18 Interesting Facts About Ducted Air Conditioners

Ducted air conditioners are a popular choice for Australian homes and with good reason. They are efficient appliances that can cool or heat large areas quickly. They are also relatively quiet when compared to other types of cooling systems.


Air conditioning Canberra owner James Ghabach explains that this type of cooling system has the evaporator coil, part of a refrigeration cycle that typically helps cool homes during the summer and warm in winter. The coil works as a condenser that changes liquid refrigerant to gas by removing heat from the enclosed area. This cold, dense liquid flows through the coil at high velocity to produce chilled air for your home. This system is hidden in the ductwork, hence the name “ducted air conditioner”!


If you want a ducted air conditioner installed at home, here are some interesting facts about them you may want to know about.


  1. When you add a dehumidifier to your ducted air conditioning system you can make it more efficient and save electricity costs by removing moisture from the home’s air before it is cooled. 


  1. Ducted air conditioners work best in homes that are well insulated and where double and triple glazed windows and doors have been installed.


  1. You can improve the efficiency of your ducted air conditioner by keeping your house cooler in summer and warmer in winter so it doesn’t run for as long each day, which means it will use less power to cool down or warm up your home.


  1. When you close all vents except one, the airflow through the vent is stronger than if all vents were open.


  1. Ducted air conditioning systems provide a more even airflow through your home which can reduce drafts from windows and doors that cause you to put on additional heating or cooling when it is already set to the desired temperature.


  1. A ducted air conditioner is much quieter than window type air conditioners because all of its components are housed in the ceiling void instead of residing in a window frame.


  1. You can use a ducted system for heating in winter, simply by reversing the flow of coolant around the system and making sure your hot water service has been turned off before turning on the heat pump. 


  1. A ducted air conditioning system will help to circulate the air in your home and prevent mould from growing in moist, warm environments.


  1. Ducted systems use much less energy than window type air conditioners, making them more environmentally friendly and cost-effective to operate.


  1. A ducted air conditioning system can be controlled by a centralised controller that allows you to choose the temperature in each room of your house, or you can have individual thermostats installed in each room for greater flexibility.


  1. By closing vents in unused rooms, you can reduce the load on your ducted system and save on energy costs. 


  1. If you have a large home with more than one story, you can install a separate ducted air conditioning system for each level to ensure even cooling or heating throughout the house.


  1. You can save money on installation costs by installing a ducted air conditioning system yourself, as they are relatively easy to install if you have some basic DIY skills. 


  1. Ducted systems use a refrigerant gas called R-410A which is ozone friendly and does not contribute to global warming. 


  1. If you have an existing ducted air conditioning system that is more than 10 years old and is starting to lose its efficiency, you can replace the outdoor unit with a new more efficient high-density foam one that will lower your cooling costs. 


  1. If you want to maximize the benefits of your ducted air conditioning system, upgrade it with a heat pump so you can use it for heating as well as cooling your home all year round.


  1. Airborne particles such as pollen and dust are filtered out of the incoming airflow by an activated carbon filter in most modern ducted air conditioning systems which also helps improve indoor air quality and minimises allergens in the home.


  1. Ducted air conditioning systems provide even temperatures throughout your whole home and maintain a comfortable environment for everyone living there including pets and babies by ensuring that no room is too hot or too cold.
