Climate Ducted Air Conditioning (Heat Pump)

Climate control for your entire home

Ducted air conditioning is the ultimate climate control solution for your whole home or workplace. This system provides heating or cooling throughout multiple rooms with minimal visual impact.

A ducted air conditioning system can be installed in new and existing homes or workplaces. The system is typically installed in the ceiling space or under the floor and is dependent upon the space available. The location of the ducts depends upon the space available.

Ducted systems are highly desirable because bulky and unsightly equipment are concealed from view. In most cases, the only sign of the system is the vents through which the air flows into the room. This is quite a contrast from an obtrusive heat pump mounted on your wall. Bulkheads can be used to conceal some of the ductwork if there is not enough space in the ceiling.

Components of ducted air conditioning (heat pump) systems

A ducted air conditioning system relies on heat pump technology to cool the home. The following components make up the system:

  • A compressor, also called a condenser, is located outside the house and is used to power the system and deliver the refrigerant cooling agent to the indoor unit.
  • Refrigerant pipes and electrical cabling run between the compressor and the air conditioning unit.
  • A central air conditioning unit, also called a fan coil unit, is installed in the house in the ceiling or under the floor.
  • A condensate drain runs from the fan coil unit to an external drain.
  • Ductwork, hidden in the ceiling or under the floor, carries the cooled (or heated) air to each room.
  • One or more vents, or supply-air diffusers, directs the warm or cool air into each room.
  • A return air grill and filter are used to return filtered air back to the fan coil unit.
  • A wired, wall mounted control panel controls the temperature, mode (heating or cooling), and time settings.

Selecting the right size unit for your home

Ducted air conditioners are available in a range of sizes suitable for small to large homes. It is very important to get the correct air conditioner size. If your unit is too small, it will not be able to meet your cooling and heating needs on the hottest and coolest days. Too large a unit will be unnecessarily costly in terms of upfront and ongoing running costs.
