COOLING

Split System Air Conditioning

How a split system works

A split system, as its name suggests, is split into two or more operating components. Typically, it consists of two operating components: the fan and evaporator, which is wall-mounted inside the building, and a compressor unit, which is placed outside the building either on the ground or hung on the wall.

In short, a split system air conditioner works by extracting hot air and humidity from the air inside the building and expelling them through the compressor into the air outside the building.

Refrigerants inside the compressor then cool air from outside and pass them into the indoor unit though copper pipes, where the fan blows the chilled air around the room.

When used for heating, the system works inversely: it extracts cold air and blows warm air around the room.

HOW EVAPORATIVE COOLING WORKS

Have you ever been to the beach, or a lake or river for a swim to cool off on a hot summer’s day? Did you notice that the temperature seemed that little bit cooler than the surrounding environment? It seems cooler because some of the hot air blows out over the ocean and evaporates some of the surface water. This process absorbs some of the heat in the surrounding air and effectively lowers the temperature. This is exactly the same process that occurs in an evaporative cooler. The sea breeze is nature’s evaporative cooler. In a man-made system, hot air from the outside enters the cooling unit. Most often the system is fixed to the roof. If yours is a home that is a period-based home, or made from brick, chances are you will experience the full force of the summer as your home heats up during heat waves. You can combat this with an evaporative cooling installation. Melbourne is known for its extremely hot summer weather, but with an evaporative air conditioning system, you can always remain comfortable. Once the installation of your unit is complete, the air is then passed through a heat exchange and heat is “removed” from the air. This is the same process that occurs near a large body of water. The cooled air is then filtered and blown into a room, effectively cooling it down. This exchange is done using moistened Chillcel® pads. The hot air within your home, office, (or building) is forced from the room(s) through open windows and doors. For your average-sized home, this recycling of hot-to-cool air takes a few minutes. Thus, the air in your home or office is effectively “refreshed” every 2 minutes.

Advantages of a split system

Largely due to its simple design, there are many reasons why split system installation is an efficient heating and cooling choice. Some advantages include:

  • Quick and easy to operate. Split systems heat or cool spaces very quickly and are easy to control via a remote control.
  • Deliver warm or cool air only in the spaces where it’s needed and when it’s needed. No need to waste money heating unused spaces.
  • Cost-effective to install. Indoor and outdoor units are connected by a couple of small pipes and electrical cables, so very little modification to your home is required to install fittings. No ductwork means less labour costs, quicker and more affordable installation.
  • Because they are powered by electricity, split systems can be subsidised by solar power, making them a cost-effective solution for homes powered with the help of solar panels.
  • Low maintenance costs. The indoor components of split system air conditioners contain filters which can easily be removed and cleaned by the owner – no call-outs are necessary to clean the indoor component.
  • Most split systems have heating and cooling capabilities as standard, so you can use one system year-round.
  • Air purification. Many models will purify the air, so that dust and allergens are not circulated through the building.
