Versatile & effective split systems

Split system air conditioners represent a versatile and efficient solution for maintaining a comfortable climate in residential and commercial settings alike. Comprising a condenser (external unit) that contains the compressor and outdoor coil, and an internal unit that emits cool or warm air into the room, these systems strike an excellent balance between performance and practicality without necessitating extensive ductwork. This makes them ideal for integrating into existing structures or areas where ducted air conditioning is impractical.

Too Hot To Handle excels in providing top-tier split system installations, assuring that each system is optimally tailored to the space’s requirements for supreme comfort and efficiency.

Selecting the right split system air conditioner

Selecting the right split system air conditioner is a critical decision that hinges on various factors to ensure you achieve the desired comfort and efficiency. The size of the space to be cooled is paramount; an undersized unit will be ineffective, while an oversized one can lead to unnecessary energy consumption and shorten the lifespan of the unit as it turns on and off more frequently. Features such as inverter technology can provide more energy-efficient operation by adjusting the power used to suit the actual requirement for that space.

Too Hot To Handle’s experts can guide you through the selection process, ensuring that you choose a system with the appropriate capacity and features tailored to your specific needs, room characteristics, smart capabilities and budget.

Scott and guys removed an old split system and installed two new split systems for us. All workers were polite and professional throughout the day (Too Hot To Handle and DLK Electrical Solutions). Very happy with systems and rebates available. Felt very comfortable with these tradies in our home. No hesitation to recommend this business and their workers. Cheers and thanks. Janine

Matt and team installed our new electric hot water service after our gas one gave up the ghost. He pulled a lot of strings to get one very quickly, so we were only without hot water for a day and a half. He ensured we also got all the government rebates. After sales service has been excellent.

Scott and Matt are fantastic to deal with. They were efficient, competitively priced and professional. I can't recommend them enough. Our new heat pump hot water service is brilliant, and they helped us get the government rebates.

I booked the job with Matt and Scott 3 weeks ago for a full duct refit for our ducted heating. They are very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. We were delighted with the price and the workmanship on the day. The guys arrived early, got the job done in a professional manor and went above and beyond. We will definitely use them again and we highly recommend them. Thanks Matt, Scott and the team.

Can't recommend these guys enough! They responded to my inquiry immediately, took initiative to get to my regional property and quote within a week and install was only a few days later. They did an amazing job, left the place spotless and the unit looks great. They also install customer supplied split system units which is surprisingly difficult to come across. 10/10

Energy efficiency

Split system running costs

The running costs of split system air conditioners are an important consideration for budget-conscious consumers. These costs can vary depending on the energy efficiency of the unit, the size of the space being conditioned, and the frequency of use. Split systems with a higher energy star rating generally consume less power while being just as efficient, this translates into a lower electricity bill.

Too Hot To Handle assists customers in selecting energy-efficient models that suit their specific needs and provides expert advice on usage patterns and maintenance schedules to keep running costs to a minimum, ensuring that your split system is as economical to operate as it is effective in temperature control.

Keeps things running smooth

Split system servicing and repairs

Regular servicing and timely repairs are vital for maintaining the efficiency and longevity of split system air conditioners. Servicing typically includes cleaning filters and coils, checking refrigerant levels, inspecting electrical components, and ensuring that the condensate drain is clear. These routine checks can prevent common issues such as reduced heating/cooling efficiency, strange noises, or unexpected system shutdowns.

Too Hot To Handle provides comprehensive servicing and repair services, employing experienced technicians who can diagnose and resolve issues swiftly, ensuring that your split system continues to operate at its best. Their proactive approach not only maintains the performance of your air conditioner but also safeguards against potential hazards, keeping your environment comfortable and safe.

Frequently asked questions

Most split system air conditioners last around 7 years, but this can be extended for a few more years with regular maintenance performed by a professional. Getting your split system air con serviced frequently will prevent it from developing problems, which would decrease its lifespan even further.

Here are some common symptoms that mean your air con needs to get looked at:

Rumbling or chattering sounds
Slow to heat or cool room
High energy costs
Call in a certified technician to perform an inspection for greater insight into the issue at hand.

If your A/C is failing to heat or cool the house at all despite running for a long period of time, the culprit may be a failing condenser coil or a refrigerant leak. This is usually due to the condenser coil becoming clogged or in the latter case the unit being moved or installed incorrectly. Call us now so one of our technicians can take a look at it ASAP.
