With a Split System, the compressor (Outdoor Unit) is located outside your house, with the Fan Coil Unit (Indoor Unit) generally wall mounted on an external wall. There are a number of different options of configurations, with varying custom installation available to suit any house type with the outdoor units located in alternate locations.
