FRIEDRICH Window Air Conditioner
The type of air conditioner you choose will depend on the size and layout of your space, how many areas or rooms need cooling, and whether you are looking for a permanent or temporary installation. Below we have compiled a summary of the main types of air conditioners.
A monobloc air conditioner is an all-in-one single unit compressing and extracting the heat directly outside, usually through a duct or opening to the exterior.
A window air conditioner is a type of all-in-one unit that is usually retrofitted into an existing window opening, extracting heat directly outside. While it tends to be more efficient than a mobile monobloc air conditioner, it needs to be correctly fitted to avoid air leaks and security risks (such as falling out of the window).
A split air conditioning system is made up of an outdoor compressor unit and an indoor unit connected with pipes containing the refrigerant. The main advantage of the split air conditioning system is that it is easier to install and maintain than ducted systems and quieter than indoor all-in-one systems. Another advantage is that some split systems can also be expanded for one or more rooms. The outdoor unit can be connected to one indoor unit (mono-split) or multiple indoor units (multi-split) making it a good solution for small to medium residential and commercial projects. Although most split indoor units are often wall or ceiling mounted, some systems also have options for recessed installations.
TROTEC Mobile Split Air Conditioner
A mobile air conditioner can be monobloc or split. The most common mobile type is the monobloc with a duct that evacuates hot air from one room to the exterior. Although it is easy to install and more adapted for portable use, it is generally less efficient and noisier than the mobile split air conditioners. Mobile split air conditioners could be a good solution for rented buildings where fixed installations might not be permitted.
With a ducted air conditioning system, the cooled air is transmitted using ducts and diffusers. Although ducted systems might require more maintenance and space than non-ducted systems, they can be recessed into drop ceilings so that they integrate better into the architectural design.
