Why is an inverter unit different.
The difference between the non inverter and the inverter, is that the non inverter is really a fixed speed unit while the inverter unit has a variable speed. A sensor in the inverter unit adjusts the power required on a continuous basis, and will lead to savings of electricity of about 40%. It is also a quieter running unit.
Do you have a service plan?
Yes, we do have a service plans and but you will need to contact us for a quote. Depending on the use of the unit – e.g. domestic or industrial – units should be serviced at least once a year to maintain the manufacturers warranty.
What is covered by the warranty?
Normally the warranty will cover all parts, providing that the unit has been operating according to the manufactures instruction manual. You will not pay for labour in the warranty period. All manufacturers will require proof that the unit has been serviced regularly according to their schedules. At the Aircon Studio, we keep a record of the date of installation and if the service has been carried out in the time period required.
How do air-conditioners work?
The air-conditioner is designed to extract the warm air from the room and replace it with cool air. Or alterantivly to do the reverse if you are heating. Outdoor you have a compressor, condenser coil, expansion joint and vent fan all contained in the outer box. (outdoor unit) The evaporator coils, filter, blower and individual unit boxes are on the inside of the house that you see on the wall. (indoor unit) There is also a thermostat of some type to control the temprature in the space. This is a typical split unit installtion.
What is the difference between split and multi-split?
A split unit is one that has two parts. The outside condenser/compressor that supplies the indoor unit with cool or warm air, and the indoor unit that distributes the air with a blower, and controls the temperature with a thermostat. It will also have an air filter for small particles of dust.
A multi-split normally will only have one or two outside condensers/compressor and may have more than one or more indoor units. It is possible to have one outdoor unit and multiple indoor units that are able to be controlled individually for each location. This will depend on the power of the outdoor condenser/compressor.
For example if you had a 27 000 Btu/h unit outside, you will be able to have 3 x 9 000 Btu/h units indoor, all operating independently, as the total of the indoor units do not exceed 27,000 Btu/h
