Split System Air Conditioning
A split system air conditioner is ideal to cool or heat just one room or area in your home or office. Split systems still contain an outdoor and an indoor unit but eliminate the in-ceiling ducting in favour of delivering air directly from the indoor unit.
The indoor units are usually sleek in design and are intended to be mounted high on the wall. This allows air flow to effectively reach all parts of the room. There are also floor mounted systems which are still mounted to the wall but at a lower level. These systems do still require clear space in front of them so can not be mounted behind couches. A further variation on the indoor unit can be mounted inside the ceiling and these are called Cassette models.
The capacity of the outdoor unit is determined by the size of the area you wish to service. Under-powered systems will have to run at maximum output more often. This will result in substandard heating or cooling and premature wear. A capacity of equal or slightly greater capacity for the room is advised. Too much will waste energy and increase power usage as the unit will tend to over compensate to the small space. Stinson Air’s experienced staff can recommend the correct unit for your purpose.
