A split type air conditioning (AC) system has two separate units, a water or air-cooled condensing unit and an air handling (cooling) unit, each positioned in different places. The air handling unit goes in the room being cooled while the condenser and compressor unit usually goes in a plant room, or on the outside of the building. The two units are then connected using piping.
Split type AC is popular due to its flexibility, cost and reliability. Because the condenser unit is on the outside of a building or in a plant room, the system is quiet and convenient to control and enjoys low operating costs.
These systems come in several models and designs so it’s essential to talk to an expert to find out the best system for your space or spaces. We can advise on the best method and location of installation, ensuring your air conditioning unit performs well and services your premises effectively.
A split type air conditioning system consists of two separate units, the condensing unit and the air handling unit. The condensing unit and air handling unit are connected using piping. The split type air conditioning system works by pumping refrigerant gas through the unit's cooling circuit. As the gas pumps through the condenser, it cools down and vaporises into a liquid. The liquid refrigerant is then pushed into the evaporator, expanding and changing back into a gas.

Not always, it depends on the amount of condensation the system is creating. Your installation expert will advise you on this.
Most home or business owners shouldn't do extensive AC maintenance themselves - hire a professional for that. However, you should be replacing your filters at least every three months, and inspect your outdoor condenser for any debris, as well. Whatever the age of your air conditioning unit, it’s important you have it serviced every 12 months or so to keep it running as safely and efficiently as possible. Regular servicing will increase its lifespan and could save you having to pay for expensive repairs.
