Frequently Asked Questions about Ducted Air Conditioning

Ducted air conditioners are a climate control system capable of cooling your whole home. If you have a reverse cycle ducted AC, it can also heat the whole home.
The cold or warm air is channeled through ducts in your ceiling and comes out of ducts in your ceiling to cool or warm your home.

Ducted air conditioning is more costly upfront than many other air conditioning systems. It can be worth it, however, as only one unit is required to heat or cool the entire home.
Many ducted ACs have zoning capabilities as well which means you can select which rooms are affected, and what temperature they are set to.
When comparing having an individual system for every room, a ducted air conditioner will likely be more cost effective.

The size of the ducted air conditioner that will best suit your home depends on several factors:

  • Size of your home
  • How many rooms you want to heat/cool
  • How well insulated your home is
  • The number of windows and the amount of shade you have
  • The energy efficiency rating
  • And more!

The decision of what size ducted AC to get can become complex very quickly. A licensed technician can help you make this decision with ease.
