Is A Ducted Air Con Cheaper To Run?


Sydney weather never gets too cold, even in winter. It has been known to cater to the hottest temperatures and heat waves during the summer season. With the warm summer breeze every month, it is no surprise that air conditioning in Sydney homes is as common as a cooking stove.

Most homeowners look for the best HVAC system to add to their homes, with a particular interest in the “AC” part of the system. Unfortunately, the “best” does not come cheap. However, there are many cooling systems out there that can give you quality performance and comfort without compromising your budget. An example of such a system is called ducted air conditioning.

What Is A Ducted Air-Conditioner & How Does It Work?

Ducted cooling units use a single, discreet system to optimize the temperature in any residential and commercial spaces. Whether it is a studio apartment or a 3-story house, a single ducted air conditioner can cool (or heat) every bit of space it has.

This aircon works by installing a central or internal fan coil unit that may be located on the roof, ceiling, under the floor, or outside the house. A series of ducts run from the central unit to the different rooms or spaces of a house. These ducts will then funnel an equally distributed cool air in all the areas of your home.

Ducted ACs can be fitted with an inverter to make the unit more energy-efficient, as well as to maintain optimal operating speed. You also have the option to cool or heat a single room individually—a process called zoning.

Zoning is possible with a thermostat, which controls the temperature and airflow that comes out of the ducts. This means that you can turn on or off any zones in your home to decrease energy consumption and running costs.

Is A Ducted Air Con The Right Choice?

Generally, ducted air conditioning in Sydney is expensive to install BUT cheaper to run, especially for large houses and commercial spaces. A ducted unit is the best choice for you if you agree and want the following.

  • An energy-efficient cooling system that can accommodate large spaces.
  • Evenly distributes air and maintains its temperature even during the fervor months of the year.
  • Save valuable possessions from the humidity build-up in rooms.
  • Full room-by-room zone control
  • Produces less noise but allows more flexibility
  • A very discreet appliance that is conveniently hidden from the eyes of visitors or customers.

An air conditioner system is only as good as its manufacturer. Get several quotes from different reputable suppliers. Choose the one that suits your budget without compromising the quality of the aircon unit. For installations, hire a licensed specialist or a trusted HVAC company to ensure quality work and service.

In the end, it all comes down to your preferences, the size of your space, and how much upfront money you are willing to spend. Every cooling system can live up to its purpose—to supply cool air. However, not all units can give the quality and optimal performance that a ducted air conditioning system can provide.

Just had my air conditioning installed by KYC and am thoroughly impressed by the company as a whole. From the initial meeting at my house through to commissioning they were all extremely polite, friendly, respectful and above all professional. Chris came to my house and came up with a design that no other companies had thought of which suited my house and needs perfectly, and at a better price than the other quotes I received. They came and completed the job in the specified time, tidied up after themselves and said goodbye with a smile. I can’t recommend this company enough.
