Types of System
Wall Mounted Air Conditioning Systems
Wall mounted air conditioners are the most popular type of system and come in a vast variety of styles to make every room the perfect comfort setting.
Ceiling Cassette Air Conditioning Systems
This system tends to be extremely popular in offices or classrooms with suspended ceilings. This system’s fitting is designed to take up no more than one or two ceiling tile spaces. The only visible part of the systems is the decorative lower facing grille, while most of the machine is above the ceiling and left unseen.
The aesthetically pleasing look of this unit is one of its main advantages. However, another key selling point is the design of the unit allows its cooling (or heating) capacity to be spread across 4 directions, creating a very wide area of reach. Amazingly, 3 or 4 wall mounted units would be needed to do the same level of cooling as a single ceiling cassette air conditioner.
When there is no suspended ceiling to install a cassette air conditioner, an under-ceiling air conditioner may be fitted provided there is sufficient ceiling height to hold an under-ceiling unit. They unit works by lifting air vertically into the system and the redistributed the processed air horizontally across the ceiling, avoiding directly targeting occupants within the room, and avoiding others. The design of these types of units are relatively aesthetic as the entire unit will be on display within the room, however, as they are rather large, they do inevitably look like exaggerated items to hang from a ceiling.
Ducted Air Conditioning Systems
Low Wall-Mounted Air Conditioning Systems
Multi Split Air Conditioning Systems
Single Air Conditioning Split
Multi Air Conditioning Split
These systems are almost the same as the split systems, however, the slight difference is that the single external unity is connected to multiple indoor units throughout the home.
A larger, stronger condenser unit will be needed for this type of system; however, it does still only require the same type of single units as other systems, and even allows the potential for a variety of indoor systems to be used in different rooms, all from the same condenser unit.
Between 2 and 4 internal units can be linked to a single external block within a multi split system. However, one of the main restrictions with this type of system is that if the outside unit breaks down, all the interior units are thus non-functional. Because of this, where external space allows, several outside units are recommended so that in case of breakdown there is a back-up. This increase in units will seldom decrease the cost-effectiveness of you units.
