Will and his team have completely blown us away with their expertise, customer service and response time. We have engaged their services to help us at The Hive Business Space in Maroochydore. We never expected this level of service was even a possibility! Not only did they arrive on time, their knowledge and understanding of our problems was evident within 5 minutes of arriving. Their quote was more than reasonable and the after sales service is the reason that you should choose these guys! If we could give more than 5 stars, we would! Thank you!

Compressor Unit Outside A Building

What Is A Multi-Head Split Air Conditioning System?

A multi-head split air conditioner is a type of central air conditioning system that uses multiple compressors to provide cooling. Each head is connected to a separate duct and can be controlled independently. As such, the multi-head system is ideal for buildings that require different temperatures in different rooms or zones, as the individual heads can be adjusted accordingly.

Multi-head systems are often used in large office buildings, hotels, apartment complexes and other facilities with multiple rooms. They can be used at home as well to create different temperature zones in various areas of the house.

Benefits Of Multi-Head Systems

The multi-head split airconditioning system (MHSAS) is one of the most efficient systems available on the market today. MHSAS provides reliability and high performance, which also makes it a great choice for your home or business. MHSAS has many benefits, including:

Suited To Larger Properties

A multi-head split air conditioning system is a great way to cool your home if you have a large property. Thanks to the multiple indoor units that you can place in different rooms, you not only have greater control over the temperature, but it means that you don’t have to waste energy cooling rooms that don’t need A/C, like the bathroom.

The best part about this type of system is that it can be installed in almost any size property, from apartments to family homes. You don’t need to worry about space limitations or wiring issues when installing a multi-head split air conditioning system either.

Saves Space

A multi-head split air conditioning system is a great way to save space, especially outdoors. With this type of system, you only need one outdoor unit, no matter how many indoor units you have. This looks much tidier too, improving the curb appeal of your property.

As well as saving space, having just one outdoor unit can save you money on electricity costs compared to other types of systems. It’s also easier to maintain, as there are fewer outdoor components exposed to the elements.

Allows For The Independent Control Of Units

Perhaps the biggest benefit of this type of system is the fact that you can control different rooms independently from each other, ensuring an optimal temperature for everyone, whether that’s multiple businesses sharing one building or families with different cooling and heating preferences. This is a great way to save money on your energy bills too as you can turn the air conditioning off in rooms you aren’t using.

In addition, this system allows you to switch between cooling and heating with ease, so you don’t need a separate heating system for winter.

What Buildings Are Multi-Head Split Systems Best Suited For?

Multi-head split systems are a great choice for any building, from offices to classrooms and even warehouses. While they are usually associated with larger buildings, a multi-split-air conditioning unit is an ideal choice in any building where the independent control of room temperature is needed.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can a multi head air conditioner be used for two rooms?

Yes, multi-head, or multi-split, air conditioners are able to cool separate rooms. While not as extensive as ducted systems, multiple indoor units can be connected to one outdoor unit so that individual rooms can have the temperature-controlled separately.

What is a multi head air conditioning system?

A multi-head air conditioner is a mix between a split system and a ducted system. Up to six indoor wall-mounted units can be controlled by one outdoor unit, allowing for individual temperature control in each room.

How does a multi-head split air conditioner work?

A multi-head split air conditioner is a type of air conditioner that utilises a number of ‘heads’ which are connected to a single outdoor condensing unit, which provides the cooling power for the entire system. The individual heads are typically mounted within the ceiling or along walls in their respective rooms or zones.

When the system is activated, the condensing unit sends refrigerant to each of the ‘heads’, cooling the air within them. The cooled air is then distributed throughout the space, providing a comfortable atmosphere. Depending on the system chosen, the units can also offer filtration and dehumidification, increasing air quality and energy efficiency.

What’s the difference between multi-split system and ducted air conditioning?

While both multi-split and ducted systems offer zoned cooling and heating, they achieve this using different methods. As the name suggests, ducted air conditioners distribute cool or warm air via ducts, with the system typically composed of a condenser unit, an evaporator coil, a blower, an air filter and air ducts.

How many multi-head split system units do I need in my home?

This largely comes down to personal preference. Most homeowners opt to get a separate unit for each room of the house they want to cool.

How much does an MHSAS system cost?

The price of this system will depend on your home’s size and the number of rooms that you want to cool. We offer a free on-site installation quote, so you can get a more accurate idea of what the cost of this system will be for your home or building. Contact us today to schedule a consultation.
