Are split systems expensive to run?
Split system air conditioners may be the most cost effective heating and cooling systems. In accordance with Canstar, a split system can cost anywhere from $196-$817 annually to run. They work best with smaller properties, and are often cheaper to run for smaller homes compared to ducted systems. Split system installation is quite straightforward and normally cheaper than other heating and cooling system installation.
What size split system do I need?
To consider your choices, there are a few factors you must consider:
- How big and high is your room? The bigger the room, the more energy is required to cool it.
- What is the climate like? This will affect how powerful your split system needs to be.
- Is your home insulated? This affects how quickly and efficiently it will take to heat your home.
- What orientation is your room facing? A southern-facing window will be much cooler in the summer, compared to a north-facing window, thus requiring a less powerful cooler.
All these factors can impact your home, but rest assured that Jacob Refrigeration can accurately assess your home conditions and provide you with a split system unit that is perfect for your home.
Do split systems need regassing?
This is very unlikely as your split system air conditioner is sealed. This would only occur if the air conditioner is faulty, not installed correctly, or your system is damaged. At Jacob Refrigeration, we provide guaranteed warranties and 35 years of experience under our belt so you can be assured that the split system air conditioner is properly installed and maintained.
How do you clean a split system air conditioner?
Always turn off your electricity when cleaning your split system air conditioner for safety purposes. Every few weeks, we recommend cleaning your dust filters. We also encourage you to dust off any debris and dust for both the exterior of your indoor and outdoor unit. However, we do not recommend touching the inside of your split system as it can get complicated and dangerous without proper technical training. As such, we highly recommend getting a technician to service your air conditioner at least once a year to ensure it is clean and working properly.
Do split systems use gas or electricity?
Split system air cons use electricity for best efficiency. This makes it much more affordable, as well as more environmentally friendly as well as it does not involve burning gas. Instead it generates its own heat through electricity, which makes it a much more efficient option.
Is it cheaper to run a ducted heating or a split system?
This depends on the conditions of your home or commercial building. Split systems are normally cheaper to install as ducts are not installed in the roof. Instead, split systems are installed in specific rooms, and as such ducted heating systems may have cheaper running costs for larger homes or commercial properties as you will require multiple split system air cons for complete coverage. However, smaller properties that have split system air cons installed tend to be cheaper than ducted heating systems.
