Features of a split type air conditioning unit:

  • Quick and easy installation
  • Individual room temperature control
  • Easy maintenance

2. Console Unit

The console unit is a self-contained air conditioning unit that is traditionally installed into office buildings.  Furthermore, the split system is not practical to install. The range is limited in capacity and can be installed into a wall. It is visibly more pleasing to the developer as only a louver will be required on the outside with a unit on low level inside your office space.

Features of a split type air conditioning unit:

  • Quick and easy installation
  • Individual room temperature control
  • Easy maintenance
  • Inverter technology, offering you a 30% reduction in your energy costs

3. Roof Top Package Unit 

The roof top package unit is a self-contained air conditioning unit that is installed into office buildings, conference rooms and shopping centers. So this is where a split system is not practical to install or where a split system cannot provide the required capacity.

These units are larger in capacity. And with that in mind, are connected to ducting to provide adequate cooling/heating inside desired areas. Fresh air supply can also be introduced to these systems to reduce separate ventilation systems to be installed.

Features of a split type air conditioning unit:

  • Quick and easy installation
  • Visually less intrusive
  • Easy maintenance
  • Inverter technology, offering you a 30% reduction in your energy costs
  • Air quality improvement

Split Air Type Air Conditioning Systems

The midwall split type air conditioning units are extremely popular for your office. They are very easy to install and has a modern and stylish appearance.

There is a separate indoor unit which is mounted inside the room and the outdoor unit (condenser) is installed on the outside wall. As a result, the air conditioning unit is extremely quiet when operating and causing minimal noise.

Features of a split type air conditioning unit:

  • Quick and easy duct free installation
  • Modern, stylish and quiet
  • Individual room temperature control

2. Ceiling Cassette Units 

The ceiling cassette units easily heat and cool your office. In doing so, they save on space with a ceiling mounted cassette air conditioning unit. These systems are ideal for any property where limited space is a consideration.

The ceiling cassette unit fits cosily into your ceiling with no need for wall mounts or extensive duct systems. As a result, it makes the ceiling cassette units almost invisible. With this in mind, it makes the unit discreet and a compact alternative to traditional split type and ducted air conditioning systems.

The compressor unit can be mounted up to 50m away from the ceiling cassette unit, providing quiet operation.

Features of a ceiling cassette air conditioning unit:

  • Ceiling mounted, no wall unit required
  • Extremely discreet and compact design
  • Ceiling fan air distribution
  • Quiet operation
  • Provides both cooling and heating options

3. Under Ceiling Split Units

Features of an under ceiling air conditioning unit:

  • Compact and elegant design
  • Adjustable louvres assure easy diffusion of air throughout entire office
  • Easy installation

4. Ducted Split Units 

Ducted air conditioning systems provide discreet air conditioned comfort through your entire office. Ducted air conditioners consist of an indoor and outdoor unit. The indoor unit is concealed out of sight and only the vents will be visible throughout your office. The outdoor unit will be positioned in a discreet location.

Features of a ducted air conditioning system:

  • Visually less intrusive
  • Heating and cooling throughout your office

VRV Air Conditioning Systems 

VRV (Variable Refrigerant Volume) air conditioning systems are high-end type systems.  The VRV air conditioning system can be connected to up to 64 indoor units.

Having said that, this option is great when heating or cooling large office buildings.  The longer pipe runs allow for the condensing unit/s to be positioned on a roof or basement area that will be known as the plant room.

These systems also allow for multiple styles of indoor units, allowing you to choose the indoor unit’s design and functionality that suits your needs.

In addition to this, VRV systems allow for simultaneous heating and cooling, as well as hot water generation with hydrobox technology. These kind of systems are very high energy efficient.

Features of a VRV air conditioning system:

  • Up to 64 indoor units connected to one outsider condenser unit
  • Energy Efficient
  • Multiple styles of indoor units
  • Simultaneous heating and cooling options in various areas

Multi Split Air Conditioning Systems 

Now this is where air conditioning starts getting “clever”. With just a single outdoor unit, one can connect up to five indoor units.

Not only can multiple indoor units be connected, but one can even have a variety of types of indoor units. So one could have a wall mount in one area and have ducted types in the other.

This solution is also a little-known method of comfort cooling. Furthermore, it is highly versatile and cost effective as it runs with just one condensing unit.

There are limitations to this type of system, but ask an Airvent sales engineer to run through the options and you will be pleasantly surprised.

Features of a multi split air conditioning system:

  • Each unit operated independently
  • Easy installation
  • Choose individual style and performance for any space
  • Heating and cooling

Ventilation Systems

1. Fresh Air Supply Systems 

Where natural fresh air is not possible, mechanical fresh air supply is compulsory.  Where an area is being air-conditioned mechanical fresh air supply is compulsory to comply with local municipal regulations.

Fresh air can be introduced by an independent fresh air system.  This can be done by intake air via a weather louver on the outside of a building or it can be introduced via the air-conditioning system. It depends on the AC application installed. To introduce enough oxygen and reduce the CO2 levels inside office areas is key for a better workspace and higher efficiency levels.

Selecting the correct fan application with the required fan duty is key to ensure a working system can be installed, our in-house engineering team at Airvent can assist in calculating and finding the right solution for you.

2. Extract Air Systems

Bathroom, canteen or ablution ventilation systems is compulsory if natural ventilation cannot achieve the required air flow inside the area(s).

Extract air can be extracted by an independent extract air system by extracting the air via a weather louver on the outside of a building. To ensure a clean-, fresh- and healthy air space is vitally important for office commercial and industrial areas.

Selecting the correct fan application with the required fan duty is key to ensure a working system can be installed, our in-house engineering team at Airvent can assist in calculating and finding the right solution for you.

3. Kitchen Extraction and Make-Up Air Systems

Where industrial cooking takes place extracting the dirty air is important. Industrial custom build canopies with filters can be installed over a cooking area to ensure the dirty air is sucked in and discharged above roof space by connecting the canopy with ducting and extracting the air using a specified fan.

Due to the large volume of air that is being extracted it is key to introduce what is called “make-up” air. Essentially the make-up air is slightly less than the air that is being extracted to ensure a negative pressure inside the kitchen area.

Selecting the correct fan application with the required fan duty is key to ensure a working system can be installed, our in-house engineering team at Airvent can assist in calculating and finding the right solution for you.
