Temperature control

No matter your age or health, the heat can take the wind out of your sails and be a challenge when you are trying to relax or work, having the power to temperature control your living or working environment is a particularly powerful tool for creating the perfect space in your home or office.

Whether it is keeping warm in winter or cool in summer, temperature control allows individuals to be perfectly comfortable night and day. Whether you like the idea of different temperatures for each room or a centrally controlled temperature throughout your house, having the ability to temperature control your home is a massive benefit for ducted air conditioning users in the summer months. Each duct can be adjusted via a central control to the exact temperature you like allowing people with health concerns or specific air conditioning requirements to enjoy the exact temperature they enjoy in specific rooms.

Smartphone controlled air conditioning

Imagine driving towards your home or office and being 10 to 15 minutes away and being able to activate the ducted air conditioning so that when you arrive the home is perfectly cooled and the exact temperature you like upon arrival.

In the summer months in particular, having the ability to control your air conditioning all via your smartphone or mobile device is an exciting option for property owners. The ducted air conditioning system is easily activated by your phone and you can arrive in comfort knowing that your air conditioning is at the perfect temperature the minute you walk into your home or office.

Seamless and works with your decor

Unlike split system air conditioning, which can be bulky and unsightly, ducted air conditioning systems are integrated into the walls and roof of your home or office, with only the duct vents appearing to the resident. Seamless and easily integrated into your home décor and styling, ducted air conditioning does not stand out like split system units and is installed in the roof, wall or floor cavity providing you with a really clean and simple look and feel and without the need for outdoor units near each window or wall.

Zoning creates a cool climate in your home

If you and your kids are relaxing in the TV on a chilled Sunday and you just want this particular room cooled during the day, ducted air conditioning provides the option of zoned areas that can be heated or cool selectively rather than the whole house needed to be air conditioned. The zoning function is particularly helpful for people that work from a home office and allow for one zone to be heated or cooled without the entire property needing air conditioning.

Whisper quiet so you can sleep at night in comfort

Ducted air conditioning units are whisper quiet and allow the residents of a home to sleep soundly at night without the need for a noisy fan or split system air conditioning unit. During the summer months in tropical and inland parts of Australia, the temperature can soar even in the evenings and getting a good night sleep can be a challenge. Ducted air conditioning provides the benefit of discrete and quiet air conditioning that can be isolated as required for your enjoyment. Sleep soundly with a comfortable ducted air conditioning unit during summer that takes the edge of the heat and humidity.

Adding a conditioner adds value

If you’re looking at selling your home, having a ducted air conditioning unit adds significant value to the property. Air conditioning is a feature of a home and having a ducted air conditioning unit is a massive drawcard for potential buyers in Australia. Heating and cooling a home or office is a challenge and having a system in place, no matter how often you use it, is a huge benefit for the resale of a property.

One system will usually mean less servicing

If you have six individual split system air conditioning units, it means six sets of maintenance whereas if you have one ducted air conditioning unit it is just the one set of maintenance and more likely less chance something will go wrong. The servicing and maintenance of a ducted air conditioning system is affordable and with the one central outdoor unit, there are less changes of an issue for your air conditioning system.

Filtered and dehumidified air to the property

In warm and humid summer environments, asthma and allergies can occur and ducted air conditioning units have the option of filtering and dehumidifying the air to ensure it is comfortable and clear for individuals with allergies. Summer months can bring out a wide range of allergies and having a system in the home or commercial environment that works to reduce these issues and allergies can improve the lifestyle of your family considerably.
