How does ducted air conditioning work?

Ducted air conditioners generate cool air with the use of a compressor condensing unit situated outside your home. This unit is connected to an inner fan coil, which is located in your roof cavity. Air is distributed through your home with the help of ductwork, which sends it into respective rooms through outlets.

This system is also able to generate warm air to keep you comfortable during the cooler months. When a ducted air conditioner is used for heating as well as cooling, it’s known as a reverse cycle system.

How do ducted air conditioners and conventional systems differ?

While ducted and conventional air conditioning systems both deliver benefits, there are clear differences between the two.

Ducted air conditioning is discreet, hidden behind the walls and ceilings of your home or workspace. As they can be zoned, they allow you to control each individual space according to your temperature needs, and to better maintain an even temperature throughout your property. With a ducted air conditioning system, you’ll enjoy quieter operation and ultimate comfort all year round.

Split system air conditioning is usually more flexible than ducted air conditioning, as it can be installed only in specific rooms with additional units able to be added at any time. It’s generally a better option for smaller homes and is cheaper to install than a ducted system. As split system units aren’t concealed behind walls or in the roof spaces of your property, they can create unsightly interior spaces. They’re also not as efficient as ducted units and tend not to maintain an even temperature in larger spaces.

Where does ducted air conditioning work best?

At home

If you have a large home with more than three bedrooms, a ducted reverse cycle air conditioner is a great way to save money and keep your home comfortable all year round. With a ducted system, you’ll only need one unit instead of several split-system air conditioners to maintain the perfect temperature throughout the various spaces of your home. You’ll be able to control the climate in each space with the help of thermostats.

At work

Ducted air conditioners are perfect in the workspace. Not only do they help you maintain a comfortable temperature through a single system, but they also allow for zone control. This helpful feature lets you divide your system into zones and control them independently, which is perfect if you have individual office spaces or specific areas needing set temperatures.
