Choosing the Right Air Conditioning System

What are the type of Air Conditioning Systems to choose from?

Can’t stand the idea of sweltering through another summer without air conditioning? Or shivering through another winter? It’s time to get an air conditioning system and our easy guide is designed to help you choose one that’s perfect for you. 

For instance should you opt for a reverse cycle Split System or a reverse cycle Ducted System? Which would be best for your type of home? And what even is a Multi-Head Split System?

At Rapid Cold, air conditioning systems are what we are experts in. So whether you just want to cool down a couple of rooms, or want the ultimate in climate control over your entire home, we make finding the perfect air conditioning system a breeze.

Here are the three main types of Air Conditioning Solutions you can choose from.

1. Split System Air Conditioning

Split Systems are ideal for:

  • Heating and cooling,
  • Saving on running costs with high energy efficiency ratings,
  • Individual control, and,
  • Great for compact spaces.

What’s a Split System?

Quite simply, a Split System is designed to heat or cool individual areas of your home. For instance, you may only want to air condition the baby’s room, or maybe the main living area where you do most of your entertaining. Or perhaps your own bedroom, for those humid nights. With a Split System, the compressor is installed outside your house and the unit that passes air into the house is either discreetly wall mounted or a compact floor-standing unit.

What are the advantages of a Split System?

There are two main benefits.

  • The first is that a Split System is more economical than other types of Air Conditioning Systems, as you’re only buying and installing one unit at a time and using less energy than other systems.
  • The second benefit of a Split System is that they allow you to select the rooms you want to air condition. So no more worrying about the bill for heating or cooling the entire house.

2. Multi-Head Split Systems

Multi Head Split Systems are ideal for:

  • Heating and cooling multiple rooms with matching head units and only one outdoor!
  • Great for homes with limited outdoor space eliminating the need for multiple compressors.
  • Individual control.
  • Great alternative for existing homes, apartments or townhouses where a ducted system is unable to be installed.

What’s a Multi Split System?

In every family or couple, there’s always someone who loves the room to be icy cold while the other wants comfort without chill. A Multi Head Split System lets you run multiple air conditioners with just one outside compressor, giving you independent temperature control over each room. You can choose which rooms you want air conditioned and the type of indoor you want throughout. Now that’s multi choice! So, check out Mitsubishi Electric for more information.

What are the advantages of a Multi Head Split System?

There are three key benefits.

  • Firstly, it’s a convenient, economical air solution, allowing maximum comfort, with minimum running costs, because you can heat or cool rooms exactly as you need.
  • Secondly, with just one outdoor unit, you can choose up to 8 different kinds of indoor units to suit each rooms décor. Choose from wall mounted, duct connected, floor standing ceiling suspended or a cassette type unit.
  • Thirdly, separate remotes let you tailor and control the climate in each room, so everyone’s happy.

3. Reverse Cycle Ducted Air Conditioning

Reverse Cycle Ducted Systems are ideal for:

  • Heating and cooling your entire home.
  • When you want a discreet look along with ultimate comfort.
  • When you want one main control that determines which areas receive heating or cooling via zone control.

What’s a Reverse Cycle Ducted System?

When you want your whole home to be a comfort zone, Reverse Cycle Ducted Air Conditioning Systems are your all-in-one climate control solution. All it takes is a discreetly positioned outdoor unit and an indoor unit concealed in either your ceiling or under your floor, with flexible ducting distributing conditioned air via vents throughout your home.

What are the advantages of a Reverse Cycle Ducted System?

There are four main advantages.

  • First, you have the choice to install a Ducted System into a new home or it can be tailored to suit your existing one.
  • Secondly, you’ll hardly know it’s there – only the controller and grilles are visible inside your home and with all its technology hidden away, it’s the quietest of all air conditioning solutions.
  • Thirdly, ducted air conditioning will not only enhance your lifestyle, it will significantly add to the value of your home.
  • Last, but not least, you enjoy the flexibility to heat or cool every room and can zone control your home to maximise energy efficiency.
