When you’re suffering in heat waves, the last thing you want to do is sit in front of a wall air conditioner and wait for your room to cool. It’s much better to come home from work and be greeted with a uniformly cooled and dehumidified house. Ducted air conditioners generate cool air from a compressor/ condensing unit that sits outside of your home, connected to an indoor fan coil unit, located within the roof cavity of the house. Ductwork runs through the house and outputs the cool air via a series of vents (diffuser outlets) in each room. Nowadays, most ducted air conditioners, called reverse-cycled ducted units, also heat your home during the winter months.
If you feel that centralised ducted air conditioners are not as efficient as other cooling options, you can opt for a zoned ducted air conditioning system that allows you to control the amount of cooling in each zone of the house. You can keep the areas you’re using cool, while keeping the cooling system off in other areas of the home. Another advantage of this air conditioning system is the sound output is low. You certainly don’t have to worry about the overpowering sound of the old style box air conditioners or “window rattlers”.
You need professional installation for this type of air conditioning system. Not many houses have pre-installed duct work necessary to connect into the ducted system, so the installers put the duct work in and the compressor/ condensing unit/ indoor fan coil unit and test that everything is working. They design the system to work perfectly with your house setup, so you can designate zoned cooling around the house. Professional installers also choose a ducted system that’s powerful enough to cool your home, with zoning often a main consideration. It is a customised ducted system that takes many factors into consideration, with the experienced staff providing you a detailed written recommendation and quotation after they’ve assessed your house setup.
