postheadericon Air conditioning is a device that ‘treats’ the air in enclosed spaces

The split type devices are called the split type apparatus, because they are divided into two parts one inside the house called the evaporator, where the air will go out   and the other outside the room called the condenser, where the air is ‘treated’. The split air conditioner is the most modern and most used type. To install it, you have to be careful to know the structure that it needs, to choose the exact capacity of the appliance and to define where in the house each part will be. In order to know more about Air conditioning installation Geelong, one can always seek help online.

Know what you will need to prepare in the house for split air conditioning installation

Start by remembering that one part is inside the house and another is outside. Choose the location where the air outlet will be located and consider that it is connected by pipes and wires to the other part of the appliance, which should be in the outside area. For the infrastructure connecting the two parts of the appliance are used. Copper or aluminum tubes (also called refrigeration tubing), with gauges and thicknesses appropriate to the thermal load you choose (see tip 2 on BTU’s). Tubing with electrical wiring, cables sized according to the load of the conditioner and a circuit breaker unique to each air conditioner

PVC pipes for drainage of water, connected to the pluvial network of the house

If you are building and installing air conditioning, pass the infrastructure (the 3 types of pipes) to the ready walls at the same time that the plumber is doing the hydraulic installation and the boxes are being placed into sockets and switches. If your home is ready and you decide to install the split, you will need to break through the pipes into the wall, into the subfloor or embed in the plaster lining. But if your home is in structural masonry, do not break walls let the pipes appear or go through the plaster lining.

Learn how to calculate Split air capacity for your environment

To calculate the capacity you need to know the area of ​​the environment and whether it receives sunshine in the morning or afternoon. BTU is the acronym for British thermal unit, and it is the amount of BTUs that determines what will be the cooling power of your air conditioner. Thus, smaller rooms, such as bedrooms, will often receive a split with less capacity. To get an idea of ​​the capacity of the split, use the reference table

Choose the best place to install split air

Installing the split in rooms of the house where the air conditioning pipe interferes with the electrical installations or pipes of water and sewage. If you do not follow this tip, high chance of cucumbers in sight! Also avoid placing the air outlet part on the walls that get too much sun. Do not place the air outlet (evaporator) on televisions or stereos, or any electrical equipment because they can be damaged if water evaporates from the evaporator. Leave the air outlet part 15cm away from the ceiling and consider that it needs to be easy to access for cleaning, maintenance or filter replacement. The condenser must be installed outdoors, in a well ventilated place and preferably where it does not catch direct sunlight, to increase the life of the equipment. Remember to try to leave the two parts as close as possible to reduce expenses.
