What are the most common types of air conditioning systems?
Split Air Conditioning Systems
To begin with, split systems have an outside condenser unit as well as an internal cassette. This cassette has the ability to increase the capacity of the condenser. As a result, allowing it to provide cool air to lager rooms. Not to mention that you can link several cassettes to a single condenser. This system is usually known as a multi-split system.
What are the benefits of a split system?
A split system unit is cost-effective to install. It is designed to cool different size of buildings such as a small industrial unit or a big hotel and a shopping centre. Without a doubt, the cost of this system will be determined by how many cassettes you are going with and the capacity of your condensers. We can provide you with a tailored quote.
- An easy installation process
Unlike traditional systems, split systems need much less work to install. There will be no need for ductwork when it comes to installing split systems. However, an opening of about 3 inches in diameter is required for the connector between your indoor and outdoor units. All that is needed then is an access to electricity and a location for mounting your unit. Different lengths for refrigerant tubes are offered by Manufacturers. Your indoor and outdoor units can be up to 100 feet apart.
- Quiet Operations
This type of indoor ductless unit operates as quietly as 19 decibels. This is much quieter than a window unit. What is more, the ductless condenser is slimmer and can make it easy for positioning in different locations if noise might be a problem or where there is not much space.
- More Energy Efficient
A lot of energy is lost through ductwork. With leaky ducts you can have a loss of up to 30 percent in the cooling energy. Energy efficiency problems can occur when you have uninsulated ductwork or ductwork that has been installed in unconditioned spaces. Due to their ductless design, split systems can increase your energy savings and reduces money spent on future utility bills. In fact, ductless air conditioners, in some cases, can reach double the efficiency of a standard air conditioner.
- More Security
When it comes to security, then a split system is more secure than a window unit, which can enable intruders a way to break into your home. There will not be any security threats from the small hole in your conduit as it does not represent much threat to the safety of your home. A large opening in your wall or window, however, can make you a target for intruders.
Split systems have the ability to cool different places of your home through splitting the space into zones. To put it simply, each zone will have its own thermostat. When you have separate thermostats, you will be able to control each area separately. As a result, you will use less energy while saving money at the same time.
Ductless air conditioners can be perfect for renovations where ducting is not possible. It can also be useful in older homes with poor distribution or electrically-heated houses and homes with hydronic heating.
- They Go Well with Your Décor
Indoor installation is very flexible with a split air conditioner. They can be either suspended from the ceiling or hung on walls. Moreover, Jackets can be used to make them look more elegant and sophisticated. What is more, unlike window units which require you to make a hole in your wall or fill your window space, split systems are less obtrusive.

Cassette Air Conditioning Systems
To put it simply, cassettes are, in fact, the interior part of a split or a multi split unit. Their job is to turn liquid refrigerant from the condenser into a vapour. This vapour will then be vented into the room. Without a doubt, newer models have more efficiency to do that than older ones. That is why, it is common for them to be replaced in order to get the best out of your unit.
Cassettes come in several and different sizes. There are wall or ceiling mounting options and models. They are also compatible with most of major manufactures of condensing systems. We can help you replace an existing cassette and ensure more efficiency. Contact us for more information.

What are the advantages of a Cassette System?
- Cassette systems ensure a good distribution of air in the room due to their powerful fans, which can regulate the proper distribution of air in larger spaces.
- Because they are installed on the ceiling, they can save a significant amount of space. This can also make them almost invisible.
- They are silent because the second unit of the cassette is usually located outside. That is why they are perfect for offices or residents of a building.
- The thermostat of these air conditioning systems can be programmed at your request. The same goes for fan speed. You can adjust the room temperature and thus save on monthly electricity bills.
- Their thermostat can be programmed at your request. You can also control the speed of the fan. By adjusting the temperature of the room, you can save on your monthly electricity bills.
- They are energy efficient.
Ducted Air Conditioning Systems
Ducted system, or as they sometimes called central systems, have the ability to distribute cool and warm air throughout the building. They differ from split systems in the fact that they have no internal cassette. Alternatively, cold and warm air will be fed from the external unit to grills inside through a ducting network. This, as a result, will allow them to cool more than one room at once.
These types of system are comprehensive. Therefore, much space is required for the large external condenser and the internal ducting as well. This makes them suitable for large home or office campuses.

So only one system is needed to cover large buildings with multiple rooms.
Another advantage for ducted systems is that they are quite. So you will enjoy a peaceful atmosphere whether you are at home or at the office.
Low profile look
Ducted air conditioning systems have a classy and a stylish look that can blend into your décor. Both the ducts and air conditioning vents are built into the internal workings of your property. Only the celling ducts and the control panel on display are shown internally which makes the whole system nice to look at.
The aim of zoning is to allow for the isolation of the ducted air conditioning unit in order to enjoy the cool air in the room you are occupying and without wasting energy or air in rooms which are not being used. To put is simply, you can turn off air conditioning in parts of the house which are not being used.
Easy to control
You can control a ducted air conditioning system by a simple operate push button keypad which can be located in an area of your property with high traffic. By simply pressing a button, all your zones will be flushed with cool air. And you can also turn it off just the same. What is more, timers can be set to provide your property with cool air at any time you set. You can also set the time for it to be turned off after a while.

A ducted air conditioning system can efficiently cool or heat large, multi-room areas. As a result, it can save you money on you energy bills. This is true when you use the zoning feature where you cool or heat the rooms that are being used only.
Monoblock Air Conditioning Systems
Monoblock systems are designed to be as all-in-one units. So they do not include a separate condenser. A monoblock system should be mounted on an external wall in order to be easily vented. On the other hand, window-mounted systems are available as well. They can be vented through an open window. The benefit of this is a reduction in the cost of installation. However, it will block some of the light you get into the room.
What is more, Monoblock systems come in several sizes. They can cool a room of up to 500 sq. ft. This system is perfect for smaller places, especially when you only need to cool one or two rooms.

Portable Air Conditioning Systems
Portable systems are a compact unit which comes as all-in-one monoblock systems. They can easily be moved from place to place. They include a vent pipe that should be put through an open window or a vent. This type of cooling systems are perfect for cooling temporary building like portacabins. You can also use them when your system is going through maintenance and you need a temporary solution.
Portable systems are able to cool rooms form 200 sq. ft. to 500 sq. ft. However, the precise output needed will depend on the size of the room or any other environmental considerations.
