Install Ducted Aircon & Get Perfectly Even Temperatures

Ducted aircon installations provide ultimate temperature control. The installation of a ducted air conditioner (HVAC installation) can provide both heating and cooling to each room in your home or office. This is achieved when your AC installer runs flexible ducting in either the ceiling cavity or under the floor. The conditioned air is then distributed through grilles located in the ceiling, walls or floor to provide even airflow to every part of the home. To keep the air clean and safe, aircon ducting has a washable air filter located in the return air grille, which is there to guarantee air quality. To control the entire air conditioning system, we install an electronic control wall panel that gives you complete control of the temperature so you can create your ideal indoor temperature.

Common Types of Ducted Air Conditioners

Single Zone Ducted System: A basic type of ducted air conditioning system that focuses on cooling or heating a single zone or area.

Multi-Zone Ducted System: Multi-zone systems have the ability to cool or heat multiple zones or rooms independently.

Hybrid Ducted System: Hybrid systems combine ducted air conditioning with other technologies, such as heat pumps or solar panels, to optimize energy efficiency.

Reverse Cycle Ducted air Conditioning: You can also install reverse cycle ducted air conditioner systems to give you both heating and cooling.

Ducted Aircon Installation & Advanced Technology

You have many options and features available when installing ducted A/C units: everything from different types of outlets, higher efficiency ductwork, Wi-Fi connectivity, zoning, etc. If you love technology and energy efficiency like we do, our AC installers offer specialist upgrade to an Australian Made product called MyAir, which is made by Advantage Air. The MyAir control system utilises Variable Air Volume (VAV) technology to proportionally adjust airflow from your air conditioner ducting to each room of your home where it is needed most. This creates a super-efficient ducted aircon system that uses less power. The MyAir system incorporates a wall mounted Android tablet which controls the system and has inbuilt Wi-Fi for remote access to your ducted A/C from your device with a range of features to choose from.

Servicing Ducted Air Conditioner Systems

Ducted Air Conditioning FAQ's

  • Is ducted worth it, versus a split system air conditioner?

    Most people choose ducted air conditioners because the units are hidden in the roof cavities, which is a more aesthetically pleasing result. They’re great for heating or cooling your entire home. A split system is cheaper, and better for smaller homes, often only air conditioning a single room.

  • How does a ducted air conditioning system work?

    A ducted air conditioning system consists of an indoor unit, outdoor unit, and a network of ducts that circulate the conditioned air throughout the home. The indoor unit contains the evaporator coil and fan, while the outdoor unit contains the compressor and condenser. The system works by circulating refrigerant between the indoor and outdoor units, absorbing heat from inside the building and releasing it outside.

  • What are the benefits of a ducted air conditioning system?
    Ducted air conditioning systems can provide consistent and efficient heating and cooling throughout an entire building. They also tend to be more cost-effective than multiple split systems or a multi-head unit.
