In Australia, air conditioning is a must, especially if you live in the tropics of Queensland as the Summer months are not only hot but humid making it hard to find relief from the heat. Therefore, many homeowners have made the switch to air conditioning as the temperatures continue to rise each year, but which system is best for your home?
Ducted Air Conditioning
Ducted air conditioning is a largescale air conditioning system that cools multiple rooms from a central point. This works by installing ducts throughout the roof or floor of your home and allowing the cooled air out through vents, which create minimal impact on your living space.
Ducted air conditioning is convenient and cost effective if you have a larger home that needs multiple rooms cooled at the same time. You can also use a zoning feature to cool certain rooms as well to reduce your energy usage. This makes ducted air conditioning very versatile for the whole family or for those working from home.
Split System Air Conditioning
Split system air conditioning uses two units to cool your home, the internal and external units. The external unit functions so that hot air can be drawn from outside, cooled down and released into the home through the internal unit. The internal unit is placed in a strategic position within the home so that it either cools down a certain room or living space.
Split system air conditioning is most commonly used in smaller homes or homes where only certain rooms need cooling. This is great for homeowners with smaller dwellings as they can save money on purchasing a smaller system that suits their needs.
Split system airconditioning also comes in a variety of options making it a functional addition to any home. These options include bulkhead, ceiling cassette, console unit and multi head systems. Each is designed to suit specific needs so that you receive the best result from your air conditioning.
The Best Fit For Your Home
If you are looking at purchasing air conditioning for your home then there is a lot to consider. This includes how large your home is, the rooms you want to cool, how large a system you need and the type of system that would suit you best. So where do you go from here?
Well, if your choice is between ducted and split system air conditioning then choosing the best fit for your home is easy!
Ducted air conditioning will suit you if you own a larger home and have a larger budget from your system. Ducted air conditioning is also hidden out of the way and is quieter for those who are thinking of aesthetics and noise.
Split system air conditioning is perfect for those who own a smaller home and are not worried about the internal unit being mounted on their wall. They are a cheaper option than ducted air conditioning if you are worried about price but are still powerful enough to cool your home efficiently.
