Split sys­tems allow you to pro­vide com­fort­able con­di­tions in any room, whether it is an apart­ment or an office. Kom­so­mol­skaya Prav­da talks about the best split sys­tems for an apart­ment in 2022

Achiev­ing good indoor cli­mate con­di­tions is get­ting eas­i­er. One of the most pop­u­lar types of equip­ment for con­trol­ling the micro­cli­mate is the air con­di­tion­er, or split sys­tem, as wall-mount­ed house­hold air con­di­tion­ers are often called.

The main pur­pose of split sys­tems is to cool or heat indoor air. Split sys­tems con­sist of two parts. One part of the unit is installed out­doors, and the oth­er in the room. They con­nect through a hole in the wall and work in much the same way as refrig­er­a­tors.

The prin­ci­ple of oper­a­tion of a split sys­tem is rel­a­tive­ly sim­ple. The exter­nal block of the con­di­tion­er is mount­ed on the street, and inter­nal — in the room or in the ven­ti­lat­ing sys­tem of the build­ing. The blocks are con­nect­ed to each oth­er by heat-insu­lat­ed cop­per tubes.

Of course, the air con­di­tion­er only cir­cu­lates the air in the room. To add fresh air from the street, you will have to buy an air con­di­tion­er that has this addi­tion­al func­tion.

Cool­ing or heat­ing of the air in the room occurs due to the cir­cu­la­tion of refrig­er­ant (fre­on) through the cop­per tubes between the indoor and out­door unit of the air con­di­tion­er, when the refrig­er­ant changes from liq­uid to gaseous state and vice ver­sa. The com­pres­sor locat­ed in the out­door unit com­press­es the gaseous refrig­er­ant, which heats up dur­ing com­pres­sion and gives off heat through a heat exchang­er (con­denser) locat­ed out­side. Giv­ing off heat, the refrig­er­ant pass­es into a liq­uid state, and then is trans­ferred through cop­per pipes to the indoor unit, where it evap­o­rates through the heat exchang­er (evap­o­ra­tor) and cools the air in the room. In addi­tion, a split sys­tem can work for heat­ing, then the refrig­er­ant evap­o­rates in the out­door unit, and con­den­sa­tion occurs in the indoor unit.

In addi­tion, some devices have a dehu­mid­i­fi­ca­tion mode, when excess mois­ture is removed from the air.

One of the ele­ments of the indoor unit sys­tem is a fan that sucks in air. The air pass­es through the heat exchang­er, cools or heats up, then ver­ti­cal and / or hor­i­zon­tal lou­vers deter­mine the direc­tion of the flow accord­ing to your set­tings. Thus, the air in the room is recir­cu­lat­ed.

In many mod­els there are fil­ters for clean­ing air flows. The air pass­es through coarse and fine fil­ters, fil­ter­ing out dust par­ti­cles and oth­er con­t­a­m­i­nants.

The pow­er index of a split sys­tem is most often indi­cat­ed in BTU — British Ther­mal Units. The most wide­ly used mod­els with a pow­er index of 7 / 9 / 12 / 18 / 24 kBTU, or even 30 / 36 kBTU (kBTU = 1000 BTU). You can also see mod­els with a pow­er index of 22 / 28 / 35 / 50 / 70 / 95 — in this case it is indi­cat­ed in kW (index = air con­di­tion­er pow­er in kW * 10). The pow­er of the air con­di­tion­er is select­ed depend­ing on the size of the room, the small­est mod­el is suit­able for a room of 20 square meters. m or less, the most pow­er­ful — up to 100 sq. m.

You should also pay atten­tion to the noise lev­el. The air flow pass­es through many ele­ments of the sys­tem, includ­ing the fan. Sophis­ti­cat­ed aero­dy­nam­ics can reduce the noise lev­el of a mod­ern air con­di­tion­er to 20–25 dB (A) — this is a qui­et air con­di­tion­er (whis­per of a per­son at a dis­tance of 1 meter — 20–25 dB (A)). In win­dow mod­els, the noise lev­el is usu­al­ly high­er — from 40 to 50 dB (A). For those who do not want to be dis­tract­ed by extra­ne­ous sounds, it is worth tak­ing a clos­er look at mod­ern mod­els with a noise lev­el of 18–20 dB (A), such mod­els are also among inex­pen­sive split sys­tems.

Kom­so­mol­skaya Prav­da ranked the best split sys­tems for an apart­ment in 2022.

