The most ideal approach to pick the right system for your home or office is to completely research your options. For some buildings, ducted systems will be the most efficient option, for others, evaporative cooling or panel heaters will be better suited.

Another well-known option is installation of split system air conditioning, which is a utmost adept and cost-effective way to heat and cool your property. Below, we’ll look at how a split system works and weigh up some of the advantages to see whether split system installation is the best solution for your home or office.

How a split system works

A split system, as its name suggests, is split into two or more operating segments. Usually, it reside of two operating components: the fan and evaporator, which is wall-mounted inside the building, and a compressor unit, which is placed outside the building either on the ground or hung on the wall.

In short, a split system air conditioner works by extracting hot air and humidity from the air inside the building and expelling them through the compressor into the air outside the building.

Refrigerants inside the compressor then cool air from outside and pass them into the indoor unit though copper pipes, where the fan blows the chilled air around the room.

When used for heating, the system works inversely: it extracts cold air and blows warm air around the room.

Advantages of a split system

To a great extent because of its simple design, there are many reasons why split system installation is a proficient heating and cooling choice. Some advantages incorporate:

  • Fast and simple to operate. Split systems heat or cool spaces very rapidly and are simple to control via a remote control
  • Deliver warm or cool air only in the spaces where it’s required and when it’s required. No need to waste money heating unused spaces.
  • Economical to install. Indoor and outdoor units are connected by a couple of small pipes and electrical cables, so very limited alternation to your home is needed to install fittings. No ductwork means less labour costs, faster and more inexpensive installation.
  • Because they are powered by electricity, split systems can be subsidised by solar power, making them an economical solution for homes powered with the help of solar panels.
  • The indoor components of split system air conditioners contain filters which can easily be removed and cleaned by the owner – no call-outs are essential to clean the indoor component.
  • Most split systems have heating and cooling competence as standard, so you can use one system year-round.
  • Air purification. Many models will purify the air, so that dust and allergens are not circulated through the building.

Kyle was awesome. He was able to give us great advice on the type of systems that would work in our different spaces and the benefits and limitations that we could expect from them. We ended up getting an 8 zoned ducted system that Kyle was able to get installed in one day. Thanks Kyle!

Last week we had a Daikan split system installed by Kyle from Bennett Air Con, and it went very smoothly. Very professional, and easy to deal with. Workmanship was high quality. Very competitive on prices too.

Kyle was amazing throughout my ordeal with my strata trying to get my aircon certified and installed. Answered all calls, two in home visits and numerous quote adjustments. Couldn’t recommend him highly enough.

Seriously could not be happier. From the first enquiry all the way throughout our install, Kyle and the team were top notch. Even when it came to quoting Bennett Air gave us the aircon we needed. They didn't try to upsell us a system like several competitors tried to do.

Kyle and Charlie did an excellent job on my ducted system a week ago. The job was well planed and carried out very smoothly. Minimum disrupt to the ceiling and it looks great! System tested with professionalism. Definitely recommend to anyone who need air-conditioning installed or serviced! Well done!

Was recommended through my in laws. Kyle was prompt with communication and discussed his availability (Kyle was much more proactive than the manufacturer company whom I had previously tried to arrange works with). We had service completed followed by replacement of ducted system. Kyle discussed options and was not pushy towards one option or another. We chose to undergo full replacement - Kyle arranged everything and even cleaned up after works completed. Unfortunately as things go my system had an initial fault, once alerted Kyle was prompt to come and fix and assured me he would assist warranty repairs directly with manufacturer if required (luckily this did not need to occur).
Kyle has provided us with exceptional service and would not hesitate recommending him to others.

I thought I could survive summer without A/C in my new unit, I was wrong; this Brit cannot handle anything over 21C! I called Kyle to look at installing a multi-split system for me, and although he was on holiday he text me straight back and arrange a day/time to visit and quote the Monday after he returned. At all stages of the quoting and installation I found Kyle extremely professional, and punctual. The installation even took less time than he originally estimated, just in time for a very hot and humid 31C day, saved! Before leaving, Kyle took me through the operation of the system, including recommended settings for cold and hot and made sure I was happy with everything. The install looks great, very clean and tidy. The units are high quality and quiet, you can barely hear the external compressor when walking past it. Overall, I couldn't be happier with the service and final product, highly recommend Kyle and his team if you have any A/C needs.
