About Split Systems


Split Systems


A split system is designed to provide air conditioning to one or two rooms of your home.
It comprises of two units, the evaporative fan coil and the outdoor condensing unit. The term "split" refers to the fact that the two units are seperated, this allows the condensing unit to be located virtually anywhere outside.

The split system is one of the most versatile, quiet and economical forms of air conditioning available which is extremely efficient and easy to operate.
Purchasing and installing your split system from a licenced air conditioning specialist ensures that the job is done right the first time.

A refrigeration mechanic installs the system and an electrician is required to wire it. Some highly skilled electricians also carry a licence to install the air conditioning system and wire it. It is very important to make sure that you do not opt for cheap installations, as air conditioners have ozone depleting gases inside them. At Air_Max Air Conditioning all our tradesmen are fully licienced.
