- 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.
- What is the typical warranty for ducted air conditioning systems?
The typical warranty for ducted air conditioning systems is a 5 year parts and labour, manufacturer’s warranty.
- What is a ducted air conditioning system?
Simply, a ducted air conditioning system is a centralised heating and cooling system that uses ducts to distribute conditioned air throughout all rooms, within a property.
- What are the costs involved in installing a ducted air conditioning system?
The cost of installing a ducted air conditioning system in Australia can vary depending on factors such as the size of the building, the complexity of the installation, and the type of system chosen. On average, the cost of a ducted air conditioning system ranges from $8,000 to $20,000 AUD.
- How do I choose the right ducted air conditioning system for my building or property?
When choosing a ducted air conditioning system, consider factors such as the size of the building, the number of rooms to be cooled or heated, and the climate. It’s also important to consult with a professional to ensure that the system is properly sized and installed for your specific needs.
- What is the difference between reverse-cycle and cool-only ducted air conditioning system?
A reverse-cycle ducted air conditioning system is able to both heat and cool a building while standard, cool-only systems can only cool.
- How often should I service my ducted air conditioning system?
It’s recommended by the manufacturers to have your ducted air conditioning system serviced at least once a year to ensure it’s running efficiently and to prolong the life of the unit.
