Ducted air conditioning Newcastle
Ducted, reverse-cycle air conditioning
Breeze Air Conditioning is proud to supply and install some of the best ducted, reverse-cycle air conditioning systems in Newcastle. We stock a comprehensive range including systems from ActronAir, Hitachi, Daikin and Temperzone.
Ducted air conditioning allows you to direct airflow to various zones throughout your home. You can independently heat or cool the individual rooms or zones you choose, saving on unnecessary power wastage. Round, linear or 4-way diffusers are fitted to the ceiling to allow quiet and efficient airflow. We supply systems capable of cooling or heating your entire house, right down to just one room, saving you on extra costs.
Why choose ducted air conditioning?
Benefits of ducted air conditioning
Ducted air conditioning has a number of significant advantages. Although it’s more expensive initially than a split system, the additional benefits it brings means it’s a popular choice. Some of the key reasons so many home and business owners opt for ducted air conditioning are:
Quieter than a split system
Ducted air-conditioners tend to be quieter than a split system. With the unit being installed internally throughout the house rather than mounted on your wall, the noise produced by a ducted system is more discreet.
Users have a significant amount of control over the temperature in each room: when not required, the A/C in a room can be switched off. The temperature can also be varied in each room, resulting in a large degree of customisable comfort
More Energy Efficient
It’s usual to have a duct in each room, enabling the entire house to be temperature controlled. In most cases, if you wish to control the temperature in more than a couple of units, ducted A/C is more energy-efficient than two or more split system A/C installations.
Difference between ducted and split systems
A ducted system consists of a single, central fan coil unit that’s normally located in the attic or loft. Ducts from the fan coil unit lead off to each room in the house. The temperature-controlled air travels through the ducts to where it’s needed.
In comparison with a ducted system, a split system A/C installation consists of an outside condenser heat exchanger, with the evaporative heat exchanger mounted on the wall of the room it’s servicing. Each room that requires temperature control will need its own evaporative heat exchanger.
Many homeowners start off with one or two evaporative heat exchangers, then add more as they need to. Ultimately the efficiency of the condenser unit falls with the addition of each heat exchanger, limiting the number that can be run simultaneously.

Ductued Air Conditioning FAQs
There are a few reasons why ducted air conditioning isn’t for everyone. While in the long run ducted air conditioning is almost always the better choice, some customers are put off by the fact that it costs a little more and requires more work to install than ductless air conditioning systems.
Yes – ducted air conditioning systems include a removable air filter which collects dust and lint which travels through the air. This means that the air you breathe at home will be cleaner, and also less likely to set off allergies.
Yes, in most cases it’s best to check and clean your AC filter every three to four months, to prevent the restriction of air flow around the home and to maintain optimal efficiency throughout the system. Cleaning the filter is simple and doesn’t take long: most filters can be cleaned gently using just warm water.
Ducted air conditioning is, generally, quieter than ductless air conditioning. While the air conditioning unit itself can be quite noisy, this can be placed away from busy rooms in the house. Most areas of the home will hear very little from the system, as each room will only be connected to the unit via air ducts.
The cost of installing ducted air conditioning will depend on the size of the installation, but prices start from around $7,500 and increase to $12,000 and above for larger systems. In terms of running costs, this can depend on many factors including how often you run the unit, the insulation of your home, and what temperature you set your air conditioning to. Broadly speaking, it could cost between $0.25 and $3 per hour to run your AC, depending on the size of your home and these other factors.
You’ll be glad to hear that ducted air conditioning is relatively quick to install. In most cases, ducted air conditioning can be installed in a single day, though this obviously depends upon the size of the installation
Ideally, you should get your ducted air conditioning system serviced every 12 months. This will keep your system working efficiently, meaning less energy wastage and better performance.
