What is the difference between Single and Multi Split systems and which do I buy?

A Single Split system air conditioner consists of one indoor unit connected to one outdoor unit and can only effectively heat or cool one room. A Multi Split system can connect multiple indoor units to one outdoor unit and can be used to heat or cool multiple rooms. To determine which one you should buy contact your local dealer who will help you decide which option best meets your needs.

Do I need a Ducted System in my house?

Depending on how many rooms you wish to heat or cool, and the size of your house, ducted air conditioners can be a more economical option over split systems.
