So you have finally had enough of the heat and are deciding which cooling system to install.
You can choose from either a split system or ducted air conditioning.
Both have their merits but if you want complete temperature control throughout your home, ducted is the way to go.
How Ducted Air conditioning Works
Ducted air conditioning cools your residential or commercial space through a central unit that is usually installed in the roof space, keeping it out of sight.
The unit draws in air and cools it before sending it through ducts that vent into the ‘zones’ in the building that require temperature control.
Each vent will sit flush to the ceiling so you won’t even know it’s there and it won’t ruin the aesthetics of the room.
One of the major benefits of ducted air conditioning is that it affords you flexible control at the touch of a button.
You can cool the entire home or office from the thermostat as well as create ‘zones’ which enables you to keep certain parts of the space cooler than other areas that aren’t being used.
You can even program your thermostat to come on and turn off at specific times such as in the bedroom before you go to sleep or in the kitchen just before you get back from work.
Modern ‘smart’ air conditioning systems are connected to the internet so you can use their app to tell your air conditioner to come on whenever you want, right from your phone.
On the other hand, split systems are just that – split. Ducted systems cover the whole building and can be precisely programmed so you won’t have to worry about switching units on, or closing off certain areas to preserve the cool air.
Great price with a great look
Many people are put off by the initial outlay for ducted air conditioning but you can save money in the long run.
Having complete control over when and where your system conditions the air means you will use less power overall and that means a lower electricity bill at the end of the month.
If you were to install split system air conditioners in your rooms, each one takes power, maintenance and ultimately they are more inefficient as you have to control each one separately.
Not only that, each split system unit has to be mounted on the wall which can be an eyesore as well as add extra costs for installation.
Ducted air conditioning will be piped from the ceiling so the vent will blend in with the decor and maybe even complement it.
There are solutions to your overheating issues and the best one is ducted air conditioning.
