Aircon Installation Guide

You have enjoyed air conditioning for a long time now, and you have no idea how to install it? This guide will help clueless beneficiaries of air conditioning and maybe inspire them to become professional aircon installers. This guide will share with you everything you need to know before you embark on the journey of aircon installation.

First things first, where do you want to install your air conditioner? At the HDB, office space, condo, warehouse, or container units. Knowing the location to install your aircon leads to another question you need to ask yourself, what type of aircon do you plan for? There are different types of air conditioners, and you will have to choose the right model for your location. Examples of aircon available include:

Casement air conditioner

It is rectangular and vertically longer, and you can install it on a mounting bracket near the window. The advantages of this aircon system are the ease of installing it. And the disadvantage is that the compressor resides with the unit. The casement air conditioner makes some little noise.

Window air conditioner

It is a type of A/C mounted on brackets mounted below the window. They usually are non-inverter types currently produced in Singapore.

Multi-split air conditioner

It is the most common type split into two units, the indoor unit and the outdoor. The compressor is in the outdoor unit while the indoor unit distributes cooled air in the rooms. You will find multi-split air conditioners mostly in HDB.

Ceiling cassette unit

Its description is similar to that of a multi-split air conditioner, only that the ceiling cassette has four flaps that allow cold air to blow evenly in the room. Ceiling cassettes are more suitable for commercial properties, warehouses, office spaces, or retail shops.

Before installing aircon on your property, ask yourself some of these questions:

How many rooms do you need to install air conditioners?

Before purchasing an aircon unit, you must ask yourself this question. If you are planning to cool two rooms, a system 2 unit will work just perfectly. It means you will have one outdoor unit and two indoor units. If you want to cool more rooms in a flat, options exist that meet the requirements accordingly. System 5 units, for example, can cool five places.

What is the budget?

Consider the budget you have for an air conditioner. If you are on a thin budget, you might consider acquiring a second-hand unit. Or go for less pricey options available in the market as long as they meet your cooling requirements.

Do you have to run all the air conditioners in different rooms concurrently?

If you have a four-bedroom house and you don’t occupy all of them at the same time, you don’t need to run all the air conditioners concurrently. To save on energy, you must choose a system that allows you to switch off the other three while running one unit. And in this case, your outdoor unit won’t provide enough Btu to run all the systems; you might consider additional outdoor units.

Now that you have considered all details, installing an air conditioner is a technical thing, and it requires a qualified technician to install it correctly. It is not advisable to DIY air conditioning because you might leave out other components, and your A/C might not function as expected.
