Split System Air Conditioning Melbourne

There’s a good reason that split systems are one of the most popular choices for air conditioning installation in Melbourne!

  • Lower up-front installation cost
  • Powerful, effective cooling
  • Perfect for situations where ducted cooling is unsuitable

While most air conditioning systems could be referred to as “split” – that is, they are made up of one indoor and one outdoor component – perhaps the best known type of split system is a wall-mounted air conditioning unit. This type of unit is a fantastic option for those looking for an efficient system that allows precise control across a number of different rooms in the house.

The benefits of split system air conditioning installation

Ducted air conditioning offers powerful cooling and brilliant coverage.

However, it isn’t always the best choice for your house – sometimes, ducted heating and cooling may be unnecessary in a smaller home or a property like an apartment, office, or townhouse.

Split system air conditioners come with a range of benefits that often make them the most cost-efficient, sustainable and comfortable air conditioning systems for both homes and businesses alike.

Reduced household energy expenditures

Typical centralised air conditioning systems have a problem with losing energy as a result of heat exchanges in the duct system.

Because split systems don’t contain much ductwork however, the potential for heat or energy loss is much lower. Split systems are perfect for stubborn hot rooms that might not receive adequate ventilation or airflow.

Combine that with highly-efficient technology like VRV/VRF, and you can drastically reduce your energy usage by choosing split system air conditioning.

Lower upfront cost

Always a determining factor at play, split system air conditioners are smaller and cheaper upfront. If you don’t have the need for powerful all-house cooling, split system air conditioning is the perfect alternative.

On top of the traditional split system, our team also designs and installs multi-split systems that link multiple indoor units to a single compressor, allowing you to cool multiple rooms with a single split system.

Easy installation

As ductwork isn’t necessary for split systems, we’re able to complete installation much faster – in most cases, we’ll only need to drill small holes in the walls to hold the wiring and tubes.

As such, they’re a cost-efficient, low-maintenance way for your family to enjoy a climate control solution. We strongly recommend choosing a qualified technician for system design and installation.

Advanced climate control

Although cooling is the primary purpose of split systems, they also provide optimal climate control. Some units come with additional cooling capabilities. This is perfect for year-round, cost-effective comfort in the household.

We’re talking about extras like VRV/VRF technology, WiFi control, advanced filtering… the list goes on and on!

Ducted split systems Melbourne

Wall-mounted systems aren’t the only option when it comes to split system installation

When it comes to your home, it isn’t just your comfort you need to take into consideration. You also need to think about appearances.

For many, the traditional wall-mounted split system is simply too distracting and obtrusive.

However, seamless ducted air conditioning might be too

Did you know? Many air conditioning manufacturers like Fujitsu , Actron Air and Daikin offer alternatives to traditional wall-mounted systems. There are many different alternatives; these are three of the most popular.

Wall-mounted units

Simple, straightforward and easy to install, wall-mounted split systems are the default option when it comes to split system installation.

Modern designs are sleek and more unobtrusive than their older counterparts.


These units sit flush with your ceiling, allowing you to enjoy the benefits of a split system air conditioner with the seamless, clean appearance of ducted air conditioning.

With a cassette, air can be distributed in multiple directions.


Is ceiling space limited? Bulkheads are compact, discrete systems that are installed on your ceiling and plastered around to create a seamless appearance.

Only the grilles are visible inside your home.
