Your Residential Air Conditioning Questions Answered

Installation for ducted AC is more expensive. However, ducted aircon can be more cost-effective to run. New ducted air conditioning systems usually divide the house up into zones, and this is cheaper to run than the other aircons. Split AC systems are cheaper to install. However, they only cover a small area compared to a ducted system, so they are best for smaller properties.

In both new and existing homes, ducted air conditioner installation is an excellent choice for replacement or first-time installation. Your home or office will never suffer from hot or cold spots again after installing a ducted air conditioner. With zonal control, purified air is evenly distributed to the areas needed and runs smoothly, efficiently, and quietly. 

When it comes to installing ducted air con in an existing home, it is usually still quite an easy process. Some questions arise, such as Is the home single-storey or multi-storey and how much space is there in the ceiling cavity?

It is initially more timely to install, but central air conditioning controls the climate of the whole home and offers higher energy efficiency —a key component that may mean money back in your pocket with ducted systems.

Features of raked ceilings may make it trickier to install modern heating and cooling systems. Luckily there are ways to navigate around their quirks in order to enjoy temperature control in your home.

Our In House Mechanical Engineer enables us to design tailor-fit solutions for ensuring your space is comfortably climate controlled. We use all the knowledge and experience from our commercial projects to design super-efficient residential systems and install them with very high standards of quality.

Reverse cycle air conditioning refers to a refrigeration cycle that can provide both “heating and cooling” solutions. This is done by reversing the refrigeration cycle so that the system can heat in winter and cool in summer.
The entire system is efficient, adaptable, and flexible. Air Smart Air conditioning has an array of air conditioner options that have a reverse cycle feature for the ultimate
heating and cooling solution in Gold Coast.

The outdoor unit is placed in position and the refrigeration pipes and the electrical interconnect are run from the outdoor unit to the indoor unit. Holes then need to be cut for the supply air diffusers and then these diffusers are fitted.

We have been offering air conditioner installations, air conditioning repairs, designs and services for over 15 years as one of the top air conditioner companies on the Gold Coast.

The need to have the exterior unit relatively proximate to the head units will affect whether this is a suitable solution for your property.
