What is split system air conditioning?

A split system AC is split into two parts: a wall-mounted indoor unit in the room you’re cooling, and an outdoor unit that contains the compressor box. Warm air from inside is transferred outside and replaced with refreshingly cool air via a pipe that contains refrigerant gas.

What are the advantages of getting a split system air conditioner?

There are plenty of benefits, which is probably what helps makes split system aircons the most popular type of air conditioner sold in Australia. Perhaps the most attractive selling point is that many models are also reverse cycle air conditioners. This means that they can heat a room as well as cool it – giving you the ultimate 2-in-1 deal for an air conditioner that’s valid in its cooling and heating abilities all year round.

Split system air conditioners are also efficient. Most are designed using inverter technology, which adjusts compressor speed according to the room’s requirements. This is good news for both the environment and your power bill. They are also cheaper to install than ducted air conditioners which is another plus point.

You can scroll down to read split system air conditioner reviews, where consumers share what they liked the most (and least) about their split system picks. If you already have an idea of what kind of features and functions you’d prefer, you can select from the product filters on the left hand side for a more specific selection of air conditioner models.
