How split systems works
Split Systems Air Conditioning consists of two parts:
- The condenser is located on the outside of the house;
- The fan coil is fixed inside the room.
The split systems heat pump operates in two modes and two directions. The fan coil draws warm air from the room and returns the cold to cool the air in the room. For heating, a reverse cycle must be started.
Split systems installation can be thought out for one room or adjoining rooms. One outdoor unit can be connected to nine indoor units. The power of one outdoor unit is enough to regulate and set a specific temperature in each of the nine rooms.
- Inverter technology allows you to maintain a stable temperature in the room throughout the year with changing seasons. Users control the speed of the compressor, thereby reducing energy costs.
- Daikin split systems are cheaper than ducted air conditioning. Therefore, for small apartments, offices, or rooms, this is the ideal solution. Also, the price varies depending on the number of indoor units.
- One unit controls the temperature in one room. Therefore, in different places in the same apartment or house, you can maintain a different microclimate for the comfort of all family members.
- Daikin split systems have built-in filters to improve indoor air quality. This feature is necessary for homes where there are children, the elderly, residents with asthma or allergies. Daikin split systems help control not only temperature but also air humidity.
Daikin split systems can be installed with multiple indoor units in different rooms. It allows not only to set different temperature conditions, but also to choose different functionality (the presence of air filters, humidity control, power).
