Split System Heating
Split system heating is a great way to air condition or heat single rooms and smaller open spaces. This system also allows you to select the rooms you want to air condition instead of having to heat the entire house.
The most common residential split system is made up of two units – an outdoor unit, which contains the compressor, and an indoor unit that provides the conditioned air into the space.
Split systems utilise the DC inverter technology, which means they automatically regulate the power applied to the compressor to provide more precise climate control, low noise levels, and elimination of temperature fluctuations – all while using less energy.
You can choose to have wall mounted or floor standing split system units, and, with a wide variety of models available, you will definitely be able to find one that suits your needs and requirements.
Best suited to homes where you spend most of your time in one or two areas.
WHY SPLIT SYSTEM HEATING?
Split system heating units are ideal for small homes, apartments, townhouses and other compact areas. As the compressor is installed outside the house and the indoor unit can be wall mounted, it does not take up much space indoors.
Instead of having to heat the entire house, the split system allows you to choose the rooms you want to air condition. For instance, you may only want to install it in the bedrooms, or in the main living area where your family spends the most time.
As split system units use individual thermostats for each room, you have complete control over how warm the room gets and how much energy you use. You can also choose not to turn on units in rooms that are not occupied. These help to lower the bills in the long run.
Split systems are known to have low noise levels, as its outdoor unit – which contains the noisy parts like the fan and the condenser – is located outside the house. This makes it ideal for areas of the home that need to be a bit quieter, such as the baby’s room.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I use split system heating for cooling too?
Most modern air conditioning systems have reverse-cycle technology, which allows them to heat and cool your home. To find out more, please speak to our team and we will be able to assist you further.
Do I need to clean the air filters regularly?
Yes. The filters are designed to catch dust and microbes, but if not regularly cleaned they can clog up. Blocked filters can reduce the air conditioner’s efficiency, which could lead to higher running costs.
How often should I clean the filters?
It is recommended that you clean the filters every few weeks, but it also depends on how often you use the air conditioner. The general rule is, the more you use it, the more often the filters should be cleaned.
Can I add another indoor unit to an existing split system outdoor unit?
No you can’t. Only Multi Split Systems can operate multiple indoor units with one outdoor unit.
