Monobloc air conditioning

Unlike the multi-split air conditioner, the monobloc air conditioner has only one indoor unit. Even if it is not a "power beast", the monobloc air conditioning does, however, have some good arguments. Indeed, it remains by far the most common option, in this case among households. This can be explained quite logically by its cost, which is around 300 euros.

Also, this standard air conditioning is a good investment in the long term. Compared to other energy-intensive models on the market, the monobloc air conditioning system is a good investment in the long term. it has a low energy consumption. The latter helps prevent high energy bills! In the home as well as in the business, it is therefore of obvious financial interest. Also, its installation does not require major work. However, once installed, expect to pay between €70 and €150 plus VAT per year for maintenance.

Reversible air conditioning with ducts

Netgui | All in all, how much does air conditioning cost?

The special feature of a ducted reversible air conditioner is that it has concealed indoor units. The air flow is provided by ducts hidden in a false ceiling. Very flexible, this device will be useful in summer and winter. Indeed, similar to a thermodynamic heating system, the reversible air conditioning with ducts will ensure the heating of your home during the winter periods. Conversely, like a refrigerator, it will cool your living rooms in summer!

Its 2-in-1 system is its greatest asset. Therefore, it is equipped with several indoor and outdoor units. However, they can be monobloc. For an area of 90 to 100 m² to be cooled, plan on a budget of between 6,000 and 8,000 euros. In addition to this low price, the cost of maintenance is also high. For example, for a maintenance contract on a reversible ducted air conditioning system, you should pay between €150 and €180 in maintenance costs per year depending on the complexity of the technology.

VRV/DRV air conditioning

This type of multi-zone air-conditioning is mainly used in the tertiary sector characterised by large buildings. This is because, VRV/DRV air conditioning is known for its high power. This is why it remains the number one option for :

  • Administrations and local authorities ;
  • Museums and hospitals ;
  • Educational institutions and hotels.

VRV (Variable Refrigerant Volume) or DRV (Variable Refrigerant Flow) air conditioning is equipped with one or more outdoor units and a variable number of indoor units. Indeed, on VRV models, these units can be up to 60 as opposed to 50 for the DRV, which naturally explains the great interest shown by companies.

In a hotel, VRV/DRV air conditioning can supply each room with an indoor unit. But its characteristics coupled with its complex and time-consuming installation quickly make the final price soar! The purchase and installation of a VRV/DRV system with 5 indoor units alone can cost up to 20,000 euros. Moreover, its use remains particularly delicate.
