When it comes to staying comfortable during the scorching Australian summers or cooler winters, ducted air conditioning stands out as a top choice for homeowners. At Southside Air Conditioning & Electrical, we understand the challenges and rewards of installing ducted air conditioning in existing homes. Read on as we walk you through the benefits, processes, and considerations of installing ducted air conditioning.

Benefits of Ducted Air Conditioning

Ducted air conditioning offers several advantages over other air conditioning systems:

  1. Whole-Home Comfort: Unlike split systems that cool individual rooms, ducted air conditioning provides temperature control throughout your entire home.
  2. Aesthetic Appeal: With the main unit hidden in the roof space and ducts concealed within walls, ceilings, or floors, ducted air conditioning is less of an eye sore making it ideal for the aesthetic of your home.
  3. Energy Efficiency: Technology has gifted us many things including ducted systems. They are designed to be energy-efficient, which can help to reduce your electricity bills over time.
  4. Value Addition: Installing ducted air conditioning can significantly increase the value of your home, making it a worthwhile investment.

Assessing Your Home Before Installing Ducted Air Conditioning

Before installing ducted air conditioning, it’s important to assess your home’s suitability:

  1. Roof Space: Adequate roof space is needed to accommodate the indoor unit and ductwork.
  2. Structural Integrity: An inspection will ensure that your home can support the system without compromising structural integrity.
  3. Electrical Capacity: Upgrading your electrical system may be necessary to handle the additional load of the air conditioning system.

The Installation Process

At Southside Air Conditioning & Electrical, we follow a meticulous process to ensure seamless installation:

  1. Initial Consultation: Our experts will visit your home to assess its suitability and discuss your cooling needs.
  2. Customised Design: We design a system tailored to your home’s layout and your specific requirements, ensuring optimal airflow and efficiency.
  3. Quotation and Approval: A detailed quote will be provided, outlining the costs and timeline. Once approved, we schedule the installation at your convenience.
  4. Installation Day: Our licensed technicians will install the system, including the indoor unit, ductwork, and vents. This typically takes a few days, depending on the complexity of the job.
  5. System Testing and Handover: After installation, we thoroughly test the system to ensure it’s operating correctly and provide you with a comprehensive handover, including maintenance tips and usage instructions.

Considerations for Homeowners

When looking at installing ducted air conditioning, keep these considerations in mind:

  1. Zoning: Modern ducted systems allow for zoning, which allows you to cool different areas of your home independently. This enhances comfort and energy efficiency.
  2. Insulation: Proper insulation is crucial for maintaining the efficiency of your ducted system. Ensure your home is well-insulated to prevent cool air from escaping.
  3. Maintenance: Regular maintenance is essential for the longevity and efficiency of your system. Schedule annual check-ups with Southside Air Conditioning & Electrical to keep your system running smoothly.
