What is ducted air conditioning?
When cooling or heating your home, ducted air conditioning gives you the control over which rooms and zones to be used. A maximum of 10 zones can be used to circulate air throughout your home. The two main components of a ducted air conditioning system are the outdoor condenser unit and the indoor fan coil unit pushes air throughout the house. These units are connected by two refrigerant lines.
How an air conditioner works
The advantages of ducted heating and cooling
- Cool your home in the Summer and heat it in the winter
- One system for the entire house or office
- Great for maintaining an even temperature
- More energy efficient than traditional heating and cooling methods
Ducted air conditioning gives us the ability to control the home or office climate through the use of adjusting temperature, air quality and airflow in warm or cold conditions. Ducted air conditioning units are quiet and very discreet as they are generally located behind walls or in ceilings. This is an aesthetically appealing solution compared to split systems or portable options. Ducted air conditioning is the best option for cooling an entire house making for an ideal solution for families or offices.
How much does ducted air conditioning cost in Brisbane?
As homes and businesses vary in size, layouts, and overall structure, it is difficult to determine a final cost for a ducted air conditioning system. Units will need to be installed in the layout of your own home to meet your maximum efficiency. The typical installation cost of an indoor unit will vary depending on the following:
- The number of air vents you will need
- Where the ductwork will be located for the installation
- The time it will take to install
- The total size of your home
At Quality Air, we give the following estimates depending on the size of your home:
- Small home: $7,500 to $9,900
- Medium home: $9,900 to $11,900
- Large home: $11,900+
These prices are just an estimate and will vary depending on the type of unit, the ductwork, and the number of air vents required. Contact us directly to organise a quote.

While a ducted air conditioning system is a larger upfront cost it is a solution that can service your whole home and is more energy-efficient long term.
