Can a ducted system cool and heat?

  • Thursday, 27th May, 2021

With the cold of winter upon us, getting out of bed in the morning can be a struggle. It might be time to start thinking about getting a reverse cycle ducted air conditioner installed.

Reverse cycle air means the system can produce both cool air for summer, and warm air during winter. This is a standard function across all air conditioning brands as it combines cooling and heating within one energy-efficient unit. Therefore, it is the most effective way to warm your entire home with electricity.

Ducted heating systems assist to make the home more comfortable throughout the winter months. This is done by reversing the regular settings of air conditioning to warm the air instead of cooling it. When operating in heating mode, the outdoor condenser is cooling the coil as to provide condensate from the outdoor unit. Whilst in reverse, the refrigerant is used to warm the air being drawn inside.

The benefits of having a ducted heating system include:

  • They can be installed in both existing homes and houses under construction
  • Modern systems use the same outlet and duct design, therefore needing only one system for both heating and cooling
  • They have zoning controls to allow the heating to be directed to specific areas within the home, this can lower running costs as air won’t be sent to spaces not in use
  • Ease of adjusting temperature in the home to give flexibility whilst still maintaining energy efficiency
