split system air conditioners for open plan spaces
A bit about installing in an open plan room.
Open plan spaces require 7.0kw units and up depending on the size of the room.
Generally open plan rooms that include dining, kitchen and living areas will have a section of wall to mount the indoor air conditioner on. Either above a window if there is room or in-between vertical windows. The cheapest installation is to have the outdoor unit directly behind the indoor unit.
In some cases that may mean the outdoor unit would be slap bang in your nice entertainment area. There are alternatives to locating the outdoor unit elsewhere like running pipes through the roof to the back of the house or even on the other side.
