Pros & cons of installing ducted air conditioning

You don't need to suffer through Queensland's scorching summers, installing an air conditioner in your home can provide instant relief from the heat and provide year-round comfort.

But the big question is, which air conditioning option will suit your needs best? Air conditioning can be a significant investment so it's advisable to look at all your options fully.

Ducted air conditioners

Ducted air conditioning generally is a popular choice for larger homes, as it gives you the flexibility to cool or heat your entire home, or only an individual room. This allows you to turn off zones if no one is using them and vary the temperature in different areas of the home.

With ducted air conditioning systems, you don’t have to worry about warm or cold spots throughout the building because every part of your home is evenly temperature controlled. The system operates quietly indoors so that you can stay comfortable without noise disturbance. Modern ducted aircon systems use advanced inverter technology which helps to keep energy costs down. 

How does ducted air conditioning work? 

A ducted air conditioner works by circulating cooled or heated air through a system of ducts, which are connected to vents in various rooms. The air is conditioned in a central unit and then distributed through the ducts to the desired rooms, where it is expelled through the vents to regulate the temperature. The central unit also includes a fan to circulate the air, a refrigerant to cool or heat the air, and an evaporator coil to transfer the heat from the air.
