What is Ducted Reverse Cycle Air Conditioning?

Let’s take a look at how Ducted Reverse Cycle Air Conditioning would work in your home

Ducted Reverse Cycle Air Conditioning is the ultimate in home heating and cooling.

Using just one system, it can keep your entire house at your preferred temperature all year round.

It is comprised of 2 parts, an indoor and outdoor unit, which is sometimes why its called a Ducted Split System.

The outdoor unit is a compressor which works in conjunction with the indoor unit which is located in the roof cavity.

The indoor unit distributes the air which has been heated or cooled to your desired temperature to rooms via a series of ducts and vents in the ceiling.

A Programmable controller allows you set different temperatures for various times of the day and night. Zoning gives you control over what rooms are airconditioned at any time.

The cooling is Refrigerated Cooling, so no matter the temperature outside, the house will stay at your selected temperature.

Due to advances in technology, which have made them more energy efficient and affordable and the fact they uses electricity to heat and cool which benefits those with solar, Ducted Air Conditioners are an increasingly popular choice for both new home builds and existing homes.

Whether your vents are in your ceiling or floor will depend on the design of your house, although it is more common to have ceiling vents for ducted air conditioning.

For houses built on a subfloor, underfloor ducts may be an option provided there is adequate clearance.

For houses built on a concrete slab the ducts will need to be located in the ceiling, again adequate clearance will be required.

In order to determine which size Ducted Reverse Cycle Unit is required for your home, a member from our design team will need to carry out a Heating/Cooling Load Calcuation.

The calculation takes into consideration the size of the rooms required to be heated or cooled, as well as the ceiling height.

Factors such as whether you want to heat or cool the entire home at once, or utilize zoning also come into consideration.

Do you currently have a Gas Ducted Heating and want to know if you can convert it to Ducted Reverse Cycle Air Conditioning?

In the majority of circumstances, you will need to replace the Gas Ducted Heating unit with a Ducted Reverse Cycle Air Conditioning unit.

The existing ducts can be re-used if they are rated for use with Refrigerated Cooling. We use R1.5 insulated ducts, which are insulated to minimize heating/cooling loss. If you only have Gas Ducted Heating (and not Add On Refrigerated Cooling), it is unlikely your ducts would have been upgraded for use with Refrigerated Cooling.

Do you currently have an Add On Cooler?

If you currently have Add On Cooling (not to be confused with Evaporative Cooling), then there is a chance we are able to re-use the ductwork if it is in good condition.

Plus…..exciting news! Brivis have just released a new product which allows you to convert your Gas Ducted Heating into Electric Ducted Heating. However, you need to currently have both a Brivis brand Gas Ducted Heater plus a compatible Brivis Add On Cooler. Check out our Brivis SmartSens page for more information.

Ducted Reverse Cycle Air Conditioner Features

The only system you need to heat and cool your entire home

We only recommend and install units which are built to handle temperature extremes we experience in Geelong & Melbourne, from hot summers to frosty winters.

Zoning is great for saving on running costs as you are only heating or cooling the rooms you currently need, plus its programmable, so it can automatically turn on and off at different periods.

For example, you might have your living areas as Zone A, which you heat or cool during the day and bedrooms as Zone B which you heat or cool during the night.
