Benefits for reverse cycle ducted air conditioning within the home
If you’re looking to make your home cool in summer and warm in winter a ducted reverse cycle air conditioning system in your home could be just the thing for optimising the temperature all at the click of a button.
Reverse cycle ducted air conditioning is the perfect solution for climate control within a property and ensures every room enjoys the perfect temperature year round. With isolated zone areas that can be activated within the system, heating and cooling your property has never been simpler.
Reverse cycle ducted air conditioning systems are focused on comfort and ensuring a better quality of air throughout the home.
How does reverse cycle air conditioning work?
Unlike traditional split system units, reverse cycle ducted air conditioning units work to provide a whole home solution that can condition multiple rooms and areas or one room, all via an easy to use AC system.
The system comes complete with two systems – a ceiling mounted interior duct system in each room throughout the home and an outdoor compressor that is located in a position outside the home to power the system seamlessly throughout the property.
The central thermostat controls is installed in a convenient location within the home such as a kitchen wall or living room wall and is used to isolate the air in specified rooms and to control the temperature and functions of the reverse cycle air conditioning unit.
Zone control allows for different areas to be set up within your home and for airflow to be passed to these ‘zones’ as required. Each reverse cycle ducted air conditioner system has a unique amount of zones available, and these areas can be tailored for each system to meet your exact needs and living conditions. For example, if you work from home and like a particular zone to be cool during the day that zone can be isolated and air conditioned while the other bedrooms and areas that are not being used are not exposed to unnecessary AC.
Reverse cycle ducted air conditioners are a popular choice for homeowners looking to cool their homes in the warmer summer months and warm the property during the cooler months.
How does the ducted reverse cycle air conditioning system work?
While it sounds complicated, reverse cycle ducted air conditioning is actually quite simple.
The process involves a fan gathering heated air from the home via a system whereby the fan draws air over refrigerant where heat is then absorbed from the air; the air is cooled, and then the air is pushed back into the home or property.
The refrigerant works to turn the hot air into a gas, which is then pumped to a compressor outside the home, which then cools the liquid and allows it to liquefy and start the whole process again. The process is used for both heating and cooling.
Things to consider when choosing a reverse cycle ducted system
Reverse cycle is a whole home solution for heating and cooling. If you want your home to be the perfect temperature year round a reverse cycle ducted air conditioning unit creates the perfect environment and creates the ideal temperature at the touch of a button.
There are a few things to consider when you’re making the decision to install a reverse cycle ducted air conditioning system as outlined below
The floor plan for the home
The floor plan of your home is a consideration when you’re planning your reverse cycle ducted air conditioning system. If you’re building from scratch, you can work the system into your plans. Likewise, if you are renovating, you can work on a floor plan that suits the system. If you want to optimise the zones, make sure you have a floor plan available so you can determine the number of levels in the home, dimensions of each room, ceiling height and also the direction the rooms face to optimise the system.
Insulation in the property
It’s important to install adequate insulation in your home to ensure heating and cooling stays within the property and does not escape due to inadequate insulation. Determining the level of insulation will allow for a better understanding of what reverse cycle ducted system is required.
Number of rooms and residents
Consider how many rooms you are looking to install AC for and also the number of people who are living in the space. When you’re making a decision on the size of your system determining the rooms and individuals the unit needs to service is important to ensure the reverse cycle ducted air conditioning system performs to an optimum level.
Cavity space for the air conditioning ducts
If you’re installing the system in an existing property, there are plenty of slimline systems than can fit into the ceiling cavity of an existing space. On the other hand, if the property is under construction you will have more options for selecting a system due to the fact the internal areas of the property are completely exposed during the building process and the ducts and system can be installed without needing to remove existing ceiling cavities.
Outdoor space for compressor
While the outdoor reverse cycle ducted air conditioning unit doesn’t take up a tremendous amount of space, you will need to consider the placement of this unit and find an area that will house the unit should future maintenance be required. Finding a space that is away from bedrooms and neighbours is ideal to ensure the outdoor compressor unit does not disturb you or anyone within sleeping within the vicinity of the unit.
Property construction type
Take into account what your home is constructed with ahead of deciding on your reverse cycle ducted air conditioning system. Homes made from weatherboard may not be as effective to install an air conditioning unit in as opposed to a full brick property.
Why consider buying a reverse cycle ducted air conditioning system
If you’re looking for climate control at the touch of a button, a reverse cycle ducted air conditioner unit will allow you to experience complete comfort in every room throughout every season.
Your home temperature and environment will be controlled via a centralised control panel, and the multi-room application and zoning allows for conditioned air to be circulated throughout the home seamlessly without the noise of traditional air conditioning units.
Enjoy complete comfort in your home every day of the year with reverse cycle ducted air conditioning.
