A ducted air conditioner operates from one central location to heat and cool all the rooms on the system. It means all the rooms are air conditioned at the same temperature setting. Ducted air conditioning systems are most commonly used in large areas such as workplaces and shopping centres, although they are increasingly common in domestic settings. The air is treated in the central location and then sent by fans through a system of ducts to each room.
The air is treated in a central location and then sent by fans through a system of ducts to each room. The central unit is usually concealed, in a roof space, for example. The circulation of air is usually zoned, allowing you to control the airflow and temperature and turn off any zones.
Most business or home owners shouldn't do extensive AC maintenance themselves - hire a professional for that. For ducted systems, we recommend that you have a professional ducted air conditioning service done every 12 months to keep it running as safely and efficiently as possible. Regular servicing will increase its lifespan and could save you having to pay for expensive repairs.
The absorbed heat is then carried within the gas to the outside of the storage space, where it is condensed back to a liquid and in the process gives up its heat to the atmosphere. This cycle is repeated continuously to achieve the desired temperature within the storage space.
To create zones in a ducted air conditioning system, ducts must be extended to each area and end in an outlet vent where the air is released. To control the airflow of the zone, electrical mechanical valves called dampers are used, with the intensity of the airflow controlled by how much the damper is open.
The simple is no. Split type air conditioning systems are way cheaper to run in comparison to a ducted system. The only limitation to a split system's performance is its small area coverage as compared to the ducted system that can cover multiple rooms. Split systems are also easier to install and more affordable to maintain, which is why they are more popular for homes while ducted systems are more commonly used for large areas.
