Feeling the heat? Or maybe you’re just trying to break the ice with your new home? Either way, a split system air conditioner is a chill choice for keeping your living space comfy and cool. This nifty gadget is making waves in Australia, where the sun often has no chill. But fear not, because where there’s a will, there’s a way to stay cool!

Understanding Split System Air Conditioning

A split system air conditioner is like a good friendship – it’s all about the right connection. The indoor unit and the outdoor unit work together like peas in a pod, one chilling inside while the other takes the heat outside. It’s a cool way to keep your indoors comfortable without making much noise about it!

  • Energy Efficiency: These cool companions are known for not burning much energy while they work. They chill only the area you want, not the entire neighborhood. That’s what we call a cool, cost-effective buddy!

  • Sleek Design: With their modern and sleek design, split systems are the silent but cool type, making them the perfect addition to your contemporary home.

Choosing the Right Split System

Choosing the right split system is like dating – you want a cool companion who’s just the right fit for you. Here’s how to find ‘the one’:

  • Size of the Space: Size matters when it comes to cooling. It’s really important to match the dimensions of your space to the cooling capacity of your split system air conditioning unit. Otherwise you either won’t be able to cool your place properly on those hot Melbourne days or your unit will need to work extra hard to keep up. Luno Electrical can help make sure you install the right size unit and avoid a costly mistake.

  • Energy Efficiency Ratings: A higher rating means your cool companion is an energy saver. It’s like having a partner who remembers to turn off the lights!

  • Brand Reputation: Go for brands that have a cool reputation, you don’t want a hot-headed air conditioner on your hands.


The Installation Process

Now that you’ve picked your cool companion, it’s time to move to the next base – installation. And just like a dance, it’s all about the right moves!

  • Assessment: Before you hit the dance floor, a professional will scout the area to find the perfect spot for your indoor and outdoor units. It’s like finding the right dance space to groove!

  • Installation of Indoor and Outdoor Units: The indoor unit takes the wallflower spot while the outdoor unit likes to party outside. Together, they make a cool dance duo!

  • Electrical Connections: The sparks will fly, but in a safe way, as a licensed electrician ensures all connections are secure and up to Aussie standards.

  • Testing: Once the setup is done, it’s time for a test dance to make sure everything moves smoothly.

  • Demonstration: And of course, a little demo to show you the ropes of your new cool gadget!

Split system air conditioning installation FAQs

Well, split systems are like the cool kids on the block. They are energy-efficient, cost-effective, and give you the power to control the temperature in different rooms. So, you can chill in the living room while your bedroom takes a warm nap. They are also much quieter than their rowdy cousin, the window air conditioner. Just like a good neighbour, they’re seen but not heard.

The installation of a split system air conditioner is a bit like setting up a dance floor. First, a professional will scout the area to find the perfect spot for the indoor and outdoor units to groove. Then, they'll secure the units, make sure all electrical connections are safe and sound, and test the system to ensure everything moves smoothly. Finally, they’ll give you a demo to show you how to keep the cool vibes going.

We hate saying 'it depends' but in this case we have to. The final price needs to include the price of the unit itself, the installation labor, and any materials needed for the disco party to begin. We are experts in split system air conditioning installation and we'll be able to give you a free fixed price quote quickly. 

Choosing the right size is all about matching your dance floor's size with the right beat. The size of a split system is measured in British Thermal Units (BTUs) which determines how much cold or hot air comes out of each unit. We can help you pick a unit with the right BTUs to ensure everything works properly so give us a call for a free quote and some expert advice.

BTUs, or British Thermal Units, are like the horsepower for your air conditioner. They tell you how much cool or hot air your unit can pump out. Just like you wouldn't bring a bicycle to a drag race, you wouldn’t want a low BTU unit for a large space. So, understanding BTUs helps you pick the right-sized air conditioner for your space and ensures you’re not left sweating (or shivering). Of course, our experts can help you with this!

Happy Customers

Andrew and the team installed a Tesla wall charger at my home. They did an outstanding job and went over and above to make sure everything was done professionally and worked properly. Before finding Luno I spoke to many electricians and they often hadn’t done an electric car home charger installation before and didn’t seem to know what was involved. Andrew and the team at Luno quickly put me at ease because it was clear they knew how to install electric car charging. Would highly recommend.
Andrew and Alex were very professional and friendly, they took measures to not leave mess and tidied up after themselves. They were thorough in asking if we wanted switches changed etc to look the best. We love our new fans and bathroom heating light. Thank you
Amazing service - the guys were very professional, on time, replaced all my downlights super fast and overall were so nice (my dog also loved them!). Thanks again!!
