Home air conditioning: what are the different types of appliances?
Today there is a wide variety of models on the air conditioning market, most of which fall into two main categories: packaged air conditioners and split air conditioners. For the air conditioning Athens GA this is important.
Monoblock air conditioners
The monobloc air conditioner is an air conditioner made up of a single block.Available in a fixed version, it is aesthetically similar to a wall radiator. Connected to an outlet to the outside, the monobloc air conditioner evacuates the hot air from a room to the outside.
In its mobile version, the device performs the same operation, with the difference that a flexible duct installed on the windowsill of an open window replaces the outlet on the front for the evacuation of hot air to the outside.
Split air conditioners
Competitors or alternatives to monobloc air conditioners, split air conditioners have at least two units on their side, one finds its place inside the accommodation while the other is installed outside the house. Note that several models invest in the category of split air conditioners:
- Themonosplit air conditioner, fixed or mobile
- Themultisplit air conditioner with several indoor units

When it detects that the interior temperature is too high, the appliance switches on and then stops operating once the desired temperature has been reached. The cycle repeats continuously throughout the day / night.The Inverter air conditioner offers a variable air conditioning speed which allows it to limit consumption peaks.
