Ducted Air - what is it?

If you're keen to read about the weird and wonderful history of air-conditioning, click here - it's a mad story!

Ducted systems are all about energy efficiency

(Saving Money)

A ducted system is like having multiple air-conditioning systems throughout the home – all running from the one hub, but distributing cool air into each of your rooms. Ducted systems are quiet because the noisy (and hot) bit is usually mounted outside your home – often on the roof). Tis way, cooled air is more evenly distributed. In fact it is this distribution and control of air where new technology has made a real difference.

Temperature management

A temperature-managed system can save up to 30% more electricity than a typical window air conditioner.

When you consider that now a whole home can be cooled rather than just one room, 30% is a big difference. Ducted systems also save money because there is less maintenance. There’s no reason why a good system couldn’t operate smoothly for several decades. For larger homes, you might need a secondary pump to remove hot air in the summer months. But we can help you with that. :)

Many different companies provide remote-control wall-mounted management systems which have improved state of the art temperature sensors and timers. Some can even be controlled by smart phone apps which allow you to switch on and set the temperature of your home before you drive home from work. We deal with two major brands here at Aircon WA.

What does an inverter actually do?

Traditional air-conditioners regulate temperature using a compressor which is turned either ON or OFF. An invertercontrols the speed of the motor which is by far more efficient. This allows for a continuously regulated room temperature. (We’ll be writing more about inverter technology in another post.) Do come back if you're really keen.

Such modern air conditioning systems are ideal for offices and multi-storey constructions as well as your typical home. They may set you back a little more initially when you include installation and laying the ducts but it saves oodles of cash in the long run.

Ask us about our solar installation packages. This is a perfect option for that nasty week in Perth summer when it's too hot to even watch TV. Solar systems are almost free to run. The hotter it gets, the more power the system generates.

We'll be back in a fortnight with even more useful tidbits.
