Ducted Air Conditioning Installation & Services in Mandurah
Are you worried about the extreme temperatures of summer and winter impacting your home environment? Is ducted AC the right choice for your home or office? Or do you want to repair your existing ducted AC? Ducted air conditioning is the most cost-effective, reliable, and efficient way to cool your home or business.
It’s also one of the fastest-growing segments in residential cooling. However, ducted air conditioners are still too complicated for many people to understand how they work, where they can be installed and what makes them better than traditional split-system ACs. Ducted air systems consist of an outdoor unit and an indoor unit connected through ducting for air distribution throughout the home, normally via ceiling vents. Ducted systems allow for flexible placement of air in the house and customisation of the system.

What is Ducted Air Conditioning?
Ducted air conditioning (central air conditioning) is a system where conditioned air flows through a network of air ducts from one central location and is distributed to all rooms at the same temperature. Central control provides convenience because you can tweak it from one place, such as adjusting the temperature of an entire building without being present physically. Ducted systems are perfect for large open environments like libraries or public facilities where people come and go at different times throughout the day, making uniformity difficult if not impossible with other systems.
Benefits of Ducted Air Conditioning Systems
Complete Control of Temperature
One of the best features of ducted air conditioning systems is that they can cool down every room in your home and can even be controlled from one single point. This lets you adjust the temperature and dehumidify and humidify as needed, so there won’t be any dryness anywhere while still getting cooled off. It is a perfect solution for people concerned about their indoor air quality and those suffering from asthma and allergies.
The ducted air conditioning system is quiet, making it perfect for sleeping without the noise of a compressor. The central compressor (outdoor unit) is located outside the home, away from bedrooms. This minimises the humming and noise associated with traditional systems.
One of the best ways to make your AC more energy efficient is by zoning it, which means shutting off cool air in rooms not being used during certain hours. For example, if you want to run your AC at night but don’t need cooling in other rooms or other areas outside a specific room, simply turn them all off on the central control and only send out cooled air where needed!
Reverse Cycle Air Conditioning
A ducted system is a great way to make your home heat-ready during the winter. If you install one of these devices, it will also help save on installation costs by eliminating the need for an additional heating device that would have been required otherwise.
With three bedrooms or more, installing individual split-system units just doesn’t compare with the cost of a ducted air conditioning unit. Installing such an AC not only adds value to re-selling your property, but reduces installation and maintenance costs over multiple rooms while also increasing energy efficiency.
A ducted air conditioning system is almost invisible. Nothing but nondescript vents can be seen above your head. Designing your interior is much easier with a ducted system. When installed in roof space, the air ducts can blend into the ceiling.

FAQs About Ducted Air Conditioning System
