– The indoor unit – hidden within the roof cavity and free from view, the indoor unit or fan coil works to distribute the air throughout the home via the ducts and controls the air flow to ensure a perfectly cooled or heated environment.

– Ducts or ceiling registers – this is usually the only part of the AC system you will see within the property, apart from the control panel, and the ducts come in a range of shapes and sizes all based on the room and the style of the property.

– Control panel – this is the central way to control the temperature, features and zoning for your ducted AC system. The control station is a touch pad that works in with the home or office décor and is located in a central position for ease of use. All the zoning and functions for the air conditioner will be controlled through this device.

Professional AC services include refrigerant checks and a full check of the internal and external components of the system as well as a check of the outdoor unit, all essential steps to ensure the unit is working at optimum levels.

Why you need ducted air conditioner

Ducted air conditioner isn’t just for home use. It can also be utilised for commercial spaces, no matter how big or small the area is. Ideal for offices, shops and any area that experiences the extreme heat and cool, ducted cooling and heating works to perfectly climate control any space to any condition you want.

Reasons why you might consider ducted air con for your property include:

Fresh air – ducted systems offer clean, fresh and filters air into your environment that keeps your family healthy and comfortable. Dehumidify areas of a property – often the humidity in the air is hard to bear, and ducted air systems work to heat and cool the air and remove the humidity from areas, which causes condensation. The unit’s safety tray collects the water and catches any overflow and sends it out through a drain.

Low noise – compared with a wall mounted system which will have outdoor condenser units directly outside the window to bedrooms, a ducted system has an outdoor unit that can be placed away from bedrooms and located in an area that is far away from living spaces and areas when you live day to day. This lowers any noise from the system when it is in operation and ensures a good night’s sleep.

Inverter control – many ducted systems have inverter control technology that works to provide a more economical way to operate the AC systems. The inverter allows the unit to vary its speeds and can work to provide a 30% increase in efficiency – which provides lower running costs meaning the system is cheaper to run.

Sleek and seamless design – a ducted system doesn’t have bulky wall units, so the seamless design works into the décor and styling of a property and provides a clean look. Ducts work to push the filtered air throughout the property and provide the heating and cooling required for the perfect climate controlled environment. More information on ducted air conditioning.
