General Helpful Information about Split System Air Conditioners

What is a Split System Air Conditioner?

A split system air conditioner consists of two main components: an indoor unit and an outdoor unit. The indoor unit is typically mounted on a wall and delivers cool or warm air into your living space, while the outdoor unit is installed outside your home or office and expels the heat absorbed from the inside.

Benefits of Split System Air Conditioners

Energy Efficiency: Split systems are known for their energy-efficient operation. They use inverter technology to maintain the desired temperature with minimal energy consumption.

Quiet Operation: The design of split systems ensures quiet operation, making them ideal for bedrooms, living rooms, and offices where noise can be a disturbance.

Temperature Control: These units provide precise temperature control, allowing you to set and maintain your preferred indoor climate with ease.

Versatility: Split systems can be used for both cooling and heating, providing year-round comfort regardless of the season.

Aesthetic Appeal: The indoor units are sleek and modern, blending seamlessly with your interior decor.

Maintenance Tips for Split System Air Conditioners

Regular Cleaning: Clean the filters every few weeks to ensure optimal airflow and efficiency. Dirty filters can reduce the system’s performance and increase energy consumption.

Scheduled Servicing: Arrange for professional servicing at least once a year. This will help detect any potential issues early and keep your system running smoothly.

Check Outdoor Unit: Ensure the outdoor unit is free from obstructions like leaves, dust, and debris. This will help maintain efficient heat exchange and prolong the unit’s lifespan.

Before our team arrives, please clear the area where the air conditioning unit will be installed. This includes removing any furniture, decorations, or obstructions that might be in the way. Ensuring a clear workspace will allow our technicians to work more efficiently and safely.

Inside Your Home

Indoor Unit Installation: Clear the wall and area where the indoor unit will be mounted.

Ducted Systems: Ensure that access to the attic or crawl space is unobstructed.

Outside Your Home

Outdoor Unit Installation: Clear away any debris, plants, or outdoor furniture near the location of the outdoor unit.

3. Ensure Easy Access

Our technicians will need easy access to various parts of your home or business during the installation. Make sure that pathways are clear, and any locked doors or gates are accessible.

Key Areas to Consider

Electrical Panel: Ensure that the electrical panel is accessible in case any electrical connections need to be made.

Thermostat Location: If a new thermostat is being installed, make sure the area is accessible and free of obstructions.

4. Communicate Specific Needs

If you have any specific requirements or preferences for your air conditioning installation, please communicate these to our team in advance. This includes the preferred location of units, thermostat placement, and any other special instructions.

5. Secure Pets

If you have pets, it’s a good idea to secure them in a safe area away from the installation site. This will ensure their safety and prevent them from interfering with the installation process.

6. Prepare for Potential Noise and Disruption

Installation of air conditioning systems can be noisy and may cause some disruption. Plan accordingly by informing household members or employees about the installation, so they are prepared for any temporary inconvenience.

7. Arrange for After-Installation Cleanup

Our team will clean up the work area once the installation is complete. However, having a vacuum or cleaning supplies on hand can help you quickly tidy up any remaining dust or debris.

Whether it’s cooling your home during the hot summer months or ensuring a comfortable work environment, your new system is designed to provide reliable performance and energy efficiency.

Placement Matters

Indoor Unit: Imagine a gentle wave of cool air washing over you. The ideal spot for your indoor unit is high on a wall, and centrally located for even airflow. Think 2.5 to 3m from the floor for optimal efficiency, with some clearance on either side for future maintenance by our technicians.

Outdoor Unit: This hardworking unit needs some breathing room! Choose a well-ventilated location on a sturdy, external wall. Direct sunlight is a no-no, so consider shaded areas. Keep the unit away from shrubs and fences to avoid airflow blockage.
