In the depths of winter, it can be hard to imagine needing an air conditioner. But at the height of summer, a hot, stuffy house can be very uncomfortable. Cooling down your home should help you get a better night’s sleep when the outside temperature is high. If you’d like to cool your home, but don’t need something as powerful as an air conditioner, it’s worth considering a good room fan or an air cooler. However, if you’ve got your heart set on air con, then read on – our guide will help you to choose the best air conditioner for your home.

Which type of air conditioner should I buy?

There are two main types of air conditioner: single-unit models that are portable and need to be vented through a window or door, and split-unit models that are permanently fixed to a wall.

Single-unit air conditioners

Advantages: 

  • A fairly cheap fix to cool your home
  • Easy to install You vent hot air out through a hose, so you can move the unit from room to room

Disadvantages: 

  • Venting the hose through an open window could pose a security risk
  • Portable air conditioners are not as effective at cooling as split-unit models – they get hot and leak heat back into the room
  • Some models can be heavy, so make sure your chosen unit isn’t too heavy for you to lift comfortably and that the hand-holds are easy to grip

Split-unit air conditioners

Advantages: 

  • Ideal if you have one room that gets very hot
  • A secure way of air conditioning your home – no need to leave windows open
  • Quieter and more efficient than single units
  • Usually more powerful than single units

Disadvantages: 

  • Tend to be more expensive than single units
  • Need to be permanently mounted on an outside wall – installation can be tricky, and you may need to hire a professional

What size air conditioner do I need?

Air conditioners come in various shapes and sizes, but are often described in terms of their BTU (British thermal unit) output. In theory, the higher the BTU claimed, the more efficiently it can cool a room.

If a machine has a higher cooling capacity, it should cool quickly. But, as a general rule, 5,000 to 8,000 BTUs is adequate for most living rooms or bedrooms.

There’s a calculation you can use to work out what BTU is right for you. As a rough guide, multiply the dimensions (in feet) of the room to be cooled by five. So for a 20 x 15 x 12-foot room: 20 x 15 x 12 x 5 = an air conditioner of 18,000 BTUs.

What extra features should I look out for?

Sleep or night modes reduce noise by running the compressor and fan more slowly.

Timer options allow you to set the machine to automatically switch on and off – useful if you want to come home to a cool house or save energy by having the unit switch off once you’ve fallen asleep. Pick a model with a clock and 24-hour setting. Some come with only countdown or delay timers; these need to be reset daily.

Remote controls let you adjust settings without moving from your seat, but are easy to lose. Look for a machine with a dock to store the remote if you’re prone to gremlins hiding your things.

Will I be able to maintain it?

These important tasks will keep your air conditioner in good shape: 

Remove bungs to drain water from portable units at the end of summer, before they are packed away for winter. If the summer has been particularly humid, you may need to drain the unit every few weeks. Water pipes are normally located at the bottom of the machine. Before you buy, check in store that you can bend down and unplug the water pipes easily, as sometimes bungs can be fiddly and difficult to grip.

Clean dust filters regularly on both portable and split models. Before buying, ask yourself whether you’ll be able to easily access these parts for cleaning

What’s the difference between VRV and VRF?

Many people who ask this question, mistakenly interpret it as 2 different HVAC technologies. Actually, those are two different terms for the same type of HVAC technology. Based on Inverter technology compressors, the first VRV HVAC systems were invented by Daikin during the early 1980’s. As a technology leader in the HVAC industry, Daikin had registered the VRV term (which stands for Variable Refrigerant Volume) as an official trademark. All other companies use VRF (Variable Refrigerant Flow) for their similar HVAC systems. Eventually, VRF is the more common term for these types of systems, and this is the term that will be used for the rest of the article.

So what is VRF?

VRF can easily be related to as the “Rolls Royce” of Air Conditioning Systems. It’s a very sophisticated technological air conditioning system, based on several principles:

  1. Refrigerant only – where refrigerant is the only coolant material in the system (in contrary to the chilled water systems, where refrigerant is used for cooling/heating the water that is circulated throughout the whole system).
  2. Inverter compressors that allow lowering power consumption with partial cooling/heating loads.
  3. Several air handlers (indoor units) on the same refrigerant loop / circuit.
  4. Ability of modular expansion (especially applicable for large projects, that can grow in stages).

Typical VRF system structure

A typical system consists of an outdoor unit (comprising one or multiple compressors), several indoor units (often and mistakenly called “fan coils”), refrigerant piping, running from the outdoor to all indoors, using Refnet Joints (copper distributors in pipes) and communication wiring.

Communication wiring consists of a 2 wired cable, chained from the outdoor to all indoors, creating an internal closed loop network, that is an essential part of any VRF installation.

