Slip-type air conditioners may not be a luxury cooling thing today. Considering the climate change and how warm it can get in some parts of the Philippines at certain times of the year, a typical average-income family is likely to buy and install an air conditioner. However, there are options to choose from depending on the floor area that needs cooling, the budget, and the kind of place.

In recent years, split type air conditioners have caught the attention of modern homeowners. Just like the window type air conditioning unit, split type air conditioners are easy to install. Aside from easy installation, having a split-type air conditioner offers other advantages.

  1. Quiet – A split type air conditioner has two units—the indoor and outdoor unit, which is the compressor. With window type air conditioner, the unit is located inside the house, hence, buzzing can be heard. With a split type air conditioner, the compressor is located outside the home therefore the absence of sound or noise, depending on how one hears it.
  2. Cost Effective – Unlike central air conditioning system, a split type system does not require any ductwork so installation is not so expensive.
  3. Attractive – Modern designs of split type air conditioners are sleek and can blend beautifully with contemporary house designs.

And now that you’ve figured the advantages of using split type air conditioners, below are the top 10 brands of the best split type units in the Philippines.
