The Two Main Types of Air Conditioning Systems

Commercial vs Residential Air Conditioning

Air conditioning is the best solution to control the temperature, humidity, and air quality of a property. At Fonko, we provide both commercial air conditioning and residential air conditioning.

Commercial Air Conditioning

We’ve provided commercial air conditioning for; major supermarket chains, retail developments, apartment buildings and complexes, distribution centres and commercial offices. Commercial air conditioning systems are typically larger and more powerful than residential air conditioning systems, as they need to be able to cool and dehumidify large spaces quickly and efficiently. These systems come in a range of types, such as:

  • Rooftop Units
  • Split Systems
  • Hi-wall
  • Cassette
  • Ducted

Residential Air Conditioning

Helping homeowners with their temperature control needs is typically less demanding. For residential purposes, versatility is important which is why we recommend heat pumps rather than air conditioning units. Residential heat pumps are smaller and more energy-efficient, offering the option to both cool homes as well as heat them for year-round comfort.

  • Compact Cassette. Providing discreet heating and cooling through a small grill located in the ceiling. Adjustable louvres distribute air throughout the room. 
  • Floor Standing. Designed to look like a gas or night storage heater, these models are exceptionally quiet, powerful and packed with additional features such as air purifying filters. 
  • High Wall Split. Our most popular models provide unobtrusive heating and cooling through a wall-mounted unit. 
  • Ducted Systems. The ultimate in central heating and providing an even temperature throughout your entire home.

Regardless of the type of air conditioning system, the basic principle of operation is the same. All air conditioning systems use a refrigerant to cool the air and, as a result, bring down the room temperature. Installing air conditioning or heat pumps in your commercial or residential property brings with it years of comfort in even the hottest and most humid weather conditions. A comfortable environment can improve mood, concentration, focus and your overall health and well-being.
