The Best Type Of Air Conditioner For Your Space

Choosing the right type can be difficult and involve asking a lot of questions. What size do I need? How loud will it be? How much will it cost to run? Will it reach every room in my house? These are just a few of the burning questions we always get asked, and that’s why we’re here to help you choose the best air conditioner for your space!

We all know split systems and ducted systems, but maybe your apartment is best suited for a portable air conditioner, or your office space needs a wall-mounted air conditioner. Let’s look at the types of air conditioners you can choose from.

Types of Air Conditioners


Split System Air Conditioner

The main benefit of split system air conditioners is that they don’t require any ductwork to function; therefore there is no need for a major air conditioning installation. A split system is one of the more popular types of air conditioners, and is the ideal option if you are wanting to cool down or heat up at least one large bedroom space. A portable air conditioner would not be suitable for this environment. Split systems come in two parts; a fan and a condenser, which are located outside of your property meaning you, won’t hear any loud noises. For a quiet operating air conditioner, a split-system is the perfect choice for your home.

Ducted System Air Conditioner

Ducted Systems are definitely the most minimalistic in appearance. The air conditioning unit is completely hidden and only the vents can be seen. It will then cool down or heat up multiple rooms at once. This system would be a great choice for an office space as it cannot be seen and will regulate an even temperature across multiple spaces. Even though ducted systems are more expensive, they will reach your entire property rather than one or two rooms. There are also zone-ducted air conditioners, which allows you to change the temperature in different rooms.

Multi-Split System Air Conditioner

Multi-systems are great for properties with multiple rooms. They allow you to cool down or heat up multiple rooms at once, or just one room at a time. Multi-systems come with one outdoor unit yet can operate up to 6 indoor air conditioners. The systems are highly efficient as they operate just one system. Multi-systems are flexible to suit all residential and commercial spaces. You have control when using this type of air conditioner, it is the perfect option for your space.

Wall-Mounted Air Conditioner

Wall-mounted air conditioners are one of the more common air conditioning systems. They are affordable and efficient to install. Wall-mounted air conditioners are installed high up on your wall and are best suited for smaller rooms such as bedrooms, a small apartment or small office spaces. Larger rooms will need multiple wall-mounted air conditioners to sufficiently cool down or heat up your space. Powerful wall-mounted systems are typically used for industrial locations, however, they are very noisy and are not ideal for office spaces.

Portable Air Conditioner

Portable air conditioners require no permanent installation; all they need is a wall electrician outlet. Portable air conditioners, just like their name they’re portable. You can move your air conditioner anywhere best suited for your needs. Portable air conditioners dehumidify your air making it the perfect option for those with allergies. They may be the cheapest option however; they are not the most effective.

What’s The Best Air Conditioner For Your Space

If you’re after an air conditioning solution for your large office space, we recommend either a ducted system or a multi-split system as these two options will regulate the temperature of your entire workspace. For a residential air conditioning solution, it will depend on whether you want to cool down or heat up one room or your entire home. There are a range of air conditioning options you can choose from, a split system, and multi-system is ideal for cooling down or heating up at least one large bedroom space. A ducted system is perfect when multiple people in your home prefer different temperatures. For a cheaper option, wall-mounted air conditioners will be sufficient. For small areas such as your desk area or in your bedroom, the portable air conditioner is the best choice.
