HVAC: Keeping Your Cool In the Summer

Hey! My name is Danny and this is my new HVAC blog. HVAC might seem like a really boring subject, but have you ever considered that when you enter the local shopping mall or your place of work, the only reason it feels comfortable is because of the complex HVAC systems. I only came to truly appreciate my HVAC system when it stopped working. It was a really hot day in Sydney and I came home from work to discover the inside of my home was hotter than the surface of the sun. I called in a contractor who fixed up the HVAC system and gave me some great tips. Since then, I have been finding out all I can about the world of HVAC.

Understanding the Ducted Air Conditioning

When choosing an air system for your property, it's important to weigh up different options including their pros and cons.  You want to select the perfect system. Ducted air conditioning is a popular temperature control system. This post outlines what it is and what its benefits are.

What's ducted air conditioning?

This is a system that works by pumping cool air from a cooling unit through different ducts which end in vents, hence cooling your room. Ducted air systems are suitable for cooling large spaces, making them perfect for commercial properties that need to use one system for simplicity purposes. Contractors install an internal unit, often placed under the floor or in the ceiling, and then connect it to an external unit outside the property.

It's simple to use this system, and it's also efficient; its temperature, operation hours and air-conditioned zones can be adjusted with a single control panel.  The units have an option of reversing cycle conditioning whereby, a unit is used to heat and evenly distribute the air. This is useful during the winter months, making a ducted air conditioning system essential all year round.

The benefits

This air conditioning system offers a wide range of advantages than other air conditioning methods. Some of them include:

High control

This is the primary benefit ducted air conditioning system offer. They allow you to cool the entire property or some of the rooms. This feature makes the system perfect for large properties where some rooms require constant cooling while others do not. This flexibility even extends further; you can set the system to cool different rooms according to your temperature needs. It's also possible to set timers to allow consistent functioning just the way you need it.


Another benefit is that you can control the cooling zones to conserve energy. When not cooling unnecessary spaces, you'll save on bills and also save the environment.  Note that installation costs are higher than the alternatives but the cost will be offset as you save money each month through an efficient system.

Decreased noise

Air conditioning units such as split systems emit a constant hum. This noise can be frustrating and distracting. Ducted systems operate more quietly due to their favourable configuration of their working paths. This means your home will be cooled and you won't experience any noise distractions.

A ducted air conditioning system is the best system you can install on your property, whether at home or the business.
