Get Summer Ready And Save Money With A New Split System AirCon

Save Money With A Split System AirCon

An energy-efficient air conditioner offers a number of benefits, a luxury that not long ago was simply unaffordable to many of us.

In this day and age, a new aircon installation is within the reach of most Brisbane homeowners as trusted and good quality aircons have become more affordable to buy and more economical to run. What this means is that most new homes in Brisbane now enjoy the luxury of a modern energy-efficient and environmentally-friendly split system aircon to cool their homes during those long hot Brisbane summers.

However, many established homeowners are hesitant to invest in a brand new and energy-efficient air conditioner because they own an old, but working aircon. If you fall into this category you might like to consider the economic, environmental and health benefits that a newer aircon can provide and how much aircon technology has advanced since the installation of your current one.

A number of reasons to consider investing in a new and energy-efficient air conditioner include:

  • Energy Savings
  • Environment-friendly
  • Cleaner Air
  • Updated modern features
  • Quiet Operations
  • Longer Lifespan

If you’re thinking of getting a new aircon installed for the Brisbane summer ahead but are concerned about your electricity bills – and your carbon footprint – you should consider a split system aircon installation.

A split system aircon is a cooling solution designed for specific areas in your home or office building. Which makes it a popular choice among many Brisbane homes and offices for the efficient cooling system it delivers.

The split system aircon helps you cool down only the specific areas you want, and gives you control on how long you want it to run. Perhaps you only want cooling for the bedroom or the nursery or to cool the living room so that you can relax in the midst of the sweltering Brisbane summer heat.

Advantages of a split system aircon installation include:

  • Flexibility: When you want to cool individual rooms but not the whole house or building, installing a split system aircon is the best solution. You can run multiple air conditioners on one compressor, and you get to control the temperature for each room. It also allows you to cool as few or as many rooms as you like.
  • Easy to install: A split system aircon only needs a small hole for the pipe that links the internal unit to the external unit. Window aircons need an opening bigger than the unit itself and ducted air conditioning requires more labour to install the system.
  • Maximum comfort: A split system aircon is the perfect aircon to use in bedrooms because it functions quietly, thanks to the installation of the noisy parts in the external unit located outside. So you can’t hear any noise coming out of the unit.
  • Cost saver: The upfront cost for split system air conditioner installation is cheaper when you compare it to ducted air conditioner systems. A split system aircon also blows air directly into the room so no energy is lost. It also cools a room faster, and since you get full control of the temperature, you can decide when you stop the cooling process or when to continue.
  • Lower carbon footprint: Since more businesses and homes prefer split aircons, it generally gets more time in research and development. Split systems today use an environmentally friendly refrigerant, thus lowering your carbon footprint.


When you want consistent and maximum comfort using an energy-efficient system, split system aircons are one of your best choices.



Choosing to have an air conditioner installed in your home can be a good investment. It’s one that you, therefore, need to ensure you get value for your money. Working with incompetent contractors and salespeople will end up costing you more than you bargained for.

There are loads of stores that you can walk into and walk out again with a brand new aircon unit. You could actually walk into those same stores on the same day and the same salesperson could also sell you a television, computer, telephone and a camera if they were good enough and if you were on the market for any of those products. The problem is, can you really expect a salesperson to be an expert on everything they sell as well as an expert on the right aircon system for your home?

Your home needs are also different from your neighbours, so don’t just go off what others recommend. What works for them might not necessarily work for you.

A team of aircon professionals can pay you an onsite visit and assess your needs after which they can advise on the best options available in the market and then carry out the installation also. Professional aircon installation is about knowledge, experience and understanding which product will be the most efficient and economical for your environment and circumstances.

There are several factors to consider when choosing to install an air conditioner system. These include:

  • The size of the air conditioner
  • Type of system you want
  • Cost, durability, and efficiency
  • The control level that your air condition allows you
  • Installation and maintenance
  • Location
  • Warranty



Split system air conditioners are the most efficient, durable and reliable aircons on the market. Therefore what’s important is getting the most out of your split system unit; getting the right system for your home and lifestyle; and making sure it lasts as long as your unit is capable of lasting.

  • If your system is too large, your system will cycle on and off and that will interfere with the longevity of your system.
  • If the system is too small, it will have to work that much harder to cool your home. That means using more energy regardless of what the rating suggests and risking component failure.


You can use the below as a very basic guide for the size of the unit your selected space will require in a Brisbane home.

  • 2.0 kW (Approx. 14m2)
  • 2.5 kW (Approx. 20m2)
  • 3.5 kW (Approx. 26m2)
  • 4.4 kW (Approx. 32m2)
  • 5.0 kW (Approx. 40m2)
  • 6.0 kW (Approx. 48m2)
  • 7.1 kW (Approx. 55m2)
  • 8.0 kW (Approx. 61m2)
  • 9.2 kW (Approx. 69m2)


If you are considering split system air conditioning, it is best to speak with a professional aircon installer with plenty of Brisbane industry experience. They will be able to help you choose a system that is best suited to the specific requirements of your property and budget. There are other important factors to consider such as ceiling height and windows.
