Ducted Is Super Cool On Hot Days

To be honest, every single heat pump we sell will keep you cool over a long and hot summer. Our wall mounted split systems, floor-mounted models and compact cassettes will all do a sensational job. But for overall effectiveness and cost savings, we believe ducted air conditioning is the ultimate home cooler this summer.

Ducted air conditioning, such as the ducted heat pump systems we supply and install, have several advantages over other heat pumps. The biggest one is that a central unit can cool every room through a network of ducting that transport cool air to each space. This means there is no such thing as “hot spots” in your home and you can maintain a constantly comfortable temperature in every room. In winter, when it’s heat you require, the same principle applies and there are no “cold spots”.

Ducted air con systems have a higher upfront price but you only have to invest in one unit and not several heat pumps for each room. So, ducted becomes very cost-effective right from the start and thanks to its unrivalled energy efficiency, you will continue to enjoy the economic benefits for many years – just ensure that you have the system maintained frequently to ensure it keeps running at peak capacity.

We encourage you to get in touch and make the step up to ducted air conditioning. To make your system even more effective, here are a few other things you can do:

  • Before turning on the heat pump, open doors and windows at opposite ends of the house to create a cross-breeze. This will force heat out of the home. Close the doors and windows and your heat pump won’t have to work as hard to keep things cool.
  • The rooms won’t cool any faster if you set a really low temperature to start with e.g. 16 degrees. We suggest you set the appliance at 21 to 22˚C and gradually adjust downwards from there. It’s more efficient and cheaper to do it that way.
  • Try Dehumidifying or Fan Only modes before the full Cooling mode. If these settings keep you comfortable, you’ll save even more money.

As we said right at the start, any of our heat pumps will keep you cool on a hot day. But ducted air conditioning will provide superior comfort right throughout the house, and it can be operated from one remote. Contact us and we’ll happily discuss these benefits and all the other advantages of a ducted heat pump system.