As for the Control, each indoor is controlled by its own wired control panel, while there are some possibilities for wireless remotes (IR) and centralized controllers, enabling controlling all indoors from one location.

How does VRF work?

The operation logic of the VRF is fully built-in inside the system and is proprietary for each  VRF manufacturer. The system gets inputs from the user (e.g. desired comfort temperature) and from the surroundings (outsideambient temperature), and according to that data it implements its logic in order to get to the desired comfort conditions, utilizing optimal power consumptions.

The ability to adjust itself to the outdoor conditions is one of the main factors that makes VRF systems so efficient, compared to the traditional water cooled systems, based on chillers and fan coils.

Now, let’s dive in, and see how it works in details. Let’s take as an example a typical VRF installation, with one outdoor unit and multiple indoors.

At the beginning, the system is in standstill condition (everything is turned off).

Once a user turns one of the indoors “ON” by its local remote, the outdoor “gets noted” regarding it, and starts working. At this point, it will examine the outdoor conditions (temperature), the operating indoor requirements (operation mode, set point temperature), and will operate the compressor at the exact level, required to comply with the indoor requirements.

When another indoor unit is turned on, the outdoor recalculates the requirements from all the indoors, and will increase the compressor’s output, according to the required level of demand.

This process is constantly occurring with any change, performed in the HVAC system.  As described, the VRF system is fully automatic, and regulates its power consumption based on the demand arriving from the indoor units and outside prevailing conditions. User can have influence on the desired indoor comfort conditions, modifying: Operation mode (on/off), Operation state (Cool/Heat/Fan/Dry/Auto), setpoint temperature, fan speed (high/medium/low/auto). Controlling those parameters is the only thing required for proper operation, and the only thing that is required for proper integration with the VRF system.

VRF System types

Cooling only systems (less popular) – those systems can only cool. Heating is not available. Fan and Dry modes are available for each indoor unit independently.

Heat Pump systems (most popular) – all the indoor units can either heat, or cool (not at the same time). Fan and Dry modes are available for each indoor unit independently.

Heat Recovery systems (less popular) – those systems are the most sophisticated ones, where cooling and heating may be available by each indoor unit, independently, at the same time.

Multisplit

A multi split air conditioning unit is a great choice if you wish to air condition more than one location in your house and need to independently control the temperature of each room. It is also a great alternative to a ducted system if the space in the roof or under the floor is restricted.

Multi split air conditioner systems can easily have several interior units linked to one outside unit; the interior units can be wall mounted, floor standing, ceiling cassettes, bulkhead devices plus more and are connected by refrigerant pipelines and cables to one outdoor unit.

Here are some major advantages of using multi split air conditioning system:

Convenient and economical

Multi split air conditioning systems are among today’s most state-of-the-art types of air conditioning. One outside device can easily power up to 4 interior devices concurrently, yet it stays energy efficient when operating one indoor unit at reasonable capacity. Multi split air conditioning systems are quick and effortless to be set up, really peaceful as well as extremely energy efficient.

Space-saving installation

Multiple interior units can be connected to one outside device instead of several outdoor units. This gives you greater installation versatility and room saving choices. Long pipeline runs offer even greater selections for installation.

Pliable instalment

Most multi split air conditioning systems can be installed in large structures and over several floorings due to the maximum offered piping length.

Independent control

Each indoor unit can be run and controlled independently. That is, on/off, temperature, air motion, up/down/left / right and time clock operation. All can be managed from their own wireless remote.

Air Handling Unit

An air handler, or air handling unit (often abbreviated to AHU), is a device used to regulate and circulate air as part of a heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning (HVAC) system.

An air handler is usually a large metal box containing a blower, heating or cooling elements, filter racks or chambers, sound attenuators, and dampers.

Air handlers usually connect to a ductwork ventilation system that distributes the conditioned air through the building and returns it to the AHU. Sometimes AHUs discharge (supply) and admit (return) air directly to and from the space served without ductwork.

Small air handlers, for local use, are called terminal units, and may only include an air filter, coil, and blower; these simple terminal units are called blower coils or fan coil units.

A larger air handler that conditions 100% outside air, and no recirculated air, is known as a makeup air unit (MAU). An air handler designed for outdoor use, typically on roofs, is known as a packaged unit (PU) or rooftop unit (RTU).

Air Cooled

Air conditioning is widely used in the commercial and industrial sectors. It provides comfortable environment which significantly increases work efficiency during both hot summers and cold winters. The commercial sector includes many various properties ranging from small shops, restaurants, cafes and offices to hospitals, large public spaces, hotels and office buildings. In places like restaurants or shops comfortable conditions means not only better working employees, but also satisfied customers.
