Types of Air Conditioners:
Air conditioning systems come in all sorts of shapes and sizes based on functionality and purpose. There are three main types of residential air con for homes; split system, ducted or evaporative.
Split systems are a mounted unit that is installed on the wall of the designated area for cooling/heating. These units are a cost-effective option if you only need one to two rooms air conditioned. Ducted and evaporative systems cool/heat an entire house through ducting pipes which emit air via vents on the ceiling.
Kelvinator is an American company founded in 1914. They are now owned by Swedish conglomerate ‘Electrolux’. They are one of the smaller players in the Australian air con market but still serve as a reliable and energy efficient air conditioner.
