FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions
What is an split air conditioning unit used for?
Air conditioning can help to regulate the temperature of your living space. Creating the perfect balance of heating or cooling for any room in your home. Split air conditioning units are typically made up for two parts, an indoor unit and an outdoor unit. The indoor unit provides hot or cold air, which can be delivered by a wall mount, floor mount, ducted or cassette unit.
What is a multi-split air conditioner?
A Multi-split air conditioner is very similar to a split air conditioning unit. The Multi-split allows multiple indoor units to be supplied by a single outdoor unit. Perfect for a home with more than one room that requires heating or cooling.
Does air conditioning only provide cooling?
Air conditioning units are air-to-air heat pumps, which means the refrigerant cycle in the indoor and outdoor unit can be reversed to provide heating or cooling.
Is air conditioning costly to run?
