How does a ducted air conditioning system work?

A basic guide to how ducted air conditioning works to cool or heat your home.

There are a couple of main components to a ducted air conditioner -

  • the air conditioning system - which is made up of an indoor unit and an outdoor unit,
  • and the control system which is better know as the zone controls.

The indoor unit is installed inside the roof cavity and is connected to the outdoor unit via gas pipes and electrical wiring. This indoor unit contains a metal coil which is cooled using the refrigerant which is circulated through the unit within the gas pipes. A fan housed inside the indoor unit blows air past the refrigerated coil and down through the air ducts cooling the house.

The cooled or heated air travels down the air con duct and out the outlets in various rooms throughout the house. The air is then slowly recirculated (via slight suction) back through the central return air grill (usually installed centrally within the house) which allows the air to travel back to the indoor unit in the ceiling for re-cooling or heating.

The ducted air conditioner zone control system allows the user to open and close the ducts to certain areas allowing different rooms, or zones, to cool or heat at any given time.

Ducted air conditioning also provides the flexibility to cater for various comfort zones throughout the house. For instance, you could keep the bedrooms several degrees cooler for a comfortable sleeping environment while warming the living areas or lounge.

Very pleased with the installation of fans by Static Electrics. The electrician arrived right on time, installed the fans, cleaned up everything when completed & took away the old fans & all the packings. I will be having Static Electrics do my electrical work in future.

I found Jarvis to be very prompt/respectful and informative. As having never dealt with solar before he answered all my questions patiently and in layman's terms. You should be very happy to have Jarvis on your team and he is credit to your business with his professionalism.Thank you very much Jarvis!

David did an admirable job in installing a new solar inverter to our property. He gave a very clear and concise exp;lanation of how the system worked and what to look for in the event of a system malfunction. It is so satisfying to witness such efficiency!

Nathan from Static Electrics came to diagnose an issue with a split system. Nathan was on time, polite, diagnosed the problem and fixed it. As a result of Nathan's manner and presentation i'll be taking all my future electrical business to Static. Keep up the good work.

Great company to deal with - Static are one of the top rated contractors our company uses. I have also used them personally for Airconditioning work at my property. Nathan was very professionally, tidy and informative. Would not hestitate to call them again.

Luke Ehrenberg

Terrific service. Installers came on time, were friendly and efficient, and even cleaned up after themselves !! Absolutely no hesitation in recommending this company, and will definitely use them again

Anne Hattersley

Jeremy arrived on time, in fact he was a little early, he was clean and well presented in his work uniform and very courteous. He asked a few questions about what our air con was doing, to work out what he needed to do, then got stuck into it. His knowledge and attention to detail was impressive and by the time he was finished, our air con unit looked like it was brand new again. Before the cleaning out of the indoor unit, the fan was hardly blowing any air at all, but once the cleaning was finished and with the unit reassembled, Jeremy turned it on to test everything and the fan was now blowing like a force 10 gale, absolutely brilliant, exactly what we had hoped for, we are now all set for the next summer season. We will absolutely totally get Jeremy back at the end of the next summer season to clean the unit again. Top job we can highly recommend this company.
