What is a ducted air conditioning system?
Ducted refrigerated air conditioners consist of one outdoor unit (the condenser) servicing a fan coil which is located inside the roof or under the floor. There is usually a return air grill, which filters the air and feeds the air back into the fan coil. The air is then heated, cooled and cleaned by the ducted refrigerated system, then supplied to each space via insulated flexible or solid ductwork to diffusers, where the air comes out.
Depending on the capacity and brand, a ducted air conditioning system can range from 3.5kW single phase systems right up to 3 Phase, 40kW. The air diffusers (where the air comes out) also come in many different options, from the round (Jet) type, to square MDO (Multi-directional Outlet) to ‘Linear Slot’ (Long skinny diffusers) and customised bar grilles.
Ducted air conditioning systems are connected by refrigeration piping, communication cabling and power supply, similar to single head split systems, however the lineset is a much larger diameter, to allow for larger flows of refrigerant.
All ducted air conditioning systems are reverse cycle, which means they heat as well as cool and all ducted air conditioners installed by EZYAIR have inverter technology and variable speed compressors which make them supremely energy efficient, quiet and reliable.
Ducted air conditioning systems are an excellent choice for heating and cooling multiple rooms at the same time - or a large space but do not want split systems in each room or multiple condensers on the property.
How do Ducted Air Conditioning Systems work?
Ducted air conditioning systems heat, cool and purify air through the vapour compression refrigeration cycle.
Ducted air conditioning systems are usually larger capacity compared to single head split systems as ducted air conditioning systems often will heat and cool larger spaces.
Ducted refrigerated air conditioning installed by EZYAIR operates on the vapour compression process. A thermodynamic process of a refrigerant changing state (from a liquid to a vapour - then from a vapour back to a liquid again) to enable it to absorb and reject heat.
How energy efficient are Ducted Air Conditioning Systems?
Ducted air conditioning systems are one of the most energy efficient forms of heating and cooling available.
As the thermodynamic process of absorbing and rejecting heat is naturally done by the refrigerant changing state, electricity simply runs the sensors, fans and compressor.
As a result, ducted refrigerated air conditioners are more energy efficient than burning gas for heat and can be run on renewable energy, such as solar and batteries.
Why choose a Ducted Air Conditioning System?
Ducted air conditioning system air conditioners are perfect to heat and cool large areas without bulky indoor units in each roomReverse Cycle

How much does it cost to supply and install a Ducted Air Conditioning System?
The typical cost for the supply and installation of a ducted refrigerated air conditioning system should range between $8000 and $30,000.
The exact cost to supply and install a ducted air conditioning system in Melbourne depends on a few factors:
The capacity of the air conditioner
The indoor unit mounting location
The total refrigerant piping distance.
The condenser mounting type
The Switchboard Location
The make and model of the ducted system
