Re: Split a/c
A regular split system has the air handler with evaporator coil mounted anywhere inside the house. Usually you want it near the exterior wall where the Condenser is located to save installation costs.
A mini split as mentioned, usually has a wall or ceiling mounted indoor unit that has the evaporator coil and fan integrated in a smaller more compact enclosure than a conventional split system. SOme of these residential mini split systems can have up to 8 indoor units on one single outdoor condenser. Commerical system can have up to I think 50 indoor units on a single array of outdoor condensers. Those systems are usually referred to as VRF (Vairable Refrigerant Flow) systems. Some versions can heat and cool simultaneously in different zones. You can get them up to about 30 Tons of combined capacity. THere's an array or indoor units to choose from including air handlers.
