Air conditioners in Brisbane really get a work out during the summer months. We all know that keeping cool with air conditioning is a handy little necessity here in Queensland. No matter what system you have, from a ducted air conditioning system to a split air conditioning system, there is one thing that can assist them both and save you some serious pennies. What is it? We hear you ask. Ceiling fans we say! Ceiling fans can really help circulate that sought after cold air to maximise the effect of your air conditioning and reduce your air conditioners work out. The ceiling fans circulate the air, they cost next to nothing to run, and they drop the temperature down quite nicely.
The constant Zone is a zone(area) that is always supplied air while the system is running. The purpose of the Constant is twofold. It mixes cool air (or hot air) into the air being returned to the indoor unit. The temperature sensor is in the return air. This sensor controls the amount of cooling or heating of the air flowing through the system. The constant also acts as a spill zone. e.g.if only one bedroom(zone ) is turned on and there is no constant zone the following will occur.
Controllers determine the level of comfort in each area of your home, by changing the volume of air delivered to each area.
Basic Zone Controllers are capable of turning zones on or off. In a well designed ducted system a home will be divided into zones. The zone controller can shut off the supply of air to areas (zones) that are not being used. This has a twofold effect -saves on running costs and provides greater flexibility for more air to be used in other areas.The more zones the better the flexibility.
Ducted or wall splits? Which one would you chose for your home.
