What is Ducted Air Conditioning?

A ducted air conditioning system cools and heats your entire home. The system consists of:

  • An indoor unit, installed in ceiling cavity or below the floor
  • An outdoor unit, roof-mounted, or in yard
  • Air ducts, connecting the indoor unit to air vents throughout the home
  • Room sensors

Is Ducted Air Conditioning Right For Me?

Before you can make this decision, we have to make sure that your home is suitable for ducted air conditioning

We must take into account:

Home Layout

  • Accurate dimensions of each room
  • Orientation

Windows and doors

  • Position, size, orientation

Construction material

Occupancy & use

  • How many people live in the home?
  • Is the home occupied during the day?
  • How is each room/area used? (kitchens, bathrooms, bedrooms, living areas)

Ceiling space

  • Is there a ceiling cavity available for ducts? If not, under-floor ducting may be possible.

Outdoor restrictions

  • Is there a suitable space to install the compressor?
  • Will the noise of the compressor be an issue for neighbours?

Different Ducted Air Conditioning Features And Fixtures

There are newer and more sleek and modern designs for air conditioners and you may not think that the newer Wifi options are that important – But they are!

Take into consideration of:

  • Air vents – wall or ceiling mounted.
  • Controllers – wall-mounted, either one central controller or multiple controllers for a large multi-zone home.
  • Sensors – multiple sensors to maintain the target temperature in each room/zone.
  • Zone control – allows you to set temperatures independently in different zones for maximum economy and convenience.

Modern, fully ducted air conditioning and gas heating systems allow you to air condition the entire house or shut off areas that are not needed. This is done adequately through a series of zone motors strategically installed in the ductwork to help save on energy costs.

Yes, the latest products allow you to turn on individual zones and adjust the temperature from your cell phone or desktop computer.

Depending on the type of unit, care and use, your duct air conditioner should last up to 20 years. After that time, parts become susceptible to aging, wear and tear, which affects their reliability.

Cool air is delivered from a central unit (usually installed on the roof) using a set of ducts to every room or corner of your home in a ducted air conditioner. The air circulation is generally zoned to control the airflow and temperature and turn off certain zones.

In recent years, technological advances in high-efficiency air conditioning systems have resulted in reverse cycle air conditioners having equal heating and cooling capacity. In contrast, gas heaters with Add-On cooling have a cooling capacity that is only about half the heating capacity. In general, there are pros and cons for each system.
