Split system or air conditioner

Cooling devices create conditions for a comfortable stay in the room. The choice of climate control equipment depends on the size of the house, the number of people who are constantly present in the room, and the number of windows and doorways.


How does a split system differ from a conventional air conditioner? To ensure that temperature control is not a hassle, it is important to understand what the difference is before buying.


What is a split system?


Split systems are used to heat, cool, and control the humidity level in a room. Devices such as the CH-S12XN7 clean the space from the smallest dust particles, which is extremely important if there are people in the house who suffer from allergies.


The main difference between a split system and an air conditioner is that it is divided into two different remote components. The outdoor section is a compressor that initiates the cooling process, while the indoor component consists of an evaporator and a fan. The two sections are connected by a set of electrical wires and tubes, also called lines, used to transport air between the two sections.


For example, a CH-S09FTXDG with indoor and outdoor units. The outdoor unit is installed on the facade and the indoor unit is installed in the room. They contain the following parts:


Indoor unit:

– compressor

– condenser coils

– capillary tube


Outdoor unit:

– cooling coil

– fan

– filter for air purification


The outdoor unit is connected to the indoor unit through a network of special insulated tubes. The outdoor unit was named because it is installed outdoors, while the indoor unit is mounted on the wall in any part of the room.


The volume of the device is minimal due to the design of the device. The parts of the air conditioner that generate the most noise (compressor and fan) are located outside the home.


A big advantage of split air conditioning systems is the ability to expand the system with additional outlets for other rooms. Moreover, each has its own thermostat, which allows you to individually turn on or off a specific indoor blog as needed.


With additional outlets, the only additional installation required is the indoor unit itself and the copper tube connecting the external compressor to it.


There is a misconception that an air conditioner brings fresh air into the house, but this is not the case. The device is designed to take air from the room, cool it, and return it back. The equipment does not enrich the room with oxygen and takes air from the street. This means that ventilation and airing remain essential for living in a house.


To understand how the air conditioning system works, you need to understand what functions the parts of the device perform.


The cycle of the split system:


  1. The liquid refrigerant enters the evaporator under pressure.
  2. Under the influence of hot air, the process of evaporation and heat absorption occurs.
  3. The pressure rises in the compressor, and the refrigerant enters the unit in a gaseous state and goes out.
  4. In the condenser, the refrigerant changes back to a liquid state and is cooled by the air jet supplied by the fan.


The horizontal louvers on the indoor unit provide air distribution.


A split system like the CH-S09XP7 has an attractive, minimalist design that perfectly harmonizes with the interior of any apartment. Also, devices of this type effectively cool or heat a room in a short time.


Types of split systems


Split system and air conditioner: what is the difference, and what are the types of cooling devices? Compact split air conditioners are divided into the following types according to the way they are placed:


Floor-to-ceiling – the airflow is directed upward or rolls along the ceiling and descends. The main advantage of such an air conditioner as SU-18GR/S-18GR is that the airflow is not directed at a person and minimizes the possibility of getting sick.


Wall-mounted – are the most common. They are installed on any part of the wall and are suitable for small rooms.


Column – suitable only for large rooms due to their size and highest power output. They are installed on the floor in hotel lobbies, restaurant halls, and hypermarkets.


Cassette – work on the principle of equal air distribution in 4 directions. Ideal for huge rooms with suspended ceilings. The air conditioner is mounted in the ceiling and does not affect the design of the room, as only its grill is visually visible.


Ducted – designed to work in several rooms at once. As a rule, they are more powerful than other split air conditioners. This type of cooling device ensures clean and fresh air in country houses, large offices, and conference rooms.


The presented equipment is selected according to the type of room. In apartments and residential buildings, split systems that are placed on the walls, such as the CH-S07GKP8 model, will be appropriate. In rooms with a large distance between the floor and the ceiling, the use of cassette systems will be an excellent solution. Ducted units are suitable for large spaces with suspended ceilings.


The choice of a split system is influenced by the amount of energy consumed by the device for cooling the room, its efficiency, and its power. Climate control devices are effective in maintaining the desired temperature when all of the above parameters are taken into account.


Also, split systems are divided into categories based on regulation:


inverter – they work constantly, but at different speeds, and maintain the desired temperature in the room.

non-inverter – heat or cool the air to the desired temperature and turn it off. They turn on independently when the room temperature changes again.


Inverter split systems, such as CH-S12FTXN-NG, are especially popular because they save energy much better.
