Reverse Cycle Air Conditioning – Ducted or Split

DUCTED REFRIGERATED AIR CONDITIONING

The ducted reverse cycle air conditioning is considered as the ultimate entire home cooling solution all year long. This system suits most homes even those with numerous rooms in multi story dwellings. This is one of the popular systems of refrigerated air conditioning Perth homeowners have purchased for their houses. Flexibility comes with this system as it can also provide heating, eliminating the need to have a separate heating system installed.

HOW DOES DUCTED REFRIGERATED AIR CONDITIONING WORK?

A ducted reverse cycle system works using a compressor, coils, refrigerants, and a system of ducts.  A pipe in the system containing refrigerant cools the air, which is then pumped into the home through ducts installed in the roof cavity. This system does not display much of the equipment as the compressor is placed outside and the ducts are on the roof, making it an attractive option for those who wish for their air conditioning system to blend in the house and not stand out. A ducted system is one of the refrigerated air conditioning systems which allows for zoning. With zoning, it is possible for you to switch off the air con in parts of your home that is not in use, minimizing environmental impact as well as increasing savings on electricity. This system is thermostat-controlled offering a range in temperature from 18 degrees to 30 degrees.
