Childproofing Your Home And Garden

When my first child had an accident at home, I realised we hadn't childproofed the house as well as we could have. Thankfully, they were fine, but I learned my lesson and began a thorough inspection of my home and garden. I got to work addressing the various hazards we had overlooked, and I started this blog to help other parents think objectively about the hazards in their own homes. I post about a variety of topics, such as pool safety, choosing a safe garden fence, storing medication and cleaning products, window and door locks and kitchen safety for kids. I hope you find my blog useful and informative.

What To Know About Split System Air Condition Systems

Ana Gonzales

Aside from the regular air conditioning systems, with all the ducting, there are a few more modern ways to cool down a property. One of the popular methods among homeowners is the split system air conditioning unit. As a homeowner who would like to install some kind of air conditioning system, you may be wondering if a split system is suitable for you and what benefits it has. 

Where It Is Effective

Split system air conditioning systems are small and fairly discreet. One main unit is attached to the wall in a property and another is attached outside of the property. These work together to create warm and cool air. The split system can cool up to four rooms or areas at a time. This system is effective for:

  • Offices and small businesses – four offices or rooms can be cooled at the same time
  • Outside units – storage areas and similar outside buildings can cool areas with the split system
  • Small residential family properties can also use this system

Some Benefits

The split system is ideal for people who have properties that cannot support ducting.  Some modern and fairly large buildings cannot be adapted to take the ducting, so the split system –which has no ducting at all – is the perfect alternative. The split system is also fairly easy to install. Just two main units need to be attached to the inside and outside of the building, and can be done quickly and easily. Even people with only a little DIY experience should be able to install the units of a split system air conditioning unit. Lastly, the efficiency of the unit is, generally speaking, better than the efficiency of a traditional air conditioning system. This is due to the ducting, as a decent amount of energy is lost here in traditional systems. With no ducting in the split system, efficiency can be increased.


For most people, the one big drawback to the split system is the expense. To fully install an operational split system set up can cost more than the average family can afford. However, some canny homeowners like to look at split systems as an investment and make the purchase anyway. The money saved, in the long run thanks to increased efficiency, is worth the investment to them.

Use this information to help you decide if a split system air conditioning unit would work for you if, for example, you are not able to use ducting and a traditional air conditioning system. For more information, contact a professional such as ACSIS Airconditioning Warehouse.
