What’s a Split System? Quite simply, a Split System Heat Pump is designed for individual areas in your home. For instance, you may only want to air condition the baby’s room, or maybe the main living area where you do most of your entertaining. Or perhaps your own bedroom, for those cold nights. With a Split System, the compressor is installed outside your house and the unit that passes air into the house is either discreetly wall mounted or a compact floor-standing unit.
What are the advantages of a Split System?
There are two main benefits.
The first is that a Split System is more economical than other types of heat pump systems, as you’re only buying and installing one unit at a time and using less energy than some other systems.
