Home air conditioning is no longer a luxury available only to the richest! It’s a solution which anyone can afford, and it’s a big advantage. Air conditioning provides comfort not only on hot days. It allows you to freely control the temperature in your home, apartment, office, or small retail outlet, replacing or supplementing the heating system. However, the advantages of an air-conditioning system do not stop there, because its installation proves to be a great way to take care of your health, and that of all users. Modern air conditioners eliminate diseases caused by bacteria and fungi in the air.

In addition, the comfort of staying in an air-conditioned room is further increased by the facility to lower the humidity level in the air, and clean the air. This is particularly useful in winter, when the temperature outside does not encourage you to open windows. If you want to fully enjoy the comfort of the air, it is worth choosing your air conditioner carefully, by finding the one suitable for your apartment, house, office, small shop, or other small retail outlet. You can choose between two primary solutions – a portable air conditioner and a split-type air conditioner. The first model is lower priced, and easier to install, but the daily operation of a mobile air conditioner can have its limitations. In this situation, it is worth considering split air conditioning, which provides a high level of air comfort.

The split-type air conditioner

Split-type air conditioning is quiet, efficient, and has low power consumption. It is also the best solution for those who cherish aesthetic values. The variety of the available models means that you can easily find an air conditioner to suit virtually any interior. What is worth knowing about this solution? How do you choose the right air conditioner of this type?

How does it work?

Split-type air conditioners are comprised of two units – an outdoor module, which is mounted on the façade of a building, and an indoor element installed in the air-conditioned room.

The advantage afforded by this solution is that all noise-generating components are installed in the outdoor unit. Indoor units contain only silent devices, which significantly improves the comfort of those present in the room.

Types of unit

Split-type air conditioners can be easily adapted to the interior design in various rooms. See below for a selection of units sold by KAISAI.

  • Wall-mounted – as the name itself suggests, they are fixed to walls. These units feature discreet and minimalistic designs, and will work well both in modern interiors and in apartments decorated with respect for the traditions of interior design. Their advantage is a relatively simple assembly, which does not require modifying the interior in any way.
  • Cassette – this is a solution for owners of apartments and offices with suspended ceilings. The advantage they give is virtually zero interference with the room’s interior design, with the only visible element being a grille with a decorative casing placed between the ceiling tiles.
  • Convertible (or general purpose) – their design allows them to be fixed to the ceiling, on the floor, or in one of two positions, in the case of the general-purpose units.
  • Duct – these indoor units are concealed in suspended ceilings, and the user will only see the inlet and outlet grilles.

 In terms of performance and functionality, both the above solutions are fairly similar. The differences lie in their aesthetics and assembly technology, and these are issues which should determine your choice of the type of indoor unit. It is more common for houses and apartments to choose wall-mounted air conditioners. However, if you are looking for an efficient system for your office, shop, service outlet, or warehouse, then choosing from cassette, general-purpose, or duct air-conditioning systems would be a better solution.
