Reverse Cycle Ducted Air Conditioning Components

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

How does it Work?

Air conditioning systems work on the principle of heat transfer. They transfer heat from one area to another.

  • The system fan extracts warm air from the room. Then, the warm air passes over a refrigerant liquid. The refrigerant absorbs the heat from the warm air, and the resulting cooled air is then circulated back into the room.
  • A compressor (the outdoor unit) takes the warm refrigerant and produces a high-temperature, high-pressure gas.
  • Next, a heat exchanger removes the heat from the gas and allows the gas to liquefy and become cool again.
  • Finally, the refrigerant goes into an expansion device. This lowers the temperature and pressure of the refrigerant further, and the recycled refrigerant is ready to use again.

A reverse cycle air conditioning system can ‘reverse’ this heat transfer cycle. So, it can heat/cool your entire house.

Costs for a Reverse Cycle Ducted Air Conditioning System

Each installation is unique, and so the price can vary. Obviously, the number and size of rooms, among other factors, affect the overall cost. We will inspect your home before providing you with a detailed quote. We also have a variety of systems available for you to choose from and provide 12 months interest-free on all ducted systems.

The running costs for a reverse cycle ducted air conditioning system vary according to:

  • System type and size
  • Energy efficiency of the system
  • How long/often you use the system
  • Design of your home (layout, insulation, size and number of windows, etc.)
  • How much you pay for electricity
  • Thermostat temperature selected

PRO TIP – To keep running costs down

  • Close all doors and windows when the air conditioning is on.
  • Use curtains/blinds on your windows (keeps heat out when hot outside, keeps heat in when cold outside).
  • Try to anticipate very hot or cold days, and turn your cooling/heating system on before room temperatures become uncomfortable.

Things to Consider When Installing Reverse Cycle Ducted Heating and Cooling

When installing reverse cycle ducted air conditioning, there are a few things you need to consider.
There’s a big difference between installing this type of system in a new home and an existing home.
For an existing home, you need to be clear about the following things before getting quotes for installation:

  • Home layout: The layout of your home plays a significant role in determining the number of ducts and their placement. A professional installer will consider factors such as the size and shape of rooms, the location of the vents and the position of the unit to ensure optimal performance.
  • Windows and doors: The size, type and placement of your windows and doors can affect the heating and cooling requirements of your home. Rooms with large windows or glass doors may need additional heating or cooling to offset heat loss or gain.
  • Insulation: Adequate insulation is essential for maintaining a comfortable temperature inside your home. Good insulation can prevent heat loss in winter and heat gain in summer, reducing the workload on your heating and cooling system.
  • Ceiling space: The size and accessibility of your ceiling space can affect the installation process and the type of ducting used. An experienced installer will assess your ceiling space to determine the best approach for your specific needs.
  • Occupancy: The number of occupants in your home and their lifestyle can impact the heating and cooling requirements. Larger families or homes with pets may require additional cooling to maintain a comfortable temperature.
  • Outdoor noise restrictions: If you live in an area with noise restrictions, you may need to consider the noise levels of the outdoor unit. Your installer can recommend a suitable location and type of unit to meet any noise regulations in your area.

The term “reverse cycle” refers to heating and cooling. Reverse cycle ducted air conditioners are designed for heating and cooling small to medium-sized spaces.

If you have a reverse cycle ducted system, the first thing you need to do is turn off the unit. Next, fold down the return air grille and then remove the filter. Use a vacuum cleaner to remove all dust, dirt, and debris accumulated on the filter. Then put the filter back in the unit, and you’re ready to go.

One problem that can lead to many difficulties, including not heating, is clogged coils and filters. When these are clogged, the compressor and other system parts can fail prematurely and stop heating the air conditioner.

If you have a reverse cycle air conditioner, you should service it twice, in the spring and fall, to ensure that both the heating and cooling functions work as expected. Air conditioner maintenance also depends on your usage. For example, if you use your air conditioner 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, it may need maintenance more than 1-2 times.

Yes. This is a common phenomenon when large engine/compressor loads startup. These devices cause a minor momentary voltage drop that is noticeable by the lights flashing. This will not adversely affect the electrical equipment in your home.
