Choosing The Right System For Your Home

Technician Name

This will be a dynamic field that you can easily change by adding your own shortcode to the post. Ducted air conditioning is by far the cleanest, quietest and most energy efficient way to bring the comfort of conditioned air to your home or office.


Australia’s weather is getting hotter and it’s not just summer days in Sydney that can be sweltering. With the unpredictable nature of weather at the moment most people are opting to be prepared for any scenario given that it can be hot one minute and snowing the next.

Choosing the right climate control solution for your home may not be as simple as you think, especially if you are a novice. You need to make sure that your system properly cools or heats the area that it needs to and is the right system for your space and environment.

One of the principle things that you need to know when you are choosing climate control systems is that there are four main types that you can choose from. Let’s have a look at what each system is made up of and their benefits to you.

Ducted air

What is Ducted Air?

Ducted Air is short for ducted reverse cycle air conditioning. These systems have a compressor that is installed outside a second unit that will be installed within your roof cavity. The roof unit is then hooked up to the vents that you have installed in your home by ductwork and through this either cool or warm air is circulated through your chosen area.

The benefits of Ducted Air

  • It cools your entire home – this type of system makes it easy to control the climate in the whole house;
  • Simple to use – most are controlled with timers making it easy to just set and forget;
  • Divided into zones – just cool the areas that are being used or the whole house depending on what you need;
  • Cool air is distributed evenly – no swelter spots that the family all avoid;
  • Tailored solutions – you can buy a system to suit your home regardless of how small or large;
  • Quiet operation – the operational noise is outside of your living areas;
  • Property value – adds to the overall value of your property.

Split system

What is a Split System?

Split systems also comprise of two units. There is the compressor that is located outside and a wall hung head unit that is located inside the room that you want to cool. Instead of ducts the units are connected by copper pipes that transport refrigerant.

The benefits of a Split System

  • Easily installed – with no ductwork installation is much simpler;
  • Easy to maintain – most have washable filters and only need cleaning occasionally;
  • Quiet – they are very quiet to use;
  • Economical – they are not expensive to run with small fan motors and timed usage;
  • Easy to use – units generally have a remote control and thermostat making controlling the indoor temperature straightforward.


Multi split system

What is a Multi Split System?

A multi split system has the capacity to have up to eight wall mounted, floor mounted or ducted units of varying capacities attached to one outdoor unit. These systems are ideal for multiple indoor locations that need to be separately controlled.

The benefits of a Multi Split System

  • State-of-the-art technology – they are energy efficient whether running one or multiple units;
  • Scalability – suitable for any size structure;
  • Economical use of space – with one external unit running multiple indoor units less space is required for installation;
  • Independent management – every unit can be controlled using its own individual remote.

Ducted gas heating

What is a Ducted Gas Heating?

As the name suggests, ducted gas heating heats your home through a series of ducts strategically installed around your home. The ducts are attached to a central heating unit and may be installed in either your floor or ceiling.

The benefits of Ducted Gas Heating

  • Even heating – heat your entire home with no cold spots that everyone avoids;
  • Efficient in all temperatures – these systems work efficiently regardless of how cold it gets outside;
  • Zones – by being able to heat each zone separately, save money by switching off for unused areas;
  • Moister air – gas systems produce heat that is moist when compared to wood and reverses cycle systems which is less likely to cause irritation;
  • Heats quickly – you don’t have to wait a long time for your house to start heating up.
