Advantages of Split Air Conditioning Systems

With energy costs growing in leaps and bounds every year, most homeowners have resorted to split air conditioning systems to cool their houses off on hot summer days. These HVAC units contain a special capillary tubing that houses a compressor, the cooling coil, a long blower and the air filter, along with the usual electrical components. Unlike conventional air conditioners, split ACs do not require ductwork and are thus easier to install and are more energy efficient. Split air conditioning systems have many advantages over normal ACs; this article briefly looks at some of these advantages.

Saves You Money

Split air conditioning systems are much cheaper than traditional air conditioning systems in the long run. Traditional ACs have elaborate duct systems which lose a lot of energy through heat exchange. Split-system ACs, on the other hand, eliminate the need for ductwork, thus saving you a lot of energy, which translates to cheaper running costs.

Easier to install

You might want to help your HVAC contractor out and purchase a split-system air conditioner instead of the normal one. In doing so, you'll make their work a lot easier and also have your AC installed much more quickly.  All the contractor has to do is drill a three-inch hole for wiring and find a place to mount the AC uit. It is also a bit cheaper to install a split-system AC than a normal one.

Very Silent

A good split-system air conditioner will operate at no more than 60 decibels, which is pretty quiet for an air conditioner. This makes split systems an excellent choice for board rooms and conference halls where silence is a priority. You also don't have to compromise on sleep if you need a cooler bedroom.

They Look Good Anywhere

Split air conditioning systems blend seamlessly with your décor to bring the best out of your living space. Installation is very versatile, meaning you can have them on the walls, hang them from the ceilings or even tuck them quietly on top of your cabinets. Split ACs also come in a variety of appealing jackets that can easily fit your room's aesthetics.

All in all, split-system air conditioning systems are an overall great choice for anyone looking for a great alternative to your conventional AC. Feel free to contact an HVAC contractor to find out whether you can have your house fitted with a split-system air conditioning system.
