Energy-Efficient Highwall Air Conditioners

highwall type unitsHighwall units are by far the most common type of units installed in New Zealand as they are inexpensive to install, very efficient, quiet in operation and decor friendly. They comprise of a Wallmount unit mounted high up on a wall in the room of your choice and coupled to the outdoor compressor unit.

In Northland many people find that one unit installed in a living area provides enough heating, when the passage door is open to keep the bedrooms comfortable as well. However why not pamper yourself and install one in your bedroom as well – for total comfort.

When installing Wallmount Units into existing homes mostly they are positioned on an outside wall to facilitate easy drainage of the condensate water from the dehumidification process which occurs when the units are in the cooling mode. However they can easily be placed on an internal wall if the condensate can be suitably drained away ie. via a pump or down through a cupboard and under the house.

Installation into new homes is more flexible as drains and pipes can be installed though the framing, or ceiling before the linings are fixed in place or before the concrete floor slab is poured.
