What Is Ducted Air Conditioning?

With its ability to provide whole-house comfort, energy efficiency, customisable zoning and increased property value, ducted air conditioning is becoming a popular choice for home and business owners alike. In this blog, we’ll explore everything you need to know about ducted air conditioning, from how it works to its many benefits, as well as offer tips on maintaining your system for optimal performance.

About Ducted Air Conditioning

Ducted air conditioning is a cooling and heating system that distributes air throughout a building using a network of ducts. The system is typically installed in the roof space or under the floor and the ducts are concealed within the walls or ceiling. The system is controlled by a central thermostat that regulates the temperature of the entire building.

How Does Ducted Air Conditioning Work?

Ducted air conditioning works by drawing in hot air from inside the building and passing it through a filter to remove any impurities. The air is then cooled by passing it over a refrigerant-filled coil and the cool air is distributed through the ducts to the various rooms in the building.

During colder periods, the system works in reverse, drawing in cold air and passing it over a heating coil to warm it up before distributing it through the ducts.

Benefits of Ducted Air Conditioning:

Whole House Cooling and Heating: Ducted air conditioning provides a comfortable environment throughout the entire building, with consistent temperatures in every room.

Energy Efficiency: Ducted air conditioning is highly energy-efficient, as it can cool or heat the entire building from a central unit, reducing energy waste.

Low Noise: Ducted air conditioning is quiet and unobtrusive, with the system installed out of sight in the roof space or under the floor.

Customisable Zoning: Ducted air conditioning allows for customisable zoning, meaning you can control the temperature in specific rooms or areas of the building.

Increased Property Value: Ducted air conditioning is a valuable addition to any property in Illawarra, increasing its value and appeal to potential buyers.

Maintaining Your Ducted Air Conditioning System

Just like any air conditioning system, to keep your ducted air conditioning system in top condition, regular maintenance is required, including:

  • Cleaning or replacing air filters every 3-6 months.
  • Checking ducts for leaks or damage.
  • Scheduling annual professional maintenance and inspections.
  • Keeping the outdoor unit clean and free of debris.
