Frequently Asked Questions… Answered…
What are the benefits of ducted air conditioning?
Ducted systems, also known as central air con, can be connected to every space in your home, providing heating and cooling throughout the entire place with ease. They are unnoticed with their stylish, super quiet, low-profile design. Furthermore, they are 75% more efficient than the other fixed speed air con units – therefore, less global emissions (***being the most popular for home and business owners***).
How does a ducted air conditioner work?
A central unit is installed into the ceiling, then funnels through the entire building with vents connected to every room. A central fan coil is used to evenly distribute cool/warm air into your entire building. This offers powerful cooling and temperature control, allowing you to monitor the flow, temp and turning off in any area.
Does ducted air con use a lot of electricity?
Depending on a few things first: the price of electricity in Australia at the time; whether or not you have solar or a battery; the size of the unit; the brand; the temperature you choose to have it running on; the time it’s operational; and if the building is insulated or not.
Generally, if you run the ducted air con unit at 50%, it will cost you approximately .50 – $1 every hour it runs. A ducted air con unit is by far the most environmentally friendly choice.
Size Approx annual cost
Small – up to 4kw $400 to $600
Medium – 4-6kw $491 to $652
Large – over 6kw $386 to $686
Which is better split or ducted?
For a single room, a split system is ideal. However, if you’re wanting to get air conditioning throughout a whole house or building, then ducted air conditioning is the one you want on the job. It will perform better, be cheaper to run, there won’t have to be a/c units in every room, and you can control the temperature in the whole place with the same system.
Does ducted aircon bring in fresh air?
No air con system brings in fresh air from the outside. However, if you purchase a quality a/c unit, the filter inside it will help purify the air that gets sucked in and pushed back out.
How long does ducted air con last?
There are a few things that come into play here ~ the type of system you have, how often it’s used, and how frequently it’s cleaned. Ducted air con units will last for approximately 20 years. Then, its components become vulnerable to general wear and tear.
If you don’t want a wall-mounted air conditioner in your home or office, then a ducted system is the perfect option for you. They can be connected to every space inside your place, and will be unnoticed with their stylish, low-profile design.
While ducted air con systems can sometimes be more expensive to install, if you require multiple air conditioner units, ducted systems are more cost efficient compared to split systems.
