More of Your Questions Answered!

More and more New Yorkers are installing air conditioning systems in their homes and that means more and more people want to know all about the marvel that they’re investing in. Before you get baffled by industry jargon, we’ve set the record straight on some of the most frequently asked questions below:
Can you explain how air conditioners work?
Air conditioners work in the same way as refrigerators, only split into two parts. Indoor AC units work in the same way as the cold plate inside a refrigerator and the outdoor AC unit works in the same way as the heated pipes at the back of the fridge. By using a compressor to circulate the refrigerant, heat is transferred between the two AC units.
It is possible to have more than one indoor unit to one outdoor unit?
Yes, this is possible depending on the design of the system, and is something that should be discussed with your professional AC contractor in New York.
What is meant by a ‘split system’?
A ‘split system’ is the term used to describe an air conditioning system that is split between an indoor unit and an outdoor unit.
What is meant by a ‘multi-split’ system?
This is where usually two to four air conditioning units are separately piped to one outdoor unit. Learn more about out ductless split ac systems.
What are VRV and VRF systems?
These abbreviations stand for ‘Variable Refrigerant Volume’ and ‘Variable Refrigerant Flow’, and are normally used to describe a high number of indoor AC units that run from one large outdoor AC unit. This kind of system is typically used in commercial apparatus and carried out by one set of pipes picking up all the indoor AC units and then reverting back to the outdoor AC unit.
Remember; a professional AC contractor will be able to answer any queries you have on your air conditioning system, and it’s crucial to your system’s performance that you only employ a contractor that is reputable and experienced.
