How split system air conditioning works

How Does A Split System work?

The Way Split Systems Work Is All In The Name the system is split into two parts, with a condenser unit installed outside and a fan coil unit installed inside.

For cooling, the fan coil takes in and removes warm air from inside a room, replacing it with cool air. On the other side, for heating, the heat pump runs in reverse to output heated air.

Split Systems are ideal for installation in single rooms and open plan spaces, while Multi-head Systems allow for up to 9 rooms to be regulated with a single outdoor unit.
