Split Wall Air Conditioning Units

Split Wall Air Con

With our ever-changing climate, more and more people are beginning to make the investment into air conditioning. This is increasing in both commercial properties and personal residences. When researching air conditioning systems, it can be a challenge to decide which one would most suit your needs. There are several different types, and all perform their best in specific environments. One of the most popular options for air conditioning is the split system.

Benefits of Split System Air Conditioning

Customisable temperatures

The temperature can be set to whatever and whenever you want via remote control.

Energy efficiency

The system only uses the energy needed to keep the air at the preferred temperature before automatically shutting off, which minimises power consumption and wasted energy.

Cost effective

The initial cost of an air conditioning system may seem daunting, but it very quickly pays for itself by decreasing heating/cooling bills.

Quick installation

A split system is one of the more straightforward systems to install, as opposed to something more invasive like ducted air conditioning. Always make sure you hire a qualified engineer to install your system.


There is a vast range of styles, sizes, shapes, and colours of indoor split system units, so you can choose the unit that will be least eye-catching in the room. They are smaller than other air conditioning units and easier to blend in with your existing décor.


The noisiest parts of the system are placed outside and the interior unit is as quiet as is possible. As technology develops, quieter and quieter units are being produced.

Split Wall AC Installation

As with any air conditioning system, you must have qualified engineers to install the system to make sure it is done correctly, legally, and safely.

When installing a split system, you decide where you would like your interior unit to be situated – if you’re unsure where the optimum positioning is, engineers can advise on this. As a general rule, the units shouldn’t be in direct sunlight, and must always be mounted on a wall that can take its weight. There should also be a 15cm open space around the whole unit.

A mounting plate will be placed on the area specified, and a hole created above that to accommodate all of the system’s piping and wiring. After checking the unit’s connections are checked, these pipes and wires will be connected to your outdoor unit. The interior unit also requires a drainage pipe, which is connected to the unit before finally connecting the whole thing to the mounting plate.

The external component of the system must be away from direct heat and lots of foot traffic. There should be at least a 30cm gap around the whole unit. The ground it sits on must be level, and the unit should sit slightly above ground level to avoid flooding – paving slabs are often placed beneath the condenser for this purpose. Once the unit is situated, the wiring and piping fed out from the internal unit are all connected. Air is bled from the outdoor unit to close the circuit and finally, the pipe work is secured and any remaining holes in the wall are sealed.
