One would be forgiven for quickly becoming overwhelmed when choosing air conditioning for their home! With so many choices and types on offer, it can be difficult to find the right air conditioning unit for your home.

Ducted reverse cycle air conditioning has a range of benefits, making it a popular choice among home and business owners alike. Read on to find out the top reasons for installing a ducted reverse cycle air conditioner into your home this winter.

1. Ducted reverse cycle air conditioning provides value for money

One of the things that people hesitate over with ducted reverse cycle air conditioning is the cost. While the initial outlay of ducted units is higher than wall hung systems, many are surprised to find that it may work out better value in the long term to make the initial investment. Ducted air conditioning can save you money in ways you may not have considered.

  • Ducted air conditioning can be installed to work in every room of your home. Rather than installing wall mounts in every room, the vents provide a non-obtrusive alternative that all run off the one system, saving you on additional running costs associated with multiple units.
  • As a low maintenance system, ducted air conditioners that are looked after are much less likely to need a total replacement in comparison to their wall mounted counterparts. Regular maintenance and replacing components as needed will ensure a system that will last for years, making it a great long term investment.
  • Ducted reverse cycle air conditioning is appealing to many potential home owners; if you decide to sell your home down the track you will be adding value to your home with a ducted air conditioner.
  • The heat pump in an air conditioner is significantly more energy efficient than other forms of electric heating, making it a great money saver in the cooler months.
  • The adjustable settings mean that you can cool or heat as many (or as few) rooms as you like. You will only pay for what you use, and this will be reflected in your electricity bills.

2. Ducted reverse cycle air conditioning can be used all year round

The beauty of having a ducted reverse cycle system is that you have an all year round heating and cooling system. Keeping your home warm in winter and cool in summer, you can utilise your air conditioner all year round, for every room in your home.

Avoid doubling up on two separate units (and subsequent installation costs) with an air conditioner that does it all. A separate heating and cooling system makes for a lot of clutter in your roof – not to mention doubling up on vents. Keep it simple and get a ducted reverse cycle system that does it all.

3. It is an air conditioner that is tailored to your needs

One of the great benefits of ducted air conditioners is the way they can be customised to suit each individual home.

An experienced installation technician will design the layout for optimal performance in your house. The best part? You don’t need to compromise on the aesthetic value of your home with multiple wall hangings. Because the ducting is placed in the ceiling, you can enjoy the perfect temperature in every room of the house, with only the ducts showing in the ceiling or floor.

Wall mounted air conditioning is great for heating or cooling a single room. But unless you want the whole family cramming in on a hot day, you will be better off with a ducted system that can cool each room individually!

On the flip side, if you only need to heat or cool a particular area of the house, the tailor made ducted system has settings that allow you to select the area you wish to isolate, saving unnecessary usage in the rooms that are uninhabited.

4. Ducted reverse cycle air conditioning is environmentally friendly

Did you know a ducted reverse cycle air conditioner is 3 times more efficient when compared to an electric heater?!

For the cool winter months, a heat pump is responsible for reversing the refrigeration cycle. The heat pump, when compared to other forms of electric heating, is significantly more energy efficient. People are often pleasantly surprised when they see the low impact of reverse cycle air conditioning in relation to their overall electricity bill.

The energy efficiency of your air conditioner will have a direct impact on how environmentally friendly it is. When it comes to heating and cooling your home, ducted reverse cycle air conditioning is one of the most energy efficient options you can select.

Because it has the option of zoning the areas you wish to heat or cool, you can also save on excess usage and energy by only using what you need. In addition, the reverse cycle air conditioners are thermostatically controlled. There is no excess wastage in the rooms, meaning you only pay for what you use.

Not only is ducted reverse cycle air conditioning more efficient than its modular counterpart, it’s also the safer option. Some types of electric heaters have the potential to overloaded circuits, which is especially problematic in older houses.

If you are looking for an air conditioner that is environmentally friendly, is value for money, can be customised to your individual needs and can be utilised all year round, ducted reverse cycle air conditioning is the system for you!
