditioner.

    Quiet Operations

    An indoor ductless unit can operate as silently as 19 decibels, which is significantly quieter than a window unit. Its ductless condenser is also much slimmer in profile, and makes it easy for you to position them in various locations where noise might be a factor or there isn’t a lot of space.

    Increased Security

    A split system air conditioner is a lot more security friendly than a window unit, which offers intruders a way into your home. The small hole for your conduit doesn’t pose much threat to your home’s safety, whereas an open hole in your wall or window may target you for an easy break in.

    Flexible & Diverse

    Ductless air conditioners are great for renovations where ducting isn’t feasible, older homes with poor distribution, electrically-heated houses and homes with hydronic heating.
