Benefits Of Ducted & Reverse Cycle Air
1. Temperature Control All Year
Whether it’s cold or hot outside, ducted/reverse cycle systems can ensure your home is the perfect temperature any time.
2. We Can Add Ducts Anywhere
Air ducts can blend into your décor seamlessly, being hidden in the floor, the ceiling and on the walls.
3. Control The Temperature Of Your Whole Home
Don’t cool one room—cool the whole house. It is possible to control these systems to keep the whole house at one temperature, or adjust the temperature on a room-by-room basis (depending on system design).
4. Save Money
Keep your costs down by minimising how hard your system is working. Once you achieve an ideal temperature, the system will only run when needed. Smaller systems and portable options run longer and harder, easily costing you more over time.
5. Less Noise
Compared to smaller systems, these are much quieter. Since the majority of the system is hidden behind walls and outside, you’ll hardly notice it is there.
Frequently Asked Questions
Are these systems quieter thank smaller, portable air conditioning systems?
Yes, these systems are quieter than other systems that are room-centric. Due to their installation and design, the majority of the noise components are hidden behind walls or outside. This limits the noise dramatically.
If these systems cool/heat the whole home, are they more expensive than a room-centric system?
It depends. If you only want to cool a single room in your house, then a ducted system will be more expensive. However, cooling your entire home with a single-room system or many single-room systems will often be more expensive in the long run.
How long should a ducted system last?
In most cases, a ducted system should last between 10 and 20 years. Please speak with our experienced staff at Chill-Rite Refrigeration & Air Conditioning to discuss your site requirements.
Is ducted air conditioning energy efficient?
Ducted air conditioning uses one ducting system to distribute conditioned air throughout a building. These systems can be highly energy efficient when installed and used correctly because they require only a single unit.
Ducted air conditioning is an especially efficient choice for large spaces where a typical split system will struggle. Ducted systems with zoning are an even more efficient option because you can turn off heating or cooling rooms you’re not using. You can also set up an automated schedule so your system only runs when the temperature drops too low or high.
What are the main benefits of ducted systems?
Ducted air conditioning has many benefits, including flexibility, versatility, and consistency. These systems can effectively cool or heat an entire home at the click of a button. It is also a great space-saving and aesthetic option if installing wall or window-mounted systems isn’t viable.
How much does a ducted air conditioning system cost?
The cost of installing ducted air conditioning in your home will depend on the type of system and the size of your home. In general, you can expect to pay from $5,000 to $8,000 for a small home and $8,000 to $25,000 for large, multi-storey buildings.
How often do ducted air conditioning systems require servicing?
Regular servicing is essential for maintaining an efficient air conditioning system. We recommend arranging a service once per year to keep your system running optimally.
Is ducted air conditioning expensive to run?
With rising energy prices, many homeowners worry about the cost of running a ducted air conditioning system. Thankfully, you can rest assured that ducted systems are affordable to run, especially since you can set them up to only run when needed.
The cost to run your ducted air conditioning system will depend on the size of your home and how often you use the system. Generally, you can expect to pay between $1.00 and $3.20 per hour for cooling and $0.52 to $1.44 per hour for heating — a worthwhile cost for comfort!
Do ducted air conditioners need regassing?
While some air conditioner types require regular regassing, this isn’t usually necessary for ducted systems, especially if it is installed correctly.
A ducted air conditioning system will only need regassing if its pipes degrade over time or the pipe connections are not properly fitted. If you have your system installed by a licensed and experienced professional, there should be no need to ever have the system regassed!
