how ducted air conditioning works

How Does Ducted Refrigerated Air Conditioning work?

In a Ducted Refrigerated Air Conditioning system, an outdoor unit (Condenser) is positioned outside the house, an indoor unit (Central Fan Coil) is concealed in your roof cavity and connected to a network of ducts running through your home.

This form of Refrigerated Air Conditioning filters air to improve air quality and also reduces humidity, making it a better choice for humid climates such as Melbourne. It also boasts a heating function as well, making it easy to maintain the perfect temperature no matter the time of year.

Ducted Air Conditioning is also known as reverse cycle air conditioning due to its ability to reverse its function to deliver heated air. It works just like a Split System, the cooling function can take out warm air and replace it with cooled air, while the heating function achieves the opposite.

What Are the Running Costs of Ducted Refrigerated Air Conditioning?

A standard Ducted Air Conditioning costs around $1.5/hour to cool in summer, and $1.2/hour to heat in winter.

However, the running cost may vary depending on the following factors:

  • Size icon

    Home Size

    The bigger the house, the higher capacity (kW) Ducted AC if required, the higher the running cost it will be.

  • Star rating icon

    Energy Star Rating

    Energy rating determines how efficiently your system uses energy, with higher star ratings resulting in better savings.

  • Installation icon


    The better insulated a house is, the less a ducted air con system will have to work, resulting in lower running costs.

  • Zoning icon

    Zoning Capability

    Zoning options allow you to only heat/cool the zones you need rather than the whole house resulting in bills savings.

Also, there are a broad range of Ducted Air Conditioning brands & models in Melbourne which may result in different running costs.
