There are a few factors which influence what sort of air conditioner you need for your home or business. Modern aircon systems are mainly divided into two kinds; split and ducted systems. Each of these has their merits, depending on what air exactly you need to condition. This calculation may also lead to others, or may not. If this sounds complicated, that’s not surprising. As experts in air conditioning Newcastle homeowners and businesses trust, we give the best advice on matching aircon with space.
Thinking about space is important when choosing an AC system. One of the main choices to make is whether you see each room as a separate space. Split systems treat the air in individual rooms, regardless of those around them. Originally, external units used to treat one room at a time; now they can deal with a few. The principle is still pretty much the same, however; each room stands on its own.
Split systems are perfectly adequate for many homes and small businesses. If rooms, offices or storage spaces aren’t used very often, there’s no point in treating their air. Unless goods will suffer in this environment, money spent on aircon will be wasted. Also, when rooms do need opening up, a split system will deal with old air quite quickly.
Ducted systems, by contrast, treat whole floors or zones at the same time. These are powerful systems, which only have one processing unit, usually hidden in a ceiling space. Within the zone being treated, temperatures and humidity are never allowed to stray beyond certain limits. These systems are expensive to install, but efficient to run. For larger premises, they are often more cost effective than split systems.
