Most often, the model is blamed for the initial high cost and solid weight of the external unit. For reliable location, it needs a strong and reliable metal mount.

Selection Tips and Tricks

Before buying HVAC equipment, it is important to determine how much space the device will serve. If you take equipment designed for footage smaller than a room, you won’t be able to achieve comfortable conditions. A weak unit will not be physically able to create and maintain the required temperature level.

It is better to purchase a module with some margin. Then all the available modes will work without unnecessary loads and will provide a pleasant atmosphere in residential and work premises.

A detailed algorithm for calculating the required power of a split system is presented in this article.

Metal block made of metal
The case of the external unit must be metal.The plastic block simply can not withstand extreme weather conditions and aggressive environmental influences.

Options must be chosen clearly for themselves, because each additional function always increases the cost of a split system. It’s worth paying only for those features that are really needed and will be constantly used.

Among the most useful:

  • the ability to switch from intensive mode to night mode - more quiet and economical;
  • self-diagnosis, recognizing internal malfunctions and notifying the owner about them;
  • ionization, which makes the air cleaner and fresher - the option is especially in demand if there are children, allergies or asthmatics in the house.

All other extensions are not so significant and are not always worth giving substantial sums of money for them.

The length of the communication highway is not the most important parameter, but it is still worth paying attention to it. The higher this indicator, the wider the possibility of placing a split system in a room.

How to clean the split system with your own hands from accumulated pollution:

Climatic equipment from the LG concern is reliable, technical “stuffing” and durability. The correct design of the enclosures of the external and internal blocks facilitates the installation process.

The optimal working noise background does not prevent others from doing their own business, resting or sleeping, and a multi-level filtration system cleans the air flow. LG split systems justify their cost with long and trouble-free operation.
