BlogsWhich type of Split System is the best air conditioner for you?

We know that when it comes to picking out the right kind of air conditioner for your home, the choices can be plenty and deciding what’s right for you can be confusing. Here at Arctic Refrigeration we have done the research for you, so you can pick the best kind of split system to suit your needs.


4 reasons to choose a Split System Air Conditioner

  • Cost effective – Out of all of the home air conditioning types, the split system units are the most cost effective.
  • Quiet to run – Mostly, split system air conditioning units tend to be quieter than other models of home cooling systems.
  • Wide range of sizing – With a large range of sizes, split-systems are ideal for anyone trying to effectively cool or heat any size of room.
  • Efficiency – Generally, split system air conditioning units tend to be more powerful and more efficient than the other alternatives.

Split-system’s consist of two units, the indoor unit, which is installed inside the home, and the outdoor unit. This is the general layout of the split-system but there are many different types for you to choose from.


Types of Split System Air Conditioners:

  • Wall Mounted Split Systems
  • Bulkhead Split Systems
  • Ducted Split systems
  • Multi Head Split Systems
