Planning and Executing Construction and Contracting Projects: Tips for Consumers

Welcome to my blog. My name is Deborah. About 15 years ago, I bought an old home. We worked with several contractors to rehabilitate it, but ultimately, the foundation simply wasn't stable enough, and we had to tear it down. After that, we worked with a construction crew to build a home from the ground up. The experience was exciting and challenging, and I learned a lot through that process. I want to share construction and contracting facts and information with others so I decided to start this blog. I hope that you like the results, and I thank you for reading. Enjoy!

Why Go for Split System Air Conditioning?

by Samantha Russell

Comfort is a standard feature of any good home. That is why air conditioning service is now being viewed as a necessity rather than a luxury for modern homeowners. But many homeowners often find themselves at crossroads when it comes to choosing a suitable air conditioning system for their homes because they do not understand the various benefits associated with each type of air conditioner.

If you are thinking of installing a split system air conditioner in your home, you should know about its upsides. Here are just a few of the numerous advantages of split system air conditioning:

Quick and easy to install

The benefits of a split system air conditioner can be realised as early as during its installation. You don't need to perform major renovation work to install a split system air conditioner in your home because the system is ductless.

The only difficult work you will need to do is to drill a hole in the external wall to connect the indoor and outdoor units of your split-type air conditioner with electrical wires and pipes. This saves on both installation time and costs. 


Not only are their installation costs much lower, but split system air conditioners also allow you to decrease energy bills by cooling spaces only when necessary. This can be achieved by connecting a thermostat to your split system air conditioner and setting it to cool rooms only when you need it to.

This way, you will enjoy a significant reduction in your monthly electricity costs, especially during hot summer months when you need to keep your air conditioning running most of the time.

Quieter performance

Another big advantage that you will realise by installing a split system air conditioner is reduced noise levels. Unlike the case with window-type air conditioners where all components are housed in a single box, the condenser unit of a split system air conditioner, which normally makes the most noise, is placed outside of the house being cooled. This explains why split-type air conditioners maintain a soft, steady hum whereas window types are notorious for producing loud noises.

Even though it is rather tempting to install a split system air conditioner as a do-it-yourselfer, you should ask a professional HVAC installer to do the job for you. The long term benefits that you can reap from a professionally done installation job can by far outweigh the total costs of installing and operating the split-type air conditioner.
