High wall air conditioner or better known as ‘Split Systems’, are the new way of heating or cooling a single room. Unlike the old room air conditioners that took up a window or a large hole in the wall, Split System air conditioners are usually mounted high on the wall taking up very little space. A rather smaller hole in the wall that allows pipe and electrical connection between the indoor and outdoor units.
Split system air conditioning is a cheap, yet effective way of heating and cooling small bedrooms up to large living areas when sized correctly by our trained consultant. As an excellent alternative to window air conditioning systems, high wall units are ideal for commercial property owners who are looking for a cost effective and unobtrusive way of cooling and heating their property.
Placed at a high level on the wall in your designated room, high wall air Conditioner units are designed to ensure an equal distribution of both hot and cold air to all parts of the room. As they are placed high up on the wall and not on windows, they are completely unobtrusive and the users may not even notice them.
This kind of air conditioner features an internal wall-mounted unit and an external component connected by pipes that contain the refrigerant. If you're trying to decide if this type of system is right for your home, consider the four following reasons why a high wall unit is a good option.
A split-system air conditioner helps you keep costs down. A split-system unit costs less to install than a ducted air conditioning system. What's more, you can save on running and maintenance costs throughout the year.
Ducted air conditioning systems help you manage the temperature throughout your home, but this isn't always necessary in every property. In some houses, you may only need to control the temperature in one room (like the lounge, master bedroom or baby's nursery), and, even then, you may only have problems on particularly hot or cold days. A split-system air conditioner works well in homes with isolated temperature control problems. For example, homes in Mombasa which experience high temperatures most days of the year may want to cool the bedrooms or lounges, in such instances high wall units are perfect for the job.
If you own a period or a heritage-listed property, a ducted air conditioning system is often not an option because the necessary installation work is too intrusive or complex. Even if you don't live in a protected property, installation work for a ducted system can still mean you would have to damage features of the home. You may not even have room for the internal unit you would normally need to install in the roof space. A split-system air conditioner is generally easier to install. You can easily attach the wall unit in any room in the house, and you then only need to connect the unit to an external component using electrical cables and small gas pipes. While you may still need to take care when installing the system, you can easily install (and remove) split-system units without damaging original features.
If you live in a rented property without air conditioning, it's sometimes difficult to get the landlord to agree to install a new system. As such, tenants often decide to install air conditioning at their own cost. While you wouldn't want to pay for an expensive ducted system, a split-system unit is cheaper to install when you know you plan to leave the system behind when you move out – especially if you're desperate to keep cool. Make sure you get the landlord's permission in writing to install the unit, or you may lose money from your security deposit. Of course, some landlords may eventually agree to pay some or all the money, and the low installation and running costs of a split-system unit are likely to make this conversation easier. Agree which system you will install with the landlord, too, as he or she may expect you to install a certain brand or type of unit.
Split-system air conditioners can help you keep your home cool (or warm) inexpensively and without major installation work. For more information and installation of the high wall AC give us a call.
