Are Ducted Refrigerated Air Conditioning Systems Really Energy Efficient?

25 February 2021

Many properties today can easily opt for different types of air conditioning systems for their rooms and spaces. Some of them may come in portable form factor, while others utilise split type air conditioning units. But one major type of air conditioning systems that can truly work well with a lot of properties and buildings is known as ducted refrigerated air conditioning systems.

Ducted refrigerated air conditioning systems can effectively provide adequate cooling solutions by utilising a network of ducts that are installed all over a property. The condenser, compressor, and air handling unit of these systems are typically installed in the basement, attic, or garage of a property. Alternatively, the systems’ ducts and vents all run through rooms and spaces so they can effectively distribute cool air.

Given the way ducted refrigerated air conditioning systems work, they can easily provide huge energy savings throughout the property. The following elements can significantly support their energy-efficiency as well as the reasons why you should opt for them.

Unified Ducts and Vents

Owners of large residential homes or commercial buildings can easily take advantage of ducted refrigerated air conditioning systems since their network of ducts and vents can be found anywhere. You see, ducts and vents of these systems are normally placed on the roof cavity, allowing them to run on every area of the property. And since the capabilities of these systems can be controlled, the number of areas that will be cooled can be restricted and regulated. Rooms that will be used can attain the needed cool air, while unoccupied rooms can be cut off from the cold air supply. The ability to select the rooms and spaces that will receive appropriate cooling is done through the zoning system.

Comprehensive Cooling

Another element that helps ducted refrigerated air conditioning systems to be energy-efficient is their ability to provide fast, powerful, and comprehensive cooling for huge spaces. Air conditioning systems that do not rely on ducts can take a long time just to cool a huge area. Those that utilise ducts and vents, alternatively, can easily cool huge spaces within a few minutes. With a touch of a button, ducted refrigerated air conditioning systems can cool specific rooms and areas without vising each of them and turning on wall units. The centralised thermostat can also make cooling so much easier as it can be adjusted to provide the preferred temperatures in every room of the property.

These two factors are the main reasons why ducted refrigerated air conditioning systems can be truly efficient in terms of energy consumption. Aside from their energy efficiency, these air conditioning systems can also offer a seamless appearance, less operating noise, and better value for money.
