    Hi group,

    I am wondering if I leave just one unit of my 4-split air-con on,
    will the power consumption be the same as leaving all 4 units on?

    I was thinking if there is only one compressor, then switching on just one unit, would 'take-up' the
    whole compressor?

    I for one do not understand what your talking about.

    I have had my head in the clouds for years, so it is probably all me.

    Ok, LOL!

    Ehh...what do u mean ' totally different system'?

    Probably a stupid question coming up.
    Just how many condensers does a split air-con system have?
    I can only see one 'physical' box outside my home which all the 4 air-cons are connected to.
    Someone once told me that this 'box' can contain about 2 or more condensers serving different
    air-con units.

    Actually, it is the compressor that runs. The condensor is just the heat
    exchanger that rejects the heat.
    It will consume less, but not necessarily 25%, since the one may see a much
    greater cooling load than it does when four are running, so the power into
    it will go up.

    Eh...but what if the all the 4 air-con units are in separate rooms?
