Be cool & in complete control.

Split System air conditioning is ideal for those who spend the most time in just one or two areas in their homes. With this system, you get to select the rooms you want to air condition instead of having to cool the entire house.

So what is a split system? It does not mean it will heat and cool (although it can), but, like its name suggests, it means the system is split into two parts – one that is indoor, and the other outdoor.

The indoor unit is the part that is located within the home, and provides the conditioned air into the space. The outdoor unit, meanwhile, is also known as the condensing unit, and is situated outside the house. It contains the compressor and pumps refrigerant to and from its companion indoor unit.

Although the most popular split systems style is the Wall Split, there are also other options – the Floor Consoles, Bulk-Head Units, Cassette Style and Under Ceiling Type.

Why split systems?

Modern and stylish design

There are several reasons why split system air conditioners are gaining popularity, and one of them is the style factor. Many split system units today come in sleek design, making them a great addition that complements the modern décor and surroundings of the home or office.


The split system is also flexible – you can select the rooms you want to air condition. For instance, you may only want to install it in the baby’s room to keep the little one nice and comfortable, or in the main living area where you spend most of your time, or in certain rooms that lack airflow or ventilation.


For small homes, apartments, townhouses and other compact spaces, split system cooling units are a good choice, as the compressor is installed outside the house, and the indoor unit can be a compact floor-standing unit or wall mounted.


Split systems are economical, as you can choose to buy and install one unit at a time. It also uses individual thermostats for each room, giving you complete control over how cool the room gets and how much energy you use, which helps lower the bills in the long run.

Easy installation

Unlike traditional HVAC units, a split system is easier to install as it does not require the use of long and expensive ducts. All it needs are small holes in walls to accommodate the copper tubes and wiring. The indoor unit can also be up to 100 feet away from the outdoor unit.

Quiet operation

If you are looking for a quiet air conditioner, the split system is your answer. It is quiet enough that you can install it in a nursery. This is because the outdoor unit, which contains the fan and the condenser – the noisy culprits – is located outside the house.

Air purification features

Many split system air conditioners today come with air purification features that are able to trap even microscopic airborne dust particles. This is a huge plus point for anyone who wants to have clean air in their homes, but especially so for those who suffer from allergies and/or hay fever.
