  • Low maintenance – meaning you’ll always have a heating or cooling solution
  • Extremely energy efficient, so you’ll save money on your energy bill

How does it work?

It is comprised of an outdoor compressor unit and one or more indoor head units.

Refrigerant pipes and electrical cabling are then used to connect the units together. The compressor refrigerates the gases providing you with heating and/or cooling at the indoor unit. This is distributed indoors through the use of a fan coil. The fan coil that is part of the indoor unit provides you with quiet heating and cooling.

Essentially there are 5 different types of systems:

  1. Wall Split (most popular)
  2. Floor Consoles
  3. Bulk-head units
  4. Cassette style
  5. Under Ceiling
