5 Benefits of Ducted Air Conditioning you may not have considered
Cheaper that you might think
Ducted Air Conditioning costs more to install and setup than a split system, however this cost will be offset by the overall house cooling. Many homes need to run more than one Air Conditioner, which means more power and servicing.
Ducted Air Conditioners are also required to meet Australian Minimum Energy Performance Standards.

The greatest benefit of a Ducted system is the ability to control the climate throughout your entire home, this will turn your home into its own oasis regardless of what room you are in.

To help your Air Conditioner work at optimal levels, consider using roof insulation to reduce the heat in your home.
Insulation comes in two main categories, Bulk and Reflective.
Some brands combine the two types to better performance.
What to look for:
R-value (resistance to heat flow), the higher the R-value the better the insulation.
Bulk insulation traps air in its layers and resists heat passing through it.
Reflective insulation resists radiant heat using its reflective properties and its ability to re-radiate heat. This insulation requires a minimum of 25mm air layer to work correctly.
If you are thinking of getting an Air Conditioner, make sure you consider the differences before purchasing.
Portable units are very handy as the name suggests, but the difference in cost may not be worth it in the long run.
Portable Air Conditioners are usually around 2kw and use approx the same amount of power to run than the average split system which is significantly larger. This means in the long run you will be paying more for electricity to cool a room than you would with a larger more capable system.
To be sure, call us to discuss your options.
