How efficient are wall mounted air conditioners?

Wall-mounted air conditioners have developed significantly over recent years.
Manufacturers have been working hard to improve the energy efficiency of their wall mounted air conditioners, making them more economical to run.

Let’s take a quick look at how they work.


What is a split wall-mounted air conditioner?


Split wall-mounted air conditioners are one of the most efficient ways to cool a room. They consist of an indoor wall mounted unit that’s connected by copper pipes to an outdoor wall mounted unit.


How do wall-mounted air conditioners work?


Air conditioners use certain chemicals that can change their form from a gas to liquid. Split wall-mounted units work by a refrigerant being fed into the system’s compressor. This refrigerant will start off as a low-pressure gas. This gas then gets condensed into a liquid as the gas heats up and is pressurised. The liquid can then travel through the condenser tubes and, in the process, becomes a gas again. As the gas loses pressure, it also releases heat and becomes cooler because of the refrigerant. The gas passes back into the compressor and the process repeats itself.

Air from the room is pulled into the air conditioning unit during this whole cycle. It travels over the evaporator coils, which cools the air and pushes it into the room through the indoor air conditioning vents. The air will continue to circulate around until the required temperature is reached. This temperature is controlled by the user.

How much do wall-mounted air conditioners cost?

Prices for wall-mounted air conditioners differ widely depending on the model, the BTU rating and its range of features. Cheaper units begin at around £400 and more expensive units cost around £2000. There are also the installation costs to consider.


Best wall-mounted air conditioners

There are a wide range of different wall-mounted air conditioners to choose from. Many of the world’s top electrical goods manufacturers produce an air conditioning range, including Mitsubishi, Daikin, and Fujitsu, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Whatever the size of the room you require your unit for and whatever your budget, there’s likely to be a quality model for your needs.

The choice is so wide that it makes sense to talk to air conditioning specialists before making a decision. They will make a site visit and then make a considered recommendation.
