How the installation will affect which model you should buy


Before buying a split air conditioner system of any kind, you should know some important information :

  • KW or Kilowatt rating. This is not the energy consumed or required, but a measure of cooling capacity. Each air conditioner has a different cooling capacity. The kW rating is where it is calculated for every model. Usually, split ACs are available in variations of 0.5kW starting at 2.0 and going right through to 10, 20 and 40. The split systems generally finish at 10, and the industrial ducted systems start. The split system air conditioner size you need depends a lot upon the area they have to cool. Larger units are therefore required for bigger rooms. Bedrooms in Australia can be cooled by a 2.0 in 60 % of cases. 2.5 for slightly larger and 3.5 for the largest master bedroom with a walk in robe or ensuite attached.
  • Multi head Split Conditioners – These units are rarely used by A.C.Expert because, despite less pieces in total number, they are actually more expensive than three separate systems. It’s bizarre when you first consider it. Mitsubishi explained it as : we manufacture thousands of individual machines per year, but literally only get a few hundred requests for multi units. So the time spent setting up machines for the run and other manufacturing costs make these multi head systems far more expensive than 3 separate systems. The only time we would recommend something like a multi head is in a unit or flat where there is no possibility of mounting the condensers in separate locations, or the architect specifies this particular unit.
  • Limitations, life expectancy and servicing : If you install an air con where there is a large amount of air escaping such as a shop door that’s constantly open, the unit simply won’t do it’s job. The air must be contained. Opening a door occasionally is fine, If you do have a shop or business, there are products like air curtains that nearly completely solve this problem. Home windows need to be kept shut, and doors of rooms you do not wish cooled, closed. Life expectancy on the crap brands air con from our crap page is exactly the warranty. You’ll be lucky to get a month longer, and most often, a lot shorter. Mid range units will last anywhere from five to eight years and the top three as listed very rarely fail before ten. More often than not exceeding fifteen years. Splits require very little servicing if your filters are cleaned twice a year. Perhaps a full strip down and clean service every five years for a well used system is all that’s required. The outdoor unit, providing it has been installed correctly is completely maintenance free.

Basically, split ACs are the most common choice for cooling your home or business today. For good reason. They are quiet, efficient and keep us from expiring on the hottest summer days and coldest winter mornings.
