Do you know the different types of AC?

Types of AC

If you’re looking to refresh the atmosphere where you are, it is a good idea to resort to air conditioning. It is important to choose the right equipment for you since each one has different characteristics. Below, you will find many types of AC and their description.

Wall Split, Sky Floor Split, Split Cassette, Split Ducts, Window, Portable, Compact… There are a lot of them. The word “Split” means that the equipment is divided, therefore it has two units: one inside and one outside. It is also important to know that there are different capacities, which, in 90% of cases, are directly proportional to the heated volume. The variety of equipment allows us, depending on the architecture of the place and the client needs, to deliver a solution.

Currently, there are many air conditioning systems that meet HVAC standards, we can classify them into 3 categories: domestic, commercial and industrial.

The domestic:

They are equipment that airs up to 60 square meters, therefore, its use is concentrated in houses, offices, shops, etc.

The commercial:

These A/C work from 60 to 120 square meters, you can usually find them in commercial stores, large offices, etc.

The industrial:

They are machines for large spaces over 120 square meters. We can find them in shopping centers, supermarkets, buildings, etc.
