Ducted heating and cooling systems are an energy-efficient and cost-effective way to keep your home comfortable all year round. It works by using a single system with ducts that distribute heated or cooled air to different parts of the house or commercial building.
This system is great for large spaces since it can be zoned in order to control the temperature of individual rooms. It also provides better air quality as the air is filtered before being distributed throughout the home.
The installation process itself is relatively simple, but you must call in professionals to make sure that it’s done according to Australian Standards.
How do ducted heating and cooling systems work?
Ducted heating and cooling systems use a series of ducts connected to a central unit. The central unit contains the necessary equipment, such as an evaporator coil, condenser, compressor and blower fan.
The warm or cool air is then circulated through the ductwork to heat or cool the home. If you have a zoned system you have, you can control the temperature in each room individually or as a whole. Read more about zones below.
Is it cheaper to run a split system or ducted heating?
When it comes to heating and cooling, the two main options are split system and ducted.
Split systems are usually cheaper to install, as they require only one outdoor unit that can be installed on the exterior wall of a single room or area. They are basically easier to install than a ducted system, which requires multiple units and more complicated installation requirements.
Ducted systems are more expensive to install but can also provide effective heating for larger areas. This makes them a better option for larger homes or businesses where multiple rooms need to be heated simultaneously.
In terms of running costs, both types of heating can be energy efficient if properly maintained and serviced regularly. Ultimately, which option is cheaper will depend on your individual needs and the size of your property.
If a ducted system is the better choice for your property, you can save on energy costs by setting specific temperatures for each area depending on usage and time of day.
Does ducted heating cool as well?
Ducted heating is a great way to keep a home warm during the colder months, but can it also cool a home? The answer short is yes!
Ducted heating systems are multi-functional and can both heat and cool your home. They use reverse cycle technology which works by transferring heat out of the house in summer and bringing warmth inside in winter. These systems are ideal for large areas because they provide even temperatures throughout an entire residence.
In addition, ducted heating systems are energy efficient and you can save money on electricity bills over time. If you’re looking for a reliable and cost-effective way to keep your home comfortable all year round, then ducted heating is definitely worth considering.
How do you add cooling to ducted heating?
Adding cooling to a ducted heating system can be easy. Generally, it requires an additional unit and some ductwork modifications to ensure proper airflow and distribution of cooled air.
Before we can add cooling to ducted heating, we need to inspect the existing system first. This allows us to know the necessary modifications in the ductwork to make sure that the design and the actual installation will go smoothly.
The time it takes to complete the actual installation process will depend on the complexity of the job and equipment required. You can get in touch with us to schedule an assessment and inspection. We’ll make sure that you are able to enjoy having both cooling and heating capabilities all year round from one single system.
Can you add zones to an existing ducted air conditioner?
It is possible to add zones to an existing ducted air conditioner but it may not be feasible for all homes.
We can add zones to an existing ducted air conditioning system usually by installing a zoning system, which includes several dampers in the ductwork that can open and close the airflow to each zone. Each zone can be independently controlled, that is, you can adjust the temperature in each room or area of your home or commercial building.
A zoning system allows you to save energy by limiting the amount of air conditioning used in areas that are not being used. Talk to us about professional zoning system installation. You can direct more air to certain rooms while reducing it in others. This makes it easy to customize your home’s comfort level based on your needs and preferences.
