The Basics of a Split Air Conditioner

Split air conditioner is another way of referring to the standard central A/C system. It separates it from a packaged central air unit, a type of central air unit used primarily for businesses, where all the components are housed in a single outdoor cabinet.

The split air conditioner instead divides the A/C into two units: an indoor air handler with an attached evaporator coil (kind of like the radiator on your car), and an outdoor condenser. The condenser contains the compressor and the condenser coil where heat is released to the outside. The indoor evaporator coil handles absorbing heat to cool the air and pumps the heat out of your house via the refrigerant piping. The air handler then sends the cooled air through the ductwork to the rooms in the house.

Central Air Conditioning Installation and Replacement

As you can probably tell from the above description, a split air conditioner is a large, complex device. Installing a new one isn’t a job for amateurs or as a "do–it–yourself" project. Not only does an installation or replacement of a central A/C system require immense amount of labor, it also requires people skilled in sizing HVAC units, certified to handle refrigerant, and those who have the specialized tools.

Sizing is one of the essential tasks: it’s how the installers know the power level of air conditioner to put into a house. An overpowered system is just as bad as an underpowered one! Allow our trained and certified HVAC professionals to have your installation or replacement done fast and correctly. Choosing the right contactor is more important than the brand of equipment you choose. Studies have shown that 90% of A/C installations have some sort of energy wasting deficiency due to poor and improper installation. 75% of all system aren’t charged properly, 60% are oversized, most don’t have the proper air flow and at this altitude air is even more important. These things can make high–efficiency A/C units run below standard levels of efficiency.
