Centralised or Decentralised Air Conditioning?

Centralised air conditioning systems have been used for decades, and they are still widely designed by building services consultants and used in commercial buildings today. The centralised system uses a single unit to provide cooling throughout a building. There are several advantages to this type of system, including:

     • Lower installation costs

     • Lower operating costs because there are fewer units to maintain;

     • More efficient use of energy

     • Reduced risk of failure because if one unit fails, others do not fail as well

The main disadvantage is that it uses more space than decentralised systems, which means that it may not be suitable for smaller buildings. Also, if there is a problem with the central unit, it will affect all areas within the building. Also, they require more ductwork than decentralised systems, which may make them too expensive for some homeowners. They also require more maintenance than decentralised units because of their complexity.

Decentralised air conditioning systems are less energy efficient and less convenient, but they’re much cheaper to install. In a decentralised system, there’s no one big unit that does everything; instead, there are several smaller units throughout the building. The most common type of decentralised air conditioning systems would split systems that come in different types of wall mounted, cassette, ducted, under ceiling, etc.

There are some advantages for decentralised systems including:

     • Control over temperature

     • More affordable than centralised systems

     • Takes up less space than a centralised system

     • Can be installed in any room or area of the house without affecting other rooms/areas of the house.

In recent years, a number of engineering companies made progress in improving air-conditioning devices, such as retrofitting to adjust indoor temperature according to users’ habits. So centralised air conditioning is becoming more and more popular in modern society.
