Picking the right cooling and heating solution for your house can be a difficult decision to make. A lot of factors should be taken into account the rooms’ division and size, your budget as well the age of your house. In order to make the right choice, investigate your options. For many homes, ducted systems are the perfect options. For others, panel heaters or evaporative cooling is better suited. Installing split system air conditioning is also a cost-effective and efficient option for heating and cooling your house.
How a Split System Works
Split systems are split into a couple of more operating components. Usually, it is composed of the fan and evaporator, mounted on the wall inside your house and a compressor unit which is put outside your house. Aspen Air has in place split systems depending upon a home’s cooling and heating needs.
The system extracts hot air and humidity from your house’s inside air and expels them through the compressor into the outside air. The compressor’s refrigerants cool the outside air and pass it into the indoor unit via copper pipes where the chilled air is blown by the fan around the room. If a split system is used for heating, it works inversely which means extracting the cold air and blowing warm air around a room.
Benefits of a Split System
Because of its simple design, installing split systems is an efficient cooling and heating decision. A number of its benefits include:
- Easy and quick to operate. A split system heats or cools spaces quickly and can be controlled easily using a remote control.
- Provides cool or warm air only in rooms that need it. Homeowners do not have to waste money heating rooms that are not used.
- Installation is cost-effective. Outdoor and indoor units are connected by electrical cables and two small pipes requiring less modification to your house for installing fitting.
- Low maintenance costs. A split system air conditioner’s indoor components have filters that can be removed and cleaned easily. Owners do not have to make call-outs to clean them.
- No need for windows- Most people use a window unit as an alternative to central air conditioning unit. However, this either requires them to either cut a hole in their wall or give up an existing window for this unit. The split system’s interior part can be placed anywhere in the house.
- Long-term savings- A split system’s initial cost is higher than a conventional one. But there is lower long-term running cost. Split air conditioning units make use of individual thermostat for every room, allowing home owners to have control over a room’s coolness and the amount of energy used.
- Simple Maintenance- It is imperative to do preventive maintenance on one’s air conditioners so it continues to work properly. With a split system, maintenance is surely a breeze. Rather than getting new filters every few months, a split air conditioning system comes with filters that must be cleaned and placed back. Occasionally, the outdoor part of the system must be cleaned. But its design provides easy and quick access to its interior ensuring a hassle-free washing.
