A split system is made up of two components that work together to pump cool air throughout your home. Here’s how:
- The compressor in the outdoor unit pumps refrigerant to the indoor unit through a refrigerant line.
- The indoor unit contains an evaporator coil that helps to cool the air as it passes over it. As the refrigerant enters the evaporator coil, it absorbs heat from the indoor air, causing it to evaporate and turn into a gas.
- The indoor unit's fan blows the now-cooled air into the room. Meanwhile, the hot refrigerant gas is sent back to the outdoor unit.
- In the outdoor unit, the compressor condenses the refrigerant gas, which raises its temperature and pressure. It then passes through the condenser coil and releases the heat outside. Split system installations are relatively simple and can be done within a day. Book in your installation with AtlantisProjex today!
How a multi system air conditioner works
A multi-system air conditioner combines multiple indoor units with a single outdoor unit to cool various areas within your space effectively. Here's an overview of how this system works:
The outdoor unit houses a compressor responsible for pumping refrigerant to the individual indoor units via refrigerant lines.
Each indoor unit features an evaporator coil that plays a crucial role in cooling the air passing through it. As the refrigerant travels into the evaporator coil, it absorbs warmth from the indoor air, causing it to transform into a gas state through evaporation.
Utilising its built-in fan, the indoor unit circulates the newly cooled air into its designated area. Meanwhile, the now-warmed refrigerant gas is directed back to the outdoor unit for the next stage of the cooling process.
Within the outdoor unit, the compressor performs a condensation process on the refrigerant gas. This action results in an elevation of the gas's temperature and pressure. The high-pressure gas flows through the condenser coil and releases the accumulated heat to the exterior environment.
The multi-system air conditioner's intricate design ensures that each indoor unit maintains efficient cooling, providing comfort to various spaces while being linked to a single outdoor unit.
The installation of a multi-system air conditioner is a straightforward process that can often be completed within a day. To experience the benefits of enhanced indoor cooling in multiple areas, schedule your installation with AtlantisProjex today!
Split system installations work best in properties that prefer zoned cooling and a quieter environment. For instance, offices or households with younger children who sleep throughout the day. With a split system installation, you can expect:
- Energy efficiency — Split system air conditioners use less than energy traditional window or portable air conditioners, resulting in lower energy bills.
- Minimal noise — As the compressor is outside, split air conditioning systems tend to be quieter than traditional air conditioners. This can make them a good choice for bedrooms or other quiet spaces.
- Greater temperature control — Split systems can cool individual rooms or areas, helping you pinpoint the areas you want to cool in your home.
- Easy installation — The installation of split system air conditioners is relatively straightforward, as there is no need for extensive ductwork or complicated wiring. Reverse cycle air conditioning systems are typically more durable than other system types, as they are designed to operate in a wide range of temperatures and climates. Best of all, reverse cycle air conditioning systems are often quieter than conventional systems, providing an undisturbed living environment.
A multi system combines one outdoor unit with several indoor units, cooling multiple areas. Unlike split systems, it uses a single outdoor unit for efficient cooling in various spaces.
Multi systems offer cost savings, flexible cooling, and space efficiency. Using one outdoor unit for multiple areas reduces installation complexity and energy consumption.
Yes, multi systems allow mixing various indoor units, like wall-mounted and ceiling cassette types. This versatility suits different room layouts and cooling preferences while maximising comfort.
