Reverse cycle air conditioning systems (also known as heat pumps) are electric heating systems which also provide refrigerative cooling.

Reverse cycle air conditioning extracts heat from the outside air, even on mid-winter nights, and transfers it inside. A refrigerant is passed through an external coil, absorbing heat from the outside air. This refrigerant is then pumped through a compressor into a fan coil unit (or ‘condenser’) inside the home, releasing its heat into the room.

An Air Conditioner and Heating system in one, it gives you complete control over your environment. Split system air conditioning is quiet, unobtrusive and economical to run.

What is an Inverter Air Conditioner?

An inverter is an air-conditioner that uses dc power rather than ac power which varies the speed of the compressor eg: no great spike in voltage. This enables the compressor to pump refrigerant as it is required. This means that once the air conditioner reaches the desired temperature, the compressor keeps running where the old non inverter would constantly cut in and out, This gives the air conditioner the ability to be energy efficient, quieter and hold a more stable temperature.

Split System Air Conditioner Features:

  • Ability to have multiple indoor units off one outdoor unit
  • Individual Room Temperature Control
  • Incredible Energy Star Rated
  • Easy clean, Low maintenance

LG Air Conditioning Technology

LG smart Inverter Split System air conditioners are more economical and quieter to run than conventional units. Inverter technology can handle greater extremes in outside temperature, reach the desired room temperature more quickly and maintain a more consistent comfort level than conventional models.

LG smart Inverter technology allows the outdoor unit to vary its speed and output to match the required capacity of the indoor unit. This means LG inverter models can achieve up to 30% more operating efficiency than conventional models and therefore are much cheaper to run.

LG smart Inverter technology controls the output of the air conditioner at the optimum setting. They constantly adjust to maintain perfect LG comfort.

Selecting an Air Conditioner

Choosing the right LG Inverter Wall Mounted Split System is key to energy efficient LG comfort.

Firstly. How big is the space you want to air condition? If the unit is too big for the room, it will use an excessive amount of unnecessary energy. Similarly, if the unit is too small, it will also use an excessive amount of energy as well as struggle to deal with temperature extremes.

Secondly. Think about the size and aspect of the windows as this can effect the capacity of the air conditioner required. The larger the windows, the greater the chance of heat loss or heat gain between the inside and outside areas.

Finally. Consider your house’s building materials and the kind of insulation they provide. Is your ceiling insulated? Different materials have different heat retention or loss properties and also need to be taken into account.

LG latest generation smart Inverter Wall Mounted air conditioners lead the way in energy efficiency and performance. With a wide range of models to suit any environment, there’s certain to be a solution for your needs.



What is split system?

A split system air conditioner is a very popular type of heating and cooling system. It is made up of an indoor unit, which contains the evaporator and fan, and an outdoor unit, which houses the compressor and condenser. The two units are connected by copper refrigerant lines, which carry the refrigerant between the indoor and outdoor units. Split System installation is the process of installing this type of air conditioner in your home. 

How does it work?

A reverse cycle split system air conditioner is designed to heat and cool one room/area of your home.  To heat multiple areas of your home, multiple units would be required.

The evaporator is installed on a wall inside your home, and the outdoor unit which contains the compressor, is located outside. The compressor pumps refrigerant through the copper lines to the evaporator. The evaporator then cools the air in the room it is located, and the fan circulates the cooled air throughout the room.

It is an ideal installation for most rooms, as the outdoor unit can be located up to 10 meters away from the indoor unit. 

Why choose a reverse cycle split system air conditioner?


  • Easy installation process: they are generally straight forward to install
  • Cost effective: it is one of the most affordable ways to air condition your home, both in terms of installation and running costs
  • Quiet operation
  • Dual cooling & heating solutions: it provides both heating and cooling options in a single appliance
  • Efficient energy consumption: split systems are designed in a way that uses less energy compared to other forms of heating and cooling, making them a more efficient and cost-effective option
