Now that we are moving into cooler temperatures across Geelong, the Bellarine and Surf Coast, we rely on our heating systems almost daily, so it’s important that your home and office keep you and your visitors warm and cosy. It so nice to arrive to work to a heated office, or after a big work day to open your door at home to a breath of warm air. One of our most popular heating systems is Ducted Air Conditioning. Let us explain why our customers love this air conditioning system so much.
What is Ducted Air Conditioning?
Ducted air conditioning systems are ideal for heating and cooling your house or office. The fact it is “two units in one” (heating and cooling), appeals to so many people. Although initially a more expensive system to install, their energy efficiency with all in one climate control can be very cost effective over time. Ducted air conditioning provides the perfect comfort and are quieter and more discreet, as the main system is installed outside and stylish air vents are positioned throughout the home or building in each room, allowing zoned temperature control.
Is Ducted Air Conditioning worth the cost?
Ducted air conditioning can be a very effective solution, but it is definitely worth understanding the factors that can influence your choice, before deciding on the right system for your home or office.
1. Building – a bigger building, needs a bigger unit. The more rooms and the more storeys, generally the more outlets and the more ductwork that is needed during installation of the system. The more outlets, the more cost, so it is definitely worth chatting to our team before making a decision, We are experts in understanding what air conditioning unit would be ideal for your residence or commercial building. Other building factors we consider are the type of building construction, the number of levels, the amount of insulation and ceiling space, the amount of outdoor space and the type of power required, standard or three phase power.
2. Budget – It’s vital that you firstly get our team to look at your requirements and then we can provide you with your options to suit your budget. Although every place is different and has individual requirements, as an example a standard 2 bedroom home with one lounge area and a 7KW system with installation can cost up to $7500, whereas a single level 4 bedroom home with a 10KW unit and installation can be around $10,000. For larger multi-level commercial buildings the costs can be upwards of $20,000 with installation, although quotes would be provided before installing any product.
3. Brand – at MakoAir we work with leading brands that we know and trust including Mitsubishi, Daikin, ActronAir, Fujitsu, Temperzone, Samsung and Panasonic. Each brand has different features and suitability depending on your needs. We will recommend the unit and brand that would be suitable for your home or office. When it comes to ducted air conditioning cheaper is definitely not better. Installing trusted brands will save you energy efficiency and money in the long term.
Why choose Ducted Air Conditioning?
A ducted air conditioning system has many benefits including energy efficiency. These systems are efficient in that each room/zone can be individually controlled, so one room can be warmer than another. Rooms not in use can also be turned off to save money. You can also set timer controls so they only come on when you tell them. Our clients also love how quiet ducted air conditioning systems are and as technology advances they seem to be getting even quieter. Even though the installation is thorough with ductwork and vents etc, the components are discreetly hidden away, so aesthetically they look great in homes and offices. Ducted air conditioning can also have features to purify the air in the room, which is great for asthmatics, or those suffering from allergies or breathing problems.