Axioma ASX09J1 / ASB09J1 — non-invert­er res­i­den­tial wall-mount­ed split sys­tem for a 25 m room2. This mod­el is an excel­lent com­bi­na­tion of afford­able price and high qual­i­ty.

The device will per­form best both in the heat and in the cold, and in the off-sea­son. The air con­di­tion­er works qui­et­ly, the noise lev­el at max­i­mum pow­er does not exceed 39 dB — this is com­pa­ra­ble to a qui­et con­ver­sa­tion or street noise at night.

The air flow inten­si­ty is adjustable, the air direc­tion is hor­i­zon­tal when cool­ing and ver­ti­cal when heat­ing.

The split sys­tem has a “com­fort sleep” mode that auto­mat­i­cal­ly reg­u­lates the tem­per­a­ture and a TURBO mode that allows you to reach the desired tem­per­a­ture as quick­ly as pos­si­ble. The device is able to inde­pen­dent­ly detect a refrig­er­ant leak and restart in the event of a mal­func­tion.

You can con­trol the sys­tem not only from the remote con­trol, but also via Wi-Fi, for this you need to addi­tion­al­ly pur­chase a DW11‑B or DW21‑B con­troller and install the Daichi Com­fort appli­ca­tion on your smart­phone. With their help, you can man­age the device from any­where in the world, set a work sched­ule, record per­son­al set­tings, use voice com­mands. But the main advan­tage is that the device can auto­mat­i­cal­ly turn on or off when the own­er approach­es or moves away from the house based on geolo­ca­tion data.

The out­door unit is pro­tect­ed against cor­ro­sion, which not only increas­es the dura­bil­i­ty of the equip­ment, but also great­ly improves its ener­gy effi­cien­cy. The indoor unit is made of durable white plas­tic and is equipped with a built-in dis­play. The sil­ver ion fil­ter puri­fies the air of bac­te­ria, microor­gan­isms and dust.

The man­u­fac­tur­er pro­vides a three-year war­ran­ty on the prod­uct and offers addi­tion­al ser­vices for the instal­la­tion of the sys­tem — you do not have to look for crafts­men on your own and won­der if they will do the job effi­cient­ly.
In addi­tion to this mod­el, the Axioma J series also includes devices designed for areas up to 20, 35, 50 and 70 m2.

How to choose a split system for an apartment in 2022

About the choice of a split sys­tem for an apart­ment told Dmit­ry Batov, expert of the com­pa­ny “BRIZ — cli­mate sys­tems”.

To choose an air con­di­tion­er, you need to pay atten­tion not only to the inter­est­ing fea­tures that you plan to use, but also to the pow­er of the split sys­tem and the fea­tures of the room.

You can use a sim­ple for­mu­la to select the pow­er of the air con­di­tion­er accord­ing to the area of ​​the room. The opti­mal cool­ing capac­i­ty of a split sys­tem will be equal to the area of ​​the room divid­ed by 10. It is mea­sured in kW. For exam­ple, for a room of 25 sq. m. there will be enough air con­di­tion­ing with a capac­i­ty of 2.5 kW. This cal­cu­la­tion prin­ci­ple is suit­able for most aver­age rooms with ordi­nary geom­e­try.

If you have a com­plex room — for exam­ple, high ceil­ings, panoram­ic win­dows, or a spe­cial pur­pose is pro­vid­ed for the room (it is planned to place a large amount of equip­ment or stay a large num­ber of peo­ple), you should con­tact a spe­cial­ist. For the most accu­rate cal­cu­la­tion, you will need to take into account the height of the ceil­ings, the type of room, the num­ber of peo­ple and equip­ment, the amount of sun­light enter­ing the room.

Which split sys­tem to choose — invert­er or con­ven­tion­al (they are also called clas­sic, start-stop or on-off)? Their main dif­fer­ence lies in the algo­rithm of the com­pres­sor. The com­pres­sor of a con­ven­tion­al air con­di­tion­er oper­ates on an on/off basis. It works until the desired tem­per­a­ture is reached, then turns off. In invert­er air con­di­tion­ers, the com­pres­sor does not turn off, but grad­u­al­ly changes per­for­mance. This allows you to effi­cient­ly spend ener­gy on cool­ing, most accu­rate­ly main­tain the tem­per­a­ture and extend the life of the air con­di­tion­er. Anoth­er advan­tage of an invert­er air con­di­tion­er is the low­er noise lev­el. At the same time, tra­di­tion­al air con­di­tion­ers are more afford­able.
