Split, Window or Portable AC?

They are all used mainly for cooling the air in a specific room and are easily controlled with a remote control - Split, Window and Portable ACs. However, in order to choose the best option for you, you should know the difference between them.



The split AC is divided in two parts - one inside the room and one on the outside, which means that it takes more space than the window and portable ACs. However, if you value the inner space more, the portable AC would be the worst choice as it’s a single but big unit placed on the floor near the window.



Regarding design, probably the inner body of the split AC looks best, considering that it takes less space in the room and is usually mounted high on the wall. However, its outer body is not very pretty, so if you care more about the exterior you should choose the portable AC. It’s the only one from the three types that cannot be seen from the outside of the building.



If you’ve bought a split air conditioner, you should call a professional to install it. As both the inner and the outer body are mounted on the wall it will cost you more than installing window or portable AC. You can install the last two on your own and it will be cheaper. However, you should consider your window type and size before buying a window unit. For the portable air conditioner this doesn’t matter and you could also vent it through a door or the ceiling. Note also that the portable AC could be easily moved from one room to another.



As the split AC’s compressor is outside the room, it’s the most quiet option. The compressor and the evaporator of the Window and Portable ACs are at the same place, which makes them noisier. However, the noise level of the portable AC may vary depending on the model.



The fact that in the split system the cooling unit is separate than the compressor enables manufacturers to make the AC more powerful. The cooling capacity in the window and portable ACs is limited. Consider those differences between the three types of AC to choose the one that works best for you.

5 Reasons Why Inverter AC Is Better Than Non-Inverter

Have you ever wondered what is the difference between inverter and non-inverter AC? Take a look at the top 5 advantages of inverters that make them better than non-inverters.

Eco friendly


The biggest difference between inverter and non-inverter AC is the fact that the motor of the inverter compressor has a variable speed. The speed of the non-invertor compressor is fixed. This means that it operates either at full or minimum speed. A censor in the invertor adjusts the power according to the temperature in the room, lowering the electrical consumption and saving energy.

Saving money


Due to the sophisticated operational method of the invertor, its compressor does not work at its full capacity all the time. When the speed is lower, the needed energy is lower too and you pay less money for electricity.

More quite sound


As the compressor motor of the inverter air conditioner does not turn on and off all the time, but keeps working at low power, the operation is more quite.

Longer life


The technology of the inverters not only makes cooling and heating more efficient, but it also makes the AC’s life longer.

Faster Cooling/Heating


Last but not least, the inverter AC is able to cool or heat your room faster than the non-inverter. This is due to the fact that in the beginning of the process, the inverter uses more power than the non-inverter and diminish the power when it gets close to the desired temperature.
