Portable Air conditioners are perfect for anyone who wants to control the temperature in a room, but are constantly on the move. They are easy to use and don't require any installation. They are often lightweight and easy to move and include features such as timers and remote controls.
Due to their compact nature, portable air conditioners output starts at around 2-2.9 KW and don’t go much beyond that. Big brands such as Delonghi, Dimplex, Hisense, Electrolux and Teco supply a very good range of portable Air Conditioners which come with either a 2 or a 5 year warranty and an optional backup plan for added protection.
Split System Air Conditioners are fixed and require installation by a professional. They consist of two parts, one that is attached to the inside wall that allows you to feel the air, and the other being on the outside which exhausts the heat out. They are efficient, quiet, and a lot more powerful. Split systems will cool or heat larger areas quickly.
Features include built in wifi as well as motion sensors and air ionisers.
Domestic split system air conditioners range from 2-2.9 KW to around 9-9.9 KW. Fujitsu, Kelvinator, Mitsubishi Electric, Panasonic and Teco offer a large selection of split system Air conditioners, which all have their own unique features and often include a 5 year warranty.
Box air conditioners are the most simple to use and offer easy installation. It's a good choice for simple cooling and heating in rooms that are a bit smaller. Though they aren't big, they efficiently cool or heat a room in no time at all. Box air conditioners plug into any household power point with any additional electrical upgrades.
Often box air conditioners come with handy features such as air ionisers, remote controls and timers. The cooling capacity ranges from 1-1.9 KW all the way up to 6-6.9 KW. Compact and easy to install, most box air conditioners come with longer warranties up to five years.
Split system air conditioners are generally considered the most efficient. Split systems have an outdoor compressor unit and indoor air-handling units connected by refrigerant lines, allowing for more efficient cooling. They often use inverter technology to adjust compressor speed based on cooling needs, optimising energy efficiency.
