Carrier Air Conditioning – Split system

What is a split system?

Split system air conditioners can be the ideal choices for cooling larger rooms or business premises, and some systems can also provide a source of heating in the winter.

Features of split system air conditioners

As their name suggests, split systems are divided into two separate components, with the evaporator core and controls located inside the home and the compressor, condenser and fans located outside the property, either mounted on the wall or free-standing. Some modern split system air conditioners use sensors to determine when the ambient temperature in rooms rises above a certain point, after which the unit is switched on to reduce temperatures without consuming too much electricity.

Advantages of split systems

Split system air conditioners can be more economical and more energy efficient than some other types of home cooling systems, such as portable or window mounted air conditioners. Locating the condenser outside also avoids the need to ventilate heated air outside the property through ducts and can improve the air quality in rooms. Split systems may be used to cool or heat multiple rooms from a single external unit, and some systems are programmable for greater convenience.

Carrier Invented Modern Air Conditioning.

Split systemCarrier Air Conditioning will forever have the advantage that their founder, Willis Carrier, became the “Father of Air Conditioning”. Born in New York in 1876, Willis earned an engineering degree from Cornell University in 1901. Just a year later, he invented a device to control humidity, which became the fundamental building block for modern air conditioning.

It was while standing on a foggy Pittsburgh train platform that Willis Carrier stared through the mist and realized that he could dry air by passing it through water to create fog. This idea would make it possible to manufacture air with specific amounts of moisture in it.

The machine he invented was initially designed for the Sackett-Wilhelms Lithographing and Publishing Co. in Brooklyn, N.Y. and was known as ‘The Apparatus for Treating Air. It could blow air over cold coils to control room temperature and humidity, keeping paper from wrinkling and ink aligned. Finding that other factories want to get in on the cooling action, Carrier established the Carrier Air Conditioning Company of America.

Willis Carrier was inducted into the National Inventors Hall of Fame in 1985 and in 1998 was named one of TIME magazine’s “100 Most Influential People of the 20th Century”.

How air conditioning has changed our lives.

Willis Carrier’s invention gave rise to numerous industries that power our economy today. Manufacturing of everything from baked goods to wartime supplies was made possible by air conditioning. Air conditioning led directly to summer movie blockbusters as people came to cooled theatres to escape the heat. The precise control of temperature and humidity made possible by his invention even enabled shopping malls, transatlantic flight, and the computers and servers that power the internet.


Today the Carrier legacy lives on as the company founded by Willis Carrier continues to reinvent the industry and shape the world we live in. Carrier Air Conditioning continues to be innovative in their approach to sustainable manufacturing practices and their production of energy-efficient products. Every day, Carrier brings comfort to the world.

DRYING operation – The fan speed will be automatically controlled. If the room temperature is lower than 10°C (50 F), the compressor stops operation and restarts until the room temperature is above 12°C (54 F).
