Climatic changes are no longer confined to any particular country and have affected almost every country including Australia. Considering hot and humid or extremely cold climates, there is a great need for people to add resilience to their homes and lifestyles by making use of voluminous means offered by advancing air conditioning technology.

Accordingly, most homes, commercial or industrial units have installed various types of air conditioners, such as a window or portable air conditioners and many more.  However, usually, for homes,  split systems of air conditioners have been considered the most efficient option largely due to their functioning, effectiveness, reliability, and quiet operations.

Split systems come with many advanced features like:

  • Inverter technology- for better temperature control and energy efficiency
  • Sensors to detect movement and increase energy efficiency
  • Voice control- through Alexa and Google Assistant
  • Smartphone control

What is a Split System air conditioner?

As obvious from the name itself, a split system air conditioner is split into two units – one is mounted on the wall inside your home and the other one is fixed outside. The indoor unit consists of air filters, a fan, and an evaporator coil whereas the outdoor unit is comprised of the compressor and condenser coil. Both indoor and outdoor units are connected with the help of refrigerant pipes that contain refrigerated gas.

The function of the outdoor unit is to suck in air and pump it through the refrigerant piping to cool it down.  The indoor unit blows the cooled air into your home to provide you with a much-needed respite from the hot or humid climate.

Since the indoor units are connected with the help of a refrigerant pipe,  you can install multiple indoor units and connect them to a single outdoor unit. Such split systems are referred to as multi-split systems so as to have more comfort in your home besides offering better control and flexibility.

Split systems are not only meant for providing you cooling only and can be used for heating too by installing reverse cycle air conditioning that can provide you hot air too to keep you warm in cold weather.

What is the reverse cycle split system?

The reverse cycle air conditioners in split systems can serve both purposes i.e. heating and cooling so as to provide comfortable temperatures in your home or office throughout the year.

During hot days, when you need a cool environment, reverse cycle air conditioning systems extract the heat from the indoor air and blow it outside to make your home cool.  Whereas in winters, it can be shifted to the heating mode to make this air conditioning system work the other way round.

In heating mode, reverse cycle split systems draw heat from outside and transfer it to the indoor unit to facilitate warm temperatures inside.
