Fuel Efficient Noiseless Air Split Conditioners

Jul 11, 2008
To understand air split conditioners it is necessary to first understand the basics of air-conditioning and why we require it. When temperatures soar it becomes necessary to tamper with the excesses of Nature and tame the climate. This work is done by conditioning the air around the house or room.

Air conditioners come in many sizes having different cooling capacities. The price accordingly varies. Apart from the common window air conditioner there are also air split conditioners but the basic principles of operation are generally the same.

The air split conditioner is a refrigerator sans the insulation box. The evaporation mechanism of refrigerant (Freon) is used for the cooling purpose. Freon is a term that is `used for any of various nonflammable fluorocarbons uses as refrigerants and as propellants for aerosols.`

The cool Freon gas is compressed by the compressor and it becomes hot. The heated gas passes through a number of coils and condenses to become liquid. This liquid now goes through a valve that can expand and contract. It evaporates and becomes cold Freon gas under low pressure. This cold gas passes again through another set of coils that allows for the gas to absorb the heat. In the process the air inside the building is cooled. Lightweight oil is mixed with Freon gas to lubricate the compressor.

The air split conditioner splits the heated side from the cold side. The expansive valve and cold coils are in the cold side. These are kept in a furnace or any other type of cold handler. This air handler allows air to be blown through the coils and channels the air through the building via ducts. The hot side is referred to as the condensing unit and is kept outside the building. The unit looks like a long cylinder. There is a fan inside the coil to propel the air along the coil. In this task a compressor that is resistant to weather and some control mechanisms are also used.

This new technology of air split conditioner has developed lately and is popular because it brings down the cost as well as the noise. However noise outside the building gets increased. The name is given because the hot and cold sides have been split apart enabling for larger capacity. Bigger sized coils and compressors can now be accommodated. Apart from this there is no real difference between an ordinary air conditioner and an air split conditioner. This system is not suitable for big buildings and multi storied units. Problems arise.

The new models of air split conditioner having built-in heater allows for controlling the room climate in an area below 400 square in a jiffy. It comes with a refrigerant and comprises the line-set that links the indoor and outdoor parts. This makes for easy installation. An added facility is the remote control having full functions and an air filter screen that is washable. The size is compact, there is little or no noise and it is fuel efficient. The main compressor is placed outdoors and thus the only indoor part is mounted on the wall. This distributes the cool air.

The energy consumption of air split conditioners is less than portable air conditioners and is just right for small areas. It will not draw upon extra electricity. The calculated cooling power consumption is 770 watts and heating power consumption is 730 watts. The total net weight is 11l lbs and gross weight 123 lbs. The manufacturer backs the purchase with a year`s warrantee. It can be installed straight out of the box without hassle.
