Multi-head Reverse Cycle Air Conditioning

In addition to standalone split systems, you can also choose to install a multi-head split system. This solution connects multiple indoor units to the same outdoor condenser unit, cooling or warming several rooms in your home efficiently and economically. With multi-head split systems, you can control each unit independently with its designated remote.

How do multi-head split systems work?

A standard multi-head split system has multiple indoor units (air handlers) that are located in the rooms you want to heat or cool, and has an external condenser that will sit outside in a convenient location. These indoor units can be installed into any room requiring heating and cooling. 

Heat pump technology is present in a wide range of split systems on the market today. Heat pumps circulate refrigerant from the indoor unit to the outdoor through an insulated copper pipe. When warm air is passed over the indoor coil, the refrigerant absorbs the heat. This creates cool airflow that is then expelled into the room. The additional heat that has been absorbed inside is released through the external coil. This process can then be reversed to create heating. 



Planning your multi-head split system

There are a few factors to consider when planning to install a multi-head reverse cycle air conditioner system.

  1. Has your builder made the correct allowances for installing the internal units of a multi-head split system?
  2. Would you like to conceal the split system’s indoor unit behind a bulkhead? This solution includes an access panel to allow servicing.
  3. Does the split system suit your current and future lifestyle, as well as the design of your home?
