A ducted air conditioning system consists of a compressor or a large outdoor unit, and an indoor unit located inside the attic with connected ducts that distribute the cold air to various areas or rooms in your home.
Here are the advantages and disadvantages of a ducted air conditioner system that you need to consider.
One big advantage of a ducted air conditioning system is the flexibility it allows in terms of where to place the unit. You can install ducts in the ceiling, walls, or floor. This way, you save a lot of space you may need in the future, like the installation of lights and other aesthetic renovations.
The ducts are not easily noticeable because they can blend in well with your ceiling and a large part of the system is not easily noticeable. This way, you minimise the handling of your AC system by unauthorized users.
Also, ducted AC systems are preferable because it gives your office a professional look. It is the system of choice for most companies, as it does not interfere with the movement of workers in a workplace.
A ducted system allows zoning, which means different temperature zones can be set for various rooms in the house. You do not have to cool all the rooms at the same time. You can customise the way you use the system – run it through the entire house or just on particular rooms.
And this can save money, too. You can cut off air conditioning in a room that has no people, or turn down the thermostat in places where a few individuals stay. You can save on energy costs in the long run.
A ducted system operates with less noise because the “noisy” components are outdoors, unlike a split air conditioning system. This minimises the impediments for a more productive workplace.
These advantages of a ducted air conditioning system can help you decide if it is the right system for you.
