Frequently Asked Questions
Split system air conditioning units are one of the most common types of air conditioners found in Queensland homes. A split system unit comprises of two main components, the indoor unit and the outdoor unit, which is why it is called a “split system”. The indoor and outdoor units are connected by electrical wires and thin tubing or “lines”.
Unlike a window unit, this system requires professional installation due to the electrical components. This system keeps the hot air outside and the cool air inside by transporting all of the heat to the outdoor unit to cool the room as quickly as possible.

Split systems are can be a lot cheaper to run when comparing it to ducted air conditioning systems. The only limitation to a split system’s performance is its smaller area coverage, compared to the ducted system that can cover multiple rooms. Split systems are also easier to install and more affordable to maintain.
Ducted air conditioning systems, however, usually cost at least three to four times the running cost of a split system. Ducted heating vs. split system running costs are also around this same range. But this cost estimate could be more if you have an older ducted system.
With increased running costs comes better cooling coverage even for large areas. Ducted aircon is generally more expensive to install and replace. Maintenance of a ducted air conditioner requires specialist attention and higher servicing costs, however, installing a ducted system is more of an investment to add to the property’s value.
Here at Deep Blue Air Conditioning, we recommend that you perform a comprehensive air conditioning service at least once every 12 months. The best time of the year to service your air conditioner is just before the change of season.
If you have a cooling-only unit, spring is the perfect time to service the unit so it is all set for the summer. If you have a reverse-cycle air conditioner, service it twice, in spring and in autumn, so both the heating and cooling functions work as expected. Servicing of the air conditioner also depends on your usage, if you are using your air con 24/7, it may need more than 1-2 services yearly.
Discuss your air conditioning usage with Deep Blue AC’s professionals, and we can help set up a personalised split system air conditioning Gold Coast servicing plan to ensure it runs smoothly throughout the year.
