  • Thursday, 11th August, 2016

You’ve heard ducted air conditioning is a great investment but you’re not sure whether it is the right option for you? Listed below are the top seven important questions that you should know the answers to before you install ducted air conditioning in your family home.

How does ducted air conditioning benefit myself and my family?

Having ducted will immediately improve your lifestyle and comfort levels within your home for you and your family. You will ultimately be more comfortable and won’t have to struggle with the summer heat or winter chill. Ducted air conditioning is also an asset that will simultaneously increase the value of your home if you consider selling your property.

  1. Will installing ducted air conditioning improve my home air health?

Yes it will. Behind the return air grill is a removable air filter (hinged) which collects and prevents dust and lint travelling through your home. This gives you a cleaner and healthier environment to live in which is good for your families wellbeing.

  1. Will using the air conditioners timer improve energy efficiency?

Yes it will. Setting the timer will minimise the hours your air conditioner is in use. You can also set the timer to turn your air conditioning on early in the morning (e.g. 5am) during the summer months to counteract the heat before the sun comes up so your air conditioner doesn’t have to work as hard. This will improve energy efficiency immensely and save money on your power bill. 

  1. What does reverse-cycle mean?

Reverse-cycle ultimately means that the refrigeration cycle can be reversed in your air conditioner. Therefore you have total climate comfort with the convenience of cool or warm air, perfect for keeping you comfortable through both summer and winter.

  1. Will air conditioning affect my young children?

Yes, in a positive way. Children and infants struggle with the summer heat and it can have serious consequences, especially living in sunny Queensland where the highest temperature recorded has been 46.9°C. The purpose of air conditioning is to keep you and your family comfortable. It has been proven that children learn better and pay more attention at school when they aren’t affected by the heat.

Keeping your baby comfortable is important, which is why air conditioning is so crucial, especially during sleeping hours. A constant temperature of 20-22°C is appropriate for an infant or child. Although, certain precautions should be put in play such as making sure your air conditioner is professionally serviced and cleaned at least once a year to prevent germ build up and restriction of air flow.

  1. Will air conditioning affect my family’s allergies?

Taking into consideration that a ducted air conditioning system should be serviced by a professional at least once a year, air conditioning will improve the air quality of your home. It not only cools and heats the air but passes it through filters before you breathe it in reducing allergens and bacteria in the air. If your family members suffer from allergies, getting ducted air conditioning could improve their lives considerably as it will improve the air health in your home. We can also provide Hypersan filters which will increase the filter levels if required, as an added layer of protection for your family.
