Why Choose Split System Air Conditioning?

There are several reasons why split system air conditioning systems are a popular choice.

A split system means that the noisiest part of the air conditioner can be housed outside, with the quieter part inside, so your house stays cool without the noise.

You can also choose to fit multiple cooling units in different rooms so you can control the temperature to suit you. Most of our units can be used for heating your home too, so it’s an all-year-round solution.

Split system air conditioning units are easy to maintain, simple to operate and cost-effective. By having multiple units, this air conditioning system is ideal for larger homes with multiple rooms or floors too.

This also means you can save money on your bills as you don’t waste energy in the rooms you aren’t using. This energy efficiency also means that split system units can be better for the environment.

We even have a range of small units that are ideal for properties where space is limited and our units are stylish and unobtrusive.

How Are Split System AC Units Installed?

Compared to other AC systems, split system AC installation is relatively straightforward but always needs to be carried out by a qualified professional.

At O’Brien Electrical, all of our team are trained to the highest standards with decades of experience installing air conditioning systems. We will help you to decide the best place for different units can go, outside and inside your house.

We will then measure up, install the system and make sure the units are all connected to each other and to the power supply.

They will then make sure your system is working properly and have the job all sorted in a day, or two at the most.

At O’Brien Electrical we also offer air conditioning maintenance services so you can keep your system running efficiently.

How Much Does Split System Air Conditioning Installation Cost?

What is a reverse cycle air conditioner?

Reverse cycle air conditioning allows you to enjoy the best of both worlds – your home will be cool in summer and warm in winter. Sounds good right? Choosing this type of system means there’s no need for different cooling and heating systems, and even if the cooler temperatures are short-lived, you can be comfortable without any extra outlay.

How does reverse cycle air conditioning work?

A reverse cycle air conditioner uses a heat pump and works by employing the principles of heat exchange. The heat pump absorbs the heat from the air and distributes it as necessary. Where a reverse cycle system excels is being able to reverse its refrigeration cycle, so that the heat energy can be transferred into your environment as required.

How does the heat pump work when it’s put in reverse mode?

A heat pump has what’s called a reversing valve and it’s this that performs the magical switch from heating to cooling. By changing the direction of the refrigerant flow, the system can either move warm air to outside or transfer it inside. This means you can warm or cool your house with ease.

Why choose reverse cycle air conditioning?

  • Low outlay – you only need to buy one device
  • More space – none of the clutter of multiple fans or heaters
  • Perfect flexibility at the touch of a button – ideal for places that are hot in the daytime but chilly at night

Heat pump air conditioners

This is another term for a reverse cycle air conditioning system – the name covers any system that is able to heat a space as well as cool it. They work by using the heat pump to reverse the function of the refrigerant and allow the heat from the atmosphere to be either expelled from your home – making it cooler – or redistributed around your space to make it warmer.

What kinds of heat pump systems are available?

You can get a heat pump system in a variety of forms, including:

  • Split systems
  • Wall or window-mounted
  • Cassette units
  • Multi-split systems
  • Ducted systems

Heat pump systems also work well as dehumidifiers, and because they filter the air, they keep your environment fresh and clean as well as making your home more comfortable. They offer an energy-efficient solution to excess humidity and are a great option for anyone who needs top-notch flexibility, as well as being a good choice for everyone with an eye on saving a few dollars.

Which system should I choose?

Deciding which air conditioning system is best for your home is tricky, and making the best choice is essential. At O’Brien Electrical, you’ll find a team with outstanding expertise and a real knack for helping you weigh up the pros and cons of all the different systems available. We’ll help you figure out which will save the most energy, which will save the most cash and of course, which system will keep your home just the way you like it.

How Often Should I Service My Air Conditioning System?

We recommend servicing your air conditioning system at least once a year. This includes a professional clean, checking the refrigerant levels and ensuring the thermostat is accurate. This will not only keep your air conditioning system performing optimally, but also extend its overall lifespan.

Is It Cheaper To Repair Or Replace My Split System Air Conditioner? 

In some cases, it can be more cost-effective to replace your air conditioner rather than repair it. This will depend on how well the air conditioning unit has been maintained over its lifetime and the fault at issue. If your unit is experiencing difficulties, our expert team can assess your current unit and make a recommendation that suits your budget and needs.
