Types of Home Air Conditioning Systems & Units
Several types of residential air conditioning systems are available to suit homes of all sizes.
We supply the following types of system:
Portable units are self-contained systems which can be easily moved from room to room. This type of system is suitable as a temporary solution but they do have some downsides which make them unsuitable for some applications.
- Easy installation (no professional installer required)
- Cost-effective cooling method
- Can be easily moved from room to room
- Not as efficient as a plumbed-in system
- Can be noisy so not suitable for bedrooms
- Requires ventilation, usually an open window
- Can only be used to cool one room at a time

Split systems consist of two components: an internal cassette and an external condenser. This type of system is easy to install and cost-effective to run. But as with portable solutions, there are some downsides to the system. We typically recommend this type of solution if cooling is only required for a single room such as a bedroom.
- More powerful than a portable solution
- Low running costs
- Easy installation
- Quiet operation
- Can only be used to cool a single room
- Not cost-effective if multi-room cooling is required
- Difficult to scale

Multi-split systems are similar to single split systems but more than one cassette can be connected to the external condenser. This allows for multiple rooms to be cooled while reducing running costs. This type of system can be scaled to cool buildings of almost any size and their modular nature makes them suitable for home use.
- Provides comprehensive multi-room cooling
- Low running costs
- Quiet operation
- Can be combined with a heat exchanger to provide heating as well
- Individual room temperature can be set
- Higher upfront costs
- Internal cassettes can be unsightly
- Can only operate in a single-mode, cooling or heating
- Requires space for the outside condensers

Ducted systems are the most integrated type of home air conditioning. This system is regarded as the most desirable because the components are hidden from view. The downside is that ducted systems are extremely difficult to retrofit into existing buildings due to the space required for ducting.
- Almost silent operation
- The most aesthetically pleasing choice, ducts are hidden and outlets disguised with grilles
- Extremely efficient
- Low running costs
- Expensive to install
- Requires space for ducting
- Difficult to retrofit, best fitted as part of new build

Types of Home Air Conditioning Units
Split and multi-split air conditioning systems require an internal unit (cassette) which is connected to the external condenser. In commercial systems, these units are usually installed into a suspended ceiling. But this is not possible for residential systems because few homes have suspended ceiling tiles.
For this reason, many air conditioning unit options are available for residential systems which make installation more practical.
Floor mounted: Floor mounted units sit low down on the wall in a similar position to traditional radiators. This allows pipework to be easily hidden under the floorboards. While the unit itself can be disguised behind a grille or cover. For this reason, floor mounted units are one of the most popular options for cooling conservatories.
Wall-mounted: Wall-mounted units sit high on the wall close to the ceiling. This makes them very efficient, but the downside is they are difficult to disguise. One good way of making them less obvious is to hide them inside a cupboard or wardrobe. This makes them an ideal solution for bedrooms and kitchens.
Ceiling mounted: Ceiling mounted units are installed into the void between the floor joists. Special residential-style cassettes have been developed which are slimmer than commercial units allowing them to be fitted into most homes. This is the most expensive type of installation, however, and older homes may not have enough space between the floors.
Home Air Conditioning Repairs & Servicing
Much like a conventional central heating system, air conditioning systems require regular servicing if they are to keep operating efficiently. We provide a range of low-cost air conditioning service and maintenance plans to keep your system running efficiently and reliably.
During the inspection, the engineer will clean and check the condenser and evaporator coils, check the electrical connections, carry out a belt inspection, check refrigerant pressure, carry out a drain line inspection, and perform an emergency pan inspection. The annual inspection should take no more than an hour to complete.
All our maintenance is carried out by F-Gas certified engineers who are also manufacturer certified. This ensures your system is maintained in line with the manufacturer’s recommendations. It also helps to protect your system warranty which may be voided if a non-manufacturer certified engineer carries out work on your system. Details about our air conditioning servicing is available here.
