For bigger homes in Brisbane with a lot of rooms, ducted air conditioning is the most recommended solution.
Ducted Air Conditioning works by having a central system (usually installed on the roof) that disperses the cool or warm air and then ducts distribute it evenly into every room. Choosing this air conditioning system will allow you to control the airflow and temperature in your entire house, as well as turning off a specific zone if not in use.
If your home already has existing ductwork from previous owners, it can sometimes be reused. If your house doesn’t have ducts yet, they should be installed first. This type of air conditioning unit is not the cheapest out there, however it can be a great investment. Before deciding to purchase one, you should know what it is and how it works so you can weigh the pros and cons.
A ducted air conditioning system can cool or heat your entire house using a central unit. It doesn't matter how big your house is, because the system can distribute air evenly. From the central unit, the cool or warm air is distributed through ducts which are then released to vents located in any of your rooms. For heating purposes, a reverse cycle ducted air conditioning system is fit for this scenario. It works just the same, but with a different purpose. You don't have to buy two separate air conditioning units because both heating and cooling can be fulfilled by just the one.
All air conditioning systems have their own advantages and disadvantages, but that could differ based on your situation and what your air conditioning needs are. If you think ducted air conditioning could be your best choice, here are other advantages that you should take note of:
Unlike split type air conditioners which can get quite noisy when run hard, ducted units are not. Since the central unit is either located in your roof or floor, its noise-producing agents are far away from the vents so it does not produce any kind of noise even during the night.
Aside from the aesthetic of not seeing your huge air conditioning unit hanging from your wall, choosing to get a ducted air conditioner helps save wall space. And because the indoor unit is concealed in your ceiling space while the outdoor unit is in the backyard, the air vents are your only reminder that you have an air conditioner. And that is better than drilling a hole in your wall.
With ducted air conditioners, you can choose which zone in your house needs more cool or hot air. You can either increase or decrease the temperature in any room without the other areas being affected. This feature is quite convenient and can help in saving money on electricity costs. WiFi control is also available, allowing you to turn on/off your ducted air conditioning system remotely from anywhere in the world with an internet connection.
