What is a single split system?
A split system refers to a refrigerated type air conditioner consisting two or more main operating components. One component is the evaporator (commonly known as indoor unit) which is installed inside the room and one is the condenser (commonly known as outdoor unit) which is located outside the building. Refrigeration pipes or copper pipes are used to connect the two.
Why choose single split systems?
Single split air conditioners are ideal for heating or cooling one area or one room of your house. They are easy to install and great in temperature control and efficiency. Split air conditioners come in either Cooling Only or Reverse Cycle (which offers heating and cooling). Split systems also come in inverters (variable speed compressor) and non inverter or fix speed (single speed on and off compressor). Inverters are are more efficient to run, can achieve desired temperature quicker and quieter to run than fix speed units. They are also more smooth when running and able to handle a greater range of temperatures then non inverter systems. Cold Bear Air recommends inverter technology for offering greater comfort to your home.
What air conditioner brand should I get?
Each air conditioner brand makes different air conditioners. They offer different functions and features. They are also different in factors such as efficiency, quietness and air flow rate. There is no one air conditioner for all and it depends on what functions and features you want or need. Cold Bear Air offers a wide range of air conditioner brands including Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Midea, Hitachi, Toshiba, Mitsubishi Electric, Fujitsu, Daikin and Panasonic for you to choose from and our sales technicians are able to give you the best choice for air conditioning.
Types of evaporator in single split systems
The indoor unit (evaporator) comes in various types to suit different situations.
Wall mounted type: The most commonly used split system, its evaporator is designed in such a way that it mounts top of a wall. It gains popularity from its cost effective install.
Bulkhead type: This type of split system is designed to be installed in bulkheads (concealed plaster boxes), usually with linear slot diffusers installed to provide openings for air flow. This type of split system is ideal for those who want the unit to be unobtrusive.
Ceiling cassette type: This type of split system allows the evaporator to be suspended in ceiling with its panel exposed. This is mostly used in commercial application such as offices. It is good at distributing air evenly inside a area with minimum air drafts.
Under ceiling console type: This type of split system is again mostly used for commercial purposes, it is famous for its high air flow. Used when cooling performance is the first priority.
Floor Standing type: This type of split system are mostly used when there is no room for wall mounted split type. Some prefer it as it has a more classic appearance.
